Yeah actually I commented above before this comment that's exactly what I am afraid of..This is not quite correct. If the current country of residence is different from the home country, the PCC has to simply be issued after you last lived in that country.
- For the applicant’s current country of residence, the police certificate must have been issued no more than six months before the submission of the e-APR.
- For countries in which the applicant no longer resides, the police certificate must have been issued after the last time the applicant lived in that country.
- Police certificates are required up front and are mandatory for each country (except Canada) where an individual has lived for a total of six months or more. This instruction is for the purpose of the completeness check under section R10. However, it is always at an officer’s discretion to request a new or additional police certificate."
My real issue is that I cannot obtain the PCC via remote processing as my home country's embassy is closed in the country where I am residing ...so my only way to obtain it is if I am physically present @ my home country during a visit/ vacation
