Do you know that your visa application can be rejected?
Or, you may have to face off delay in your visa processing. Why?
It’s just because you may have forgotten attaching a PCC. It’s the police
clearance certificate. The foreign immigration authority would never permit your
entry without it.
So, always ask to yourself while collecting all attachments of your visa
application-Have you attached a PCC with your visa application?
No PCC Means No Visa:
If we look at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
data, it receives approximately 6 million applications annually. India’s share
is about 65,000 H-1B visa applications for the FY 2019. Hundreds of aspirants
and employers file this visa petition every year. And, the lottery system
decides their fate. Thereby, only a few manage to bring the luck on their side.
You should hurry up if you’re willing to get it. The USCIS has already received
20,000 H-1B visa petitions for advanced degree exemption. And, the authority
will receive more petitions in the upcoming months. The recent update has made
it a bit difficult to pass through the visa-processing. If the US visa authority
won’t get petition of the ‘related entity’ from the parent company, affiliate
and a subsidiary, it would reject that one. Those multiple entries symbolize a
legitimate business need.
Let’s say, if you’re a related entity, you would be the petitioner. You can file
petition from the company, its affiliate or, even, its subsidiary company. Your
ordeal would not end here. Your luck would make heads and tails because of the
Suppose you got lucky. Even though you won the lottery, the visa authority shows
you the door. It would happen if you don’t have the Police Clearance Certificate
to support your visa application. You can’t qualify to work across the boundary
then. The immigration authority wants a proof that you’re not a criminal.
Verbal statement won’t work here. You must have an authentic proof to showcase
your good conduct.
Checklist of the Countries that Mandate PCC:

·Australia and many more countries
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has nearly 2.6 million Indians. It has requested

From where can foreigners get it in India?
If you’re born abroad and your father and forefather are not Indians, you would
be a foreigner. But the global regulations of immigration in a few countries
mandate to present it. It happens to the foreigners who have worked here, but
now, are re-settling in another foreign country.
For example, you’re a citizen of Poland. You worked 5 months in India.
Subsequently, your job-posting took you to UAE for 6 months. Then, the company
placed you in the USA. In this case, you have to submit the PCC for a visa in
the resident country if you want to work there. You would need to withdraw it
from all countries wherein you worked previously. Otherwise, your immigration
request would be rejected.
