    Default Police Certificate?

    Hi all,

    Can someone please help me out. Is a police certificate from home country mandatory for work permit application? I have only been in NZ for 2 weeks. I read somewhere that it is only mandatory if I have lived here for more than 12 months. Please advise. Thank you

    Hi Roshini,

    Is a police certificate from home country mandatory for work permit application?
    It depends on the duration of your stay in NZ.

    I read somewhere that it is only mandatory if I have lived here for more than 12 months.
    If you intend to stay longer than 24 months (including time since your arrival).

    See here.

    Hi Roshini,
    If you are currently living in a country outside of country of citizenship (passport holder) even if the stay is less than 12 months, then also Police certificate are required from both countries. Iam not sure on workpermit case, but for ITA they have mentioned in the ITA form for me to get from India as well as from Indian embassy from other country as well.

    If you have already back to Home country and period of stay was less than 12 months than I think, police certificate from home country is only required and not from NZ.

    Just ask and make sure for yourself by putting a query or email to NZ branch office of your home country.


    Cheers

    To back up what Till has said, it says here that you only need to submit a police certificate if you are going to be in NZ for 24 months or more.

    We carry out character checks on everyone 17 years or over included in residence applications or applying for temporary entry for 24 months or longer. We may also undertake a character check on anyone else that we consider may not meet our character requirements.
