When Should I Get My ACPO Police Certificate

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

It's been 5 months since me and my fiancée got given our NOA1 with our NOA2 around the corner for our K1 visa.

I have caught up with all of my vaccines & I'm all up to date with my paper work ready for my future medical exam.

I was just wondering is it wise to get my ACPO Police Certificate before I get my NOA2?

I'm asking because when it comes to the ACPO application it say's to provide 2 forms of documentations that shows both address and date i.e. Bank Statement/Payslip within the past 6 months.

I just don't want it to get to the point where my documents that I already have are out of date.

thank you.

It's valid for one year and takes around 10 days to obtain, but you can opt for the prem service if you want it faster. You can get it anytime. you need it in time for your interview. Also, bear in mind that if it shows "no live trace" there is some form of record, and you'll need time to apply for a subject access request which can take up to 40 days to obtain.
