To obtain a police clearance certificate (PCC) from Australia, download the application form from our official website, complete the form with accurate details, attach copies of identification documents, get your fingerprints taken by our experts (home service is also available), and submit it along with the required fees. Processing times vary but typically take a few weeks. Once processed, the certificate will be sent by mail or made available for pickup.

Q. Do I need fingerprinting for Australian police clearance?

A. Yes, fingerprinting is required for an Australian police clearance. It is required to verify your identity and conduct a thorough background check. When applying for a PCC, you need to provide fingerprints, either through ink-and-paper methods or electronic fingerprinting, depending on the procedures of the police force. You can contact us about how to submit fingerprints as part of your application.

Q. How long does it take to get PCC from Australia?

A. The processing time to receive the certificate once the application, including required documents and fingerprints, is submitted varies depending on the checks needed. The process speeds up if you have not been charged with any criminal activity in the past.

Q. How long is PCC valid for Australia?

A. There are no standard validity periods. The validity can vary depending on the specific requirements of the organization or country requesting the certificate. Some may accept a PCC issued within the last three to six months, while others may have different criteria. To ensure compliance with the validity requirements, it is recommended to check with the requesting authority or organization regarding their specific timeframe.

Q. Is my police clearance certificate from Australia recognized internationally?

A. Yes, the Australian PCC is recognized internationally. However, the acceptance and recognition of PCC for background checks for various purposes, like employment or visa applications, can vary by country and institution.

Q. What is the difference between a Police Clearance Certificate and a Criminal Record Check?

A. Both a police clearance certificate and a criminal record check involve verifying your criminal history. However, a PCC is a document certifying the presence or absence of a criminal record, and it is commonly used for international purposes. On the other hand, a criminal record check may provide more detailed information about your criminal record, including arrests, convictions, and any other relevant information, and is often used for specific local purposes within a jurisdiction.
