hello there. i believe she will need a police clearance from singapore police since she lived there for one year. i believe the requirement for police clearance from other countries is that one have lived, whether working or not, for more than 6 months. since she lived there for about a year then she is required to procure a SINGAPORE CERTIFICATE OF CLEARANCE (COC).

She needed to have a Singapore police clearance once she lived overseas more than a year she is required to secure police clearance then,try to go check the Singaporean emabassy in Manila,they sure can help you provide the police clearance.And I'm pretty sure you will be informed by them of how much it cost.remember that requesting police clearance abroad takes 2-8 weeks depending on how you pay for the shipping method

once you have the letter from NVC stating the case has been forwarded the US Embassy in Manila showing the beneficiarie's CASE NUMBER and BENEFICIARIE'S NAME then you can request for Singapore COC either by mail or in person but I suggest do it in person coz she needs to have her fingerprint taken and will be processed in 2 weeks. if she opted for mail-in request, it will most likely take a while. not to mention the mailing time from the Philppines to Singapore, processing time for them to issue the COC, mailing time from Singapore to Manila then the time for the US embassy to sort the mail they receive. the best option is to go in person to have the fingerprint taken in Singapore. come back when it's time to pick up the COC and have the COC on hand during the interview.

Your wife will need a police certificate from any country she has lived in for more than 12 months from age 16 onwards. Check here to find out how to obtain the police clearance if it's available. http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/fees/reciprocity-by-country.html

According to state website, they require Police Clearance from age of 16.

My wife was in vietnam from 16-27, and moved to Sweden since 27 now

I spoke to NVC rep today, and told to send in only Swedish Police Clearance. They do not need the Police Clearance from Vietnam since I asked them abt instruction requirement from the website. The Rep told me Swedish Police Clearance will cover all, and thats what they see on my requirement checklist. Its awkward.

But I still sent them both Records in today since I already obtain both. Lets see what happens next.
