    Default PR application police cert

    Hi there. I was just wondering if anyone knows whether a new police certificate should be submitted with a PR application or if Immigration NZ can use the one submitted previously in another application less than 6 months ago? The cert hasnt expired yet but the original is still with Immigration.

    Thanks

    I believe you can use the same one if it is still current when the PR application goes in.

    Just one more thing, the previous application was for work permit. I called immigration regarding it and they said doesnt matter the police cert is current and they have it, a new PR application needs all documents separately. Help?

    Hmmm, in that case things have changed. It always used to be that medical and police certificates that were still current could be used for other visa applications. I can't see anything that confirms whether you can use your existing certificate or not. It should still be in their system, so I don't see what the problem is. It wouldn't be the first time INZ has given conflicting information, so don't take the first answer as gospel. Has anyone else been in this position?

    I could reuse the police certification for my PR. The same as I used for my work permit. The medical was expired a few days and I had to do them again in NZ.
    Good luck
