Thanks for the quick reply. I understand there has been changes to the tier 2 an certain field has to provide a police check to obtain a visa. The RCMP are the only ones who had provide this check by way of a fingerprint? Do you know or have you heard if your arrest and charge show up. My police check with the local police does not show a criminal record, but I am concerned that the the new rule by Home Office, will show my past mistakes? I am more leaning towards to relocating if this is going to follow me abroad.DBS check won't show any foreign criminal record. But if you have been in UK for less than 5 years, and you have lived in Canada before, you will probably be asked to furnish criminal record check from Canada. If it contains your absolute discharge, then it will be shown.
