Validity of Police Certificate

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

 

Please I need assistance with this. 

 

My fiancee's interview date is January 2019 while his intended flight to the States, if granted Visa, is March 2019. He just obtained his Police Certificate in preparation for the interview. However the issue is that the Certificate issued has a 3 months validity. So it inevitably means the Certificate will be valid during his interview but won't be valid when he intends entering the States. Will this be a problem? 

 

I note that most embassies, include mine (Nigeria), state that the Police Certificate should be issued less than one year. That's the only requirement they stated. So does it mean that even though my fiancee's Police Certificate validity is for three months, the Certificate is still valid for one year in the eyes of the US embassy? Or do I need to get a new Police Certificate as the interview date approaches? Is the Certificate required to be valid only during interview or both during the interview and at the Port of Entry?

 

Sorry for the multitude of questions, don't want to make any mistakes.

I don't think the Police Certificate is needed at the POE. Only during the interview.

As long as your police certificate is valid during the interview, it will be valid during the POE.

Police certificate is needed during the interview. You will need to hand over the police certificate to the consulate officer during the interview. The consulate officer will include it together with other documents in your sealed package. The package that will be pass to the officer at POE.
