HK PCC not there in time for the interview

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, if it's not one thing, it's another.

Had a very hard time getting the application for the HK PCC filed after we got our NVC letter (long story, but thank god wife had a cousin who just went there to work or we may still be trying).

Looks very unlikely it will be at the embassy in time for the interview (filed on June 22, interview is July 7th...only 2 weeks time...HK says it takes 4 weeks).

So, just to make sure, I suppose wife is going to get a 221g at the interview? Or does something else happen? Just want to get our expectations right. I'm pretty bummed about it.

Unfortunately they will not approve visa without the police clearance. Did they say where they were mailing the certificate, NVC or the Embassy. They want to use the address on the document you provide.

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Philippines
Timeline

... the police clearance (in this instance, HK), is a major requirement......

and yes, HK delivers the clearance directly to the US embassy (cleared ones) between 3-4 weeks.....

my advice is, for her to just have her interview on the designated date.....

who knows if the police clearance will be received by the embassy just in time....

if not, after the interview, follow it up from HK police and or US embassy....

both are accommodating......

good luck......

Thank you both for the replies...yeah, I knew they wouldn't approve it without the clearance, but wasn't sure if they say something like 'you passed the interview, but you won't get the visa until we get the clearance'...so at least we know that the interview was passed.

Not worried about her getting cleared by HK...she's golden...just hate the thought of waiting around again for some unknown period of time waiting on the visa to show up.

I do believe the CO will tell her she's approved if the PCC is the only thing lacking.

Make sure she has a new NBI from Philippines if it's been a while since she obtained one. They will ask for a new one for sure.

Embassy often asks for recent certificates including NBI. So, it'd be better for your wife to obtain a new one.

Good Luck!

Indeed, I guess we should...her clearance is over 6 months old...really 7 on the the day of the interview. Thanks to all for the advice.
