Juarez Consulate

We in the Juarez consulate group have been discussing whether our Fiancees NEED a police certificate at the interview in Juarez.

Here is what it says on the Dept. of State website; (I underlined & put in BOLD the police info)

Still I am am unsure since the actual instructions from Juarez state this;

5.Persons convicted of a crime must obtain a certified copy of each court recordand any prison record, regardless of the fact that theymay have benefited subsequently from an amnesty, pardon, or other act of clemency.

This sounds like you only need police certificates if you were convicted of something in the past...however below sounds like you need them to prove no police interaction.

(Dept of state website)

Required Documentation

You, the foreign-citizen fiancé(e), (and eligible children applying for K-2 visas) will be required to bring the following forms and documents to the visa interview:

Two (2) Nonimmigrant Visa Applications, Form DS-156 (prepared in duplicate). NOTE: K-1/K-2 visa applicants should not fill in Form DS-160, Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application

One (1) Nonimmigrant Fiancé(e) Visa Application, Form DS-156K

A passport valid for travel to the United States and with a validity date at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the U.S. (unless country-specific agreements provide exemptions)

Birth certificate

Divorce or death certificate(s) of any previous spouse(s) for both you and the U.S. citizen sponsor

Police certificates from your present country of residence and all countries where you have lived for 6 months or more since age 16 (Police certificates are also required for accompanying children age 16 or older)

Medical examination (vaccinations are optional, see below)

Evidence of financial support (Form I-134, Affidavit of Support, may be requested)

Two (2) 2x2 photographs. See the required photo format explained in Photograph Requirements

Evidence of relationship with your U.S. citizen fiancé(e)

Payment of fees, as explained below.

SOOOOOOOOOOOO, people...anyone out there ever go through Juarez on fiancee visa with NO police certificates??????

As I said in the other thread, count us as 1. My husband (fiance at the time), did not need a police certificate to get approved for his visa through CDJ.

Hi, we are waiting for an interview on May 31st for a CR-1 Visa in Juarez. The packet 3 for CR-1 clearly states" "Do not attempt to obtain a police certificate in the following countries: including Mexico" see link.

Hope this helps.


Thanks chuk686 but we are looking for info on Fiancee visa...looks like the CR-1 is a different type? This is why I am confused...(not the only reason tho' jejeje!

Isn't it silly that they can't word it on the papers so it it simple...

for example;

No need for police certificates unless you are a BIG criminal...


As I said in the other thread, count us as 1. My husband (fiance at the time), did not need a police certificate to get approved for his visa through CDJ.

Okay now this is good news JayKay! I am not going to have her get any police report then since she has never been in jail...

okey dokey!
