Checklist for Indian police clearance

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am petitioning for my wife's immigrant visa. She is an Indian citizen, residing outside of India (in Qatar). Yesterday I got a checklist from the NVC. It says...

10 - PASSPORT POLICE CERTIFICATE:____________________________
Indian Police Clearance Certificates should be obtained as follows:
• All Indian IV applicants aged 16 and above, residing in India, should obtain police
certificates from the local Passport Office.
• Indian passport holders applying for visas outside India should obtain a statement from their
local embassy or consulate confirming they have no criminal record.
• Non-Indian IV applicants residing in India should obtain police certificates from the District
Police Station serving their area of residence.
• Indian police certificates are not available for foreign (non-Indian) applicants applying
outside India.

The thing is, I DID submit a "Police Clearance Certificate" issued by the Embassy of India in Qatar. It states that there is no criminal record against my wife.

So I don't understand what NVC wants???? Can anybody shed some light on this?

I plan to call NVC obviously... But will this be helpful... I mean, will the person who picks up the phone be able to look at our file or will he/she just repeat what's on the checklist? I heard that supervisors are too busy these days...

I called them. I told them I already submitted the required document. They said they'll review the case and it will take up to 42 days. Couldn't speak to a supervisor.

Did I do the right thing by asking for a review? Or should I have just sent in the document again?

Now that it's under review, can I still send in the document, or would that cause further delay??
