Need Indian PCC from SP office for CR 1 visa ???

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

my spouse filed me for CR1 Visa. Now we r in NVC. My question is whether i need to provide Police Clearance Certificate from SP offices where i lived more than 6 months.. I asked this doubt to chennai embassy.. they told me now rules are changed.. indian citizens residing in india need to obtain PCC only from passport office where your passport issued.. department of state website also saying the same thing.. http://travel.state.gov/visa/fees/fees_4881.html?cid=3582, select county "India"

**************************************************************************

Police Records

Indian Police Clearance Certificates should be obtained as follows:

All Indian IV applicants aged 16 and above, residing in India, should obtain police certificates from the local Passport Office.

Indian passport holders applying for visas outside India should obtain a statement from their local embassy or consulate confirming they have no criminal record.

Non-Indian IV applicants residing in India should obtain police certificates from the District Police Station serving their area of residence.

Indian police certificates are not available for foreign (non-Indian) applicants applying outside India.

**************************************************************************

What's ur opinion? expecting replies from any indian citizens who had interview recently...

In country reciprocity, it says you need to get PCC from local passport office.

However chennai consulate website still shows that you need to get local PCC from appropriate police authorities. Here is the link

Lets see how others give their opinion.

Actually I asked this question to chennai embassy because I am working in a different part of the country.. and they replied like this..

Dear Sir,

This is in response to your inquiry. Indian PCC – you have to obtain only from the passport office where your passport was issued.

Thanks jiju, It is really good that you have shared the reply from Chennai Consulate with this forum. As my case also belongs to Chennai Consulate, me and all other whose case will be processed in Chennai consulate will be definitely be helpful for them.

BTW, If you have got an email confirmation then it is good. Now I think it is clear that local PCC from appropriate authorities is not required, it is a good news. Good luck for your NVC processing. :thumbs:
