Obtain American police report?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend and I have been dating for a little over 2 years and have now decided that we are ready for the next step - engagement. We will start the application process for a K1 visa this summer, I want to be able to go over and visit him and have understood that it could be a problem to enter the U.S. while in the process. 

 

We met while I was doing my OPT after completing my bachelor’s in the U.S. so I have previously lived in the U.S. for a total of 6 years. I have been doing a lot of reading to prepare for the application and one of the things I came across was the need for police reports in any country you have lived in for more than a year. Getting the Swedish police report is not an issue, but I’m really uncertain on how to get an American criminal record? Google told me I should go to my local police station and ask for it... Since I am not in the U.S. any longer and my boyfriend moved from North Carolina (where we met) to California (where we will be from now on), I will not be able to go there over the summer either. 

 

Is it necessary to bring an American criminal record or does the embassy have access to that type of information anyway? I’m sure many others have been in my shoes where you have previously lived in the U.S. - what did you do? :)
