After NOA2: Australia

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I wanted to start a discussion (a recent one) for anyone who is the beneficiary living in Australia, trying to prepare documents and checks before their interview. We just received our NOA2 today and I am trying to sort out the police check. I live in NSW and have been researching whether I get a federal or state, fingerprint or non-fingerprint and there are so many conflicting articles. Help there would be appreciated.

We now have to wait to have the NVC receive our case, then our case number, then for the SYD consulate to receive the case. What can I get done in the meantime? My USC fiance will be here next week with me and will be preparing the rest of the documentation, including TAX I-134 Form's and ongoing relationship evidence.

But how do I go about my police check?

Also, are you GIVEN an interview date or do you have to schedule one? I have also heard different stories with this one.

Any help is so appreciated! We want no additional delay, hoping to be there plenty before Christmas :-)

Hi There! we are in the same boat :) We received our NOA2 about 10 days ago.

I sent off for an AFP Police check about a week ago.

This link has some really really good information on it from the Sydney Consulate...


Its straightforward and hopefully you and me both hear back from the Consulate in Sydney :P
