Police Clearance for ds-230 and those with mumbai consulate

34 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This isn't really a question but rather I wanted to clear up the issue of whether someone sending DS-230 need PCC to be in the packet. According to 2 phone calls I made they told me that PCC is consulate specific and that for mumbai consulate you're not required. :yes: Hope this info is helpful!! :D

Yes it is important to send in your police clearance certificate along with the ds230 packet. If not, you'll just be delaying your process at NVC.

I'm not sure where you got this information from.

Sometimes they can complete your case without PCC, and would require you to submit at the time of interview.

Thank you for replying!! I was starting to flip out! I wonder if I should send a letter stating it is taking time to get the appointment. What do you think?

You can let them know that the PCC will be submitted at VFS along with the medicals and other documents prior to the interview.

Can someone please share their experience to get PCC from India(Ahmedabad-Vadodara area). I've hard time to schedule appt. or understand their procedure to get PCC. Their website always says appointments will be available after 7:30 PM but when you check it always says next day 7:30 PM. So strage.

Can you shed some light on what do I need to send thru VFS. I'm not aware of this process? I thought all documents are submitted to NVC. Medical and PCC needs to take it with beneficiary at time of interview. Your help is appreciated.

At least four working prior to your interview, you're supposed to submit your medical report as well as photocopies of all the documents you sent to NVC along with another set of original ds230, current dated, to VFS. Also pl make note of the fact that your x-ray is not required at the interview. It's to be hand carried with you to the US, where at your port of entry you'll hand it over to the immigration officer.

Oh are you saying that In IV (Immigration Visa) package that we need to submit to NVC it's not mandatory to submit Police Clearance Certificate? Please confirm, as I am about to get my file reached to NVC in few weeks.

Based on your reply, I assume that NVC will waive to submit PCC if your file is going to be forwarded to Mumbai Consulate. But you need to get PCC original document when you go for an interview at Mumbai Consulate, is that correct?

My spouse lives in Ahmedabad. PSK in Ahmedabad said that they need an interview letter or a letter from immigration office to indicate they have officially requested PCC for immigration process.

This thread was just posted this morning saying NVC will waive PCC requirement if your file will be sent to Mumbai consulate.

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/368087-passport-office-police-clearance-for-mumbai-consulate-confirmed/

I will ask NVC once my file has reached into their system. If you have already got your NVC case number, then I would definitely suggest to call them and verify this information and see all operators are giving the same information. Also share your findings on these thread so others will benefit from your query :)
