    Various Froms and checks

    Hi All My daughet has just started the process for immigartion. On various posts I see info about police checks, medicals etc. She has just contacted an agent in oz via gomatilda. My question is does it help to speed up the process if she get all of the checks and docs completed as quickly as she can? Also will agent supply forms or does she download them from somewhere? Regards John

    police checks

    Hi, i just wanted to know, does the immigration office also look for any credit card debts? Or is it just the criminal check? Also, how long does it take to get the visa, after the medicals are done? I am going to for medicals this friday 12th june. Thank you
  5. Hi, I checked my online statuts yesterday, and everything has changed to met apart from medicals and police checks. I sent to police checks off last week, and i have booked medicals for the 12th june. I did not receive an email from the CO requesting these, but it showed requested on my status page. Can somebody please tell me what i have to do once i get my police certificate and medicals back please? oh, i cant attach anymore documents, as i have reached my limit. Thank you

    Police Checks

    I have an enhanced check which was done in November last year for my job. Does anyone know if I will be able to use this for the visa application to save getting another 1 done? Thanks for any advice. :smile:

    police checks and convictions

    Hi everyone, Can anyone tell me if my hubby's police check will be ok......he has 3 convictions - 1 for affray in 92 , 1 for criminal damage in 1980 and 1 for criminal damage in 1988 as you can see this was many years ago when he was a silly young man. I have been told it will be ok as it was so long ago and has been a good boy since ! lol could do with some advice as i would hate to go through all the visa process and be refused at last hurdle. Any info would be gratefully accepted thanks leighanna:embarrassed:

    Police checks online????

    Hi. Does anyone know if you can now do your police checks online or do you need to go into the police station to request them. I'm currently working abroad and now have a CO, (I think) and want to get them out of the way as I'm not gonna be home for another 3 weeks. Cheers Chidge
  10. Please can someone tell me where we post the pc checks to, (as not received the required email from our agent as she hasn't requested them yet) when we receive them back, many thanks x
  11. Hi all, I am in the process of preparing evidence for my defacto visa which I intend to apply for onshore. I wondered what the requirements for police checks are and how to go about obtaining one before I leave the UK on 26th July :jiggy: I already have an enhanced CRB check dated sept/oct 2008 - will this suffice of will it be seen to be out-of-date? Would be a shame to have to complete another as they are £52(!) and current one was free (I'm a teacher). Appreciate any pearls of wisdom!
  12. Hi all I hope someone can help. We've submitted our visa online and I printed health check and xray forms but didn't get chance to print police check forms before DIAC's website closed down for maintenance. But now the police check forms are not on our document checklist. As anybody else had this problem and if so where can I go to print further forms? Thank you, Heather

    Police Checks

    Hi, can anyone tell me what age limit it is for children to have the police checks done, and how long are they valid for. WA State approved 13/2/09 still waiting for CO. By the way does anyone know how long it will be for a CO ? Thinking to maybe have our checks and Meds done know, any advise ? Thanks
  14. I have just been requested from my Case Officer to provide evidence that our medicals have been sent away to LCU Sydney. I spoke to the Doctor and he stated that these have been sent. Nevertheless this is not providing me with the necessary evidence. So how would I go about this matter. Is there a e-mail address or a web-link I can use to find out if the LCU in Sydney have received our medicals and to chase them up, etc. This officer is also requesting evidence that our police checks have been sent as well, once again I have no evidence to prove this as these was just posted on the Sunday 10th May.
  15. 24/4/09 - application being processed further 5/5/09 - Application finalised ( all persons) I have received no email or letter and I still haven't done my police checks or meds. This is very strange and it worries me that there is something wrong-could it have been rejected? Has anyone experienced this? What should I do, ring or wait? :arghh: 175 (non MODL/CSL) lodged 17/10/08

    Police Checks

    Hi Does anyone have any information about front loading police checks, and what I need to do. I've booked my medicals for 20th May and I think I should have a case officer anytime now, but just think I may as well get these done while I'm waiting. Thanks Rebecca

    Question on Police Checks

    Hi, I have a quick question on Police checks!? My partner has to apply for a police check in OZ for living there for 12 months. He needs to get one from the UK (Police Certification Application - £35.00 by the ACPO), and then he has to get another from OZ, but this is where i get confused :confused: There are two forms - 1. The Australian Government Character Requirements Penal Clearance Certificate application (an official form from the immi.gov.au/allforms site - required to be sent to Australian Federal Police at $43.00) 2. The Australian Federal Police National Police Check (NPC) application form (derived from the AFP site and required to be sent to the AFP at the same address and at the same cost of $43.00). Both of these forms are different in appearance... Are both of these forms for the same thing? or do i need both of them??? Thanks for any help! :twitcy:
  21. We are due to get our UK ACPO police certificates back, and I assume we just scan them and send to the DIAC via our apllication page, as with all our other documents? Is that correct?
