bago na pala address nila

Our new address is located at :

To get a certificate of good conduct and a criminal record check from the United Arab Emirates, you have to follow these steps:

1)A fingerprint form legalized by the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Ottawa***
2)A copy of your previous residence permit in the United Arab Emirates/copy of passport
3)4 colored passport size photographs

Then, you have to send all the required documents mentioned above to the Ministry of Interior (Police Department) in Dubai or Abu Dhabi.

The Address is:
Police Department ? Abu Dhabi
P.O.B. 398
Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.
Tel: 971-2-441 4666
Fax: 971-2-441 4938

Police Department ? Dubai
P.O. B. 4333
Tel: 971-4-398 1111
Fax: 971-4-398 1119

Before submitting the above mentioned document to the Police Department, you have to contact them to inquire about the fees (ex: money order should be made payable to?) and the courier company, etc?.

We suggest that you send the documents to a friend and your friend can obtain the certificate from the Police Department on your behalf so the processing time will be
faster than sending it directly by courier to the Police Department.

***How to get fingerprint form:
You have to go to any Police station in your area and request for fingerprint. Then send it to

Attention: Legalization of documents Section (JLAC).
Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade
125 Sussex Drive,
Ottawa, Ontario
K1A 0G2

for legalization and The fee is: Free of Charge

After the Department?s legalization, please forward the document to the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Ottawa for legalization along with money order of
CAD$50.00 payable to

Embassy of the United Arab Emirates

and prepaid return envelope.
The UAE Embassy?s address:

Attention: Consular section
125 Boteler Street
K1N 0A4

for any other info, you may contact them;
Tel. No. 613 565 7272 ext. 224

Address change for UAE Embassy (in reply to: UAE Police clearance)
With reference to the last thread, I wish to confirm the address of the UAE Embassy in Canada.

I have an email forwarded to me by the UAE embassy which provides the following address:

45 O´Conner Street, Suite 1800
Ottawa, Ontario

However I see in the thread a different address:

125 Boteler Street,
Ottawa, Ontario,

Which one is correct?

Also when you send the fingerprint form for legalization to JLAC, what other documents do you need to enclose, do I need to send the original fingerprint form and will I get it back. Do I need to attach a letter explaining what I require from them? How do I go about doing so?

Thanks and regards,
