How to obtain a police certificate - British Virgin Islands

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 Police Headquarters will send the police certificate directly to the Canadian visa office in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, after you have submitted a request.

How and where do I obtain one?

If you live in the British Virgin Islands

You should apply in person with a valid passport and a written request from the Canadian visa office, and pay the applicable fees at:

Police Headquarters
Road Town
Tortola, BVI
Telephone: 284-494-3822

If you live outside the British Virgin Islands

You may apply by mail, in person or someone may apply on your behalf. The police clearance will be mailed to you or given in person.

You must include:

  • certified copies of the first five pages of your passport
  • a full set of fingerprints taken by a recognized police authority
  • an addressed envelope to have the clearance mailed to you
  • the applicable fees
