PCC requirement

Recommended Posts

I got the invitation to apply for the visa through skill select. I have lived in U.S. for more than 1 year but never continuously for more than 9 months. Do I still need to get the criminal record check from FBI?

thanks for the response. do we need to get the PCC only once the CO is assigned after submitting the application?

CO will definitely ask for the PCC. to keep yourself in safe side its's better to provide the PCC.

Definitely closer to 6 weeks and I would add another 2 weeks if you live outside the US (unless you opt to have them Fedex the PCC to you).

thanks I just had one additional question :

I am currently in U.K.. I have to get an Indian PCC too ,which I can get it from the Indian High commision , but they require my passport for this , and I cannot submit my passport now since I need to submit it for my UK visa extension . I feel there could be a delay in getting it back stamped..so in case I am not able to submit the Indian PCC within 28 days ..will there be a problem , or will I can get an extension for this specific scenario if I request my Case Officer?

My husband got his Indian police check back in around 10 days he gave passport On a mon and they told him to come following Thursday but if you have to submit for uk extension immediately then just talk with your case officer and explain they are usually fine as long as are keeping them informed and making every effort to fill their request I had 90 days to get our checks medicals and also evidence of permission to remove kids from uk we couldn't meet the last point in that time and they have granted us extension without any problem

Thanks Mem...it helps in easing my nerves a little, particularly because these days its difficult to say how long it will take to get the passport back once it goes for work permit extension..
