Subject: Saudi Arabia - Police Clearance
  We just got our pre-approval for the Canadian Immigration. We have been asked to submit the police clearance from Saudi Arabia. We are given to understand that the Saudi government do not help in this regard. Any thoughts on how do we obtain the police clearance from saudi governemnt. Thanks ---- Uma

If you have applied through Buffalo RPC, then it is NOT YOUR SCOPE TO PROVIDE PCC. Buffalo RPC will inquire on your behalf.

If you have not applied through Buffalo RPC then you have to ask the directions from the particular CIC. As far as I know, CIC will inquire behalf of you.

Just my opinion.

Thanks a lot for your reply. We have applied thro´ Buffalo RPC and they have asked for Saudi Police Clearance. We contacted the Saudi Embassy at US, but were informed that they cannot help us in this regard.

Saudi Arabia... Police Clearance (in reply to: Saudi Arabia - Police Clearance)
Dear Anwer:
Uma´s message is over a year old.
I am currently going through the exact dilemma you are going through.

After my medical, I received a letter from Canadian Immigration requesting Saudi Police Certificate for my wife & I for the period we stayed in Saudi. We have left Saudi Arabia over 8 years ago and hence do not have a valid Saudi Residence Permit (Iqama).

I tried the following:
- Contact Saudi Embassy where I reside (Europe) and got the response that they have np precedence & can not help in this regard.
- Got someone to visit Saudi Authorities in Riyadh to obtain procedure... no luck there either
- Contacted Saudi Law Firms in both Riyadh & Jeddah for advise... no response yet.
- Surfed the web and found an interesting statement in CSIC website It is apparent that Saudi Police Certificates are not issued to people with expired Iqamas (Residence Permits). What confuses me is how come Candian Authorities requested the same then... I presume it must be an administrative procedure where a clerk goes through a checklist.

Pleae note if you still reside in Saudi Arabia you should be able to obtain Saudi Police Certificate.

Police Clearance Certificate in Saudi Arabia (in reply to: Saudi Arabia - Police Clearance)
I am working in Saudi Arabia for the last two years.
I have already applied for Canadian immigration. Now the Canadian High Commission asked me for police clearance certificate in KSA. In this regard I contacted police department. In reply they told me that they do not issue such type of certificate. So how can I get a police clearance certificate in KSA.
Thanks and regards.
