How to obtain a police certificate — Benin

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. However, police certificates are only available to applicants born in Benin.

How and where do I obtain one?
Benin nationals should apply for an Extrait de casier judiciaire from the Tribunal of their city of birth.
