My husband (canadian) is sponsoring me inland, i'm from mexico. My parents live in Mexico but not in Mexico city, they live in another state in the south of mexico. I got a letter from CIC local office asking me to "Provide an original police clearance certificate from your home country. To comply with this requirement your fingerprints must be sent to the appropriate officals in that country. Please visit the following website for further information: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/security/police-cert/north-america/mexico.asp Also, submit the original offical English/French translation of the document, if required." I went to the web site and I found that i need to provide a federal police certificate and and a state police certificate. The federal certificate is the tricky question. According to the webiste The federal police certificate i will need is called the Informe de datos registrales and i must follow some specific instructions to get this form. So here is the deal, i've been reading some member of this forum aasked their relatives to go to to Mexico city and get the CONSTANCIA de datos registrales instead of the INFORME de datos registrales, that way woulbe be faster. My mom can go and get it for me, i just have to send her my 3 stes of fingerprints, the pics and copy of my id's. Once she gets it she will drop it at the embassy. Will this be aceptable for CIC or i absolutly have to take the other route (INFORME de datos registrales) and wait 5-6 months vs 8-10 days if i get the CONSTANCIA de datos registrales. I will highly appreciate any advice. ???
