Hi there,

good question about the fingerprints. Im wondering about DCF in Australia (I live in Vic). I think fingerprints are required. Does anyone know for sure? Also, if anyone can share with me how long it took to get the police record (with fingerprints), I'd really appreciate it. I'm trying to figure out how long everything will take.

Thanks so much!

You can read in our timeline & see that it took about a month to get the Australia police clearance back.

You have to have a police certificate from any country you spent more than 6 months in after the age of 16.

See here for how to get one from New Zealand:

Scroll down to the section that says: Police Record - For Immigrant Visa Applicants.

Yes, fingerprints are a requirement with the police certificate. Im in NSW and mine took 2 weeks. Each state seems to be different. Below is the section relevant to Vic which was included in my packet from the Embassy a couple of weeks ago.

Victoria - Fee $106.10 (check this though because when I had mine done there had been a fee increase of $5

Available. Includes nationwide fingerprint check. Cost: $106.10 for certificate w/ fingerprints.

Procedures to be followed for visa applicants both inside and outside the country who wish to obtain clearances:

Inside: Applicants must be at least 17 for certificates to be issued. Residents of Victoria should phone their nearest police station to arrange appointments for fingerprints. Applicants need a 'Consent to Check and Release Criminal Record' form, which may be obtained by calling Information Services at 03-9247-5907. This form, a copy of identification, fingerprints and check or money order may then be sent to: Manager, information Resources Section, Central Records Branch, Victoria Police Center, P.O. Box 418, Melbourne 8005.
