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.

any ideas if you can re-do your police check so that we can change the grant date on the visa? as ours will be 7th jan and we wanted fly mid jan, our misstake as thought the date was on the medicals then found out it was earliest date so we made a mistake but seeing if we uploaded a newer police check would that delay the date

Assuming you haven't already applied, then yes of course you can do police check again, it is really best to wait until you are asked to do them by a case officer. That will then maximise visa validation time.
