How to obtain a police certificate - Dominica

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 Commissioner will send your criminal record information directly to the Canadian visa office in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, after you have submitted a written request.

How and where do I obtain one?
