Missing police certificate/Chances of approval at interview?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I've been on VJ for several months now and even though I don't post often, this community has really helped me thought the K1 process. Now I could really use some input on what could be a potential game stopper for us.

My fiancée works in international development and between education and work she has lived in several countries. We have secured all the police reports but one, Kenya.

We have had everything else we need for the interview ready for over a month now. A few weeks ago we began worrying about our petition expiring (June 18) before we get the report from Kenya. So she called the embassy and explained and was told to schedule her interview prior to the expiration date even if she didn't have that one document. Her interview is scheduled for June 8th at the embassy in Tokyo and we still have nothing from Kenya.

What we do have are clean police reports from 5 other countries. Japan is not a high risk immigration fraud country. What are the chances of her being approved without that last report? Are there other possible outcomes besides flat out denial of visa? Is there a way to extend the I-129F approval? Any input or advice would be appreciated.
