You need to comply with the Character requirement you will find within the eligibility section and that will usually mean a police check from your home country and any other country that you have lived in for more than 12 months over the past ten years or since age of 16, whichever the lesser and that will also include getting a check from the AFP if you have been in Australia for more than 12 months.

The Form 80 is a separate form on which you complete various personal/family details and that may be used by Immi in seeking further security check information depending on what country you came from.

Thaks Wanderer, How can I obtain certificate from home country while I am in Australia ? so does this mean I can't put my file before this ? Although document checklist on DIAC says only form 80 needs to be send. I am total confuse.

The Checklist says you need Form 80 to be submitted with an application.

And then further down the Checklist it says for Character Requirements
Quote:
Character (do not apply for police clearances until requested to do so).
Two very separate exercises

1. Fill in and include a Form 80 with your application.

2. All police checks will be requested later.

If you feel you may have difficulty in getting a police check, you need to decide whether you want to make some further enquiries before submitting your application, and that could be:
a. Why is there going to be difficulties
b. Are they impossible to overcome
c. If b. is true you should discuss this in person at an Immi office but you would need a very good legitimate reason and Immi will have experience with other people getting police checks from many countries, so stuff like it is too hard or the police in my country can not be trusted etc. is going to be questionable.

Character checks are required for secondary applicants too and a Form 80 usually for permanent visas but if the application form or Checklist mentions it is to be provided you do so.
