Help - How to obtain USA Police Clearance Certificate for beneficiary

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

We just got our NOA2 for 1-130 petition and waiting to hear from NVC.  I was wondering if anyone would help us with any information on how to go about getting a Police Clearance Certificate for my husband who once lived in the USA for 7 months.

 

Thank you so much for your time and help.
