Australian Police Certificate

Hi all,

I have just received my Australian Police Certificate from the AFP.

It states that there are no disclosure court outcomes recorded against my name (which is correct/good).

It also states that in the absence of fingerprints, positive identification cannot be established. Is this a regular standard phrase on every certificate? Is this sufficient for subclass 820 purposes or is there something more I should be doing?

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi there,

If DIAC said it's fine to get a name only check, then don't worry, as I'm sure DIAC knows what the AFP check looks like.

I have a quick question - I have recently got my Police Certificate too and there is a typo on my address (its my UK police check) do you think this matters? It says Drommoyne instead of Drummoyne for my address!

I'm sure it doesn't matter and they'll see its an obvious typo, just wanted to check what you thought as I don't really have time to apply for another one (as I want to hand in a full application in about 2/3 weeks time)

I would just explain to your CO that it's a typo. I'm sure it won't be a big deal and they could probably see from your other documents what the correct spelling is.

Please update your flag here .

I have heard of the requesting that a new police check be done, even for something thats quite obviously a misprint.

You should call acpo and point out their error and they should send you an amended one free of charge within a couple of days.

Always best to be safe than sorry

Hope that helps

We applied to Australia House in London and our address on my partners Irish police check was spelt incorrectly (the street name had a slight misspelling) and nothing was said about it. In fact we had to get an updated check as the previous one was going to expire and the same spelling mistake was on the updated one and again nothing was said of it.
