    You can take finger prints on a card at your local police station and send that card + $18 money order to FBI @

    The FBI,
    Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS Division)
    Attn: SCU, Mod D-2
    1000 Custer Hollow Road,
    Clarksburg, WV 26306

    I just need someone to clarify this.

    I've lived in three different states in the past 7 years and moved through 7 apartments (where I spent 6+monhs - you know - job transfers).

    Since I will be going for fingerprinting next week, do I need to follow the FBI rule and provide the last 2 US address (when filing the fingerprinting card) or shall I go ahead and make a separate list of all US addresses?

    Thanks guys, I just want to be well prepared.

    I just gave the last 2 addresses for my FBI clearance and all applicable addresses for each state where I've lived for more than 6 months, if required. Hope this helps.

    Thanks zad886,

    this is indeed helpful. I have just prepared separate paper documenting all previous US addresses. (in case they need it).

    however, in two instances I did stayed at the local Extended stays (for periods of a week or two before entering the apartments). How to deal with that?

    Or shall I just go ahead and round the dates to my lease dates
    I am trying to be as accurate as possible...

    hi felix! if you want to be as accurate as you can be, just state all of them, whether they be a couple of weeks in an extended stay or several months in an apartment. i would say that you should do it this way where you have to list down all of the addresses/places you've lived in since age 18 in the application.
    good luck,
    zad

    that's what I thought. Was not sure though how to go about listing US addresses for FBI fingerprinting. You have helped clarify this.
    Thanks

    1- shoud i do the police check before i submit the application or not
    Yes, helps process move along faster
    2-should i do the english test before i submit the application (i have been living and working in USA forthe pst 14 years. i also studied in american university for short peroid.i had a successful immigration application to canada in 1997 but i did not stay a long time in canada)
    If mother language or birth country language is not english then take it. Again will help move things faster.
    3- is IT MUST TO WRITE the salary in work expertises letter
    No , where did u get this thought
    4-my work experience in the past 10 years had change it since first application.i beleive my new work experience could be considered a skilled worker but does not match my education.
    Till you are able to select from one of the listed nafta or whatever that is job codes, you should be OK,
    5- do i have to arrange for college transcirpts to be send directly to immigration or what ever transcirpts copys is enough.
    just send photocopies of whatever you have, if needed they will let you know.

    6-in case of interview which place in USA has the least waiting time for interviews
    Not sure but don't bother considering this, interview criteria is not openely known

    Hi ray6855

    please . where I can find samples for English letter proving my English skills and also letter of empolying recommendation
     
  19. ray6855

    ray6855 Registered Users (C)

    Sorry, I don't have but you can write up an essay about you.

    I don't think it will matter, if you mother tongue is not English 99% of time you will asked for IELTS . My friend applied in March 2005 and he had 7+ years exp in US and he wrote some letter suggesting his job duties/responsibiloities etc/etc, but he was asked for IELTS in May 2006.

    Better give the test it and it might help your application process faster.

    Hi

    Asking for IELTs tests is completely random. My mother tongue is not english, have been here in US for 6 years. I was not asked for the tests.
    I wrote a letter saying that my education has been in english (you have your school marksheets showing that), in India college education in in English, and wrote that in my line of work (IT) this is the language used and I have 10 years of experience in that. Also wrote about the type of books I like to read etc. and it was ok. But there are lots of people who were asked. Best bet is if you are not sure of your points, give the test then you don't have to worry.

    If not write a letter and see, at worst they will ask you to give the test. Giving test saves time.

    whats a employer recommendation? you mean employer attesting to your language proficiency?
