We cannot apply for this on your behalf, only you can apply for this. American citizens should apply for a local authority check, no need to be FBI check. British Citizens can apply from Disclosure Scotland. A criminal record check is valid for use if it is within 6 months of the date last issued. If your current criminal record check is older than 6 months you will need a new one.

You can either personally attend or use a third party agent (for British citizens we also have cooperated visa agent) to post your passport and papers to the embassy/consulate. The embassy/ consulate will keep your passport for 3-6 days. Once you collect your passport with your Z visa inside, you are ready to fly!
