How to get a police certificate – Israel
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.
Name of the document you need

Police certificate and IRCC requirements
You must provide a police certificate when you apply for permanent residence in Canada.
How to apply
If you live in Israel
You can apply for a police certificate at your nearest police station or online on the Israeli Police website (available only in Hebrew). If you apply through a designated representative, they must submit a specific power of attorney for this purpose, which does not need to be notarized.
The police certificate will be sent directly to the Embassy of Canada in Tel Aviv.
If you live in Jerusalem (East or West) or in the Golan Heights, you should apply for an Israeli police certificate.
If you live outside of Israel
You can apply for a police certificate at your nearest Israeli embassy or consulate, or online on the Israeli Police website (available only in Hebrew).
The police certificate will be sent directly to the Israeli embassy or consulate, who will then ask you to pick up the original document.
You may submit a certified copy of the original, along with any certified translations, electronically for the purposes of your application. Please keep your original copy, as we may request it during the processing of your application.
Police certificates handed directly to you by the Israeli Police continue to be unacceptable documents for immigration purposes.
