How can you obtain a Police Clearance to prove that you are of good character?
You need to demonstrate that you are of good character.
To prove that you have no criminal record or convictions you have to submit police records with most visa applications.
You will need to obtain police certificates from your country of citizenship and all countries you have lived in over the past years.
We can let you know how you can apply for your police certificates.
Please note: Police records are only valid for a limited time. If they are older than 6 months at the time of submission, Immigration New Zealand will not accept them as evidence for meeting the character requirements.
