So my fiance lived in the Philippines and also worked in Dubai for 2 years. Does that mean for residence she must put where she stayed in Dubai for those two years?

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The G-325A Biographic Information Form has a section for the applicants residences for the past five years.

So, you must put Dubai if it was within the specified period.

And you would have to get police clearances from Dubai for that period as well.

The DS-260 also asks for all residences since the age of 16.

Hope that is helpful.

I wanted to know where is she currently now? I am working in Singapore for the last 6 years so I have put my residence address as here when my husband filled our I130. I listed Philippines addresses for all the time I have stayed there in DS260 16 years old onward before I went to work abroad.

I've worked in Qatar also for 2 years so that period is also included in my G325A and DS260.

Assuming she is still in UAE working, if you intend to process your visa at UAE then put that address as her residence but I don't recommend such since UAE take 3-6 months to schedule interview. Might as well fly back to Philippines and do it all in US Embassy Manila. All the best!

She lives in Philippines now and works there in the Philippines. How hard is it to get the Police Clearances from Dubai?

Thanks

You wont need Police Clearance for Dubai since UAE dont issue unless she is Physically there still. so put Philippines as her residence address list all other address she lived in the last 5 yrs too for G325A.

But she did work in Dubai for 2.5 years during that 5 year period.

heres the timeline

prior to 4/2012 she lived in philippines

4/2012 moved to Dubai, UAE

6/2012 Worked in Dubai UAE

12/2014 left Dubai UAE for Philippines

1/2015 worked in Philippines

So within 5 years she lived in Dubai and worked there. Does that mean since she isn't in Dubai she doesn't need the Police Clearance?

According to this website: http://uae-embassy.ae/Embassies/ph/Content/2988 there is a process in place to get the Police Clearance. Should we not follow this process?

According to this post: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/357392-interview-done-but-missing-dubai-police-clearance/ there was a delay because of lack of police clearance.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks

According to the US travel state site :

https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/fees/reciprocity-by-country/AE.html

Its unobtainable. The VJ link you sent me was dated 2012 information not sure really if that is still applicable. The UAE link you sent me I am not sure actually if that is still applicable nowadays or whether it is only applicable for UAE National.

When I took my Qatar PCC it took them two months and almost the same process as that but they decline my representative despite having SPA from Singapore Embassy. I took that route first since I thought it would be faster with a representative but told me they no longer do process with any relative or friends. I can obtain through their embassy with 2-3 months wait.

So I did go to Qatar Embassy here in Singapore and pretty much followed their requirements. Since I have an old PCC from Qatar I submitted it at my NVC stage and request to give the updated one during interview and they did give me a case complete with checklist to submit which is the PCC. I hope that helps you.

My wife is from Dubai.

I have been to Dubai.

We actually filed in Manila.

We had the Dubai clearance, and it was asked for at the interview just a few weeks ago.

We have completed the visa process successfully.

May I know if you got the PCC while you are still in Dubai? Or was it from their Embassy in Manila? Got a friend here in SG who isprocessing IR1 visa but at NVC stage. And this would help her avoid 221G in the future. Thanks!

Yeah, you do NOT want to get a 221g, and we would have if we had not had the clearance. They specifically asked for it at the interview.

We filed DCF (Direct at the Embassy). If you are filing NVC, then they would probably checklist you at the NVC review stage, I imagine.

@SDSUPinoy

The petitioner (US citizen) has to be resident in the Philippines for the past 6 months, and be able to prove it, for you to qualify to apply for DCF at the Embassy in Manila.

Where the intending immigrant resides is not the qualification.

Just spoke with the missus.

Basically, you have several options:

1) Order the police clearance certificate online, via the UAE Police-related website. They will courier it to you in about one week.

2) Order one through the UAE Embassy in Manila. It could take six months or so to get it.

3) Have someone in Dubai order one on your behalf, and have them courier it to you.

Hope that is helpful.

@Davesana

Thank you for the info just realized tho that you aren't Filipino. I wonder if the same process applies for a foreign national of UAE in obtaining Clearane from their Embassy.

@SDSU

I suggest you wait until NOA2. Or it might expired durig interview and u have to secure new one.
