You posted in the permanent resident thread. Are you the petitioner a US citizen or a permanent resident ? It makes a big difference in how long you will wait. One waits months and the other waits until a visa number is available which is normally about 5 years


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Please don't "try" when you don't know. Others who do know will be along shortly. Your answers are wrong for a CR1 except for the medical. The correct answers actually were already given.

With regard to the police report expiring, as long as it was obtained less than a year ago, it doesn't matter at all what expiration date might appear on it.

No offense but your ALL CAPS in BIGGER SIZE are kinda blinding.

Anyway, the Police Record wasn't needed for the NVC stage (for Nicaraguans). However, it will definitely be requested at the time of the interview. My advice - even if the record sent to the NVC has not expired - is to have your wife get a new police record and bring it to the interview. They are only valid for a 60-day period.

Police reports are definitely required at the NVC stage for Nicaragua but they "expiration date" on them is of no consequence if the "issue date" is within a year.

Not necessarily true--in Costa Rica the police reports are valid for 90 days, and in a pre meeting at the embassy, they advised us that they will not accept an expired report at the interview, but it's no big deal since it only takes ten minutes to get a new one if by some chance our interview is delayed beyond what is anticipated. Well, ten minutes once we get to the government office which issues them which is half an hour from the embassy--still no big deal.

I'm from Nicaragua and the Police Report was notrequired at the NVC stage. If it wasn't like that, then I would've received an RFE for it and I certainly didn't.

In Love points out a very important thing--not all countries produce police reports. In our case, my wife was born in Mexico and lived much of her life there before moving to Costa Rica, and Mexico also does NOT produce police reports--if you have any questions about your personal situation, be sure to go to the link that In Love provided--it has everything you need to know.

In countries where police reports are unavailable, they are not needed at the NVC stage or at the Consulate. Why did you say it would be requested at the interview? If they are unavailable, they're unavailable.

I thought the same thing but to be on the safe side I e-mailed the embassy before going to my interview and they told me to bring a valid police record. So I did. It was one of the first things they asked for.
