I learned yesterday that there was something very wrong with my application for permanent Honduran residency. A compañero of mine, whose nephew is in charge of the passport section at the Tegucigalpa Immigration Department, and I went there to inquire about a legal procedure submitted by my attorney that in May will be three years without resolution. Your file is “asleep” my friend’s nephew said after making a phone call, due to an absent local police clearance. But it was submitted with the initial request, I said. They expire after six months I was told. It appears my file has been “asleep”, along with my initiating attorney, for much longer than a year. The day was spent resubmitting a police clearance request and consulting with new attorneys for a submission of new reactivating documents to the proper governmental agency: the Dirección General de Migración Y Extranjería next Monday upon receipt of the local police clearance. We’ll see what happens next week.
