I was wondering if any other UK citizens out there who have successfully applied for Permanent Residency (PR) or are in the process of applying.
I am a bit confused about the Clean Criminal Record Certificate bit. How do I apply for said document in the UK?
I contacted my local police office and got a form for “access to info held on police computers”–is this correct?
I notice that there is a big message on the front of the form saying that:
“UK police forces DO NOT issue documents variously described as “certificates of good conduct” or “Police clearance certificates”. Nor do they provide evidence of good character.”
I also contacted the BTCO, but they were a bit clueless–suggested contacting the “National Identification Centre” in London (part of the Metropolitan police)–but the information they provide is via the same “access to info held on police computers” form, so basically the same.
Anyway, is this the correct approach–to fill in the form I have been sent for info on police computers regarding myself? Or am I barking up the wrong tree altogether?
Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
