The State Dpt website provides some information about that.

Police Records

Available, only if applicant is physically present in the UAE.

Police certificates may be obtained by any person, regardless of nationality, by personally appearing at the Central Police Headquarters located in the emirate of residence or former residence. When appearing to request a police certificate, the applicant should provide recent photographs, a letter from the requesting authority, the date of residence in the emirate, and their passport.

Not available by mail. Post recommends that consular officers waive the general requirement to obtain police certificates unless the applicant lives in the UAE.

Hi you can do one of two things:

1. If you have a smart phone download the Ministry of Interiors app

- search for UAE - MOI in your app store

- Select Criminal Status under the Police tab

- Login/Register and apply for one (translated to English)

- Mine was delivered 2 days later via Empost courier

2. Go to either a police station which issues these or a MOI service centre

- so I initially went to the MOI service centre located in Marina Mall (note this doesn't open until 3pm and is only open until 7pm)

- You pay the fee (show your Emirates ID) and are given a receipt to collect the certificate 24 hours later from a police station

- The only police station I know that does this service for sure is Al Shabiya Police Station (located on Al Sada near the Dusit hotel) - I originally went to Khalifa City A police station and the officer muttered Al Shabiya and maybe Yas Island

- It looks like you can do the entire process at Al Shabiya (cutting out the Marina Mall visit) but it was chaos, given I had a receipt the officer took it and with in 30 seconds I had my certificate

- This was in Arabic so I had to take it to be translated etc.

I did both ways as I was unsure the app would work in time, if I was to do it again I would suggest the app as the certificate came in 2 days fully translated. HTH - let me know if you need anymore information!

Thanks! That clears it up for me. I will go the MOI route, seems like it may be fairly straight forward.
