Police certificate for other countries, 6 or 12 months?

I've received conflicting answers on this so I thought I'd ask. My wife is the beneficiary and has lived in other countries. S. Korea for 2 years and Mexico for maybe 6 months?

My understanding is police certificates are only required for places she resided for more than 12 months, but I've also heard 6 as well?

This website says 12.

As far as S. Korea is concerned, they do not issue certificates to people no longer living there and I emailed the consulate in Montreal and got confirmation that the S. Korean cert is NOT required. Therefore she only needs her Canadian one from the RCMP correct?

thanks!

It's 12 months.

The 6 months refers to the country of the person's nationality. So basically if she is not a national of Mexico then no police certificate is required for Mexico.

thanks Trailmix!

Wow, this is GREAT news! I lived in Australia for about 9 months in 2006 and was really not looking forward to getting a police certificate from them ... now that I know that I don't have to, I honestly feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders! Thanks trailmix!
