Getting a police clearance from Dubai, UAE

11 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

My husband lived and worked in Dubai for a while (a few years ago), and I told him he will need to get a police clearance from there since he lived there after the age of 16.

He is now living in Jordan so he can't really go to the police in person in Dubai to get his document.

Does anyone know the best way to handle this? It SHOULDN'T be complicated (ha ha), but I'm wondering if they will be cooperative since he needs to do this from a distance. (And he hasn't tried calling them directly yet, but I'm encouraging him to try that first.)

I also found a pretty detailed answer on Yahoo with a list of what documents to submit and what to do. If anyone out there has RECENT experience getting a police clearance from Dubai, maybe you can send a little info this way.

Thanks!!!

MY WIFE HAVE TO GO BACK TO DUBAI TO GET HER CLEARANCE BUT SHE IS VISITING HER BROTHER ANYWAY. TO GET A PCC YOU HAVE TO BE IN PERSON... GOODLUCK I COULD BE WRONG! MAYBE HE KNOWS SOMEONE FROM THE PAST THERE THAT CAN HELP HIM.
