Police Checks - process?

Recommended Posts

Guest NeilEB

Hi all,

 

Could someone very kind walk me through the process for getting police certificates please?

 

I only need from the UK.

 

Am I right thinking only my wife and I need a cert? Not my 3 year old son?

 

I've found this website: http://www.acpo.police.uk/NationalPolicing/ACROCriminalRecordsOffice/PoliceCertificates.aspx

Is this the correct one?

 

Do I get the certificates sent to me, or do I need to have them sent to Oz?

Is one copy enough? I assume I can scan it in?

Proof of address could be a bit tricky, as I don't have much sent to my current address - most goes to my old address and I have a redirection service send them on to me. Any ideas?

 

Timelines - is it true to standard service is only 10 working days? Seems quick enough that I don't need to pay extra for the express service.

 

Anything else I need to know?

 

Thanks :-)

Hi, Very easy and straight forward process, fill out forms, send with x 2 proof of address per person, over age of 16 only, include passport photo......we used standard service and took 2 weeks. Can be bank statement, or council letter or any printed (not hand written) document showing name and address. Hope this helps.

Thanks - and do I need only one copy that I can scan and email to DIAC?

Yes just one copy and you just colour scan it in. I didn't get it certified etc and that was fine. Mine took 3 wks from date of sending off.


175 schedule 3 - applied mid May 09 - CO 1/3/11. Medicals and PCC submitted 8/4/11. Applied for concurrent 457 visa 12/3/11. Granted 11/4/11. 175 granted 2/5/11!!
