Police records - what is the time frame for this? How early do you need to obtain them? Or how late can they be dated? If they are in a foreign language (french) do they need to be translated?
Lastly, my fiancee is from Benin but lives in Ghana (the application will be submitted to Ghana) - do we need police records from both countries?
Generally they need to be less than a year old at the time of the interview and from the county of birth and any country lived in for 6 months or more. Each Embassy has a checklist of documents needed. Again the usually need to be in either english or the language of where the consulate is located. If they are translated they need to be done by a certified translator.
