Police Clearance Certificate Attestation

What is a Police Clearance Certificate?

A Police Clearance Certificate in Dubai, or Dubai PCC, is issued by police departments across the UAE to certify an individual’s criminal record within the Emirates. Also known as a “Good Conduct Certificate,” these police clearance certificates verify that the person has no criminal convictions in Dubai or other emirates. In February 2018, the UAE government mandated that job applicants must provide a clearance certificate from their localities. This requirement applies whether you are a resident of Dubai or other regions.
