  1. Hello everyone, I have a question. I received the initial letter from the Embassy telling me to get the documents and fill out the DS-160. Afterwards I received the email that the Embassy requested me to get a VOG (criminal background check/ police certificate in NL) with a special code so I used that. The VOG has a processing time of 1-4 weeks. Considering potential back log at the embassy; should I send my letter back requesting them to make my interview appointment? And should I get the VOG translated after I receive it, I know it contains an English description but does the Embassy consider that enough? Thank you for your help.
  2. Hi I need your advice My Egyptian wife case in the national Visa Center they excepted all documentation’s and applications except her birth certificate , marriage certificate And police certificate and they send me a message saying that I have replace this documents with an acceptable documents from the correct issuing authority.

  3. 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?

  5. Will the Consulate or Embassy accept a Scan Copy of a Police Certificate at the Interview?
  6. We are currently in the waiting process for our NOA2 and are trying to determine when to start attempting to obtain a police certificate from Ghana. My fiance is Ghanian but lives abroad, so he cannot go to Accra and have his fingerprints done for the certificate. Does anyone have experience of getting a police certificate remotely and how long did that process take you? Did is go smoothly? Any advice is welcome!
  7. I am in the NVC process and pretty much all my documents have been accepted except for the police certificate! My husband, who we got the police certificate for, is from NEW ZEALAND and they sent the police certificate straight to the embassy, so we don't receive anything but an email confirming the police have sent the info to the embassy. So my question is WHAT IN THE WORLD DO I UPLOAD?? I read somewhere that they uploaded the confirmation email, I tried that and it didn't work. I have absolutely no idea what to do. Any help is appreciated!
  8. Hi everyone, Do I still need the United Kingdom Police Certificate for my K1 visa interview at Malaysia Embassy? I was residing in the United Kingdom for a year for my Master's Degree. But I was flying back and froth from UK and the States, spending total of 6 months in the UK and 6 months in the US with my fiance during my Master's Degree. Does that still count as 1 year? Is it necessary for me to get the UK police certificate eventhough I am no longer staying in the United Kingdom, and I'm back living in Malaysia while waiting for my interview at US Embassy in Malaysia. The reason I want to double confirm if I need the UK police certificate it's because the price is very expensive, processing fee is £55 and shipping fee is £48. If anyone has or had similar situation as me and who has/had gone through the K1 visa process, would appreciate the advice.
  9. From what I can gather on this forum, one of the pre-interview forms is a police certificate/check from any country you've spent more than 6 months in. Can anyone give me the details as to what type of police certificate/check is required? (Ideally an official link to where this info is posted?) In particular, does anyone know if a fingerprint check or just a name check is needed for an Australian police check, for those who have spent more than 6 months in Australia in the past, but do not currently reside in Australia? We have not received a request from the NVC for these documents yet, but are getting closer to the time we will need all that info, and I want to ensure we have these documents ready to go when needed, since it may take some time to get these completed/mailed. Thank you for your help!
