Visa K1 denied

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently had my interview and I got denied. They says the police certificates I gave them was not « based on Privacy Act ». I have no clue what that is, I thought the ones I had were good. They are requesting me to send the right document by Canada Post through mail with my passeport and expect an answer between 6-8 weeks. I could use some guidance, could I be declined again even if I file the right document? Also my visa approval was ending this week, will I need to ask for an extension?

It looks like this is canada-specific

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Visa-Reciprocity-and-Civil-Documents-by-Country/Canada.html

 

Under "Police, Court, Prison records" it says

 

Procedure for Obtaining: To obtain this document, you must submit your fingerprints to a local police service or RCMP-approved partner agency.  YOU MUST STATE THAT YOU ARE REQUESTING THE RECORD UNDER THE PRIVACY ACT.  Do not select “Visa/Border Crossing” as the purpose of the request. You must also specifically request the record which includes the “RCMP National Repository entire holdings.”  

 

SO I assume you didn't do this and therefore sent the wrong type of certificate?

 

If they are asking you to resend, I'm assuming you'll be fine if you do as they ask.

 

Its good if you fill in your timeline... it gives other posters information about you that will help them better answer your questions.

I went down to my town’s police station, they gave me my clearance for the wrong type of visa, I didn’t know I had the wrong one until the officer at the consulate pointed it out. I will get the right document within a few business days and will send it back. I’m just worried my approval notice will be expired by then and it could cause a problem.

I agree with geowrian, consulates can extend the validity dates of the approved K1 petition, if the petition is still being processed. If you want to be sure, contact the consulate and inquire about a petition validity extension. There is some information about that very topic in the DOS link FAQs:

 

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/nonimmigrant-visa-for-a-fiance-k-1.html

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

check this out ,might have little insight ,  should be an easy fix ! good luck .

 

http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/making-requests-the-privacy-act

the above link won't give you the right police certificate that the canadian consulate requests for. pls do not request for this.

 

what you need is this:

 

http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/steps-getting-a-certified-criminal-record-check

 

as a summary, process is:

1 - go to a fingerprinting company accredited by RCMP - search the web. in my case, i went to novel notary services which is conveniently located near my home.

2 - this company will get you to fill up the form, get your photo, get your fingerprint, and GET YOUR MONEY (about $50-60)! LOL make sure that you indicate UNDER PRIVACY ACT and RCMP National Repository entire holdings. Read the US gov instructions for details. Print it if needed so you can show the guy the instructions. but i bet they already know about this. we are not the first one to request such. hehehehe

3 - they will send the forms to RCMP for processing.

4 - wait for the certificate to arrive in the mail. mine arrived less than 2 weeks since i have no criminal records.

 

good luck!
