Default Police checks ?


Hey Guys,

I am applying for my work visa - Canada and noticed I would need a police check for other contries I have live in since the age of 18 years ?
I at one stage working in Florida for a little over 6 months - here is the catch though ? I was on a South African passport when doing that - I have since got my British passport would this still apply- is it maybe overlooked - How strick are they on this subject ?

Many Thanks

Hi and welcome to BE :-)

I would say you'll need to get a police check for each country you stayed in for over 6 months. Don't give CIC any opportunity to reject your application.

You will need both a state police check and an FBI one.

Cheers

No, the OP only requires the FBI check, if CIC/CHC wants the State one they will ask,.
