China Police Clearance - Help

Jedermann (3 posts) • 0

Hello everybody,

maybe one of you can help me or point me to someone that can. I am currently in the process of obtaining my US-Greencard.
Unfortunaly at the Embassy they werent thrilled with me not having my China Police Clearance.

Prior to my appointment with them, i called the Police Station where (I think at least) registered when i lived in Kunming from August 2014 to June 2015. They told me, that I would have to be there in Person and that they wont give me that in writing.

I tried to hire some Agencies but i havent gotten an reply or anything in a week.

Does anyone here have experience with obtaing a Police Clearance from Kunming or knows a Lawyer or someone with experience in Kunming? It would be a big help, the last 2 weeks scrambling to obain it have been exhausting :o

Thank you to everyone that read this.

if you are living in kunming, it is easy, you have to go in person to a international recognised notary office which would submit a police clearance request on your behalf, if done properly, you would have a certificate in chinese plus a translation in english. i had done that in Shenzhen, shanghai, beijing, Guilin and Kunming, the procedure was the same in those cities. :-)

the one i used to get a "no criminal record certificate" in person a year earlier in Kunming was Yunnan Kunming Guozheng Notary Public Office, its address, 20 Renmin Middle Road. you might have to search on the web and see if they have a email contact. good luck, Jedermann. :-)

In the evident case that you are unable to come to China to do it yourself, what you may ATTEMPT is to write a document called "power of attorney" that authorizes a named person to act on your behalf to visit the notary office in Kunming and get things moving there.

I expect that not all entities in China recognize such method, but for example during company registrations in China it is a known procedure for local operators (lawyers etc) to handle matters of their clients like this - the term (at least Chinese version) is understood.

That of course assumes that you have a contact you trust here.

Furthermore, for the said document to have any use in China, you would have to go through the multi-step procedure to get it legalized in Germany - from your local notary office to the German foreign ministry (or equivalent) and finally the/a Chinese consulate in Germany. Stamped/signed in every place.

It may be ideal to write the original document in both English and Chinese.

Here's the place
This is where we had our documents translated and notarized. There's about 4 floors in this old building. I believe we went to the 3rd. floor.
