Hi Keka and congrats on sending in your package!! Well, my husband to be is from Mexico but he didn't to get the criminal record. So I'm assuming that you're not going to need it. But its always better to be safe than sorry. Hope this helps!

Best Wishes!

Everyone needs the police certificate, whether you have a criminal record or not. It is required for every place you have lived more than 6 months (12 months for some Embassies) since you were 16 years old.

The police certificate is appected by the Consulate or Embassy for one year. So you can get it now if you think your interview is in about 5 months.

Um I can't speak for the K-1 visa, but Packet 3 that Ciudad Juarez sends out for immigrant visas says the following:

http://ciudadjuarez.usconsulate.gov/root/pdfs/packet_3_complete.pdf

that police certificates are not available from various countries including Mexico, so you should not get them. I would guess that if you have committed any sort of crime you would still have to bring the record, though. Missing_my_Amor is doing a K-1 through CJ so I would think her word would be correct. (sending good wishes your way M_m_A!!) I definitely know they are not needed for immigrant visas as the Packet says so. However, keka, I believe you were the user talking about a police record from some other country, so I would think if you were there for a fairly long time that that might be more of a concern. Anyhow, it would probably be helpful for you to do some internet research on police certificates and k-1s.

Here's what the State Department says: http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_2994.html#Applying

Good luck!

I am sorry I did not check before I posted my GENERAL reply which is for most countries. Mexico does not have Police Records available. You can check this by looking at the Reciprocity Table on the DOS web site. Look here:

http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/reciprocity/reciprocity_3622.html

Police Records

Unavailable.

Sorry, good luck.

That is exactly the kind of official document I was looking for. Audy_Rob, the OP was asking about South Korea before...can you verify that she does not need to worry about that as well? I think that is what I understood from the South Korea page, but I'm more of a beginner in terms of immigration data.

To the OP, good luck!

Yes, South Korea is the same situation. You cannot obtain police records from South Korea. The Embassy considers those records unobtainable. You can go to the Department of State web-site and search for Reciprocity. Then set the country to South Korea. Scroll down to Police Certificate or records. You can only obtain those records if you are currently living in South Korea.

The US Embassies consider South Korea Police Records Unobtainable. (Means you can't get them. So they do not expect you to provide them. OK ???)

No Police Certificates for Mexico and South Korea.

Good luck to all of you.
