Hi All ,

Any folks who have lodged 189 or 190 or 489 visas for Australia & have lived / living in Hong Kong ? How do you manage HKG PCC , can that be done without a CO contact.

As per the link below ,CO request letter is a must :
" A photocopy of a letter from the relevant Consulate / Immigration Authority / Government Authority, which contains his or her name and clearly indicates that the production of the Certificate is required;"

https://www.police.gov.hk/ppp_en/11_...ime.html#local

I am just wondering HK residents ,in present or past can't get a Direct Grant ever in this case?
Pls. suggest if anyone has been successful to get HKG PCC w/o a CO letter ever?

If the Police says so, then that'd be it I guess. I believe it was the same case with Singapore as well, though not sure of the current situation. Hard luck, I'd say.

Thanks @Dileep , pls. see the link - https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/contact-us/offices-and-locations/list

'Letter of referral: You must firstly lodge your visa application and then obtain a letter of referral requesting the certificate from the Department office. This letter must be submitted when applying to the Hong Kong authorities.'
Does that mean I can ask for Letter of referral from DHA even before a CO contact ? Does it makes sense to drop an email to DHA to try and get the letter..pls. advise your feedback.

If you need an official letter, I believe the local AHC can help.

Checked AHC hk website , they do referral letter but not for migration purposes.

So sending email makes sense or not ? @MysticRiver

In the past, I have seen people just printing out the requirement page from ImmiAccount or the email from CO (if any) asking for PCC. I am not sure what exactly HK police needs. If they need a formal letter, I would first call AHC and talk to them. They must receive such requests and can advise what is the correct way of doing that in HK.

@MysticRiver Yeah mate , I know the process of how that needs to be done in HK. Just that need a DHA referral letter beforehand , for HK police to process a PCC. So What I am trying to achieve was ways to get this letter beforehand.

So in summary , I called AHC HK and they clearly mentioned that HK PCC if required (not a must) , a letter would be issued by DHA and then only you can proceed. So a CO contact is inevitable. One can't do this part pro-actively no matter what. So this closes my query and all I can do is to wait !!!

@MysticRiver just one question: If PCC mention expiry as 6 months but DHA says that the validity of PCC is one year. Which date would be followed? 6 or 12 month? As in case of IELTS, DHA is following their mentioned dates (3 years) despite that the IELTS result is having 2 year validity

Did you managed to receive letter from DHA/CO for HK PCC? I also need to get PCC from HK and please advise how long will take for CO/DHA to issue letter for PCC.

How long it took to get a CO assinged in your case?

One of the requirement in the procedure to obtain a PCC is to get the finger impressions authenticated by a law enforcement agent who will sign,stamp and date it.Could anyone from India share an insight how did they go about gettting finger prints authenticated and did they use a plain paper for the finger impressions or a specific form?
