Visa Screen Certificate Needed at Packet 3 at NVC

himdale himdale (Member)

Hi All, Dhel, Rep

I would like anyone "who has gone to packet 3 stage" to comment on this one:

Do you need to submit the visa screen certificate at NVC for review or documentation of your case when you submit the DS230 forms? I recall that I read a post here that the new procedures for reviewing documents are with the NVC (not with the U.S. Embassy) including the submission of the Visa Screen Certificate at Packet 3 stage before issuing the PACKET 4.

Happy NEW YEAR!

Hi Dale,

The visa screen ceritificate is not needed in the submission of the packet 3 to NVC. You only need that during the interview.

In the instructions contained in Packet 3, there is no mention of submitting the visa screen other than the birth and marriage certificates, NBI clearance/police certificate and photocopy of passport.

But there is no harm if you include the visa screen certificate when you submit the ds-230 forms to NVC. I did that with mine.

Good luck!

yup, i agree with rep. it wasn't stated as a requirement.

but missus submitted hers as well, but packet 4 is delayed as it is already :) (approaching the 9th week since NVC approval).

Well, it took me eleven weeks from the date it was received at the NVC.

I think by February you will have an appointment.

Happy New Year!!!!

Yeah I called NVC and inquired about this matter. As what Nurse Dep said the most important thing is that you are classified as EX CATEGORY.

Where are you now rep? are u in the U.S. already?

is it nbi and police clearance or nbi or police clearance?

police clearance for abroad here in the province cost way too much than getting an nbi (which cost 100 pesos)...and waiting time for police clearance would take 1-2 days depending upon the availability of the official who will sign..:(

is it ok to submit the nbi clearance only ?

leah,

nbi clearance would do. police clearance would only be needed if you have lived for more than six months outside your home country.

here is the link at the us embassy in manila you can find all the needed documentation there:

http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwh3217.html

start of quote

  1. nbi clearance. applicants aged 16 years and older must have a valid record clearance for travel abroad purposes from the national bureau of investigation (nbi). an official letter of explanation from the nbi is required for any notation of "no criminal record", no pending criminal case" or "with derogatory record." nbi is located along taft avenue in manila. for immigration purposes, an nbi clearance is considered valid only for a year from the date it is issued.
  2. police certificates. a police certificate is required from a country in which the applicant lived for more than one year (six months if you are applying for a k visa) after turning 16 years old. information on how to secure police certificates from countries where these are available may be obtained by contacting u.s. embassy manila's immigrant visa branch, or an embassy/consulate of the country from which the police certificate is required.
    the state department's visa office offers online information on availability of country documents including police certificates through its country document finder. click on the letter that begins the country name, select the country and scroll down to "documents".

hope this helps...

leah,

i agree with dale that only the NBI clearance is required (as per embassy website).

although i remember my in-laws submitting police clearance as well (family-based green card) some 3 years ago, during their consular interview.

my wife and i will be getting police clearance to be on the safe side.

rep, dhel, and others who were recently interviewed. did the embassy ask for your police clearance?

thanks!

nbi clearance only, you need a police certificate/clearance from a foreign country that you stayed more than 6 months.

Only NBI Clearance, I never been out of the country. You need to present a police certificate/clearance from a country that you stayed more than 6 months. "police clearnce/certificate" is a generic term for our NBI Clearnce.
