Q: How do I get a UK criminal background check in China ??

Hi all, I have just been asked to produce a basic criminal background check in order to apply for a new work visa, this is acceptable as I do not have a criminal record.

The problem is getting one, I have looked at many agencies and websites and all of them including the disclosurescotland.co.uk which is the authority on these matters , and so far I am completely confused.

They are asking for utility bills from a UK address, or bank statements from a UK bank from the last 3 months.

I have been in China for 5 years since my last stay in The UK.

Has anyone been able to get a basic check with the new regulations, without having to go back to UK and wait for 2-3 weeks ?

This is driving me around in circles as I do not have a criminal record , my visa will expire this month and my future employer said they need it before they can continue the application for visa, then I will certainly have to go to UK to pick up my work visa (long story).

What I wish to do is this:

Apply for a check, have it sent here to my new employer.

In the meantime head back to UK and wait out the application before picking up from Chinese embassy in London.

head back to China, legally .

Can anyone advise me on how they got a check from the UK from within China ,please?

Go talk to your embassy they should be able to help you with some of these legal battles...or at least point you in the right direction. I just pointed you in the right direction now it's up for you to go and do the rest. I'm not from the UK rather the US so I don't have connections like that.

Jason, see my post on your other thread. PM me if you are unsure and need more info. Even if you apply now it will probably take the best part of 3 weeks before it will get to you China.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
