Police Check Bangkok

I filed direct with USCIS in Bangkok.

Painless.

USCIS approved in one week, now I (petitioner/husband) am back in the States filling out the DS-260, and my wife's ready to mail in the DS-2001.

QUESTIONS: It is my understanding that my wife needs some sort of letter to take to the Police National Headquarters for the Police Clearance. From the embassy website:

  • Requesting letter from the embassy of the country to which the applicant plans to

    travel. A notice from the US Embassy regarding your case (i.e. a packet 3 cover

    letter) can be used for this purpose.

Uh, well, the photo below is all we got from the embassy. It's a slip of paper. I'm concerned it may not be official enough and consequently "extra" fees will apply. Anyone use this slip of paper before?

Otherwise, where is the letter my wife needs to apply for a police clearance?

And, can the appointment be made other than in person? Can we retain an attorney to submit the application? I hear no, that she must appear in person, then they mail out the report. Flying takes a full day and about 7000 baht between airfare and taxis. Driving takes fifteen hours one way.

Options?

People have used NOA 1 or 2 or almost anything indicating the need.

Myself and at least one other member found a way around the BKK method even though there are those that say it cant be done. I went to the police station in my town where I paid about 3K baht in what farangs call tea money. I had the cert in a week. She is Thai and would know how to approach this.

The other member may advise as well but if I remember right they paid a little more but also succeeded in a different town.
