Recommended Posts

Well, the day that Rich and I have been waiting for has finally arrived, but I haven't thought very far ahead of the approval. I would appreciate any advice on what to expect next. Is there anything I should start to do? About how long until we get our interview, and when do we find out the date? Please let me know what I should be doing right now.

Have you applied for a UK police certificate? They take pretty much 40 days. Get on that tomorrow if not!

How do I go about doing that? Do I do it, or does my fiance have to do it, and who does he contact? I really appreciate all of the help!

Whoever the UKC is applies. It's 10 quid.

http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/inde...&cty=London

Police Certificate: (To obtain a Police Certificate in the UK, go to your local police station and request a form called "Subject Access". Send send this with the ten pounds fee to the Data Protection Officer of the police force for the area you are resident in. This form is then sent by the police to Scotland Yard and the results are supplied to the individual requesting them within a statutory 40 day time limit. If you're waiting for your certificate try 0171-230-3751 to see what state it's at.)
