Default Police Clearance Certificate

We are looking at completing our ITA and we need to complete our Police Clearance Certificate. We live in London and when you go onto the Metropolitan Police site they have two forms that you can complete. One is the Police National Computer form and the other is the Metropolitan Police Systems Form.

Does anyone out there know if we need to complete the two or whether we could just complete the Police National Computer form

Dear Nero
When we wanted our police forms we had to ring this number 020 7230 2958 and it was an answering machine, it goes through a long intro then asks you to leave your details. We received the forms back from them about 5 days later and once we had sent them off it took 41days for mine to arrive, and 47 for the wife.
On the actual police cert it gives the address as:

National Identification Service
Subject Access Office
Room 350
New Scotland Yard
Broadway
London SW1H 0BG
Tel 020 7230 2958
Fax 020 7230 2688
Hope this helps,

FYI our local Constabulary said complete one form which they sory out and they forward it to the Met for final checking - they only heve computers in London it seems!!
A tip if you don't want your ID to go off into the post (as we did when I found out my OH's DoB was incorrect on her NHS card!!), then go to a Police Station (if you can find one that is open), where the desk sgt. will check your passport or other ID and sign the form off - no need to lose that important passport.
Our sgt. also frightened my 4 yr old so that he behaved perfectly for the rest of the day!!!

HI there, I just received my completed form back from the Police. I only completed the National Computer form which is adequate for the visa application.
The details you receive back are just a list of any prosecution/convictions the Police may have on record (I am proud to say mine is clear) basically it is just a letter stating I have no criminal record but I have been assured by the New Zealand embassy that this is sufficient.
Hope this has helped you and good luck with your move. I will be going over in Nov 2006 so keep me informed of how you get on.
All the best
Steve

I'd suggest you call em fist to make sure they are open, and call the data protection dpt or log onto their website to get the forms downloaded and fill them in beforehand (if only to see what ID is required) - time is precious when you are emigrating..... good luck

We were lucky with the whole getting PR process anyway...went through so quickly!! Thats twice we've had the police ones done... we started the process a few years back but I got preggy and then the company OH works for got bought out... we forgot all about emigrating til we had an email saying the job offer was on again and did we want to come out here.

Don't forget they're only valid for 6 months, and medicals and chest x-rays for 3, but you send all to NZIS at the same time, so watch your timings!

I just phoned our local police station (hartlepool)and they gave me the number to the Middlesbrough branch who sent the forms to me. I sent them back with a cheque for £10. It went off to Scotland Yard and 35 days later I received the papers back all clear.
