    Default Need Help PCC -passport office

    There is a requirement to send Police clearance certificate along with the DS230 form. We submitted police clearance certificate issued by Local police commisioner office from India. We got a letter from National visa center stating missing police clearance certificate . Letter gave the instruction on obataining police clearance certificate from local passport office. When approached to Local passport office in Gujarat India, passport office denied issuing PCC based on the letter received from National Visa Center.

    According to them PCC will be issued if you have Visa call letter?

    Did any body face this kind of situation? Any suggestion on how to get the PCC in this circumstances?

    I've similar situation. I'm sponsoring my in-laws and am getting the same response from passport office. They've mentioned that the rule is changed from Dec 18. They were issuing this clearance certificate (essentially a stamp on passport) earlier but since Dec 18 they've stopped doing it prior to Visa Appointement Letter.

    I would appreciate if you could post how did you solve this problem.

    Thanks so much in advance.

    well,
    I vaguely remember that if you write to NVC explaining the situation and that you will have the pcc for the interview, the NVC accepts it. I cannot guarantee the authenticity of that info, why dont you email NVC?

    Default I am facing the same freakin problem

    Hey guys, I am facing the sameeeee problem and it seems like its getting on my nerves. I met with the IPS officer there, Mr. M. D. Antani, he told me that it was not possible for them to issue the police clearance certificate till I had an appointment letter. Now I prepared an affidavit and sent it to the NVC and also wrote a letter explaining the situation. They told that it was not acceptable and that they had to get the PCC. Now I dont know what to do. If you guys come across a solution, plz plz plz let me know. I have been away from my wife since last 1.5 years now and I am really pissed man.

    Default Reg. PCC -Passport office and NVC Requested Documents

    Dear Friends I know lot of people finding same problem that I found from Ahmedabad Passport office but once u submit a requested documents please put below format so its easy for you to process your file fast.. And to receive PCC from Ahmedabad Passport office you need to make sure that you keep your choice of agent to your spouse back in INDIA [....Now a days your spouse can send a scan copy of choice of agent to NVCinquiry@state.gov and they will accept it insted of wasting time to send it through mail...] or If you want your self as choice of agent then u can request NVC to send a letter to your spouse back home that what documents she needs from there ...That way she receives all NVC correspondence letters to INDIAN address and that u can show it to Ahmedabad Passport office that she lives at that address and her file is in process..That simple things Ahmedabad Passoport office called "NVC Appointment Letter" .. Thats all that Ahmedabad Passport Office people wants to issue a PCC. NVC Customer service is really good they will help you and guide you and communicate with you through e-mail NVCinquiry@state.gov ....... But you will find tough time with Ahmedabad passport office because those people doesn't know what customer service means is and they have no idea what the process that other passport offices follows in INDIA...... If they give you really hard time and not cooperate with you then please complaint to Joint Secretary (CPV) & Chief Passport Officer, Ministry of External Affairs, Room No. 20, 1st Floor, Patiala House Annexe, New Delhi-110001
    Tel: 91-11-23384519,23384497,Fax:23782821 Email: grv.jscpv@mea.gov.in

    Default Re: PCC police clearance certificate

    I have the same problem too with PCC in Ahmedabad. I filed for my brothers, already send all paper work to nvc.just PCC is left. NVC is sending me letters to send PCC, and in Ahmedabad they r not issuing PCC without appointment letter. I sent emails and letters to NVC, letting them know how it works in ahmedabad , India...and told them that without interview letter from consulate they do not issue pcc, But I guess they r not understanding my situation. and I m not getting the correct answer for my questions. If any one else, who got the pcc from Ahmedabad. let me know.
    Thanx and good luck to all here.....
