My fiancé is in Victoria. Does he need finger printing done for the police check? I see the packet says one or the other but don't want to do the wrong thing..he's never had any alias' so is the AFP check ok? Thanks

If you were a CR-1 or IR-1 visa, you would definitely need the fingerprints, as NVC does not "recognize" the name check. I am not sure about the K-1. The Consulate just requires a name check (in all names ever used). Go figure. Australia knows what it wants, but the US side of things makes you get fingerprints!

Hopefully a K-1 expert can give you a definitive answer.

You will NEVER go wrong with fingerprints.

I'm also in Victoria and would love to work out whether we need a fingerprint check or not.

This document above says that a name check is acceptable, but there have been previous forum posts (from three years ago) where the consulate has specified that all Australian police certs need fingerprints.

Successful K-1 applicants out there, what did you do?

Edit: Sorry, just saw the other thread with the info.
