Hi! everyone

Me and my wife are worried about her Police Certificate from Canada. NVC notified us via Email on May 20, 2015 for her interview at US Consulate in Montreal.

and there is no possible way we can get the Police Certificate in just 13 days.

are they going to deny the application if we don't have the police certificate? NVC told us that if we sent them the original copy then it will be at the consulate with

all the documents that they are going to send before the interview.

what should we say to them about this problem? need some input please, Im very worried.

thanks in advance!


You must bring the following items to the visa interview:

  • Any original documents the NVC requested that you did not submit (refer to the document list below)

  • If the physician gives you your medical exam results, bring them to your interview in the envelope sealed

    by the medical office.

  • Two passport photographs measuring 2 inches by 2 inches (5 cm by 5 cm) with a white background

  • A valid unexpired passport

  • Photocopies of all civil documents

  • A new police certificate from your current country of residence, if you obtained the police certificate

    more than one year ago.

  • Any additional documents listed in the U.S. Embassy or Consulate specific interview guidelines

    The following table lists the documents requested by the NVC and whether or not you submitted them to the NVC. Please note that even though you may have provided the NVC with a copy of a document, you are still required to bring the original document to the visa interview.

    Refer to the Document Status Code Definitions on Page 3 to determine the meaning of the document status codes.

Document Name

  1. J The NVC only received a photocopy of the document. You must present the original document at

    the time of your interview.

**Moderator hat off**

You will not be flat out denied if you do not have this document on the interview date. What will happen instead is they will delay issuing the visa (if approved) until they receive and review the document.
