  1. Thank you! Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get a notification. Seems like everything is okay because they accepted our documents now and we have an interview scheduled! He will take the sealed envelope to his interview~
  2. Hi all, My husband and I have gotten to the uploading of civil documents for the Consular Electronic Application Center. We are applying for a CR-1 visa from Japan. He got his police certificate and we uploaded it to the website due to these instructions from here: Special Seal(s) / Color / Format: Japanese Police Certificates are issued in a sealed envelope. If the seal is broken, the certificate is considered invalid. Visa applicants should not open a sealed envelope containing a Police Certificate. The applicant must bring the original Police Certificate in a sealed envelope to the U.S. Embassy/Consulate at the time of his/her interview. Applicants should only send a photocopy of the sealed envelope to the National Visa Center, but not the actual police certificate itself. We scanned the sealed envelope and uploaded it. Today, we got an email from the CEAC. The message said: The police certificate required for JAPAN does not need to be submitted through CEAC. The issuing authority will send the police certificate directly to the interviewing consulate or embassy. Please use our Document Finder at https://nvc.state.gov/find for acceptable documents guidelines. What??? This is super confusing- we are located in Japan so my husband could go get another police certificate, but do we need to? I also cannot remove the Police Certificate upload from our documents. I don't know what to do :< Any guidance?
