Australian consulate should be able to request one for you. Ring them and request the form and appointment.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world.

The Australian Federal Police will be able to help.

Go to their website, just google it and then look for police check for overseas.

I just did this from China and it's painless.

Hi stevenbiggs,

The process to obtain Au PC is kinda simple,
1. You download and fill this application form
2. Get the bank check $45 aud payable to Australian Federal Police from Au banks.
3. Attached this filled form, bank check and 1 certify copy of your passport send to
Australian Federal Police,
Criminal Records
Locked Bag 8550

The average processing time around 15 days, my case was 20 days (including international post)
