Obtaining Uzbekistan Police Certificate for Russian Citizen

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

   I've got a big problem I hope you can help with. My fiancee lived in Uzbekistan for the first 21 years of her life before moving to and now is a citizen of Russia. Apparently obtaining a police certificate from there is all but impossible in Uzbekistan. She knows this because she has attempted the same for her father was to have a relative there to act as power of attorney and physically pick it up for her. She has no one there now to do this. Are there other options?

I feel for you.  My wife had the exact same situation, but thru Kyrgyzstan.  Even though she still had an uncle that lived there it was VERY difficult to get the proper document.  We paid for him to fly to get the document....twice.  Long story but we did get the document at the last minute.

 

Kyrgyz embassy in Russia was worthless and although they promised to help, they finally said they were unable to get it.


If at first you don't succeed, then sky diving is not for you.

Neon, 

Thanks for the reply! I am interested to know if the US Embassy helped you get it at all? If so, how did they help?

Also, did you at any time request a waiver for the Kyrgyz police certificate from the US Embassy? 

My fiancee has not lived in Uzbekistan for 20 years. So I am thinking I will at least ask the US Embassy to see if they will waive this police certificate especially when the Russian one will be clean. 

Anyone have any insight?

O&J, we did not ask the US embassy about this.  We were lucky to get the police certificate JUST before the interview.  They do waive the requirement for some countries where it is impossible, but I do not think Uzbekistan is one.  You might want to check as it is published somewhere which countries they know are a problem.

 

My fiancee also had not lived there for over 20 years.  Luckily she still had  an uncle there that was willing to help us out.  Even with that it was not easy.  Funny thing is that a few years ago we invited him to visit us, and it was very easy for him to get a tourist visa to the US.

Just spoke with my wife about this and her brief comment was "she needs to go to the (Uzbek) embassy, pay money, and wait a long, long time".

 

Better get on it asap.
