K1 Interview US Embassy France
2:19 pm April 13, 2021

I got my K1 interview schedule, and was going trough the necessary documents to bring, but I have this question about the police certificate.

In the US France Embassy it says:

Police Certificate: A police certificate is required for each applicant aged 16 years and over, including France or Portugal and/or any country where an applicant has lived for more than six months after the age of 16. Please see http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/fees/reciprocity-by-country.html for instructions on how to obtain police certificates for each country. All police certificates must cover the entire period of the applicant s residence in that area. Police certificates for the current country of residence must be less than one year old.


I lived in the US for one year on a J1 visa. Does this mean that I need to provide a police certificate from the US, or do I only need to bring one from Portugal?

Thank you

K-1 visa applicants have not been receiving interviews for the regional travel ban countries since March 2020 (with the exception of the lawsuit plaintiffs), with the presidential proclamations being the reason given.

However, this update was released today:


Am I understanding this correctly? Does this mean K-1 visa holders are now exempt from the regional travel bans? Meaning interviews for K-1 visas can resume, if the embassy is open?

Hey guys, just wanted to know if any of you have had any recent experiences with re-entering the US with the AP document?

I am looking to visit my family in Portugal in July but I'm not sure what the whole current situation is regarding using AP. I know I can enter Portugal and have read on the website traveldoc.aero that I can re-enter the US but just wanted to be sure.

Passport for new citizen child - question on parental consent form

Hi all,

Now that I have become a citizen, I want to apply for a passport for both me and my 15-year old daughter. I read I will need her dad to fill out and sign the parental consent form, add a photocopy of his ID, then have it all notarized. He lives in the UK. Will they accept a UK notary on his forms?

Thank you!
