Please a solid answer on fingerprints for police check

20 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I just got news about my petition arriving at the Sydney consulate.

I am about to do the police check and this forum is confusing the hell out of me. Everywhere on the official consulate site, emails from them and on the AFP website says a fingerprint check is NOT NEEDED, it is only needed if you have had other aliases. The only condition is that it has to be full disclosure and include all aliases ever used.

Can I get confirmation from anyone that has been denied because they didn't have a fingerprint check or rather accepted with just a name check? Because I don't really want to wait 4-6 weeks, pay over $100 more and have to physically go to a police station, when the name check alternative can all be done online very quickly.

I just want some solid answers, as the dozens of posts about this on this thread give so many mixed messages.

Hi there

I had my interview last week and was approved.

I originally did a fingerprint check but I realised I didn't do a 'full disclosure' so I applied again for just a name check. I didn't receive the original incorrect fingerprint check for over a month and a half whereas I received the name check within 3 business days.

I only included my name check in my documents that I brought with me to the interview and I had no issues.

Obviously every CO is different so i don't know, you may want to do the fingerprints just to cover your bases - thats up to you.

I had my interview last Thursday and took a full disclosure without fingerprints and it was fine.

As long as it names all aliases you've had you're sweet.

They take fingerprints at the embassy anyway.

Hi Kate43,

When doing the online application on the AFP website did you select code 33 or code 35?

It says code 35 is only for 'unspent offenses' and 33 is 'all offenses' so I presume code 33 is correct?

Can any of you guys help me out.. I kinda have the same question and you are the only ones I have seen from Australia discussing this, so woo thanks! My fiance applied for a police certificate and I am not sure if he is getting the correct one.. He ordered #35, and I think that isnt the correct one...How do you know what form is a complete disclosure or not? Can I get some help? haha thanks

Hey,

I am about to do mine, so can't really say if I'm right or not :-P, but I think the code 33 gives a full disclosure. As it says its for all offenses and the code 35 says its just for unspent offences. That's my guess

I just did a standard/full disclosure so it showed any aliases. But I didn't do the fingerprints as I was told it wasn't necessary. And it was fine.

They do fingerprints at the embassy like twice sometimes anyway.

Hey thanks for the reply! Sorry to sound repetitive but the full disclosure,..is that 33 or 35? Lol sorry! this is like the 1 thing I put my fiancé in charge of but I'm still trying to double check to make sure he's doing the right thing ?

Thanks! Good luck!

I put #33 - as it lists all offences.

Thank you so much i really appreciate your help!

May I ask how long it took to get your interview from the day your case left the NVC. We're going on over a week with no word ?

Oh ok thanks. Yeah it seems like people hear really quickly judging by their timelines so I'm going on 13 days and the embassy says they haven't received our file yet

Hey stephelliot, yeah my timeline dates are correct, I was surprised how quickly I got my interview, and I don't know what the normal wait time is.

I requested a sooner date cos I was organised beforehand, but there wasn't anything available so I would definitely suggest you contact them and ask, doesn't hurt ! :)

I can't believe they're making you wait another 2.5 months!! They're crazy
