Best of luck whatever you decide to do, let is know how it goes.
Great!

I think the employment thing had to do with the Australian fingerprint form, as it is had a box asking current occupation on there, and my partner just put "sales" instead of his full occupation - which probably confused someone at RCMP.

Yeah - the sample provided is perfect for the police office! Now I just need to get an express post envelope so when we go to the office they will send it for us (as they wont let us send it ourselves - bizarre!)

Thanks for the info regarding fingertips!

I am hoping our latest has been filed, but now unsure whether the last fingertips were done correctly, as they pretty much just added the fingertips only below the old fingerprints- they didn't redo the incorrect ones!

Either way it won't hurt to check via email...
Hello again, the email I used was [email protected]
Also the link to the Canadian gov site where it says the actual wait time is canadainternational.gc.ca/australia-australie/assets/pdfs/instructions_police_RCMP-en.pdf (you need to add the www as I still can't post links, but anyway scroll to bottom and read bolded print).. Also if you haven't already done so you should check the pomsinoz forum where people are complaining about having been waiting 4 months etc.

Lol that IS bizarre.. What do they worry you are going to do with your own prints? Weird! Ive had my prints taken in 3 different countries now (all for non-criminal reasons mind, lol) and they've always given them to me no problems. Yeah the Aussies seem irrationally uptight about this sorta thing, oh well, now I'm kinda glad I applied offshore

Oh, one last thing, just in case you do get your partners prints taken again, in the very bottom left box Of the fingerprint form, where it says 'Finger Printing Agency / Department' get the police to fill out their details, and leave the bottom right box blank (this part confused me, so just to save you the hassle of messaging fingerscan for clarification, this is what they told me to do). Alright, that's all I can think of, best of luck again

Hi again,

Just letting you know I got my RCMP Police Check results back today. Less than 2 weeks since I sent them off. Here is the timeline;

Tues July 3rd 2012 - Sent Ink Finger Prints via Courier (DHL) from Dublin, Ireland to Finger Scan in Toronto, Canada

Thurs July 5th 2012 - Received email from Finger Scan confirming receipt of prints, with an attached confirmation letter from RCMP saying that my prints had been processed and hardcopy results being sent to me.

Mon July 16th- Received RCMP Police Check Results in the mail. I have already forwarded them on to my case officer in London.

Thought you'd like the update. So relieved to have found this service. Only wish I could have told you about it sooner. What did you decide to do in the end?

Wow- so fast!!
We actually tried going to the police station to do ours on Saturday- but our local office always tries to make it difficult because noone seems to like doing fingerprints! So we made another booking for last night (monday) and got them to use the emailed form (we did the left hand twice because was worried my partner didn't show his fingertips properly- haha). Again they wouldn't let us have the released fingerprints so I supplied them with an international express courier envelope- so here's hoping it gets sent first thing tomorrow (17th July). Fourth time lucky!! The process so far definitely does seem more straight-forward using this method- so here's hoping the fingerscan folk are able to process them a-ok!

I wanted to thank you for telling us about the site- CND $150 is nothing in the big scheme of things, and knowing the Police check will come back in weeks opposed to six months makes me want to cry with relief!!

Good-luck with your application and let me. Know how it progresses! Likewise, I will do the same

Oh yeah, I also wanted to add that I ended up emailing RCMP and they responded quite promptly- but it appeared to be a stock standard response that didn't seem to answer my question on whether they had begun processing our old fingerprints or not. They basically said to "contact them back in a few weeks" to get an answer on whether they started processing... Hmmm ! So yeah let's also see what happens there! (whether we get our additional CDN$25 refund in six months- haha!)

I totally just laughed out loud to see you edit your posts for spelling errors! Too funny. Yeah that response sounds pretty generic. Really hope this one works out for you. Be sure and let us know when you get the electronic back and when you get the ink submission back, should be interesting for an up to date comparison!

I was so delighted today, so funny to think that 2 weeks ago I was balling my eyeballs out thinking this whole mess was going to keep me and my partner apart til CHRISTMAS!! Now Im right back on schedule for the end of July! Phew. Do your results get sent back to you personally or do they have to go back to the Aus police? Hopefully the former as the whole Aus police input seems to be really confusing the whole situation for you guys..

Best of luck again xx

Haha- I find t hard to type on an iPhone, and am a bit OCD with spelling! Luckily
We can get the results sent directly back to us! So happy that part is over. We now just need a stat dec saying full names of his parents ( they aren't on his birth certficate!?) and then the good old medical! Lucky he is on a working VISA with me, so we are not so much in a rush... Howeer this process has been going for over a year now! Looking forward to your updates! X
