Can missing police report be the cause of AP?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've done interview for CR1 in naples,italy.

And the visa officer asked a lot of questions and said that i'm missing the police report from china,i need to get that to them,i said that is not easy to get,but she says we need it anyway,and then she said that i need to mail the notarial certificate of no criminal records to them,and asked do you have any travel plans?If it's hard to get the the police report,you can have your passport back,and when you got the notarial certificate of no criminal records,you just mail that with your passport to us so you don't have to come back here again.

 

And i checked the visa status now,it shows Administrative Processing.

 

Does it mean that if i send them the police reports and notarial certificate they'll just approve it right away?

 

Or that i just need to wait for two months anyway…

 

Please share your experiences with me,i'm really confused and really frustrated.Thank you…

Every case goes through AP.

No idea where 2 months comes from. AP has no timeline at all...most are days, some are weeks, rarely it's months, and  very rarely it's years.

A missing police certificate would be a reason for AP. Once received, they will review it. Could be days, could be weeks before they get to it.

If there is nothing else outstanding, they can then issue the visa. They will need your passport to do so.

Even though AP is normal in visa processing, your case is in AP due to that police certificate. You need to get them that police report or else your case will remain in AP with no action on it. Did they give a form after the interview? 221g or anything? I don’t know if it’s the same for all embassy’s but there’s timelines for how long you have to submit a required document requested from the CO. If you lived in any other country for 6months or more they will always require a police report from that country no matter how hard it is to obtain its part or the process.

Cause i saw people saying that they waited for two months for AP before.

Hopefully it will just be days,or like two weeks or so.😂

Thank you.

No any forms,no any email,she just said mail the stuffs to them with my passport and that's it.

Yes,it's a very complicated and frustrating process,thank you.
