Police Character Certificate Bahamas

Joane25Joane25 SingaporePosts: 3Member
Hello Sir or Madam,

I'm a Filipino Seaman who wants to work and settle in Australia and one of the visa requirement is a Police Character Certificate from the country where the ship that I've worked is registered. In my case it is registered in the Bahamas.

The problem is I'm having a hard time getting the certificate. I fill up the form online but the website is not working. I tried to send an email to the Royal Bahamas Police Force for inquiry but to no response. I actually have all the necessary requirements like notarized pages of passports and fingerprints.

I'm also a bit confused regarding the on the payment of the certificate. According to the website $10.00 US/Bahamian currency for foreign applicants plus mailing cost before the certificate can be issued. Cheques and international money orders must be made payable to the Bahamas Public Treasury. I went to Philpost and they said the are not selling International Money Order anymore.

Is there anyone here who is a Seaman too who have any experience with this Police Character Certificate in Bahamas? Can you help me or some tips please. Appreciate. Thank you!

    I submit mo yung mga requirements mo via Fedex. Imamail mo sya from Manila - Bahamas. Ilalakip mo yung mga requirements sa envelope nila then mag-aantay ka ng 2-3 weeks then ibabalik nila yung certificate sa harap ng bahay ninyo. Nasa almost 5k ang gastos ko para dito sa bahamas police certificate.

    Opo Sir Von ganun na nga po yung ginawa ko. Buti po nagmessage kayo at gumaan yung loob ko kasi mago-almost 2 weeks na wala pa din ako natatanggap. Tapos ine-email ko sila hindi din sila sumasagot. Medyo magastos nga po itong Bahamas Police Clearance. Pati po yung return mail para mabalik sa akin yung Certificate ako din po nagbayad e. Ganun po din ba sa inyo?
