Has anyone had to provide FBI clearance for a spouse visa before? I had the state of NY police clearance but apparently this isn't enough. Has anyone done this before?
Thanks Amaslam, we are in Melbourne and the central police dept only does fingerprints for the city, the first appointment they can give me is the 19th of November! Does anyone know where in Melbourne I might be able to get fingerprints other than the police?
I just went to my closest police station (just walked in), paid the fee ($40/set of fingerprints) and they did it then and there. Maybe MEL has different rules (I'm in SYD).
just two more quick questions. Did you get two sets of prints - ink and latent? And did you have to organise return postage - if so how? The Australian Goverment pages say you need to organise return post but doesn't tell you how and the FBI page mentions nothing about postage. I am confused!
The cost for the penal clearance is $18....
hi all, I have a similar question. I'm still in the US, going for a 457 (with spouse). Neither of us have any criminal history whatsoever, so is it possible that a criminal history clearance is not required? I've read some conflicting information, even on the Immigration website it says not to get this until it is asked for (not at time of application).
