If you apply for a spouse visa and you have been in another country for the time asked on the application, do they ask you to get a police check every time?
Or is just dependant on what country you were in.

Where the regulations state supply a police check for each country a person has been in for more than 12 months in the past ten years, that is what is wanted and in some cases if there has been a period under 12 months, a request can also be made.
Principle for latter is they ask and an applicant complies.

Did your wife do this through an agency? If so they may be able to help.

It is also an accumulative time so if she has been working in Cambodia for more than an accumulated 12 months it's that Immi principle and if you really want a visa that means complying.

Hi there,

You have to take a look at the Australian embassy/ consulate website, or look at the DIAC website:

http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/char...cter-penal.pdf

This is a file showing detaild procedures for getting police checks in every country. If you go to page 8 you'll see how to get the check from Cambodia via the Ministry of Justice. You may have to google that because there are no further contact details of links given.
