I'm collecting the docs to the NVC and I have a doubt about the police certificates. I lived as a tourist (not resident) more than 12 months in an another country. I need a police certificate for that country?

Thank you

Yes, you do. As long as you lived there for more than 1 year, then you need a police certificate.

ok thank your very much.

The document is in a 3rd language so I need a notarized English translation. The usa's embassy can notarize the translation?

Thank you

The translation does not need to be notarised. But the translator must provide a signed statement that the translation is accurate and that he or she is competent to translate this language.
