Get police clearance certificate in Dubai(New Video Tutorial)

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.

    Hi Deepak,

    I need to take police clearance certificate for me and my wife to visit USA on immigrant visa. Do my wife needs to visit Police station as well or not. 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.

      If your company requires police clearance to issue the visa then you should follow the rule.

      In this matter you need to clear your outstanding amount. If the bank has already filed a case against you then it will be a problem.

      This depends on their procedure. If they do not have the finger print record, they may want to run it through their system…just in case!
