Police Certificate

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Every source of information I've read indicates that Police Certificates are required for every K-1 Visa. I have also read that Police Certificates cannot be obtained in Mexico among other countries. So, what happens in this instance. Does anyone have an experience in regard to this matter?

Each consulate has different requirements for the interview. Mexico does not require police certificates because they are one of the countries where they are "unavailable".

If you review the Fiance Packet on the Ciudad Juarez website you will see that they are not one of the required documents for the interview.

Good luck!

Thank you. I did read that Police Certificates could not be obtained from Mexico. I was just wondering what is done in lieu of the Police Certificate. Does the Embassy complete their own investigation or what?

Yes - more or less. Every consulate, I believe, does background checks on the applicant and takes fingerprints.

Thank you! I have lost all faith in the paralegal I paid to prepare everything and answer all my questions. Thus far, I believe her "experience" is strictly based on her own experience 15 years ago! I just wanted to make sure I have everything I need when we arrive in Juarez.
