  1. Hi all I am hoping to be moving out to Aus in the next few months, I have uploaded all the appropriate information - I have submitted my ACRO form and I have a few minor offences from +10 years ago (Non-custodial) I have been requested to organize a statutory declaration for my "previous offences" - In order to ensure I provide the right information in the right manner, can anyone advise a UK lawyer that could view my statement and recommend any necessary changes? Also, once this is finalised/approved by a lawyer - Who should sign this off?

    Pakistan PCC

    Dear Experts, I had submitted my visa application in 2018; however, my CO has just contacted me regarding the PCC. Just to give you an overview, I got my PCC issued from SSP (Senior Superintendent Police) as mentioned in the homeaffairs website for Pakistan that you need to get PCC from SSP office. However, I have got CO contact and her comments are: ------------------ Police clearance certificates - the document you have provided recently was not issued by the regional passport office in your city - making this document unsatisfactory. It is a requirement that you provide a Police Clearance for your city and any other state or region you have lived in for 12 months or more in the last 12 months issued by the regional passport office/embassy. ------------------ I went to my regional passport office and they said that we do not issue any PCC here. Therefore, I have 3 thoughts in my mind regarding this that I myself have framed: 1. Should I have to go to the foreign office in my city and get that PCC (already issued by SSP) attested by the foreign ministry? 2. After I get the PCC attested by foreign ministry, should I have to go to the Australian high commission in my city to attest the PCC further? 3. Once I get the PCC attested by both foreign ministry and Australian high commission, I should upload the scan copy of it to my CO? Will it suffice? Experts! Please suggest if anyone of you have came across such situation especially those who applied from Pakistan and are offshore applicants
  3. Hi, I am going to lodge my PR application before this weekend and need urgent help/suggestion with a few things: 1. I am a PhD from UNSW, Australian and I have claimed 5 points for meeting Australian Study Requirement and 5 points for Specialist Education Qualification in my EOI. Now I need to furnish documents against these claims. My question: Is my PhD degree award along with transcripts sufficient for each of these requirements? If not, what else should I include? 2. Do I need to fill and attach form 80 and 1221 as a part of additional character requirements? Are these forms compulsory and must be uploaded at the time of lodgement? 3. Regarding character requirement, the border.gov.au website says that "Do not arrange for police certificates until we ask you to" but people have told me that they will definitely ask for police certificates at the time of visa decision and hence you should provide it upfront along with the PR application in order to save visa processing time at the later stage. Some have suggested me that provide police certificates even without waiting for their email asking for it. What should I do? Should I just apply for police certificates before I lodge my application? Any clarification regarding these points will be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot. Regards, Pradeep

    Police check showing debt

    Hi, I'm sorting my documents to front load them before my invitation expires but there is a problem with a police certificate from Israel - have lived there for a few years. I have an unpaid bill for cable and am wondering whether the CO will frown upon that. The original debt was made 6 years ago due to the mistake that was made by the cable company but they're denying they're wrong and keep telling me I need to settle it. However during the course of time, the bill has inflated and I would really prefer not to pay. My main concern is: 1) in such cases does CO ask for clear PCC (meaning I have to settle debt and then get the police to clear my record - the process of clearing the police record in Israel is very time consuming), or 2) does CO ask for proof of payment to the cable company without PCC necessarily being clear, or 3) does CO neglect such non-criminal points in one's record? Any experiences?

    Police Certificate enigma!

    Hi folks, I'm still in the early stages of my application. IELTS done and waiting for skills assessment but I'm certain of a positive outcome. Very recently, I found that I will need to get a police certificate for the last 10 years so I am planning to get it in the meantime to avoid delays. Following is the requirement stated on www.immi.gov.au When is a police certificate required? If you are over the age of 16 and have lived in any of the countries listed in this document for a total of one year or more in the last 10 years, you must get a police certificate from that country. The certificate must cover the period of time from the issue date back to the age you ceased to be a minor or must cover the whole time you were in a country. For immigration purposes a police certificate is deemed to be valid for 12 months from the issue date. To give a brief history about myself, I was born in Feb 1990 and grew up in Muscat, Oman and was there until April 2005 (15y), when I moved to Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, East Africa. After spending about two years there, I moved to India in April 2007 (17y) and since then I've been residing permanently in India. After reading the above requirements, I'm almost certain I wouldn't need to obtain a police clearance from Oman but I'm confused about Tanzania. The text states, "The certificate must cover the period of time from the issue date back to the age you ceased to be a minor" So, what is the age of minority for the purpose of this certificate, completion of 16 years or 18 years? If it is 16 years, I may have to obtain certificate from both Tanzania and India but if it is 18 years, I will have to obtain it only from India. Does anybody have an idea? Please help me out. Am I missing something here?
