Police clearance problem...

All,

My finace had her interview last Friday, and passed, BUT...

They seen in her old passport that about 10 years ago she

worked for about a year in Lebanon.

So, they told her she needed to get a police clearance for

Lebanon and send it in with her passport and the will issue

the visa.

Well, sounds simple, but is not simple with Lebanon...

I called the Lebanon embassy in Manila and they said that

she needs to send in a list of things, including work permit

and full name/address of her employer there. Well problem is

that she does not have any of this any more.

Every place I have looked says that at lest the work permit

is required.

So, I guess now we are stuck and screwed...

She can't get visa without Lebanon police clearance, but she

can't get the police clearance because she no longer has the

required documents.

So now what can we do??

Also, the Lebanon embassy said it will take up to 6 months.

And even on the state department page says, "applicants may

experience extremely long waiting periods before they receive

the document, or may not receive them at all."

So maybe even if they take the only things she has, a copy of

the passport stamps, after 6 months we may not even get anything...

Don't ask how this got over looked before. I Guess I overlooked it

when I was doing the G325A as it was more then 5 years ago, then

I most have completely forgotten about it. She had gotten clearances

for the other two countries she was in since then.

Also let me say that I have read the information from the

state department, so no need to reply with that.

Thanks for any help,

Jim

Hey Jim,

My fiance went to lebanon for 2 years, when she left her employer didn't give her anything.

We called the lebanon embassy and the same thing happened. They gave us a list that we could not provide. The lady told us to go to the embassy though. So we did. I'm actually staying in the philippines until she can come back with me. I came here in august 2012 and she had been delaying applying for it until October when I called and found out the 3-6 month thing. So now it's January 3rd month waiting after she wrote a letter with me standing there in the lebanon embassy.

They showed us a letter from someone else and she let us basically copy it except I changed a few words saying we didn't have the other items also. It was in english. Apparently for 2,000 pesos they'll mail the letter (that's all they took from us) and they'll call you when it comes back...supposedly.

Also they don't give you a receipt or anything. I've called a few times and she won't really give me any information either, like if she's received any other applications BACk. So it's month 3 and I've got 3 more to go probably. Sitting here across from the us embassy in an apartment.

Did you ever get that clearance? Did you ever apply? I'm trying to figure out if I should be doing something or just sitting on my #### waiting. No receipt, no proof I've been waiting, I'm going to call the US embassy tomorrow and lie and tell them I've been waiting 8 months and see what they tell me to do or if they'll tell me what proof I've been waiting that long so I can get the waiver form during the interview.

Anyway, I've never gotten a reply on this thing but I assume I'll get an email. If not I'll add this to my book marks and check it periodically for a while. GL, and tell me what's up if you know. Or if anyone else knows or can say if they actually do EVER call back and give you the clearance....
