Payment for Hong Kong Police Clearance

Hello everyone, 

I am looking for a bank in the US (I'm In Alabama), that issues bank drafts in HK dollars. As I need to pay for Certification of No Criminal Conviction.

Since my local bank couldn't find Hong Kong on the map, I have called every major bank in the surrounding area. Including Citibank, Chase, HSBC, Regions and Wells Fargo. All say they do not issue in anything other than US funds.

I was told Bank of America does this but I have been unable to verify. 

Thank in advance.

I used to have an account at Cathay Bank in California that I did all of my Hong Kong business thru. https://www.branchspot.com/cathay-bank/ca/

 

There are banks in Philippines that can do it too.

Just letting everyone know.

After calling almost every bank in the South, I found a bank (Suntrust) that would do an International Bank Draft. Although, I had to become a member to do so. It didn't cost anything.

Now, the paperwork is in the mail to HK. Lets just say, expedient shipping from the US to HK is not cheap. 

But I have found this journey is not for the cheapskate  or for an impatient person.

Good - I thought I'd have to volunteer to take it next month to HK.

Thanks for the good thoughts.

I was about to call HK Police myself. Tell them I will send then extra in cash. They could take what it cost and use the rest to buy pizza.
