NVC - Police certificate question...again

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I recently posted a question about the necessity to get police certificates in every country that my wife lived in. We decided it wasn't necessary because she didn't live in any of the countries for more than 12 months or more.

 

Have ever lived in another country for 12 months or more Were 16 years or older at the time you lived there The country where you used to live.

 

HOWEVER. Now that I am looking at the civil document upload screen, it has sections for each of these three countries. Now I am nervous. Maybe they are required because when you add up these three different countries it was more than 12 months outside of her country of nationality combined. She lived in these countries consecutively before returning to her home country.

 

Or maybe it just shows these upload sections automatically because I listed these countries in her residence history. I can click on "Not applicable" and then write a comment on why I chose NA. 

 

What do you think, am I interpreting this correctly in saying these are not necessary? 😟

Given that one country we lived in only for 2 months is showing up, I suspect that its just showing up automatically because it should be required. Then again, it could be counting it consecutively (you were out of the country for over 12 months all together).

Another question:

 

The NVC says you only need to submit police certificates if you lived in a country for more than 12 months.


However, the embassy website says " If you are older than 16 years of age:  The original police certificate from your country of current residence and countries of previous residence."

 

So which one is it? It sounds like the embassy is requesting the certificates no matter what. This is really confusing!

If you did not reside in a country for 12 months or more a police clearance is not required

Yes, that is the correct interpretation.
