Indian PCC

Recommended Posts


Soon I will be applying for Australian Citizenship. I haven't travelled to Indai since 2018. I have submitted my recent PCC when I got my PR in 2020. 

However, that PCC states ' Immigration purposes other than citizenship

Do I need to apply for another PCC for citizenship or would my 2020 PCC be acceptable?

Your valuable suggestions would be much appreciated. 

kind regards

PCC's are only valid for a year from the date it was obtained, so you might have to get another PCC anyways. Also the PCC is only required from India if you have travelled to India after you received your PR or while your PR was in process after submitting the PCC. If you haven't travelled outside the country after receiving your PR, immi will not ask for overseas PCC at all.
