Police checks

Recommended Posts

We have to get police checks in 3 countries: UK, Austria and Slovenia. Bit of a headache!

 

I am wondering if it's okay to go ahead an do that already even though we won't be submitting our 175 application until November?

 

I know it's early, but we're going to be overseas from next Feb and it will be very difficult to get these documents remotely.

 

Am I right in thinking that they don't have a defined validity? Or is there a limited amount of time attached?

Police checks have a life of 12 months, if you get them now and you do not get your visa quick enough you could end up having to pay again and obtain all the checks again.

 

Your validation date for any visa is normally 12 months from the date of the Police checks /medicals

For a 175 visa, I definitely wouldn't get the police checks done early..

We also had to get three police checks done (my husband had to get 4), and we ended up having to get the UK one done again as we got it done too early and wouldn't have had much time left to validate our visa if we hadn't had it done again.

 

It was a minor hassle, but the UK are pretty efficient when it comes to police checks so it wasn't too much of a problem. The other countries we had to get checks from took months and months to get them sorted.
