Hiya All,

I have just gone into panic mode thinking that I need to get a police check done as the sponsor for our 820 visa? As we were uploading our documentation we used the check list and I dont remember ever having to upload one. I am an Australian Citizen by birth and am a member of the ADF (not that it makes a difference).

We submitted our application on 22 Jun 17 and have heard nothing. We uploaded all the evidence by 07 Jul 17 (My partners police checks from UK and AUS included) and my other half did his medical last month.

After all of that, please can someone tell me if I have had a brain lapse and if I need to apply for a police check stat?

Thanks so much :)

Meg

Yes, the sponsor needs a police check: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav...pporting/Pages/partner/sponsor-documents.aspx

"How do I obtain a police certificate?

For instructions on obtaining a certificate from an overseas government or law enforcement authority, refer to the relevant country information.

If you are required to provide an Australian police clearance certificate because you have spent more than 12 months in Australia within the last 10 years, you must complete the Australian Federal Police (AFP) National Police Check application form which is available from the AFP website:

AFP National Police Checks

You should use Code 33 at Question 1 on the form and include details of any, and all, names you have been known by.

If an AFP certificate is provided based on incorrect information, we might request another certificate. State and Territory issued police certificates are not accepted.

Note: Fingerprints are not required for AFP National Police Checks."
