They are telling everyone that their certificate has been sent out in June but no one is actually getting it. You have to tell them that you have not received it and you would like to have another one sent to you. It should get there in a few days after you tell them.

Hi all, would just like to clarify the contact numbers for the National Police Checks. It's been two months. Haven't had the opportunity to give them a call as everyone has suggested, and will finally have some time to hang on the phone on Friday!

Should I contact the general hotline which opens at 7am, or the NPC one which is 02 6140 6502? Any idea what time the NPC one opens? Appreciate all the advice so far, cheers!

I called the NPC number. I believe they open at 830 and get ready to wait. I called at 9am and it took me 40 minutes to get through.

Hi izziemizzy

As long as you don't have a dependent child under the age of 18 that is included in your application, then your Australian sponsor does not need an Australian police check

You do need to prepare your own police check in doha qatar

Thanks CaliforniaDownUnder!

For those curious, contacted them today and spent 50 minutes on the phone. Not too bad a wait as I left it on speaker. Apparently it was posted to me on the 26th of June (sure...). Was told they'll print it out and post it on Monday, and should arrive in 3-4 days from then. I'm hoping that's how long it takes and not any longer.

Smile AFP enquiry

Hello there

I just joined this forum and wanted to share my experience with the AFP application.

I applied on the 3rd of July for the check and sent it through express post and AFP received my application on the 4th of July. After waiting the dark for three weeks and couple of e-mails without no answer I decided to call AFP on 25th July.

After waiting 151 minutes on the phone I was answered and told that they have processed and sent my file out on 6th of July ( 2 days after my application was received) but strangely the lady on the phone said that they have a different address on record. She told she will send another copy and I should get it in 3-4 days. I am hoping to get it on Monday.

For people who are waiting for a long time I suggest that you give them a call as it is highly possible that your letter was lost in mail.

Another one "lost in the mail" here.. It's been 2 weeks since they said they sent it, I emailed them about this but have had no response. Now that I read your comments I tihnk I'll give them a call tomorrow. I believe something must be wrong with their postage. Always good to hear that it's not only me!
