Hi all,

 

I stayed in China for more than 1 year from 2009 to 2010 and now I need to obtain the No Criminal Police Certificate, do you know the procedure? Is there a way to apply online? or would the Embassy help on this? 

Thanks.

I am not sure what’s the procedure for foreigners.

but basically, you need to go to the local Notary office to obtain an application form, then you fill out that form and take it to the police office for them to fill out another part for you.

Then you should take the form back to the notary office again for the no criminal record report.

this is the only way.

no online application available and the China embassy won’t help...

Thanks. So that means I have to fly to China? How long should I stay there? If I stayed in 2 cities, Beijing and Shanghai, I should go to both cities to have it done? What documents would I need? Sorry for throwing all these questions at you but I don't have any information about the No Criminal Police Certificate at the moment.

And sorry Mod for not creating a separated topic. I thought it would better to discuss it in one topic since we have similar questions.

I think you should go to the city you lived for longer period. As the no criminal record should cover everything in the country not by city.

I am not too sure about foreigners...

you probably need to bring some evidence of staying in China such as your visa, your past employment letter or contract.

I suggest you call the police office and check. Or you may also contact the notary office to check.

Police Certificates for Foreigners Living in China


If you need a police certificate for any reason from having lived in China, it may be possible to obtain one from the local PSB Entry and Exit Bureau. You will need a Chinese work permit and a letter from your employer. Contact the PSB folks for the details of what they need.

You WILL NOT need one for the US visa process, unless you are notified otherwise.

Someone on VJ (apparently a Chinese woman) reported that "You should specifically ask for a "无犯罪记录“, Chinese companies and schools require it all the time so it should not be something new, and have it notarized at the local notary."  无犯罪记录  (Wú fànzuì jìlù) translates to "No criminal records", according to Google translate
