Police Cert - whats needed?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of sending off for my police certificate. Unfortunately I was convicted of a driving offence some years ago, and was wondering if I need to get the court transcripts - the checklist has in red that if this happened in the UK then I do not. Is this correct?

Thanks :)

I dont see that anywhere on the police certificate forms that you need transcripts http://www.acro.police.uk/uploadedFiles/Police%20Certificate%20Application%20Form%20V18%20PDF.pdf . Or do you mean for the interview etc?

For the police certificate, it does ask you to provide details on the continuation page where you will need to write about it.

Looking on the London Embassy website it states this under the checklist for 'the interview' 2nd para is in question - it states I need one then in the same sentance states not needed if this happened in the UK?? I just dont want to turn up to the interview and be turned away because I dont have enough info, even worse be denied an interview. I've already been to the embassy about this for a travel visa in the past so it shouldnt be an issue, Im just trying to cover all bases!! Thanks :)

Police Certificates for the United Kingdom: A visa applicant who has resided in the United Kingdom for 6 months or more since the age of 16, is required to obtain a police certificate from the ACPO Criminal Records Office (ACRO). Further information is available from their website at www.acro.police.uk. This police certificate will serve to advise the U.S. Embassy, London whether or not any criminal conviction is held against him/her. The police certificate will be sent to the applicant's address provided at the time of application. Please note that the Immigrant Visa Unit considers the police certificate valid for 12 months from the date of issuance, not six months as stated on the certificate. If the police certifiate states "No Trace" or "No Live Trace", please be prepared to discuss your arrests/cautions/convictions with the consular officer on the day of the interview.

******Court and Prison Records: Persons who have been convicted of a crime must obtain a certified copy of each court record and any prison record, regardless of the fact that he or she may have subsequently benefited from an amnesty, pardon or other act of clemency or the United Kingdom Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. (DOES NOT APPLY TO APPLICANTS CONVICTED IN THE United Kingdom)

Court records should include:Complete information regarding the circumstance surrounding the crime of which the applicant was convicted and the disposition of the case, including sentence or other penalty or fine imposed
