AFP Checks

Recommended Posts

Guest chrisnnic

G'day folks,


My partner and I are putting in our defacto app at the end of the year and thought best to get as much done as possible before then so we sent off our AFP forms last week. We got them back this morning but I'm a bit confused! The certificate says it was a name only search and while nothing came up that it couldnt be taken as a full account as we didnt provide fingerprints- didnt say to on the form!


Also it said it was valid as at 14/10/10- does this mean that we cant use it for an application at the end of december as technically we could commit a crime in the next couple of months and it not be registered on this report? (for clarity we arent planning on doing anything dodgy so this question isnt to clear any planned heist!).


Basically can we use these afp reports or have we jumped the gun and will need to get new ones when our application goes in?


Any thoughts well received!

relax, you're fine. Immigration doesn't ask for the full fingerprint check, and they are valid for a year from the date on them. Don't forget you need a police check for each country you've lived in for 12months or more in the last ten years.
