All

I am wondering if Colombian Embassy requires police certificates and if they must get them from each town the beneficiary has lived in..

My appologies if this has already been answered, but not sure where to look.. If anyone has experience with this, maybe you can provide your comments..

I am asking my fiancee to begin gathering her documents...

Thanks

Kenny

Yes, they are required. I think, but am not 100% sure, that it's needed for every place she's lived for more than 1 yr (6mo?) after the age of 16.

You should have a look here:

Your fiance needs to go to DAS to get her Certificado Judicial and Certificado Migratorio. This addresses everywhere she has lived in Colombia. But, she still needs to list where she has lived in Colombia as required by the G325 forms and all the other forms. If she has lived outside of Colombia, she will need to list those addresses and obtain a police certificate from where she has lived outside of Colombia. You need to have her read the information from the Bogota embassy: http://bogota.usembassy.gov/immigrant_visas.html or http://spanish.bogota.usembassy.gov/visaderes.html.

And, above all, read the procedures in VISAJOURNEY.COM, they are excellent.

Good Luck

"Informal English translations are required for civil documents written in a foreign language."

Any ideas on how to properly provide "informal translations" of civil documents would be helpful..

What documents do they require to be translated?

Judicial Certificates / POLICE CERTIFICATES:?

BAPTISMAL CERTIFICATE?

BIRTH CERTIFICATES?

DAS CERTIFICATE?

The embassy in Bogota does not require the birth, baptismal, police certificates, etc., translated into english. However, the birth and/or baptismal certificates will need to be translated to english for the AOS in the USA.

As long as the documents are in either English or Spanish, you don't need translations for the embassy. You will only need a translation for the beneficiary's birth certificate when you file for AOS. It doesn't have to be done by a certified translator, it can be done by anyone who speaks both language fluently. Also, the translation doesn't have to be notarized nor apostilled.
