Required Civil Documents - Police Certificates


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife has submitted her DS-260 online and the online system has given her a list of civil documents she's required to submit. The list of required documents includes police certificates for her stay in two countries that she showed as having lived in for less than 12 months in her DS-260 .They are not her home country, nor are they the country she currently resides in. Our only options are to upload or mark the police certificates as "not available."

We contacted the U.S. Embassy in Poland, and they informed us that police certificates are not needed for these two countries, for the reasons I previously mentioned. They also said marking as "not available" would be false, as they are available, but they're simply not necessary. We can't submit the set of documents until we do something about these 2 required documents. 

What do you think is the best course of action?

You could upload a letter stating the consulate said they were not required.

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Philippines

I would respond by doing the days in country math for them in order to demonstrate that the aggregate of all days in country are less than the requirement 


It is days in country of all time in, not an individual entry in isolation. So multiple entries are summed together by location
