Extended processing time for AFP National Police Check

Has anyone applied for National Police Check lately and not yet received the result?

AFP criminal record has confirmation of receiving my application on 16/05/2012 but I have not yet received the result. It has been more than 15 working days now. I'm aware the AFP does state they are experiencing delays

The NPC is the only document left before I can submit my application for onshore 820

I am in the same position as you and i will be applying tomorrow.. very frustrating that this is the ONLY document I am missing, even though I applied in a more than reasonable time frame. I've even emailed AFP to asscertain a timeframe, no response! Never mind, just have to submit with 1 document down..

Hi lili2

Mine NPC was issued o 04/06/2012 and arrived on 07/06/2012

Not sure when you applied for yours, but I would suggest to lodge a decision ready application so that the processed time can be reduced (hopefully)

Then you had better submit an incomplete application today or you'll be denied it due to overstaying your previous visa.

I submitted my application to Canberra from Melbourne May 26. Still havn't gotten a response. Not going to bother calling the number because of 60 minute delays. Anyone else in my situation?

You can actually send them an email and they will normally respond within 24 hours with your inquiry

The email address is: [email protected]

Please include applicants full name, date of birth and the cheque/money order number that you sent with the application

Emailed them 2 days ago and still no response. Guess they really are backlogged.
