We just got NOA2 on May 14 and waiting for the NVC to receive the package. Around when are they going to ask for Police certificate?

Also, Police Certificate from Nigeria expires after 3 months. The one I got on March 15th is going to expire on June 15. Do you think I can still use it after June 15?

Please respond.

The police certificate will be submitted with other civil documents that accompany the DS-230. The DS-230 and accompanying documentation can be sent to the NVC as soon as the payment portal for the IV bill shows PAID. This bill will not be invoiced until after a case number has been assigned.

Also, Police Certificate from Nigeria expires after 3 months. The one I got on March 15th is going to expire on June 15. Do you think I can still use it after June 15?

An expired police certificate is unlikely to be accepted by the NVC. If the NVC by some chance were to accept it, then the Embassy would most likely require an updated one.

WIth all the headache so many go through with the Nigerian Consulate, I would not chance anything being expired. From what my husband says, getting a new Police Certificate is not a costly or timely expendature. I would have my spouse get a new one to forward to the NVC and prayerfully you will have a quick interview and not need to get an additional one before a visa is issued. Nigerian police certificates expire in 3 months. Remember to send all of your original documents to the NVC and keep two copies of what you forwarded. One for yourself and one to send to your spouse.

Hope that helps!
