UAE Police Clearance Certificate (Currently not in UAE)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hopefully someone can throw light on this:

 

I have resided for 4 years as a student in the UAE (last year in 2012). I technically qualify for the requirement of getting a police certificate. But I don't reside in the UAE anymore. The reciprocity table ( https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Visa-Reciprocity-and-Civil-Documents-by-Country/UnitedArabEmirates.html ) mentions:

 

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

 

Does that fairly mean that I don't really need to travel to the UAE to get the certificate?

 

Also, just curious to know what "Post" means there.

Since these are so difficult to obtain, the requirement is usually waived.

 

I had a friend who was brought up in the UAE and he was required to obtain one (since he'd spent most of his life there). It is possible (I did it) but its difficult. Hopefully they will waive the requirement in your situation.

Post means embassy or consulate.

Most of the GCC countries do not provide police certificates after the resident leaves and the iqama is no longer valid.  The state department is aware of this.

Thanks for your help here! :) Hopefully they do provide the waiver. Because otherwise its pretty difficult to get it. Unless I just travel there.
