Obtaining Police Certificate
Police records (also known as Character Certificates) are available at no cost from District Coordinating Offices, and take up to three months to obtain. There is no central police register in Pakistan, and applicants should therefore provide certificates from every jurisdiction in which they have lived for the requisite period of time. Police certificates are available by mail. Applicants currently outside Pakistan should contact the nearest Pakistani Embassy or Consulate for instructions.
Non-Pakistani citizens may have difficulty obtaining police records even if they are/were residents of Pakistan. Police records are unavailable to non-Pakistani citizens if they are/were not officially resident in Pakistan while present here (e.g., Afghan citizens staying in refugee camps.)
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.
