Saudi Police Clearance

Greetings!

I am here again to ask our friendly VJers regarding Saudi Police Clearance.

I am a Registered Nurse and worked in Jeddah, KSA as NICU nurse. I left Saudi in Dec. 2010 and stayed 3 months in Dubai where my Fiance and I finalized the engagement. (We met in Orlando in 2000 and been inlove since: 10 years, 7 months, 7 days (sad but true)). Nwys, before i left saudi, i managed to get a Saudi Police Clearance which is dated Oct. 2010. Recently, we received our NOA1 and basing from the timelines here, we should expect decision from adjudicators sometime between Sept and Nov. Now, noting that the Police Clearance i have is dated Oct 2010, will it still be valid when i submit it to US embassy during my interview? At the moment i am back at home in Manila and have no plan of going back to Saudi. Will the US Embassy still require me to get another clearance with a more recent issue date? If so, does anybody here knows how to get a Saudi Police Clearance from outside the kingdom?

Please, if there's anyone here who knows the answer/s, please enlighten me. Thank you so much in advance!

Hello,

I posted the same question here on VJ before coz I worked in Saudi as a Nurse too and I went back home in PI on Oct. 2010, but I don't have a police clearance from Saudi, unlike you at least you manage to obtain one. Though here's the info. I got (thanks to Vj'ers) :thumbs:

Saudi Arabia Reciprocity Schedule

Documents

Birth Certificates

Available at time of birth. For persons born prior to 1968 in the western (Jeddah) and eastern (Dhahran) provinces and 1980 in the central (Riyadh) province birth certificates are not available. In lieu of birth certificates the nationality card (Tabiya) should be used.

Marriage and Divorce Certificates

Marriages and divorces are conducted in accordance with Sharia (Islamic) law. Sharia courts issue marriage and divorce certificates. Authenticated copies of the certificate are available, provided the requester presents to the court a copy of the original document. If a copy of the original document cannot be presented, the court can only state it has confirmed details of the marriage or divorce based on its records.

Police Records

Police clearances are available for Saudi citizens and resident third country nationals. Saudi citizens currently residing overseas must return in person to process the police clearance.

Saudi citizens and third country nationals residing in the Kingdom process the police clearances by first obtaining a police clearance request letter from U.S. Embassy Riyadh, U.S. Consulate General Jeddah, or U.S. Consulate General Dhahran. This police clearance request letter, signed by a consular officer, must be attested by the Saudi Ministry of Affairs (current fee is SR30). The applicant must then appear personally with a passport-sized photograph and a national ID or residency permit at the regional Criminal Investigation Department for fingerprinting. Fingerprinting for women is done in a separate room. The police clearance should be available for collection after a week or two.

Police clearances are available for Saudi nationals residing outside of the Kingdom. The expatriate Saudi citizen obtains the police clearance by returning to the Kingdom and obtaining a police clearance request letter from U.S. Embassy Riyadh, U.S. Consulate General Jeddah, or U.S. Consulate General Dhahran. This police clearance request letter, signed by a consular officer, must be attested by the Saudi Ministry of Affairs (current fee is SR30). The applicant must then appear personally with the attested police clearance request letter, a passport-sized photograph and a national ID at the Regional Criminal Investigation Department for fingerprinting. Fingerprinting for women is done in a separate room. The police clearance should be available for collection after a week or two.

Police clearances are unavailable for third country nationals who no longer reside in the Kingdom.

Yep, I was worried like you before but, it'll be okay, you work there, you lived for months or years in there so you must know how hard it is to be able to obtain any document from their side, much more when you're out of their country. :). You're very much welcome.
