Police Clearance?

The USC does not need the police reports, only the intending immigrant.

The Manila embassy WILL ask for it. I stayed 2 years in China and they asked for it. Find out first how long the validity of a Japan police clearance is, and if its long enough then go ahead and get one. China police clearances have no validity period and Manila ones have 1 year.


My Journey:

We met through a study-abroad program in Shanghai, China in August of 2009

We got engaged March of 2010

I received my K1 VISA in 6 months (June-December 2010)

We were married 04/02/2011
I received my conditional 2-year greencard (AOS) in 2.5 months with no interview (April-June 2011)

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

I became a US citizen on 08/01/2014

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)

Thank you, VJ! smile.png

Year back, some applicants who needed to obtain a Police Clearance from Japan Embassy had to get a request letter from the US Embassy.

JP Embassy won't issue one without it. But that was a year ago. You may want to call USEm first and inquire whether or not you need one.

Good Luck!

I would think that the U.S. Embassy in Japan would have experience with Japanese citizens needed letters to get police certificates. Just go there and explain your situation - I expect they'll know what you need. Make sure you bring your NOA to prove that you filed for I-129

Visa Approved!

23/07/10 - Arrived in the U.S.

28/08/10 - Got Married
