Singapore Police Clearance

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here knows how to get a police clearance from Singapore?

You really need to update your profile and create a timeline so everyone will be able to help you better. Not knowing your location, or home country of you fiance(e), it's more difficult to answer your questions.

But, assuming you're not a citizen of Singapore, please read the following.

The Singapore Police Force has cease issuing the Certificate of No Criminal Conviction (CNCC) to non-Singapore Citizens with effect from 18 Oct 2010.

Should you require further assistance or clarification, please contact the Certificate of No Criminal Conviction (CNCC)/Records Office at telephone numbers (+65) 64358409 or (+65) 64358410 between 8.30am and 5.30pm (local time) from Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).

Here's the link: Singapore CNCC Notification

The embassy where she will interview should know this. I requested an email response from the SPF and they responded with a letter saying they did not issue these anymore. My wife took this to her interview, and when asked for her Police Clearance, she told them what the letter said, and they said it was OK, they knew this already. I think they just want to know that you tried.

As of recently the US embassy has been requiring applicants to get the Certificate of Clearance (COC) from Singapore not the CNCC.

You will need a letter stating that the US embassy is requiring you to get the COC.

Here is the website detailing the information.

You can use the search feature on this site and type in "Singapore Police Clearance" and you should get quite a few recent threads on the subject matter. Pay attention to the dates of the postings and you should get the correct information.

Thanks for the update beejay, sorry to rose_ella if I caused any stress. It's funny though, just had 2 friends go through the interview at USEM and neither were required to have the COC/CNCC from Singapore. They simply stated the policy and showed the info from SPF website that they no longer issued. Sounds like your typical USEM problem though, some officers say one thing and require this and others say something else.

This the SPF's reply to my email, I mentioned about my US visa application but they said Australia in this.

Dear Ms.........

The Government Policy regarding ceasing issuing the Certificate of Clearance (COC) for non-Singapore Citizens remains the same since 18 October 2010.

However, in instances where the Migration Authorities have rejected the Statutory Declaration of an applicant and provided the applicant with an official letter bearing his/her name and file reference number from Migration Authorities requesting for a police clearance from Singapore as they do not accept the Statutory Declaration, there is an option.

The applicant may submit an appeal to our HEAD CRIMINAL RECORDS, CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION DEPARTMENT. The appeal will be on a case by case basis.

Please note that the following need to be submitted along with your appeal.

The appeal to issue a police clearance to non citizens as the Australian Authorities do not accept the Statutory Declaration will be taken into consideration by the HEAD OFFICER CRIMINAL RECORDS. If your appeal is successful, the other requirements will be needed to complete the application for the police clearance.

Firstly,

1 Complete the attached appeal form

2 Submit a photocopy of your present valid passport and Identification card.

3 Photocopy of documentary proof to establish your period of stay in Singapore for a continuous period of six months or more. (E.g. work permit identification card, testimonial letter from school or employer, arrival & departure endorsement in passport etc). Please verify and declare for your period of stay in Singapore.

4 An official letter from the Migration Department that a police clearance is required bearing your file case number with an assigned case officer.

Secondly,

If the appeal is successful, you will be notified via this email and the following documents need to be sent to complete the application:

1 Full set of fingerprint impressions to be taken by the local police in your country of residence.

2 Two recent passport size photographs

3 A payment of $50/- SGD to be made payable to ‘HEAD CRIMINAL RECORDS CID’ via bank draft or Singapore Bank cheque.

4 Completed application form.

If you are mailing your application, its best to send all of the two together in one package so that once the appeal is approved, we can immediately commence the processing of the clearance. Or, you may submit the appeal via email and within 10 working days check the outcome should your appeal is successful, we will advised you to mail all of the second requirements to us. Attached herewith an appeal application and COC application form for Non-Singapore Citizens.
