employer note necessary? (split topic)

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, my wife is Chinese and we are in the Immigration process to bring her to America.  Our application was just accepted by the NVC and we are required to apply online using CEAC.  I just paid the fees and am waiting for the payments to clear so we can start submitting forms and documents.

 

We have heard that one of the things that she will need for the interview is a certificate of no criminal history from the police department.  She is freaking out a little because a friend in the local notorary office told her that she can only get the certificate if she has a note from her employer.  She hasn’t worked in the last year and she is not sure that she can get a not from her previous employers.

 

My question is if the note from the employer is really necessary.  My thought is that as long as she has no criminal history, that she can get the certificate.  Does anyone know?

She can ask at her PSB. If they don't want to give her one, that's fine. Take names, and report the names and what they said to the Consulate in lieu of the police report.

Does anyone here have a spouse who is a Chinese citizen?  What was required for them to get the certificate of no criminal history from the PSB?

Frank,

 

I haven't been on the site in several months. I am from Portland too. My wife entered US in October. The police station where my wife got her no criminal history record told her the same thing. She was not working at the time either. All she did was ask a friend she used to work with to write a letter stating her name and ID #, and that she needed to apply for a visa to possibly travel for business. He stamped the letter with the all important company stamp and that's all there was to it. According to her, the police stations don't like to give out the no criminal records for personal use, so they ask that the request come from a place of employment. Don't forget to get everything translated and notarized in the white book.

 

Good luck!

@kshelton - We ended up not needing a letter from an employer.  Luckily her home town is rather small and she is the first one to immigrate to the USA, so they just printed it on the spot for her.  Then off to the public Notary office to get the white book.

 

Our application was accepted by the NVC and we received a letter stating that they will schedule the interview with the Consulate for us.  Good news!  Hope it goes fast from here on out, but nothing about the process has been that way.

 

Light at the end of the tunnel.
