Guatemalan police reports

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

   My husband and I received an approval notice for our i-601a waiver and are waiting to schedule an interview at the embassy. We are having some confusion with our lawyer about the police report from my husband's country (Guatemala.) Initially we were under the impression that we get the police report for his country when we arrive there (after the visa interview is scheduled.) Now the lawyer's office called us and says we need the police reports before the interview can be scheduled. Does anyone have any experience with this? Also I have seen reference in this forum to there being two police reports from Guatemala that we need. Does anyone know if this is true or where we should get them?

 

Thank you for your time!

Hi,

After my husband's 601A was approved we were waiting for a while to hear about his interview and I contacted the office to find out why it was taking so long and they send we needed to send a police report.  We sent it in with a translation and within 2 and half months my husband received his interview date.

for CR1 criminal reports are sent to NVC (copy is ok to scan now)

but more than likely u will need the original at the interview

 

confusion is that K1 takes it to interview

Hi there , I went through the Guatemala IR1 process in 2017 . 

 

We wrote a letter (the lawyer did actually) informó why the police certicates weren’t included in the packet (you have to be in person to get it with the Guatemala ID (DPI) or by using the dPI receipt that has the dPI number on it. 

It is TWO certificates you get them at two different locations accords the street from each other. (Polizacos is how they referred to it in Guatemala)  (husband went two wks before interview and had medical & police certs. Done within the first two days of being there. 

 

He took both both medical and the certificates to the interview

 

if you click my name you can read my whole (well my husbands) experience 

really hope this helps best of luck
