Hi all,

I sent in my complete application on April 26 (hurray!), and now it's the waiting game. I just read that police reports have to be uploaded in colour, but what I received from the FBI was in black and white. Is there a chance my application could be rejected on this basis? Is it worth raising a CSE?

Grateful for any input or shared experiences, and good luck to all who've sent in their apps!

They issue only in B & W for everyone. It's the format! But they have some reference number in the letter and CIC can cross check the authenticity if they wish.

So, what are you planning to raise as CSE? Explanation for the obvious?! :)
I could do without the snark. "Obvious" has a different meaning when government agencies are involved, as I'm sure we're all well aware. What I could mention is that I didn't make a mistake sending a black and white copy; I simply sent what I had.

You'd have to ask the FBI that. It's the 2nd report I received from the FBI (the other one wasn't valid anymore since I'd traveled to the US again before I could use it), and both were in black and white.

It's up to you for your peace of mind! I have submitted only black and white one without any explanations! Many have done that too!

Thanks for the responses, all. You can only send what you have, and I think I'm just experiencing post-AOR jitters.

Fingers crossed for all of us! :)

FBI issues certificates in b/w only. Don't worry. Scan it in color anyway.
