UK Fingerprint Police Certificate?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there again good people of VisaJourney! :dance:

I have a question I'm hoping someone can help me with.

I'm currently living in Australia and I'm currently organising my Packet3 Documents for my K-1 VISA application.

The US Consulate in Sydney has sent me my instruction email for police clearance forms.

It states that all police clearance forms must be based on fingerprints and not just on name.

Now I'm born and bred in Australia, but I lived in the UK from December 2003 to June 2006 (I have dual citizenship as my father is British), therefore I need to obtain a UK certificate also.

Not a problem, I found the ACRO Website (which I found also from this forum), but I can't seem to find ANY information on how to get a certificate based on fingerprints from the UK?

I am going on Tuesday to the Australian Federal Police office in Perth to get my prints taken for my AFP Clearance, that is not a problem. I just don't know how to get a UK certificate based on fingerprints.

I am planning on applying for this;

Can anyone shed some light on this one? Perhaps the UK doesn't offer this service?

Would this police certificate be accepted by the US Consulate in Sydney?

I have sent emails to the US Consulate in Sydney and to ACRO, but two days laters I'm still waiting for a reply!

Thanks in advance, I really appreciate your help!

I would check with the British High Commission in Sydney to see if they can obtain a police certificate based on fingerprints. If they can't they can at least issue a letter explaining that it is not available, which should solve the problem. Good luck!

For the UK, ACRO certificates are what are used and accepted.

You don't need finger prints for UK police certificate. I contacted them regarding finger prints and they don't provide this service. Although I have seen on London USA embassy website there are list of offices that provide finger prints.

Hi Folks,

Thank you so much for your replies, I will go ahead and get the ACRO police certificate, it makes sense as the application itself states what country the certificate is for.

Cheers,

GrayL
