Default Police Certificates

Hey Peeps,

Sorry I've not been around for a while.

After receiving our ITA back in November we're now just about to submit it. We're waiting on my Chest X-Ray results and a copy of my wife's birth certificate to arrive. Both of which should happen before the end of this week.

It just occurred to me though that NZ Immigration request police certificates from any country that you have lived in for more than 12 months.

We've got our UK certificates as you might expect.... now, this may be a stupid question, but as we've now been in NZ since September 2009 (more than 12 months), do we also need to get NZ police certificates?

Hey - thanks!

After posting my msg above I carried on looking on the Immigration website.... couldn't see much in the way of confirmation as to whether we needed to or not, then spotted the last sentence on this page of their site: http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migra...cate/mn/nz.htm

Specific procedure for New Zealand
Immigration New Zealand will apply for a certificate on your behalf.
Now... is this conclusive? Anyone have any experience of having been in New Zealand for more than 12 months and NOT having had to get an NZ Police Certificate?

Umm. As far as I am aware per the NZIS website you don't need to apply to the local courthouse jmcnelson.

As far as I am aware NZIS will apply for the NZ police certificate on your behalf.

Please check out this link and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Oh! and welcome to this wee NZ forum.
