For most visa applications, your clients and their dependants may be required to provide a police clearance certificate for each country they have lived in for 12 months or more (cumulatively), over the last 10 years, since turning 16 years of age, including their home country and Australia, if they are already in Australia.
For immigration purposes, only complete disclosure National Police Certificates issued by the AFP (Australian Federal Police) are acceptable. Standard disclosure certificates or national police certificates issued by Australian State or Territory Police are not acceptable for visa applications. Most police checks are completed and posted within 48 hours of receiving the application, however, processing times may vary in case as the AFP needs more information from other police jurisdictions. Get in Touch with us explore your options to obtain Police Clearance Certificates.
Obtaining police clearance certificates from abroad has separate procedures and timelines which your clients must consider. Any certificates obtained from foreign jurisdictions, which are not in English, must be translated to English before they are submitted to the Department. Your client’s visa application will generally not be processed until all police certificates are submitted. Thus, timing is crucial. You must gather and prepare all documents in time to prepare a decision ready application for your client’s visa application.
All the police certificates including certificates issued by the Australian Federal Police are valid for 12 months from the date of issue. McKkr’s can assist your client in their application to ensure a hassle-free process.
