How to get police clearance in Dubai?

A police clearance certificate (PCC) verifies your good behavior. It is open to candidates who are already living in the UAE as well as others who are no longer residing there. Here is how to apply and what documents are needed.

The following paperwork is required:

  • A legitimate Emirates ID card
  • A letter from the beneficiary confirming that he or she has no outstanding criminal convictions.
  • A recent passport-size picture
  • A copy of the applicant’s passport

You can apply for the credential online at the Ministry of Interior’s website and/or through their mobile app MOI UAE, which is available on iTunes and Google Play. You may also go to one of the MOI’s service centers and get the document completed after filling out the application form and paying the applicable fees with electronic payment cards.
