Afp police check

I just wanted to check with regards to the afp check. I'm a sponsor of a partner visa.

Is an afp name check all that is required? Or does it need to be finger prints?

You don't need to do one unless there is a child involved.

I believe your partner needs to do just the name check. That's what I've just done so hopefully it's right!

Question 38 on the form 40sp seems to suggest I do. The first section of page 3 of the instructions of that document suggests that too. But just says "police certificate", so still not sure if name check only is ok

I did a name check AFP and my partner didn't do one and we had our 820 granted a few month ago. Like Arabella said unless there are children involved the sponsor shouldn't need to do one, but If Immigration require one from you for some reason and it hasn't been submitted they will request it.

Actually Arabella and Tarlar, there has been a very recent change, last month or 2 so now the sponsor is required to do one and it also gets shown to the applicant.
as for which one there should be a drop down asking the purpose.
so go here https://afpnationalpolicechecks.conv...u/basicDetails
when you get to 2.3
commonwealth employment/purpose
purpose type 33

We applied in January, will my husband need to do one? Or should I just wait for the CO to ask?

You should be fine as it wasn't a requirement when you applied. not 100% sure but thats a general rule of thumb. hopefully one of the agents could be able to clarify.
