Hi,

During the citizenship interview and Test with my daughter, the officer asked us to provide a police clearance certificate for the amount of time that we Stayed in Pakistan.

I asked a relative to apply in Pakistan for the certificate in my behalf and I just received the police certificate in mail after 4 weeks of applying for it.

However, there is a spelling and typo mistake in the text of the document. Month of July was written as 06 as opposed to 07 and also the word "previously" was mistyped as "presently". Just wondering if the local police station can cross the words and write the correct one with a signature in the current document or should we ask for a completely new police certificate? Please note that obtaining police certificate takes weeks from Pakistan and if we need to get a new one, we will have to wait another 4-6 weeks to get it.

Thank you for your help.
