Requesting a Police Certificate for Immigration Purposes

ACPO Criminal Records Office (ACRO) issues Police Certificates to people who want to emigrate to a number of countries including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Cayman Islands, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States of America.

The certificate details whether or not the applicant has a criminal record in the United Kingdom and is required as part of the visa process by the respective High Commission or Embassy.

Please note that the certificate may also include foreign criminal history information where it has been disclosed to the UK.

Please note that a Police Certificate request should be submitted directly to ACRO as these applications are not dealt with by South Wales Police.
