Police Report for London Embassy

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Good news (& it even came on my birthday so there you go) we received the letter stating our case had been passed over to the relevant visa section on the 28th of June. In my case that is the London Embassy as that is where I am a resident now (NZ citizen).

I am going to apply for the police certificate, I'm just wondering if that will be all that I require or will I def need to get one from NZ as well? This was suggested in a topic I raised earlier. Have employed the trusty mother to find out about the certificate from there.

Does anyone have a list of the London Embassy specific requirements for me to go over while I'm waiting for the package to arrive? I'm hoping it will be soon to arrive, I'm stuck in Spain working & am heading out to the US to see the lovely fiance of mine on the 16th, would be perfect to take with me & go through it there before submitting for pictures etc.

Police Records

Available. Immigrant visa applicants who have resided in the United Kingdom for six months or more since the age of sixteen are required to obtain a statement from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) Criminal Records Office. Applicants will find further guidance and application forms at the following website: http://www.acpo.police.uk/certificates.asp

Consular officers who received “No Live Trace” results for an applicant should contact London’s Fraud Prevention Manager for further information. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 enables some criminal convictions to become 'spent', or ignored, after a set length of time from the date of conviction. After this period, with certain exceptions, an ex-offender is not normally obliged to mention their conviction when applying for a job or obtaining insurance, or when involved in criminal or civil proceedings. The “No Live Trace” indicates that information may be available relating to a ‘spent’ conviction. “No Trace” indicates a clean police record.

Applicants are legally entitled to gain access to the information about themselves under Section 7 of the British Data Protection Act, 1998.

So according to those statements you have listed, as long as I am residing in the UK & over the age of 16 the Police certificate will be sufficient for my application without having to obtain a second from NZ?

I hope I am reading that correctly

No, you will need one from NZ as well. You need one from every country where you have resided since the age of 16, for 6 months or more (except for the U.S.).

NZ will be more difficult:

Police Records

New Zealand Police Headquarters will not accept requests for police certificates/records directly from individuals.

* For Nonimmigrant Visa Applicants: Available through the Department of the Courts. The applicant should request the “Wanganui Computer Record” in writing, giving his or her full name, date and place of birth, sex, and nationality. The request must be signed and should be addressed to:

Privacy Officer

Department of the Courts

P.O. Box 2750

Wellington, New Zealand

Faxed requests are unacceptable. It takes approximately five working days from receipt of request for the Department of the Courts to issue a report.

* For Immigrant Visa Applicants: Police clearance requests are processed by the Immigrant Visa Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Auckland. The Consulate General supplies New Zealand resident applicants with authorization forms. Overseas applicants should contact the U.S. consular office processing their cases to obtain a form authorizing release of police information. The authorization form should be completed, signed and returned to the processing consular post, who will then forward the request to the U.S. consul in Auckland for forwarding to the New Zealand police. The completed clearance will be returned to the requesting consular post, not to the applicant.
