How to get a police certificate – Oman

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

Clearance Certificate

Police certificate and IRCC requirements

IRCC will send you a letter requesting a clearance certificate after you send your Application for Permanent Residence. You must bring that letter when you apply for a Police Certificate.

How to apply

You can:

  1. Apply in person at the Director of Criminal Investigations or ask a representative (a friend, relative or colleague) in Oman, with a power of attorney, to apply on your behalf
  2. Send your request through any Omani Embassy or Consulate abroad

Special considerations

Police certificates are not available to Omani citizens who are married to foreigners.
