Recommended Posts

I am the beneficiary of my USC husband and I would like to know about getting the police certificates , we just had our I-130 approval last May 9 and received the NOA2 receipt in the mail on May 12. I read that NVC needs police certificates (photocopy) and the consulate/embassy (originals) who will do the interview:

 

1.) In Canada -  Can I just go to my local RCMP here in town and ask for a police certificates ? or do I need to provide the one with digitized fingerprint ?

2.) In Hongkong - I already know how to get police clearance in Hongkong but Hongkong will only send the payment receipts to the applicant. they will send it directly to the immigration. Do I need to request two police clearances ? One in my Chosen embassy and One in NVC? Please enlighten me with these. Thank you.

Reading other VJ Canada member's posts, getting a Canadian police certificate can vary from province and area.  My Canadian fiance lives in Vancouver/New Westminster BC, and picked up the police certificate from her local RCMP.  We asked for and were given 2 certified police certificates with the raised RCMP seal on them.  During my fiance's interview in Montreal, they asked for originals and not photocopies of her police certificate.  Keep this in mind.
 

2.) In Hongkong - I already know how to get police clearance in Hongkong but Hongkong will only send the payment receipts to the applicant. they will send it directly to the immigration. Do I need to request two police clearances ? One in my Chosen embassy and One in NVC? Please enlighten me with these. Thank you.
Not sure about this one.

Hi @KimchiLumpia it's your Vancouver friend here again ;) Did you go to RCMP or VPD/New West Police Department to get the police report? Google only suggested VPD/NWPD if you want to obtain a police report not the RCMP...

Hey Hey!

My fiance got her police certificate from the RCMP in Coquitlam: 
2986 Guildford Way, Coquitlam, BC V3B 7Y5

Show them the picture below, and they will know which police certificate to give you:

Make sure to ask for two certified copies.  The Embassy in Montreal requested and kept one, and we kept the other.

@KimchiLumpia This is so helpful! One more question, do you know how many weeks it took for your fiance to get the report?

She has no criminal record, and got the police certificate same day with-in a few minutes.

@KimchiLumpia.Thank you so much for the information about getting the Police certificate here in Canada.

You're welcome.  Just be aware that some jurisdictions and provinces vary.  I would go to your local RCMP and confirm time frames in your area.
