Recommended Posts

Hello! 

My fiancé is Colombian but has lived in Peru for over a year, thus it is my understanding that he needs to bring a police check not just from Colombia, but also from Peru to his K1 visa interview. Do the police certificates that he gets from Peru need to be apostilled??

Thanks for any help!

He needs to bring both police certificates. I don't think they have to be apostilled, as long as they're originals and translated (most countries give you the option if you want the certificate in just the native language or the native language and another language)

IMPORTANT NOTE:

  •   You have to bring your original civil documents to the interview. If any of the civil documents that you will submit: birth, divorce, death, single or police certificates are from another country, and are not from the Registro Civil of Costa Rica, these documents must have the apostille certification or has to be authenticated by the U.S. Consulate in the country were the documents were obtained.

  •   We recommend that the civil documents have a translation into English done by a competent translator.

 

I am from Colombia  and at least in Costa Rica you need to.

Hi! You do not need to translate the police certificate to the interview. My husband had his interview back in November  2018 and he didn't translated any document for the interview. Also, he need it a police certificate for another country were he lived (Panama). Good Luck

Hi there! Thanks so much for this reply-- so, he just had to bring the original police check from Panama; he didn't have to get it apostilled in Panama or anything? Is there any other document he needed from Panama besides the police check? Thank you!!

Thanks for your reply! This is good to know. So, it seems that it depends on the embassy then.

He requested the Police certificate at the Panama's Embassy in Bogota.Then he sent a writing authorization to friend to pick up the document at 

"Departamento de Legalizaciones" Ave. Ricardo J. Alfaro. Tumba Muertos. Arriba del Banco Nacional del Dorado

(507) 511-4045/4046/4060

The document was apostilled, to be safe. It was only $9.00 usd
