How to get police clearance certificate in Dubai online-Video Tutorial?

Few employers in Dubai off late have started  requesting Police Clearance Certificate in Dubai. This is done to hire an employee who does not have any criminal cases or proceedings lodged against them. I am not surprised though. I was asked by one of my previous employer’s to furnish a Dubai Police Clearance Certificate prior to applying for my residence visa. If you have planned to immigrate to Western Countries, you might also need to get this certificate.

The procedure is not complicated at all.

Here are the steps to get Dubai Police Clearance Certificate:

  1. You need to approach a typing centre and request them to type a request for Dubai Police Clearance Certificate in ARABIC. (Although the application comes in English, get them typed or written in Arabic). The fees I paid is AED 110/-. If the person at the counter in the Police Station fills up the form, well and good. Do take 2 current photographs with white background. Take Emirates ID if you have one. Also carry original Passport.
  2. Next you will need to visit the Dubai Police Head Quarters(DPHQ) near Al Mulla Plaza  where they will scan your fingerprints and run them through the database. If you have Emirates ID, you will skip this step.
  3. If you are cleared, All the Best! You will receive your clearance certificate within 2-3 working days.
  4. Timings to submit the application are from 7:30AM to 2:30PM.

The procedure would have change or might differ from station to station. But this was the procedure I followed.

        Thank you Deepak, but this is not for me. It is actually for a friend who lived in Dubai and needs to apply for police clearance certificate. She asked me to do it for her. I guess she can;t apply online if she is not currently resident. Tks

        You will need Emirates Id in order to apply only.
        Please call the Dubai Police call centre to find out.

    Hi Deepak,

    I have been in the UAE for over 9 years but my most recent visa is only 4 months old (change employment).

    Will that be an issue since the latest visa is less than 6 months old ? In cases like this, how can I overcome this online since I have to key in the latest visa issue date, and it will automatically detect that my visa is less than 6 months…..

    Thanks…

          Yes, there is a possibility to apply. I am not entirely sure. I will enquire and let you know.

    I managed to follow all the steps but couldn’t seem to go pass the summary page (to the next page to enter name, phone number and address)…. I pressed on the “Continue” button several times but it just would not take me further.

    I have tried several times and its still the same, I just could get pass that point….

    Any idea why ?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your excellent information. My wife needs the Good Conduct Cert. to move to Portugal with me from Dubai where we are living.
    I understand the online process but do not understand if or when she actually needs to attend a Police Station? She has Emirates ID. Is everything done online and delivery then arranged to our Residence? So where is the need to attend the Police Station or is this stipulated after completing the online process?

    Many thanks.

    Regards,

    Graham.

      If you are doing it online with Emirates ID, you are not required to visit the police station.
      The courier will be sent to the address mentioned by you.
      But I am not able to confirm about the online systems working or not working.

      But I suggest, online would be the best. Or enquire directly with UAE Consulate in Australia where he applied.

    I got a job offer in UAE. I am presently in India. Contract also signed (for 3 years).
    The employer says they will get my employment permit and visa through their appointed agent.
    The agent has informed me i should get UAE Police Certificate of Good Conduct by paying US $ 1280 (Police Clearance fees $990+Delivery Charge $290=US $1280) before applying for visa etc.
    They have sent a Proforma Invoice copy from Dubai Police Gen. H.Q.
    I am amazed such a high fees. Information on web says AED 210 fees. Is it a dubious offer to cheat me. Please advise

    Hi Deepak,

    I am based in Dubai with my wife..
    I need to apply for Dubai police clearance certificate for my wife as she has applied in some govt. organization.

    I have a couple of queries, if you can assist:
    1. Do my wife need to go personally to apply for the police clearance certificate or I can do it on her behalf by carrying her passport, emirates ID and other requested info at:
    http://www.dubai.ae/en/Lists/HowToGuide/DispForm.aspx?ID=30

    2. As I am also travelling to India for vacation, Can someone collect the certificate on my behalf by going to Dubai police office as it is mentioned on the website that it takes 48 to 72 hours to process.

    3. How good is the process of applying it online and obtaining the E-copy for the same?

    4. There are 2 different links for E-service for “police clearance certificate ” which one is the actual one if we apply online

I m bit confuse regarding charge for PCC in your video u mention it will cost around AED 225 ( including courier ) but in information page it is mentioned AED 110. is there any difference in cost applying online and on visit ? Because I reside in Dubai so it will be better for me to visit .Reply on this regard will be lot help for me and informative to others seeking PCC in UAE.

      Note that the charges are dynamic and are changed from time to time. You need update with latest information as per official channels. My video was shot a while back and may be the circumstances have changed. It is not necessary to visit police station if the applicant has finger print records with the Police. I guess online charges do include courier charges while if you visit in person and collect the certificate, these charges are not applicable.
