Police Certificate in Egypt

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this question is repetitive, but I can not find a clear answer in 'search'.

My husband had his police, military service, and birth certificate all translated as we've read many times it's better to be safe than sorry.

But what I can not find a clear answer on is if the police certificate needs any type of authorization/stamps from Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Ministry of Interior. All I can find is that all documents should be translated, but no mention about any additional stamps/authorization.

Please any Egyptian let me know if it is truly necessary or a must to have the Ministry of Foreign Affairs/ Ministry of Interior to stamp the police certificate.

Thanks.

I did get it stamped from Ministry of foreign affairs, but honestly I think it doesn't hurt to do it as it just 11 pounds and you get it in few minutes done. No stamp of Ministry of internal affairs as he will get it stamped from them already. Good luck. We did it with birth certificate too, with army certificate no.. Good luck

To send your spouse's police certificate, there are two tips must be done before sending it,

1.your spouse must go firstly with his police certificate after getting it from the nearest police office to a place called( مديرية الأمن) to get a signature on the back of the certificate.

I am from ALEXANDRIA, so I went to( مديرية أمن الأسكندرية),as I asked the agency in the police station and he guided me,

So you must ask the agency in the police station where can you do the step 1?

The important thing is to know that is a step before going to the ministry of foreign affairs office.

With out completing step one, you will not be able to do step 2, and I am 10000000 % sure that the agency in the ministry of foreign affairs office will refuse to give you the stamp that regards the ministry of foreign affairs.

2. After getting the police certificate signed from(مديرية الأمن), take it to the ministry of foreign affairs office with 11L.E.

That's all.

I did the new electronic police certificate at dokki police station, a driver it didn't need another stamp from higher police station in giza, I went directly to stamp it from ministry of foreign affairs.. Maybe you did the old one which needed stamp from مديرية الأمن.

Good luck to you all.

Thanks Ahmed & Luna and Theossmanfamily for your replies.

My husband had the electronic police certificate done at Dokki as well.

The police officer told him he could go directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to get it stamped. The police officer had asked my husband where he was traveling to and he told him the US. The police officer then told him that it actually wasn't necessary to have this stamp from foreign affairs as it's usually done only for those traveling to other Arab/Gulf countries :huh: ; which is why we were confused on whether he gets it or not.

He's going to go ahead and go to foreign affairs anyways just in case and get it stamped today if they are open ISA.

And they never asked for it at the NVC or Embassy? Well that's good. We went ahead and had all documents translated and his police cert & birth cert stamped. Since it seems there isn't much consistency with what really should must be done and what isn't, we just went ahead and did it anyways; too many conflicting situations where some got check-listed and some didn't. ;)

It is better to go there very well prepared just in case. Mas be the deal with each case differently.
