Has anyone else been caught out by the new UK ACRO Police check? It was new to me. Apparently there is now a specific check for "applicants wishing to obtain an immigration visa for Australia, Cananda, New Zealand, South Africa, or the United States of America." My son and his partner are scheduled to visit us here in Melbourne for Christmas and needed to do full tourist visa applications because of past misdemenours. Although they were totally upfront and honest and sent Australia House the GBP10 "traditional" police check for immigration purposes, they've now been asked to undergo a second check using the new form at http://www.acpo.police.uk/certificates.asp Time is now tight so we're paying the GBP75 each for the new checks to be completed in 2 days. It's GBP35 each for a 10 day turn around. Wish we'd known before!
