Did you actually look at following the procedure outlined on P35 - http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/char...cter-penal.pdf
I explained my situation in the first email I sent the Vietnamese Embassy, and pointed out what it said re: the character requirements document from the DIAC and the difficulties. However, that is a good point you make and shall send them another email to make sure that the situation has not been misinterpreted.

Gee, I'm beginning to wish my globetrotting wanderlust had been a little less now!!!

Have a look at that link and you'll see it's nothing to do with the embassy just as if someone is after a police clearance from Australia, it is nothing to do with the embassy and if it's a case of the language difficulty, plenty of Vietnamese in Australia and you ought to hunt one up.

Hey Joolz I'm not sure if I can help you with anything but try sending the following message to the Chinese police:


敬爱的警察同志

您好,我是一名曾在中国居住过的德国公民,现居德国。我目前正在申请移民澳大利亚,作为该申请的一部分,澳 大利亚移民局现在要求我提供 无不良记录证明,以证明我在所居住过的所有国家都没有不良记录,包括中国。

我在中国期间的 无不良记录证明 必须由中国的警察部门提供,因此我需要你们的帮助,希望你们能够为我提供该证明,我会提供必要 的相关资料。

先在此表示感谢

Dear comrade police officer, (doesn't sound quite right in English but that's how they are refered to in formal situations in Chinese)

I am a German citizen who had once resided in China. I now live in Germany but I am currently applying for migration to Australia. As a part of the application process, the Department of Immigration of Australia is asking me for Certificate of Good Conduct, to prove that I had no records of bad behaviours in any country that I have onced resided, including China

The Certificate of Good Conduct during my stay in China is to be provided by the police department of China. Therefore I need your help. I hope you can issue this certificate. I will provide the supporting documents needed.

Thanks in advance

_______________(replace with your name)


p.s. I have never written any letters to the Chinese police myself so I have no idea if this would work. I also suggest that for anything regarding legal matters you should consult the professionals since I have very limited knowledge of the law of both Australia and China. I am a Chinese citizen but I'm studying in an Australian university at the moment and probably won't have time to return to China within the next two years. Still, if you think there's anything that I can help with, feel free to contact me via email. My email address is (sorry i can't post links yet I need 4 more posts) Good luck with your appllication.

I have never had to get police clearances for my clients from China or VN, so sorry cant help there. I can help people who need to get South African police clearances though. So if anyone needs help just give a shout.

Posting of email addresses is also something that'll not see thanks very much.

If you have a look at the Immi site you see clear reference for getting police checks.

how did it go?

Hey Joolz,

how did the china police check fiasco go? I am applying for spouse visa (820) and I have no idea where to start the chinese police check procedure.
Does the letter of authorisation need to be stamped from any department here in Melbourne?

cheers,

Lgendo

Ooops, I've been busy with work and other stress recently...

The only proper information I received from the Chinese (and in this case it was the British Consulate in Shanghai) was that I would need to ring a number regarding getting an authorisation letter, but it was only a Chinese language service so...

Anyway, despite my attempts at trying to obtain the police clearances from China and Vietnam, it didn't go at all. I was advised by my CO to keep a record of the attempts I made (i.e. log time/date of calling, copies of emails sent and replies received if any). This was then submitted to the CO and the DIAC where they then try and get their own people at the various consulates to look into the matter. At the moment I'm still waiting for information regarding that situation, but was told by my CO that if the DIAC/consulate people can't do anything, then it gets sent to a higher department where all the other checks/background/application/etc are taken into consideration before a decision is made.

Chinese Police Check

Hey Joolz,

I sincerely feel your pain here!
I went through a defacto application as well and I have lived in China for 3 years thus I needed a Chinese Police check as well.
I contacted the French consulate in Shanghai and they have given me all that you needed to do.
I am more than happy to help you here as it took me more than 8 months to get my Chinese police check!!
Are you still looking at getting your Police check?

I have no idea about obtaining China police check, but for VN all you need to do is you have to sign letter give authority to any other person in VN to lodge police check application on your behalf, bcos VN don't except posting/mailing method. There is plenty of Law firms over there that can assist you on this. And of coz you have to pay a fee.

Cheers
