Hello everyone,
Just want to share my NPC application timeline.

13/07/12 - I sent an online application
Two hours later, they sent me the payment confirmation and requesting me to submit Consent Form and Proof of Identity
which I sent on the same day.

31/07/12 - I received an email and sms informing me that they completed the processing of my NPC and it was posted already.

2/08/12 - I received my NPC.

Good luck to everyone.

Hey - just wanted to give you a quick heads up about my AFP police check experience.
I sent my application at the end of May, didn't hear anything for ages (their homepage displaying a 'significant' delay). I called for the first time to find out where it is at mid July (this is 7 weeks processing time). I had sent 3 emails before this and never got a reply. After being on hold for 1.5 hours (!) a very unfriendly person told me my request has been processed last week and I should receive it soon. As he is already hanging up on me, I stopped him and said can I check the address please. It then turned out they had twisted my address around, therefore there was no way I was ever gonna receive the certificate. He assured me they would send out another copy straight away to the correct address. Another week later, still not police certificate. I called again, this time on hold for 2.5 hours (I'm not actually exaggerating). The lady then told me it was sent 2 weeks ago, I checked the address, which was still wrong in their computer. She then told me, it wasn't sent out again when they guy told me, as there was a computer problem on the day (???!!!). She then told me the new certificate would be sent out the next day.

So after 12 weeks and 4 hours on hold, I have now received my police certificate. What an incredible pain in the .... neck.

If you have a child, does the sponsor require a police check? Our child is named on my application but she will not be applying as she holds an Australian passport already.

Question afp check

hi guys

i applied twice for the afp check, once by mail/money order (i lost the receipt for this one but got the certificate) and once online.

i received both certificates already.

however when i was filling out the application, i put the reference number of the one which i got the certificate but lost the receipt.

is it ok to upload the certificate without the receipt or should i contact the department and change my reference number ?

Hi, sorry to post in an old thread but hoping someone here can help.

I'm an Australian citizen applying for a Police Check and have a question about the 'previous address' section as it's unclear on the website and form.

I've lived overseas for the past 7 years, so do I need to include all previous addresses from overseas and Australia?(I would think only the Aussie ones, but just want to be sure).
And also, how far back do I need to go? 10 years? 15? Whole life?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance!

I just put my previous address since there was space for just one address.

Not sure about if it has to be within Australia, but if the form says 'country' I guess it would be previous address, anywhere. If not it would have to say 'previous address in Australia'. And police checks are always about the last 10 years of your life, if you decide to include all addresses.

Hey there, I applied online from South Africa and had a similar enquiry. It is required that you indicate all addresses for the past 10 years, regardless of which country you were in :-)

Hello,
You only need to include the time you lived in OZ.
