When should my husband apply for his Police certificate?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We just received our NOA2 yesterday (well the email anyway) therefore of course this is hot off the presses. I have gather just about everything I think they will be asking us for and am curious to when should my husband send for his police certificate. I just want to be ahead of the game and have everything ready to mail once we are prompted to pay our fees. It will take two weeks for him to mail me the certificate and I am not sure how long Lagos takes to produce the certificate. Can we request it now so when we get a case number and the fees are paid I can just mail it out without waiting for him to then file it and mail it? Or must we wait for a case number to then request the police certificate?

Yep, my husband requested his when we got NOA2. In the case of Peru, it took a week or so for him to get them and mail them to me.

Yes you can have him request the cert now IF you are sure you have everything else ready i.e. you will be paying AOS bill and IV bill in quick succession. The reason I said that is because Nigerian Police Certificate has only 3 months validity. The good news is if he is 'connected' he can get the cert from Lagos in one day.
