Jenifer", Wy wife's been denied after the interview under

Hello "Jenifer",Wy wife's been denied after the interview under 221(g) in Singapore because of the missing police certificate from China that we can not obtain. We are moving back to France in 2 weeks. One hand you explained us that this police certificate "It is not a ground of inadmissibility" on the other hand that "a consular officer is free to adjudicate".If we move the file to french US embassy, would an new officer in Paris even be allowed to adjudicate we don't need that document anymore after the denial (based on my evidences that Shanghai that doesn't issue it anymore) ? or not even ?If he literally can't, we might not even transfer the file and fly back later here. If he possibly can, we would transfer to France and try our luck.Thank you.

Thank you for your quick reply. So indeed it sounds risky

Thank you for your quick reply. So indeed it sounds risky for my wife to travel even as a tourist to the USA.I've recently lost my job and we must leave Singapore by the 31st of August. We are flying to France.Knowing that we will most likely not be able to receive me wife's criminal clearance record from Shanghai before we leave I would like to know our best course of action.The consular officer has refused my wife's application. He has not indicated she is even eligible to apply for a waiver.What are our options? Request the file to be forwarded to the US embassy of Paris and hope that the consular officer there is more accommodating?In our emails exchanges with the consular officer in Singapore he just keeps requesting documents which are un-obtainable (Either the criminal clearance certificate or letter from the same agency stating they will not issue one). Either of these documents are not possible to get at the moment in shanghai. This is based on our research after contacting the 2 agents we could find on-line who provide this service for people not living in China.

My French wife's immigrant visa petition was recently

Hello,My French wife's immigrant visa petition was recently rejected, under section 221(g) ("Needs China Police cert as Applicant held Z visa previously for more than 1 year"), following her interview with the consular officer in the US embassy of Singapore.Under normal circumstances she is allowed to travel to the USA as a tourist for up to 3 months (ESTA waiver program, but her last ESTA is expired). Now that we are this far in the Green card process, is she barred from applying for the ESTA and travelling to the USA, as a tourist, until the immigrant Visa application is completely followed through? It is understood that she would not overstay any tourist Visa.Will applying for an ESTA now make things worse for her IV application?Thanks for your further reply

My wife went to her interview on july 30th of last year in

My wife went to her interview on july 30th of last year in dominican republic. Her case is a hold case/221 g & refusals/214b, I have applied for my wife and step daughter. we have been married for 3 years and we have been together for 6 years. we have submitted all documentation that they asked for. I was told i would probably get an answer by December of 2015, yet nothing. I have called several times, but no one can give me a straight answer. in fact, i can't speak to someone directly at the embassy in Santo Domingo. I have a schedule trip to DR, and I'm wondering if I can show up to the embassy and request an update personally. this separation is causing problems in my marriage.
