After submitting all the documents for the spouse immigrant visa, we received an email requesting to submit a police clearance certificate for the visa process. Attached in the email was a cover letter, where the process for acquiring the letter was described. I followed the process by getting a Request letter from US embassy, got that letter attested by Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Got the police clearance certificate and sent it to the NVC office. After a week we received an email notifying that NVC has received our documents.
Now after a month we have received the same email for police certificate request from NVC. Can any one please guide me? Do I need to get the certificate attested by Ministry of foreign affairs and get it signed by a counselor in US Embassy? I am based in KSA.
Greetings. The starting point should be to give the NVC a phone call. The Saudi clearance you sent might very well have been sufficient and the documents may have simply crossed in the mail or the NVC might have made a mistake. A phone call should help sort things out.. For immigrant visa applications, the number to call is (603) 334-0700. Best wishes.

Try contacting the NVC and see if they can locate the earlier submission. If not then you will need to provide what is requested.
