Countries resided/visited

hi there,

We are filling out the online application for PMV and there is a section countries resided/visited
For countries resided it says:
Have any of the applicants lived in a country for more than 12 months cumulatively in the past 10 years?

Over the years, I have taken courses, and worked in a specific country at 2-3 month intervals. If I add these dates its close to 12 months but not quite.
However there were also times I travelled to this country to visit friends, to visit my fiancee, business trips etc, which puts me over the 12 month mark.

Should I count these instances as well since I wasn't actually residing there but visiting/conducting business for a few days?

Thanks!

Yes, you should. If you were there 12 months or more total in the last ten years, you need a police check from that country.

Let me clarify: Yes, that country counts for purposes of that question, and yes you will also need a police check for that country (which is what that question is meant to determine).

Thanks CollegeGirl, police check for this is going to be a tough one.
We spoke with their embassy they wouldn't provide one, I had my partner ask around in the country itself and they said they can't give one since I didn't have an actual student/working visa (my country has an agreement where I just get issued a visa at the gate that doesn't limit me from working/studying)

Hey btunet,

Not sure if you've seen this but I'll post the link anyway
Character and police certificate requirements
Just clink on "How do I obtain a police certificate?" and that will give you the list of all the countries and how you can go about applying for the PCC.

You might be able to find information on how to get the PCC from the countries where you spent a total of 12 months or more in the past 10 years.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

It's hard to help without knowing what country we're talking about. Check the link Becky provided - hopefully that will help.

And old thread but another question on this topic: Do we need to include the current country of residence here, especially if it is also the country of origin?
