  8. My wife is from Ghana, I am from the USA, and I want to bring her home. She recently had her Spouse Visa Interview and was told she needs to obtain a Police Report or Certificate of No Criminal Convictions, from China, before they can issue her the USA Visa. She lived in China 5 years ago, but has been back in Ghana ever since. We found no useful information online, on how to obtain this Police Report, and from what I understand you can only get this Police Report if you are in China or if you know someone in China who can get it on your behalf. My wife no longer has contacts in China. Is there another way around this?!? What can we do? We are stuck on what to do. Any useful tips will be greatly appreciated.
