Police clearance for K1-list of countries it is needed from?

Recommended Posts


I know that they do not require the police clearance from certain countries- I guess because of no trusted sources. Does anybody have a link to the list of the countries? I can't find it.

Thank you!

Thank you!

You need a police certificate from anywhere you have lived for 6 months or more excluding the states as they do their own background check.
