You need a police clearance for every country you have lived in for 12 months or more in the last 10 years. You also need a police clearance if you have re visited that country again since the last time you left.
Additionally police clearances, have an expiry date, and they are all different. Some are 3 months, some 6 months, and some are 12 months, depending on the country of origin.
All countries have a different process, and obtaining a USA police clearance, or a Canadian police clearance, are among the most challenging. The reason for this, is that any country that requires fingerprints to complete the task require the applicant to supply them. This is difficult when you are in Australia. You are thus required to attend you local police station and commence this process. There can be a cost involved, and that can vary from station to station.
When you do the Australian police clearance, it is also important to select the right reason that you need the police clearance. You also need to make sure that you are requesting a full disclosure of your record.
