Police Records for Spain

Hi,

First post on here. I'm following these instructions here http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide and on point 14 they mention police certificates required from each country. My fiancé is in Spain so I take it I'll need those. I'm just not clear on whether those need to be included in my original package I'm sending or if we can hold off on those?

The implication from the State Department here https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/immigrate/immigrant-process/documents/Supporting_documents.html is that it should be part of the original package, but it's not called out as such in the Visa Guide and it's not part of the Cover Letter template either.

I'm a little confused now at what point I need to include those documents and whether I need to send the originals with my 129F or just photocopies? Since my fiancé would presumably need the originals for his interview in Madrid.

Thoughts anyone?

He'll bring his police certificates to the interview.

And the i-129f only requires photos copies, so if you still want to add those you can just have him scan and email them to you. Just like with the forms and letter of intent he needs to provide in the package.

Ok cool, that's what I was thinking. Good catch on photocopies, I glazed over that having read the instructions so many times. Basically we can just send this stuff in and he can get started on police records in the meantime.

He's a dual citizen with Peru as well so we need to get those from Lima sadly. Not sure how long that process is or if we can file for a waiver for that given he's been in Spain for 12 years and is a citizen there. Something tells me the answer is going to be "no" to that. I read those may be available from a Peruvian Consulate in Spain, so gonna give that a try first I suppose.

I don't know exactly how old the police certificates can be, either it's 6 months or 12 months. It might also be country specific so you should ask in the regional forum. So basically, it might be bad to ask for the certificates too early. It's usually recommended to request those documents asap after you receive NOA2.

Spain seems to process things faster and god knows how long things will take with Peru's bureaucracy and getting a power of attorney for someone etc.

Is there a way to get out of this requirement? Seems ridiculous he's only lived there until age 20 and from everything I'm reading, doing this in Peru is going to be a pain and he can't fly there to get this done himself at the moment.
