i-130 (UK->US) - Police Certificate from 4 month holiday?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

First time poster here. Thank you for all your help over this process so far. I'm a Brit moving to live with my American wife who lives in NY. We met at a Christmas party 5 years ago and have been doing long distance ever since. Earlier this year we took the plunge and got married. 

 

Things are progressing on the Visa front and I'm sending my documents to the NVC - and hit a speed bump. 

 

10 years ago, after I graduated university in the UK, I decided I wanted to travel a bit, so I went to Canada for four months with a girlfriend at the time. I listed the address I stayed at as part of my submission. Now the NVC document submission page is asking for a "police certificate (canada)". 

 

From what I understand, this is only needed if I lived there for more than 6 months. Am I missing something?

 

Thanks,

Mike

I should do (although it's in an older passport - which I still have in my files). Given that, how do I respond to the upload request on the NVC page? Do I just leave a comment?

Call them.

Personally I wouldn’t have included an address I spent less than 6 months at. You weren’t living there. You still had your UK bank account, I assume. Along with your UK driving license. I assume you had healthcare through travel insurance (which demonstrates your residence was in the UK). You didn’t take residency in Canada (open a bank account, take the driving test, work). You weren’t working in Canada, you were just visiting.

I agree, but it's water under the bridge.  Looking for solutions, not critique.
