Police Certificate change?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, if there is another topic about this please link it.

 

Otherwise I've been sort of preparing for the last 10 months for NVC phase, thanks Nebraska for being slow ;) , and I am still. With the police certificates I feel like in the past months it's been changed? Correct me if I'm wrong. But I'm pretty sure they required you some months ago to send police certificates from countries you lived in for more then 6 months?

 

But now on this site: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/collect-and-submit-forms-and-documents-to-the-nvc/step-5-collect-supporting-documents.html under the police certifcates, it says: 

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.

 

So with that there comes some more questions. 

As I've had 1 year working holiday visas from both Australia and New Zealand  but been really only living inside the countries for 10 months, will they still require me to get the certificates? Following what it says on the website they should not, but my mind starts thinking maybe they will consider I lived there for 12 months as the Visa itself was for 12 months? Any thoughts on that? Or should I just get them anyway no matter what?

 

Kind Regards

It's more than 6 months for the country you're applying from, and 12 months for other countries. 

The 6 months is for the K1 police certificates. There are some different requirements.

Correct, unless it's the country you're living in now.
