Police Clearance in Australia

How do I apply for a police clearance certificate if I am in Australia?.

To get an Australian police certificate for Immigration purposes in Australia you must submit an Australian Federal Police National Police Check application form.

Use Code 33 at Question 1 on the form and include details of all names you have been known by.

From 15th December the AFP made some minor changes to the wording on the Police Check Certificates.

They used to show  ‘Complete Disclosure‘ on them, but following recent changes to the wording on the Certificates, they now show the purpose of the application.

In this case, it will be: ‘Immigration/Citizenship – Australia‘, as long as you selected select Category 33 on the police check application.
