Korean Police Certificate

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi to my VJ family!

I just want to know if anyone of you know how to obtain the Korean Police Certificate and/or how it is done. Should I get it myself or the USCIS will request it for me? I can't remember any part of the 129F application asking if I worked/stayed in another country prior to application. Any info will be a great help!

Thank you everyone! God bless....

USCIS does not want a police report, but the embassy will want one for the visa application if you lived in Korea for 6 months or more.

As for requesting the report I believe you need to go to the Korean consulate in Manila to start the process. Hopefully others who have done this will chime in.

I see from your timeline you have not received your NOA2 yet.

Hi, I have included an official US government (travel.state.gov)link that will directly let you know if you are able to get a police clearance from countries. In some countries Police clearances are only available if they are physically in the country. I believe South Korea is one of them. Just click on the country and scroll down to where it says "Police Clearance", it will tell you if you are able to receive it if you are not physically in the country. If it does say that you can't get it. YOU MUST PRINT THIS PAGE OUT TO SHOW THEM AT THE EMBASSY, because for some reason some people at the Embassy don't know or DON'T CARE and will say that you need to get your police clearance when it clearly states that it is UNAVAILABLE IF YOU ARE NOT IN THE COUNTRY.

I hope this helps. My fiance wasn't able to get a police clearance and she printed out the COMPLETE PAGE where it states this.

Good luck. :thumbs:

Thank you! I've been seeing this site countless time but I still see people who were saying that they provided a clearance from South Korea so I can't have peace of mind. I might do what your fiance did. But I wanna know if the CO actually accepted the printed document. Thanks a lot!

Thank you! And yes, our case has been sitting at the USCIS office for over 6 months now. I just hope that they will approve ours very soon.

I will do what I need to do to make sure that I will get my visa..hehe!

I've read on here on several occasions where the CO tried to tell them that they needed a police clearance and once they were presented with the information from the state.gov website, they said it was a non-issue. My fiance and I have printed it out and are going to present it at her interview. Make sure that you completely print out the entire page, not just a portion of it.

Talk to you later.

Yep! He actually called earlier and he said they cannot do anything (putting a service request) unless our case is beyond the processing date which is now on June 4.

All we can do is pray and pray.....it will come in God's timing.

Thank you guys!

Funny. When we were at the petition stage of our journey CSC was being slower that VSC.. now they have traded places it seems.

Very soon .... that amazing day will arrive! :thumbs:

If you'll have the interview at USEM then you won't need it as it's unavailable if currently a non-resident of the country. If you want a peace of mind as not all CO are aware of it and you're still waiting for your approval then go ahead and acquire the clearance from the Korean Embassy while you still have the time.

Good luck on your journey!!
