Passport expiration question

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

May 2018 filer here. We're likely going to be getting our NOA2 in December and hopefully our interview in January or early February. The beneficiary passport information that we have entered in the 1F29 shows that it expires in July 2019. She will be sending her application to renew her passport within a few days and will get a new passport within 21 days. So my question is that does it matter that application has different passport information and at the time of the interview she will have a new passport? 

 

Also she lives in Toronto and has been here for 2 years. Does she need to get the police report from Toronto? How long does the process take to obtain that?

 

Thank you all.

she can provide the new passport at her interview and they will update it.

 

the police check rules are VERY literal. if she has lived there LONGER THAN 12 MONTHS she has to get one.

 

it can take several months and make sure you get the new one. She will also need ones from any countries she lived in previously.

Thank you for the info. She actually lived in the US before moving to Canada 2 years ago. She had to get a police report before moving to Canada. Can we use that police report for the US and obtain one for Canada. I had no idea it could take several months for police report.

the US one will be fine if she hasnt lived here since, and the US can do their own checks anyways.

 

it doesnt usually take several months, especially if there is no record, but it CAN.

 

Go get it ordered now.

No. You have to get an updated police certificate. Get it ordered as soon as you can. By the way, the beneficiary is fine. I had different passports between filing for I-129F and NOA2 too.

I'm from Singapore. When I received my NOA2 instructions, it said my police certificates cannot be more than 6 months old.

i think thats for your current country but i may be wrong

 

and US and CA sometimes are a bit different due to our relationship and proximity and ties

Here is what I found on the state department website: 

https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/K1/RGA_Riga.pdf

 

Quote

Police clearance letters are valid for 12 months from the date of issuance. You are not required to renew a police clearance letter from your previous country of residence if you have not travelled to that country after the date of the issuance of such letter.
