Unobtainable China police certificate: how to provide proof?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, my fiancé has spent the past month gathering all of the paperwork he needs to be able to schedule his interview, except that he cannot obtain a police certificate for the year he spent studying in Shanghai because he no longer has the passport that held his visa and entry/export stamps. (French law requires that you turn in your previous passport when you renew.) Applying to get the PC is complex, and seems wholly unworth it knowing they will not issue it, and it's unclear whether they would even provide any sort of official refusal. There are websites offering to provide proof of refusal from China police, but this costs about $1000 and it's unclear what exactly they will obtain for you. But he does need some proof, and even worse, according to someone else on this forum, the US may still decide not to approve the visa without the certificate, even if it's unobtainable. 

 

This is really discouraging for us. We started our application process in December and were hoping he would be able to come to the US by Christmas, but it's not looking good. Any advice about what to do would be much appreciated!

They will tell you what you already know.  I can do that for $500.

 

Does he have the X2 visa paperwork?  A report card from the school?  He lived and studied in Shanghai for a year, it's a school in a Tier 1 city.. the school should have paperwork on him.. how long ago did he live there???  You can't live in a foreign country for a year, go to school (which entails visas, enrollment, tuition) and not have ANY paperwork.

 

Look at it from the PSB's point of view.. they need SOMETHING to at least put you in the city for the time period you say.

Thanks for the suggestions. He will definitely gather as much paperwork as he can find and see if that can work.

Write down ALL information - names of contacts within the PSB, what they told you, dates, times, etc. Submit this in lieu of the police report, if you are unable to get one.

$1000 sounds like a VERY reasonable price, by the way, for a more professional "couldn't get it" report.

But remember - all the PSB needs to say, in writing, is "Never heard of him".

$1k for a guy to go to the PSB?  A guy that's NOT lawyer, or anything.  There was another post about a woman that had it done.  He was in Shenyang, IIRC.

It's all about choices - AND getting it done.
