UK Police ChecksFor Australian Visa Applicants applying from the UK, it’s worth noting that Police certificates are now being issued by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).

This covers applicants who have lived or currently reside in England, Wales, Scotland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland.

Application forms and guidance on how to apply for the police certificates for residents and non-residents can be located online at www.acpo.police.uk

Until further notice, the Australian Department of Immigration has announced that they will also continue to accept the outcome of a Subject Access Request made under the Data Protection Act 1998 for each relevant UK jurisdiction.
