I am a British Citizen and back in 2008 i was studying in Australia for just over 2 years, and then back to travel for 9 months at the start of this year . . . . .so i know i need a police certificate for Australia, BUT do i need to get finger prints done for it as well?

because i read that in some cases finger prints are not required.

If you reside outside Australia

Applicants who live overseas should refer requests to the Australian Federal Police. Applicants are required to apply for a police certificate based on a name and fingerprint check. Police clearances issued on the basis of only a name check will not be accepted.

Yes. Someone was delayed this year for their visa in London because they didn't read the London instructions and did not have the proper Australian police certificate. The link to the full instructions On the London embassy website http://london.usembassy.gov/document_checklist.html#police_certificate

the important bit--

Please note that many countries require fingerprints to process police certificates for immigration purposes (e.g,
Australia
, Canada, Nigeria). Police certificates completed without the required fingerprints are not valid. In these cases, applicants must not capture their own fingerprints. View the attached PDF file for a list of UK police forces (PDF - 338kb) that offer a fingerprinting service. .

And here's the list of police stations in the UK who can do your fingerprints for sending off to Australia. Find one near you. http://photos.state.gov/libraries/unitedkingdom/39181/pdfs/UK_police_forces.pdf
