I am preparing to apply for the GV and the criminal records seems to be riskier document to get it wrong.
I have been living outside by country of birth for more than 2 years, my plan is to return to my home country while I wait for the GV process, but I am afraid that can cause some problems down the line.
I understand the Criminal records must be valid at the time of approval AND during the in-person biometrics colletion in Portugal. Considering the current timelines and the 3 months validity, it means the document must be issued twice.
Any thoughts? Tthanks!
