can someone please tell me the when they say police clearence certificates from 10 years ago, do they mean 10 years from the time of application or 10 years from when you are asked to get police clearence by australian immigration? I know sometimes the skilled migration application process may take up to 2 to 3 yeras.

I have not sent the application yet. During last 10 years I have spent 3 years in the US, and now 7 years in South Africa?

Dear Amanda;

As per my knowledge you are required to provide the PCC,on the basis of your current address/country.You should better ask IMMI AUS/DIAC from pre lodgement inquiry.

Thanks.

Hi There

You will therefore need 1 police clearance from the USA and 1 from South Africa.
What subclass of visa are you applying for? You may not need to get the clearances immediately depending on the visa you are applying for . Regards

You can get the US police clearance if you have not been back there since leaving. This clearance will not expire.

Best Mary

Hello Amanda

It is DIACs policy for Certificates to remain valid for 12 months of the current applicant's country of residence. So, if you are residing in the US the 12mths will apply, after the 12 months expires that certificate will not be valid if the visa is not granted within that time frame.

So, you will be required to provide a certificate from any country you have lived in for more than 12mths over the last 10 years. Time counts at DIACs request.

The Department of Immigration has the Movement of Data of Persons, and there is the similar International Movement of Data of Persons. I am currently doing a few for clients of mine, which gives movements internationally.

Hi Amanda

Arrivals and departures are contained within the Movements Reconstruction Database. These 'movement records' may include the traveller's name, date of birth, gender and relationship status, country of birth, departure and/or arrival date, travel document number and country, port code and flight/vessel details, visa subclass and expiry date, and the number of movements. The department also maintains non-electronic movement records information including: microfilm records of passenger cards from, ship manifests, and Alien's cards.

Information sharing
To support whole-of government initiatives, the department has various movement records information sharing arrangements in place.

I have business clients whom travel around the world very frequently, and cannot remember dates in relation to movements. Department request specific information and or dates I would perform the request a international movement of person.

Thanks for the reply. That's interesting to know. I guess when one applies for migration in OZ, immigration department automatically does a movement record for each candidate?

Did they have this system from long time back or after 9/11?
sorry if I am asking too many questions.... I find this topic very interesting.
