If you live LESS than 12 months abroad you are not required to present the police records related to that locality, is this correct? I ask because I lived 9 months in Finland while I am Italian!

thanks!

i guess you still need it,it states that you need police certificate from other country where you lived for more than 6 months.

this is where i read the info that its not needed for <12 months http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3195.html#police

There has been inconsistency in application... it is good the the DOS finally put out something definitive


YMMV

ok, I have just found this in the instructions my consulate sent me :)

POLICE CERTIFICATES: Original police certificates are required for each visa applicant aged 16 years or older. The table below shows how many police certificates are required based on where each applicant lives and has lived previously. Present and former residents of the United States should NOT obtain any police certificates covering their residence in the U.S.

IF the applicant…

AND…

THEN the applicant needs a police certificate from…

has lived in his/her country of nationality or at his/her current residence for more than 6 months

was 16 years or older at that time

the police authorities of that locality.

lived in a different country for more than 12 months

was 16 years or older at that time

the police authorities of that locality.

was arrested for any reason, regardless of how long they lived there

was any age at that time

the police authorities of that locality.

The police certificate must cover the entire period of the applicant’s residence in that area and state what the appropriate police authorities records show concerning each applicant, including all arrests, the reason for the arrest(s), and the disposition of each case of which there is a record. Police certificates from certain countries are considered unobtainable.
