Hi all, i'm very sad now because i have a question an nobody can't help, call to cic and nothing,
I know that i need to submit a police certificate but, this is what they say in the cic website:How to obtain a police certificate - Venezuela
Do I need to provide a police certificate when applying for permanent residence?
Yes, all applicants aged 18 or older must provide a police certificate.How or where do I obtain one?
With your application for a visa to Canada, submit:
your cedula number if you are a Venezuela national,
your passport number if you are not a Venezuela national.
If you are applying in Caracas, Venezuela
The CIC Office in Caracas processing your application will work with the appropriate authorities to obtain the required Police Certificate on your behalf.If you are not applying in Caracas, VenezuelaThe CIC Office processing your application will send your name, date of birth and cedula or passport number to the Immigration section in Caracas, Venezuela and officers there will work with the appropriate authorities to obtain the required Police Certificate on your behalf. Caracas will send the Venezuela Police Certificate to the Immigration office processing your application.IMPORTANT: Applicants should not send their cedula or passport number directly to the Venezuela Police Authorities.
So i need to add just my id number to my application? What i need to do?
is the only thing that is missing in my application
is very sad because of this i don't obtain the police certificate before... somebody have this same issue? somebody can help me? that's very frustrating that they can't help me with this question. Please, i will appreciated all your help! Thanks in advance!
I'm apply inland...
My husband's experience, which mirrored other people's, was that even though they say to not submit it, start doing the paperwork to get it in order to have it as it accelerates the process. I would probably opt to include it in the package with a letter stating that based on information you have received, it may be helpful to include this document.
If you want to play it really safe, do as we did: submit only a letter with your cédula number and, when your file is transfered to the specific visa office, contact them through the reply system, and ask if they would prefer you get this document your self.
About the specifics on obtaining the document, SEVEN07 has illustrated very well how. However, if you do not live in Caracas (as was my husband's case) do it through a trustworthy gestor. You should have it about 2-3 weeks.
