In my opinion, the PC can be many years old, as long as you have not lived in that country anymore after the date it was issued. If you never lived there again, no updated PC is needed. Can some one else confirm?

Makes sense, but always an off chance that an NVC officer.. on a bad day.. could issue an RFE seeking an 'updated' pcc. I vaguely recall a handful of posts where this happened.

Hi Rehman. Have the NVC specifically asked you to provide the police character certificates?

 

I inquired about this on the forum and everyone told me it is not a requirement for Pakistan. Please take a look below:

 

 

HI samaab thank you very much for your response.

No my file did not go to NVC yet but hopefully in week or two it ll.i was just inquiring about it.and are you sure we don't need PCC of pak?i ll do research on it if they say officially on their website.

Expiration dates on the PCC itself are not relevant.  Only the one from your current country of residence needs to be issued within six months of your interview, again without regard for any expiration date on its face.  PCC's from countries where you no longer live need not be current.

Your ACRO UK PCC as well as your PCC from Portugal are good enough and  the most important one is your current PCC from Pakistan, make sure it's the latest one. good luck :)
