Police Report Dominican Republic (age 17)

Question. My step-daughter is 17. In the Dominican Republic,  one must have an ID to get a police report and one must be 18 to receive an ID. We looked it up and a document from the US Embassy in Santo Domingo said that one must be 18 to obtain a police report but Travelstate.gov  (official info for NVC) says a police report is required for everyone 16 and older. 

 

Has anyone run into this problem? What did you do. We need am answer quickly since we are submitting docs into CEAC.

No. I don't think so. It has to do with conflicting information. The DR says they don't issue police certificates to minors under 18.

Hi there can you please tell me how to obtain a police certificate from the DR I’m a Canadian who owns a vacation property there and I’m thinking they might request a police cert in my interview so I want to be prepared! Although I have never spent any longer than a few months at a time there....

 

thanks

Police certificates in the DR are obtained through Banco Popular (a national bank) and can be requested online. I'm not sure if you will need one from the DR, however since you are immigrating from Canada. Please double check on that as I do not want to give you erroneous information.

 

As an update, we submitted the paperwork to NVC without the police certificate from my 17 yo stepdaughter and wrote a note saying that they do not issue police certificates in the DR for minors under 18. She is now documentarily qualified and now awaiting the interview at the embassy.
