Hello guys,

Soon my partner and I will be eligible to apply for the visa 887.
Our only question/doubt is regarding the validity of police certificates.

According to the link below, we do not need a new police certificate if we have not left the country.
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/wha...rogram/skilled-visa-newsletters/november-2019

See the following topic on the page/link: "Penal clearance certificates – validity issues" (or the image below).

Attention to the last bullet point on the topic in specific.

- - -

Does this still stand or has this changed since November 2019?

Our visa has been issued in November 2019 and since then we have not left Australia.
Do we need to get new police certificate clearances from previous countries?
Has anyone applied with expired policed certificate clearances and was okay?

Thank you very much in advance. Cheers!

That is the logical thing, so I would think that is still true.

This is a weird / complicated topic because it is not very clear on the steps of the visa application.
Thanks for the answer though, we really appreciate it.

I don't think so.

We are thinking about including the link from the original post and image on our application.
This way would make it clear to the Case Officer ( CO ) why we provided "expired" certificates.

What do you think of it? Would you recommend doing that? Cheers!

Well you can do that, no harm. I would personally just upload the PC, and if for some reason CO asks for a new one, reply with that link.

There was a case of a CO request for new PCs of applicants in similar situation. They have had attached a letter with explanation after the CO contact that was taken into account. So attaching such letter to avoid confusion beforehand was suggested.
 
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
