I’m starting the process to apply for my APRC, having completed the 7-consecutive-year requirement (working consistently, in the country the required amount of time each year). I’m an individual – my application has nothing to do with marriage or money.
My first step is to obtain a Record Clearance (police report) from my home country. Actually, I’ve been told I only need a clearance from my home state; not the federal government. Once I get that record, I need to have it translated into Chinese, then notarized. I’m told that it can only be notarized in my home country – not even AIT can handle this. Is that true? Is there any other way/place to get that document notarized? Because it’s going to be a big hassle to get that done there, while I’m here. If there’s no other way, however, I’ll just have to do what I have to do.
Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.
