Hello all,

 we have been through the arduous process of filling out all of the questions for Rapid Visa but I noticed that they go in to more detail than the i129f form actually do. 

 

1. My brother rang the police 13 years ago and I was arrested as a result. I was released very soon after with an apology from the staff Sergeant and obviously no charge. Do I need to mention this?

 

2. I’m 43. Do they really need every address I have lived at since I was 16?

I do think so on 1, but then if there is no history at the location/station I guess there is no need? I'm not sure so don't take my word for that.

The 2nd - You only have to list the last 5 years of where you live I believe...

I-129f is just the petition. There’s the visa application with questions as well if the petition is approved.

Your UK police certificate will say “No Trace” if nothing happened. If it says “No Live Trace” there is something on your record to report.

Immigration requires a police certificate from countries where you have lived a certain length of time since age 16. Immigration does not need to know all those actual addresses for the last 27 years. But Rapid Visa is asking just so they can be sure to remind you to get an additional police certificate should you list an address not in the UK. THAT’s a lot of work for you.  Addresses for the last 5 years is typically what most immigration forms will ask if you were filling out your own paperwork.

Are you the UK beneficiary? 
 

If so, I would advise disclosing the arrest when it comes to it on the DS-160. As subsequent forms you fill in when you adjust status, remove conditions, and naturalise ask about arrests in more detail. With questions asking if you’ve ever been arrested even if not charged. 
 

I had a similar situation where I was arrested then de-arrested with no charge. I disclosed this on the DS-160. My police certificate said no trace, I ordered a subject access request and the police report just in case. They didn’t ask for anything but the police certificate at the interview and I wasn’t asked any questions about it at all.
