Please help!! Police certificate! ?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I am getting all the documents ready for the DS 230, and right now I don't know what to do when it comes to the police certificate. Is the Police certificate the same as police and prison records? Because I don't know if I should send it and I don't want to waste anymore time. My husband lives in Lebanon and this is what it says when I click on the reciprocity of country:

Police and Prison Records

Available. The "Judiciary Police Record" is issued by the Judiciary Police Department, Internal Security Forces, Minister of the Interior. It does not contain any information about any political activities or affiliation to any terrorist, military, or illegal organization. It only shows any final court decision, final conviction and/or court sentence.

After completing his/her sentence, an individual could request that the Ministry of Justice remove the sentence from his "Judiciary Police Record" after three to ten years, depending on the type of crime. In 1992, the Lebanese Government issued a "General Amnesty" for all crimes committed before 1991. Also, in 1996 the Lebanese Government issued a "General Amnesty" to all drug charges-related crimes committed before 1994.

The criminal records are indexed and in alphabetical order. They include, in addition to the individual's name, the number and place of each individual's place of civil registration. The "Judiciary Police Record" is issued in Arabic and signed by the Chief of the Judiciary Department.

To obtain the "Judiciary Police Record", the individual who is physically present in Lebanon, must personally apply, accompanied by his/her Lebanese identity card to the Police Record Department, Internal Security Forces, Ministry of Interior. The document will be issued within 48 hours.

For those residing outside Lebanon, the request must be processed through Lebanese embassies/consulates, but applicants may experience extremely long waiting periods before they receive the document, or may not receive them at all. The "Judiciary Police Record" may also be requested through a lawyer having a power of attorney from the individual authorizing the request. The "Judiciary Police Record" presented by an individual does not mean that the individual is clear. It just states that "this person does not have any court sentence against him".

Thank you for your time! I appreciate it!

Really? I've been waiting since October 17th and I call the manila lebanon embassy and they tell me "they'll notify me when it comes".

I'm worried it's not coming. Did you apply through the embassy here in manila?

What's the proof we can use? She didn't give her anything in October. It's coming up on 4 months waiting now and judging by how quick everyone's pc's are coming I'm thinking maybe not.

When she applied she didn't have anything except her passport, a bio sheet the lady gave her and letter she pretty much copied from the lady.

The requirements were all things she didn't know to get before she left. She said the lady was nice but didn't give her anything as a receipt.
