How to get a police certificate - Saint Lucia

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 certificate will be sent directly to the Canadian visa office in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
