We didn't apply with police checks as they also expire after a year. Our letter that we received after application stated

"Character Requirements

You must provide a police clearance certificate(s) for UK. You must provide a police clearance that includes all names by which you have been known. The police clearance(s) must be a scanned colour copy uploaded to your ImmiAccount
Please provide the following police clearances:
UK Police Check

Persons who require a UK police clearance should apply for a ‘Police certificate’ issued by ACPO (The Association of Chief Police Officers). The Police Certificates will cover applicants who have lived or currently reside in England, Wales, Scotland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. There is also the capacity for police certificates to be issued for Northern Ireland.

If you are a currently serving or ex-member of the UK armed forces, you and any dependants aged 16 years and over must indicate this by completing the relevant question on the application form when applying for your ACPO certificate.
How to apply – application forms and guidance on how to apply for the police certificates for residents and non-residents can be located online at: http://www.acro.police.uk/police_certificates.aspx"


I am going to get hubby to apply for the police checks around the same time he does his medicals so that they expire at the same time!

Hi. I applied in September and was told to wait 6 months for both medicals and police checks.
Good luck

Thanks everyone for the help. This puts my nerves at ease. I am enrolled in university until November 2015 and I just can't leave Ireland till I get my degree and I didn't want my police certs to be going out of date and me having to leave for Australia while I am supposed to be in Ireland to graduate.

Hi guys, I thought I would post my recent experience with the AHC London.
We lodged our 309 visa on 6th Nov 2013, we then moved to Australia and my partner was on a tourist visa. We got notification on June 1st that the visa had been granted, and on July 6th we had our validation flight to NZ, hope this helps!

Hi nebodyhome

I've just submitted my online application yesterday and if my visa isn't granted by October 2015 am planning on doing the same thing (head out on a tourist visa)

How did you go about arranging things with your CO? Was it as simple as emailing when you were heading over to NZ

Let's hope it's nearer the 10 month for both of us!!
