Police Clearance Certificate

Canada Immigration Forum (discussion group)

Subject: Police Clearance Certificate
I am an Indian. I left India five years ago. I lived for one year and eight months in UK. Then, for the past three years I have been living in Germany.

Now, I am planning to migrate to CANADA. As part of supportive documentation, I need to submit the "Police Clearance Certificates" from all the three countries.

Now, my question is:
Where do I have to apply to get these three PC certificates from different representative bodies of the relevant countries?
(I.e. who issues the certificates, whom exactly I have to contact and what is the procedure for getting?)

Thanks in advance for your information and suggestions.

To obtain a Police Certificate in the UK, go to your local police station and request a form called "Subject Access". Send send this with the ten pounds fee to the Data Protection Officer of the police force for the area you are resident in. This form is then sent by the police to Scotland Yard and the results are supplied to the individual requesting them within a statutory 40 day time limit. If you´re waiting for your certificate try 0171-230-3751 to see what state it´s at.

The address of the Subject Access Office is:

Indian Citizens must apply for a ?Police Clearance Certificate? in person from the district Passport Office.

Dear Rana,
First of all Thank you for the information!

Secondly the information you gave about geeting the certificate in UK is correct but in case of Germany and India it is incorrect. Just yesterday I have confirmed and found all the correct addresses and procedures about getting the certificate from the said three countries.

In Germany:
Just contact the local "meldebeh?rde" (Muncipal council) and pay 13 Euro. It takes around three weeks.

In India:
There are two options:
1. You can contact the local police station by telephone, fax or in person and ask for the same.
2. In case of NRI(Non-resident Indian), contact the local Indian consulate. There is a fee and it takes around four weeks.

In UK: what you said is partially correct!
Only people live in London metropolitan area have to go to the address given by you. All the rest have to contact the local police station, where they were/are residing.

Anyway thanks again
