It's super easy. We were in and out within 20 minutes. We did it on a Saturday, had it back by the following Friday, if I remember correctly.

As you're already a citizen (or PR for other sponsors) the "must enter by" is irrelevant, so I would think the 12 month validity date is not as strict. But again that's just my opinion. We don't really have enough history as the sponsor police check requirement hasn't been in effect for that long. I'd be happy to be corrected if an RMA (or anyone else) comes along with more knowledge of the issue.
Hello tijanaoc... I have a Q about your timeline... Will PM if that's alright?

I ended up going to Commissionairies Canada in Victoria, and got my digital prints electronically done. Seemed like a very straight forward process.

However, that was on the 16th of November and I still havent received my police check from the RCMP in the mail?

I thought it was only 72 hours and then they mail it (which shouldnt take too long to post).

Its been just under two weeks now, and still nothing. I am starting to get concerned as I leave Canada to fly back home to Oz in about 10 days. I will try call them first thing tomorrow morning (they are closed now in Ottawa and I am in BC), but does anyone have any input or experiences as to why it seems to be taking this long? I know for a fact there is no criminal record on my part haha.

Cheers,

We verified through the site directly to find out who was able to provide us with a proper RCMP check (with fingerprinting).
We completed ours in June and did not apply until August once they came back. We may just have to reapply.
By the time they verify you at the RCMP level, you will be long gone (Dec 9 or later) before they are able to provide the reply and certificate.
We paid about 80 each here in Toronto for ours, both my spouse/sponsor and myself/applicant.

Thanks for the reply cbr,

I really do apologise, but I am a little confused by your reply.

Which site are you referring to? And when you say you applied in August when they came back - Are you referring to your visa application? When you say by the time they verify you - do you mean the police check etc? It is quoted at 72 hours. Just wondering why you think it will not be done by 9th December?

Again, I thought it was a 72 hour turnaround (plus time for it to arrive by post).

Which company did you go through for your fingerprints to forward on to the RCMP?

Thanks, if you could elaborate a bit more on your post that would be great, I am a little confused.

Cheers!

Hey, sorry for the delayed reply. Happy to help.

Did you receive any type of reference number with your prints? Not for the purchase of it, but there's a number the company uses that is directly linked with the RCMP.

Edit: Just checked my forms. We received a reference number that started with DCN. There was also an email and a phone number to the RCMP in Ottawa. If you'd like I can PM you those?

No worries and thanks for the reply!

Yes I did find the DCN reference number, and it also lists a contact number to call, which I googled and is the RCMP headquarters in Ottawa. I called but was on hold for an hour and had to leave to go to work. Will try again tomorrow.

Thanks again for your reply!

Uh oh. Not a good situation for me.

Upon looking over my print out from the Commissionaries, it turns out the apartment number is missing from the address provided!

This is not ideal, as I literally leave Canada next Friday, and it is now Saturday so I cannot call anyone until Monday morning.

I am positive it will get sent back as undeliverable to the RCMP in Ottawa. It is my friends address too, so the mailman/apartment owner will not be able to link my name to the address.

To top it all off, DIBP have just requested Medicals and police checks.

Agh

Suppose I was a bit vague... depending on the time of day or who is at my feet (I have two littles needing me often) I may have missed some key points there...
We applied in June for my rcmp check with the intent on lodging the 309 once it came back but we had delays with 888 stat decs coming back to us timely and a few other things... we did get my check back by end of June and once the majority was compiled we lodged beginning of August even tho my rcmp check will expire early next June... may or may not be adequate time for a decision but we will cross that bridge later.
I found out about the place we went to for checks through the department website to make sure it was a legit choice... link after link took us to the company that could conduct the checks that the Australia DIBP would accept.
Hope this clarifies your qs.
