I submitted my police check dated over 6 months ago and have not been requested a new one. Maybe its different for every province

Success! My wife was granted her temporary residency on 31st Dec. So they do work on new years Eve!

Since we have been travelling a bit in China I only saw the email on the 2nd Jan. She must enter BY 15th Jan as that is when her police check expires, despite our application date being 31st Jan 2018.

So at least my experience gives a guide on the timeline. We didn't use an agent and just applied ourselves.

We noticed that when friends applied for tourist visa from China to Australia directly on the website vs friends using an agent, the direct application was a lot faster.

I'm not deriding agents or their value, but if your English level is very good there is no reason you cannot apply yourself. An agent is not necessary.

Good luck to everyone and happy new year! Xin nian kuai Le!

Quenna I got an email request today asking for a notarized police certificate. the request said the police certificate from China I provided is not an acceptable document so I need to provide a certificate issued by a local public notary office.

Thing is I did provide a notarized police certificate from Shenzhen with English translation. I am wondering if they are requesting a new one cause the other one expired as you said after 6 months, or because I didn't get the right one before but I'm not sure which other one to get as I went to the local police office to get the certificate and then took the certificate to the government notary office and got that certified.

when you got your request did it say something similar? or did it actually mention your police check had expired?

You took the right steps. You can always write back to them and ask.

In our case we had both of our China police checks certified and then translated into English (incl translation of the notarisation). We were processed through the Guangzhou consulate and they allow 1 year validity on police checks.

My wife's chinese police check expires tomorrow which is why she had to enter the country today.

Thanks I did contact them saying I had already submitted a police check in June and to clarify whether they needed a new one cause it was expired, or because the one I submitted was the wrong type of police check. I got a response today from my CO saying they had doubled check the one I sent before and they can still use it. So no need to get a new one at this point.

Hi I am new here. How did you contact them ? I missed their calls twice and want to return their calls to clarify. But I cannot find their phone number. Thank you!

If you don't mind me asking, when did you apply and when did you get the calls? I haven't received any phone calls and I was wondering if they do call interviews for China applicants

I received calls last Friday and this Monday. I think they want to clarify something. Because they sent me another email to ask for more info.

I lodged the application end Nov, and completed uploading documents mid Dec before Xmas. They asked for Police cert and medical checkup in mid Dec.

I applied from Beijing. We were married over 10+ with a child.
