Obtaining Police Certificate
Police records are available but not required by the U.S. Embassy in Lima for consular processing. They are not an accurate reflection of an individual's arrest record because local laws allow for deletion of past arrests.
Police records (Certificado de Antecedentes Policiales) are available to applicants age 16 and over, and are issued on green paper with the heading "Policia Nacional del Peru, Division de Identificacion, Certificado de Antecedentes Policiales". The applicant's photo is scanned into the certificate. Applicants without criminal records will have "No Registra Antecedentes" printed on the form. A police record may be issued to residents or non-residents upon application to Policia de Investigaciones del Peru. Division de Identificacion, Av. Aramburu No. 550, Lima 34, Lima. The applicant must first request a fingerprint chart (ficha de canje internacional) and provide one photo. Processing time is normally three days. There is a small fee.
Medical Exam Details
After she has mailed her readiness documents to the consulate, she should receive confirmation from the consulate her packet has been received, along with instructions to obtain a medical exam. She should arrange to have her medical at latest 1-2 weeks before her consulate interview. She should fill in and bring her, passport, three visa photos, and her vaccination records. It is recommended she brings her vaccinations up to date while at the clinic. This is required when she applies for her Green card, so by doing it now she will save herself time later.
Depending on the clinic, they will either courier the results directly to the consulare, or give her a sealed envelope with test results. She must NOT break the seal. She must bring the unopened envelope with her to the embassy interview.
