Which Australian Federal Police certificate to order for your visa application?

You must order your Australian Federal Police (AFP) certificate only through the AFP website: https://afpnationalpolicechecks.converga.com.au/
Use Code 33 at Question 1 on the form and include details of all names you are or have been previously known by. This is very important, otherwise you will be required to order a new AFP certificate if any of your names” known by” is missing.
The Department of Home Affairs does not accept state- or territory-issued Australian police certificates.
The ones ordered through Australia Post, or through the commercial websites will not be accepted either.
Fingerprints are not required for the AFP check.
