They did come in and look around, so maybe they did look in every room. I didn't really notice. They did want to see my passport and 90-day report. They took a photo of themselves standing with me on my porch.

 

They were friendly and not threatening. I asked them why they were doing this, and they said they had to visit every long-term visa holder in their territory once a year. I told them I'd live here for over 15 years, and this was the first visit I've had. They just looked at each other and smiled.

Easy-peasy... 😉

No, he was happy to sit at our dining table in the main room.  He did not ask for a tour of the house.  Most people don't even get that far and are greeted in an outdoor area.

Yesterday was visited by two men, not in uniform but t shirts and unmarked truck.

I would prefer such a visit, less gossiping from the neighbours.

I believe they only go into the lounge area and sometimes not even that far.


If you are really concerned I suggest you buy a rug........... and some duct tape !!

There was one other occasion when we received a visit by three policemen intent on selling us some tickets to a boxing match.  It was something they were doing ostensibly to raise money for their precinct.  The tickets were not cheap but they thought a foreigner would love the idea.  My wife and I would never pay money to see people beat each other up, so we politely said no without actually saying no.  We did call the station they said they were from to check if they were genuine officers or not.  It was all a bit strange but did checkout as real.

Nope they stopped at the locked gate with the barking dogs on our side of the gate.

When my wife applied for residency in Australia many years ago we were told by the the lawyer handling the application that it wasn’t unusual for the Australian Immigration to make unannounced visits in order to ascertain that the application was genuine.

I don’t know why people feel unsettled by such events unless of course there is something to hide.

If a policeman tried to enter my home in the UK without a warrant he would be denied entry.

I would step outside and close the door behind me before talking to him.

Who knows if they're looking for an opportunity to plant drugs?
