How to obtain a police certificate - Mauritius

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 are a citizen of Mauritius, you must provide the original and a photocopy of:

  • your identity card
  • your birth certificate
  • your marriage certificate (if you are a woman)

If you are a foreign resident, you must provide the original and a photocopy of:

  • your passport
  • your proof of residency
  • any other additional document (e.g., an identity card) if available

No fee is required and no application form needs to be filled out. Only the documents mentioned above are required.

Apply to:

The Director of Public Prosecutions
2nd Floor
Renganaden Seeneevassen Building
Jules Koenig Street
Port Louis, Mauritius
