How to obtain a police certificate - Antigua and Barbuda

If you need to give your fingerprints for a police certificate, this isn’t the same as giving your biometrics (fingerprints and photo) for an application.

Do I need to provide a police certificate when applying for permanent residence?
Yes. The Commissioner of Police will send the police certificate directly to the Canadian visa office in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, after you have submitted a written request.

How or where do I obtain one?

If you live in Antigua and Barbuda
You should present your valid passport and applicable fees to:

Criminal Records Office
Police Headquarters
American Road
St. Johns, Antigua
Telephone: 268-462-0125 (local calls)
