How to obtain a police certificate - Guyana

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.

How and where do I obtain one?

If you live in Guyana
You should apply to the Georgetown Clearance Office, unless you are from New Amsterdam, then you must submit your application locally. For the application, you must submit:

  • three photographs
  • the processing fee
  • a right thumbprint taken at the time of application

Submit your application to:

Georgetown Clearance Office
Eve Leary Kingston
Georgetown, Guyana
Telephone: 592-226-9834

If you live outside Guyana
You should contact a Guyana high commission or embassy or apply to the address above.
