Thanks, I think this is the right place for information and unfortunately now I have a problem. I had no idea it would take this long to get a police report.  It says up to 30 days.  Her interview is March 11.  Maybe I need to call to get rescheduled; extended until we get the report.

Maybe have your fiancée double check that this 30 days processing time is accurate? Processing time could vary widely depending on how many addresses where she has lived, if she's had prior names or not, or if she has anything on her record.

you can get it from the local police office, in the ministry if internal affairs. My fiance got hers in about a week in Zaporozhye. i think someone else got theirs in Kyiv in about 10 days.

Let her lift herself and apply. When applying let her ask, they will give her an approximate idea of when it will be ready. It really doesn't matter where she lived, who she is and how many times she changed her name and where she applies, as long as she puts  her names and tax identification number correctly. All requests are processed in Kyiv all the same, all Ukrainian individuals are processed by their tax ID numbers primarily and the Internal affairs ministry IT works well due to, inter alia, American support for modernization. 

If she hears something that doesn't please you, let her call and reschedule. She/you with her login may see later available dates, which usually are plenty. It really isn't an issue, even now

She essentially has lived in a local village outside of Kyiv all her life.  But now in Kyiv.  This is very disturbing news. 

Go to https://dpvs.hsc.gov.ua/ order it there. Do not bother going to MVS in person, they will give you paper form, but that will take LONGER than doing it online as someone will have to do enter data from your form. You will need to select where to send police certificate. Also make sure to select you want full form, not abridged. You can go to same site, https://dpvs.hsc.gov.ua/ and check there when the thing is ready. For us it took about 5 days. You will need to go in person now to the local MVS office and pick up your paper there. They will actually print it and stamp it in front of you. 

 

At the embassy they WILL ask for it, so there is no point to go to interview if you don't get it ready just cancel interview and  reschedule, do not panic, there is no shortage of interview slots in Kyiv.

Nope, '6 months or longer'. I'm afraid the lady was in breach of visa regime and will not be able to get anything. Normally, over 6 mos qualifies as residence, at least for tax purposes. As far as I can see, Ukraine and Brazil allow/allowed visa free stay for up to 90 days only. 

But visa stay violation (if there was one) is different from police certificate, which is based on criminal records? Regardless it strange to me that embassy would blatantly refuse it, since it is kinda specifically a type of thing embassies exist for. Then again, I just called Ukraine embassy in San Francisco to ask a question about passport and I can't even get them to answer the bloody phone.

Same in Washington - never answer the phone. And when we were there, for passport renewal and other stuff - I understood why they don't answer... Bunch of people (customers) and only 3 or 4 employees. They simply can not answer the phone - people at the lobby are priority. :(

But they reply, pretty quickly, if you email them. I had my response within an hour.  May San Francisco the same way? Try to email them your question(s)?

 

 

if she  was not in Ukraine as a resident, then, most likely, there is  no record of her with Ministry of Interior Affairs . And it may be  impossible to get a police certificate., since there is no record.

I got through eventually, though answer was in conflict to what we heard in Kyiv. She is trying to get her biometric passport as her current passport (with Visa!) expires in couple of years. She tarried a bit too long in Kyiv, and passport is still not ready, so they told her they can sent it to San Francisco embassy to be picked up later, but embassy says no, it is impossible, and you need to in fact apply in person at the embassy. I guess we will figure it out once she gets here. There is no immediate urgency to it as her passport still have over a year on it. 

 

As to police record, having no record is kinda the point? I mean that what most police certificates are "We have no record on this person" which means presumably they committed no crimes (or at least didn't get caught in one)  :)  We were able to obtain police record from Israel where she spend about a year as a student. Granted, there was an actual visa to go with it so that might've been different.

I might be mistaken here, but why then you have to provide your interior passport or resident ID (usually registered with local authority as well) and list all names used to get the Police certificate?.. they don't ask for an  International passport - only interior....

 

Don't see how they can even run a background check on a every overstayed tourist (which seems was the case)..  These people don't even 'exist" for MVD - it's a job for Ministry of Foreign Affairs /Custom, but they have nothing to do with issuance of  Police certificate.  

But again - I might be mistaken. 

 

P.S. Glad you got someone alive  on hold at the Embassy :)
