Police Certificates and FBI clearances

Hello,

I have a couple of questions about police certificates in general [Independent
Skilled Worker category].

The instructions in the Application kit state that: "Police certificates must have
been issued within the last six months. Outdated police certificates will not be
accepted."

Now, if I lived in a country 1 year back and got a police certificate while leaving
that country, can I include it? How can I provide a police certificate dated six
months or less if I am not living in that country, and have no reason to go back
there? Do I have to go back to that country just to get a police certificate? This
sounds so illogical. What to do?

Secondly, if I submit my application today with recent police clearances, those
clearances will be more than 6 months old by the time I go for an interview. Then do
I have to take new clearances with me to the interview?

What about the FBI clearance? Does it also follow the same rules? [that I need to
send one with the application and take a latest one with me to the interview]?

Can anyone please clarify?

Thanks.

You may include the old police certificate but it may not be accepted. You don't need
to go back to that country to get new police certificate - you may contact their
consulate or order it by mail if applicable. You must submit with your application
police certificates not older than 6 months and you don't need to bring newer ones to
the interview, unless specifically asked to do so.

Andrew,

Thanks for your reply. I have a police clearance from India dated Jan 2001. Should I
include it with my application?

Or do I have to go to India to get another police clearance? I don't think the Indian
consulate here in DC provides that service.

Going to India is not really practical for me. Can't take time-off, too far, too
expensive, will need an Indian visa, etc.

Thanks.

The app kit from Buffalo excludes India as a country from which Police Clearances
need to be obtain. They say that they(Canadian Immig. Auth.) will obtain the
clearances directly.
