Hi

My Wife is doing an I-130 for me in London so we can live in USA, they want a police clearance certificate, how do I get one, what information is on it, how many years do they go back for the information? do I just go to a police station and ask for one? will they know what I am talking about? is it the same as an enhanced CRB check? any advice appreciated. Thanks

Police Records

Available. Immigrant visa applicants who have resided in the United Kingdom for six months or more since the age of sixteen are required to obtain a statement from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) Criminal Records Office. Applicants will find further guidance and application forms at the following website: http://www.acpo.poli...ertificates.asp

Consular officers who received “No Live Trace” results for an applicant should contact London’s Fraud Prevention Manager for further information. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 enables some criminal convictions to become 'spent', or ignored, after a set length of time from the date of conviction. After this period, with certain exceptions, an ex-offender is not normally obliged to mention their conviction when applying for a job or obtaining insurance, or when involved in criminal or civil proceedings. The “No Live Trace” indicates that information may be available relating to a ‘spent’ conviction. “No Trace” indicates a clean police record.

Applicants are legally entitled to gain access to the information about themselves under Section 7 of the British Data Protection Act, 1998.

Dear

Please tell me whether they consider Credit History while issuing the police clearance certificate, as i have not paid one of my mobile bill of litttle amout, does the red reminder from the debt collection agency spoil my PCC ????

Please reply asap, thanks

They do not look at credit history when you apply for a police certificate. They have no need to as the two are not linked.

Police certificate states that the following name person is not found guily in any crime, there is nothing to do with your credit history, they are two diff system and police certificate is purely based on criminal history but not on credit history. So dont worry about it.......if you are all cleared in criminal history then u will be gettin your certificate in 2 weeks........my suggestion to you send them 3pounds extra for special delivery, because i had lost my first one in the delivery so i had to apply for a copy of certificate that arrived by special delivery but luckily i got the previous one as well after 2 months..............
