Police clearance for foreigner

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee's a Filipino, but she spent a year teaching in Thailand and has been told she'll need a Thai police clearance.

I'm thinking about using Siam Legal to get it. We've talked to two people at the Thai embassy in Manila and were told different requirements, along with being told by the Thai police (via one of my fiancee's former coworkers in Bankok) that they won't do the background check without a letter from the US Embassy...which the US embassy doesn't provide anymore.

Anyone work with Siam Legal for something like this (or know of any other companies that can process police clearances in Thailand)? This is the last thing we need before my fiancee can schedule her interview at the US embassy in Manila.

We had the same issue too. My husband studied in China for 2 years and NVC needed a police clearance from China. However, my husband at that time had left China back to his home country when NVC made that request. We tried every means but did not yield any results. I called NVC and explained to them and I was asked to tell my husband to write a letter indicating the reasons why he couldn't get the police clearance from China and have him sign it. He did exactly that and the letter was mailed to NVC which was accepted. It took about 3 to 4 days after it was received for his case to be finalized. He is waiting for his interview date at the moment.

Write to the US Embassy where you have to go for an interview clarifying what the Thailand police said and that you only need an assistant for a statement from the US embassy asking for the Thailand police to issue you a police report indicating that you did stay in Thailand country without a criminal vedic.

I surely believed the US Embassy will do assist you and write it for you , since they are the one asking you to bring it. Good luck.

This is good to know. My mom is 70 years old and finished high school in Monrovia, Liberia (West Africa). Liberia requires that the police clearance certificate is requested in person. My mom hasn’t gone back there since she graduated high school. So I was searching the internet for services like DocAssist for West Africa. I am in touch with a company right now that can’t seem to explain their services in writing clearly and wants my phone number (yikes) to explain their services verbally. My spidey senses are tingling.

If they can't explain clearly in writing, they'll be the same over the phone.  Furthermore, oral promises are worth the paper they're written on.  Tingle away.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).
