Obtaining Police Certificate
Police certificates are issued by the local police authorities.
Individuals residing in Romania may apply for a police certificate in person in Bucharest at the Inspectoratul General, or at their local police station. Local police stations only issue police certificates for individuals born or residing in their jurisdiction. The processing time for an application is approximately 10 days.
Romanian citizens residing abroad and aliens who lived in Romania for more than a year may apply for a police certificate in one of two ways. They may apply at the Romanian Embassy in the country of their residence by filling out an application form, submitting a copy of the applicant’s passport, and paying a 30 USD consular fee. The processing time for this is 30 days. Alternatively, they may sign a power of attorney at the Romanian Embassy for a relative to apply in person on their behalf at the Inspectoratul General al Politiei in Bucharest. If notarized by a notary public in a member country of the Hague Convention on Legalization of Foreign Public Documents, the power of attorney must bear the Hague Convention Apostille.
The Inspectoratul General al Politiei also offers an express service for obtaining police certificates. For a nominal fee (5 Lei and the purchase of a fiscal stamp) an applicant in Bucharest can receive the police certificate in three to five working days.For detailed information regarding the application and required documents, please visit the Police web site http://www.politiaromana.ro/acte_necesare.htm
Medical Exam Details
As soon as Fiancee receives her Appointment Letter or gets confirmation of the interview, the Fiancee should undergo the Medical Exam.
At the end of the medical they should either tell her they are sending the results to the embassy for her, or provide her with a sealed envelope of results and X-rays. She MUST NOT open the envelope. She should take it to the interview, still sealed.
It is recommended she brings her vaccinations up to date while at her medical appointment. Having all the required vaccinations is required later when she applies for her Green card in the USA, so by doing it now she will save herself time later.
