Getting Saudi Police Clearance for former residents of Saudi Arabia(USA &CANADA)

Discussion in 'Skilled Worker / Professional Immigration' started by professional 1, Jun 29, 2009.

  1. oh i heard CIC's not anymore asking for PCC from those past legal residents of Saudi.!It really shocked me that there were some of you still being required to submit one.If that's the case i'd better start searching where is the saudi embassy here in the Philippines. ???
     
  2. Hi Vincent,

    Thank you for your valuable post. I am in the process of my Australian immigration and I, too am in the need for PCC from Saudi Arabia.
    I had a query which I hope you would kindly reply to. Has the CHC accepted the Saudi PCC (Helpline group document) that you submitted. Is the "Helpline Saudi PCC" the same kind of document one gets if we apply through the Saudi embassy in India. I just want to be doubly sure that the Helpline document would be accepted as the proper PCC by the Australian immigration authorities.

    Many thanks
    Leena

  5. Theone, please read the instructions on the CIC website again - If you CAN go to KSA to get it, there are instrcutions on how to get the letter:
    http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/security/police-cert/mid-east/saudi-arabia.asp

    "For applications being processed at any other office, request letters may be obtained by e‑mail: riyadh.visa @ international.gc.ca or fax: 966-1-488-9657. Please include the file number, the office where you applied and your mailing address. "
     
  6. i think Saudi PCC will be one of my future problem to face. Going to KSA to get PCC? it's kinda impossible i think. They'll not allow you to step in their country just for the reason of getting a PCC. or it will just cost you a lot of money to apply for a tourist visa or visit visa. is there any other way? or is there any case that a Saudi PCC was waived? :'(
     
  7. Hello leena,

    I believe the document from the "helpline group" should suffice. "PCC" is a document which all countries should accept.


    As "jes_ON" mentioned, i had tried getting it from there but it failed. The email address "riyadh.visa @ international.gc.ca" is in Canada. They directed me to Saudi consulate in India. I emailed Saudi consulate in India and they asked me to contact Indian consulate in Saudi. Finally Indian consulate in India replied to me saying they can process PCC only for Indians which is absolutely reasonable. But however, if you can manage to get the PCC from Saudi consulate in India, then nothing like it. No need to shell out money.

    I had to initially get my finger prints attested by the local police ( In my case Bangalore CID section). This doc along with iqama, passport copies and Photos of mine i gave it to the agency. The agency gave back the fingerprint document with arabic seals on it. I believe these seals were the police clearance seals. This document was attached with a translation of the seals. If you are of interest to see it, plz mail me at vincent_varghese22@yahoo.com i have the scan of the doc with me.


    Cheers
    Vincent
     
  8. Hello leena

    missed answer to your questions.

    yes, the CHC has accepted the PCC i presented.

    I think this doc must suffice your PCC requirement for Australia also.

    The helpline PCC is nothing but the same finger print paper that we initially give the agency but with arabic seals on it. Only extra paper is a translation of these seals. This translation is done by recognized translators.

    cheers

  9. Yes, they do waive the PCC. Just submit a request letter and justify your request.
     
  10. If a person is out of Saudi or has worked in the Kingdom years back it is difficult to obtain a PCC as Saudi issues Pcc to only current resident stationed there.
    In my case i worked in Saudi a decade ago and I wrote a letter to CHC abt it and send across all my passport entry /exit , but i had cancelled and left that job. They never asked me a PCC from Saudi
     
  11. what was ur office Shibuya???? and when was ur case processed ??

    cuz I worked in Saudia 7 years ago and never went back . and they still insist to provide Saudi Police Certificate in Warsaw Office.
     
  12. This is very easy process if you are in Saudi Arabia, First get request letter Arabic from Canada Embassy Riyadh ( Saudi police need request letter from
    Canada embassy Arabic). You should send an email to them ( CIC web site Saudi embassy email address there ) with file number, then they send back replay
    where u can pickup Arabic request letter, go to Ministry of Exterior Saudi ( Near Nasriya police station after the Salahia Computer market ), pay 30SR fee
    stamp the Arabic Embassy paper, then go to Deera police station ( fingure print section behind fire station) give the Arabic Embassy paper to them , they
    file the paper and told u take fingure print etc ( 2M job) and go and collect PCC after two days, this is nothing else one thick paper with photos and some stamps, translate it and send to Embassy, if you are outside Saudi better come for visit visa for 10 days , bring your old Iqama and old passport do the job and go , agents will take lot of money and some time not possible
