Belarus Police Certificate Question Again

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I understand where to go to get the application for police document in her now oblast of Minsk. She also has lived in 2 other cities in Belarus. One city is in a different oblast. Does my fiance have to also go to this other oblast and again get another application for police certificate. Also she is divorced. Does she have to do applications for police certificate in both surnames? In other words are we to get 3 police certificates? Thank you

Wow, a lot of questions.

Some Embassies/Consulates write 6 months/12 months for any place you lived, you will need a police certificate. How long was your fiancee in these other two cities and was she 16 years or older. Only one was a different region or oblast. It seems they search based on five different oblast or region and she has lived in two. If she was 16 or older when she lived in the other oblast, then yes I think she needs a police certificate from that oblast, but I think she can write away requesting it if it is difficult to obtain in person.

I would expect the form she fills out requesting the police certificate would ask for ALL names she has used. It is the proper place to put all of her names. Then the police "might" do a search of all of her names. If not, then you either should request multiple police certificates from the region in which she changed names.

So it is at least two (depending on her age) possibly three police certificates. If you want to try, you could attemp to send an email to the Polish Embassy in Warsaw.

Good luck

Appears that the one PC for Belarus will cover ALL regions

Police and Prison Records

Available for the period an applicant resided in Belarus. Applications should be made in person to the respective regional office of the Center for Information and Analysis of the Ministry of Interior. If an applicant lives outside Belarus, an application should be filed with the respective Belarusian diplomatic mission abroad. The waiting period on applications made in the country is two weeks. For applications made abroad, there are no standard time limits.

Yes, it might be the case, might not be the case. I got the information I gave to him yesterday from the Canadian Immigration web site for Belarus:

From the following link:

http://www.cic.gc.ca...ope/belarus.asp

How to obtain a police certificate

Belarus

Do I need to provide a police certificate when applying for permanent residence?

Yes.

How and where do I obtain one?

Local Requests

Applications are available upon request from the regional departments of the Ministry of Interior of Belarus (Управление Внутренных Дел). Applicants must present a valid passport and pay the applicable fees.

Please choose the oblast (province) in which you reside for more information:

* Brest

* Gomel

* Grodno

* Minsk

* Mogilev

And there are different links depending on the "oblast" you lived in. So you might be right but it is not certain. I think the poster should try to determine now.

I cannot say for information from Canadian sources, but the US Department of State will typically indicate a need for separate reports such as for Brazil

Police Records

Certificates of Good Conduct (Atestados de Bons Antecedentes) related to possible violations of state law are available to persons 18 years of age and older from the Secretaria de Seguranca Publica in each of Brazil's states. Atestados related to possible violations of federal law are available to persons 18 years of age and older from any station (Delegacia) of the National Police (Policia Federal). Criminal records in Brazil are expunged five years after any sentence has been served.

Because each state maintains a separate database of violations of state law, a prospective immigrant must obtain a separate record from the Secretaria de Seguranca Publica of each state in which he or she has resided within the past five years. Additionally, a prospective immigrant must obtain a record from the Policia Federal, since state police records do not include violations of federal law.

Thank You very much. I guess we will get the application for police certificate in Minsk and see what all it asks for and go from there. I am just trying to stay ahead of the game. Again thank you alot.

I believe you can get them all from one source, although she hasn't moved around in Belarus, so it's a non-issue for us.

They will check both married and maiden names, and we were told both would be shown on the certificate, although we don't yet have it back.

She can also order the Police Certificate online somehow, but needs to create an account online, then it will give her an ID number, go and make a payment at a bank/payment center (like paying for Internet and some utilities, or OVIR), and save off the receipt number, then place the police certificate order online. That may help depending on where she lives..

That's very good news. I will tell her promptly. Thank You.

Please come back and post if she was able to get ONE police certificate or just make the ONE request for the two different provinces she lived in in Belarus. It will be helpful to other members.

Thanks and Good luck.
