The ACPO Criminal Records Office (ACRO) have commenced a six month pilot scheme offering Police Certificates to those individuals who are required to have a police check in order to obtain a Visa for Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa or the United States of America. In such cases, there is no requirement for individuals to request a subject access check from their local police force. Those persons who require a visa to travel to non pilot countries should still request a subject access check via their local police force.
Please note that this Certificate is processed entirely by the ACPO Criminal Records Office (ACRO). All submissions and enquiries relating to this process should be directed to ACRO, who can be contacted through the following routes:
Telephone: 0845 6013999 (during their office opening hours of 8:30-16:30, Monday to Friday)
Address: ACRO, PO Box 481, Fareham, PO14 9FS:
