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!
