UK CRB/DBS check question

Travel Forums Asia UK CRB/DBS check question

Hey everyone
I plan to return to England this summer where I'll need to do a CRB/DBS check. I hear it can be hard to get if a person has been out of the UK for a while. Has anyone had a CRB/DBS check recently in the UK or does anyone know if I can maybe get a letter from the police in China to prove I don't have any criminal convictions here in China that might help my CRB/DBS check along.
Cheers

Hi,

Have you had a look at this...

GOV.UK

"One part ....has this to say

"Overseas applicants and UK applicants who lived abroad
Employers can ask applicants from overseas to get a criminal records check, or ‘Certificate of Good Character’, from their country of origin.

It may also be possible for employers to get such a check through the relevant embassy in the UK but the applicant must give their permission.

Processes for getting criminal records checks abroad vary between countries."

Don't see anything to match your situation, but nothing stopping you writing to them.
