Obtaining Police Certificate
Police clearance is available and reliable in Slovakia. Application for police clearance must be accompanied by an identification document, birth certificate and fee. The records are indexed by name, date and place of birth. An application may be filed either in Slovakia or at the Slovak Embassy abroad, and is issued to each applicant over 15 years of age. Processing time for foreign nationals in Slovakia is approximately one week. If the application is filed from abroad, it takes longer.
Police clearances are issued by local regional branches of the Slovak General Prosecution, located in each regional city. Purge of records is possible upon request, based on conditions specified in the criminal act.

Please make an appointment by phone. Each applicant must bring his/her passport, two photos, any relevant medical history from his/her general practitioner, and a vaccination record to the appointment.
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.
