Police certificates are also required from all other countries where the applicant has resided for at least six months.

Police certificates must cover the entire period of the applicant's residence in any area. A police certificate must be of recent date when presented to the consular officer and cannot be older than 12 months from the date of issuance. Police certificates from certain countries are considered unobtainable. To determine which countries’ certificates are unobtainable, please refer to: travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/fees/reciprocity-by-country.html.

If an applicant is found ineligible for a visa, the visa application processing fee cannot be refunded or transferred.
All documents not issued officially in English or Polish must be translated into English by a certified translator. Please note that the Embassy may request other documents be translated as well.
If you wish to retain an original birth certificate and/or marriage certificate, you may submit a photocopy, but you must bring the original for inspection by the consular officer. We advise you to keep a duplicate copy of all documents submitted in connection with your visa application. The Embassy does not keep copies of your documents that are included in the visa packet.
THE EMBASSY CANNOT GUARANTEE VISA ISSUANCE AHEAD OF TIME.
No assurance can be given in advance that a visa will be issued. A consular officer can make a decision only after you have signed your formal application, been personally interviewed by that officer and your documents and the results of your medical examination reviewed. The American Embassy makes every effort to quickly adjudicate your visa application, but sometimes the adjudicating process may require more than one visit to the Embassy, therefore you may consider applying for a multiple-entry Schengen visa if you are not a resident of Poland.
We advise you not to make any travel arrangements for departure from your country, not to dispose of your property or give up your job until the visa has been issued to you. A fiancé visa is valid for six months. You must enter the United States within this period.
Petitions for K visas are valid for four months only. Beyond that, a consular officer must agree to extend the validity of the petition to continue with case processing.
The applicant must get married within 90 days after entering US.
