Thanks for the response Raj. I have both the PCC from SSP Offices, won't that be ok. As on Express entry site they need PCC from the local police station.

One PCC from PSK will suffice.
Hi Raj,

Please help me to solve an issue.

I have 2 PCCs. 1 from my home country and other from United Arab Emirates (UAE)
1. From my birth to 2010 - I lived in my home country.
2. From 2010 to 2012 - I lived in UAE. (UAE Pcc does not show any duration of stay)
During these 2 years, I have visited my home country frequently (6 times, total stay around 4 months)
3. From Dec 2012 till date - Home country.

So When I asked my home country Police to include all these 6 entries and exits in the PCC (Because I was in my home country for this period), they said that there PCC format does not allow this many entries. And they mentioned the whole time (even the time I stayed in UAE) in their PCC.

So now I am really worried about this situation. Do you think it can create a problem? Or it is not a big issue?
Plus I am thinking of writing explanation letter regarding the situation. Is it Ok?

Yes, you have to get PCC from USA since you stayed above 6 months.

What's the process to get my PCC report from USA as now I live in India?
Its very simple and straight forward. Please refer this link

" You must provide a police certificate for every country, region or territory, other than Canada, where you lived for six months or more since you turned 18. A police certificate is a copy of your criminal record, or a document that confirms you do not have a criminal record.

Police certificates are different in each country and territory. They may be called police clearance certificates, good conduct certificates, judicial record extracts, etc. They are issued by police authorities or government departments. We use them to determine if a person is admissible to Canada.

Certain countries will not issue a police certificate or will not provide the certificate directly to you. If you cannot get one for this reason, please provide a letter of explanation.
We will tell you if you need a police certificate for Canada."

Experts, does it mean that i dont have to get the police certificate for Canada now?

I've received the ITA recently, and want to make sure i submit all the documents requested.

Please advise ! Smiley

This has been answered already on another thread, you do not need a PCC for Canada.

Hi guys,

Wanted your opinion on my PCC for an African country. My father's name is written in wrong order i.e. - Surname - Middle name - First name, where as it should have been written as Surname - First name - Middle name.

This happened due to different formats used to write names in both the country. Though all other details are correct.

What should I do as I need to submit my app?


Thanks

Just include a Letter of Explanation (LOE) stating this same error and it should work out fine, when you submit your e-APR.

If India is your home country, then kindly obtain one single PCC from your nearest Passport Seva Kendra (PSK).
PCC from PSK is not time or geographically bound.

Hi there,

Can somebody explain to me how to get an U.S Police Certificate, while I am in Canada?

I am having some difficulty to understand the steps of doing that, since each country has a different procedure.

Thanks.

please help.. am confused, i went to rcmp to get a Police Certificate,.
they gave me a form i filled it up, submitted, paid the fees, and they said ill have the document after a week.
I thought i have to provide finger prints as a requirement, but they never asked.

Is it ok to submit a non-finger print based police cleaRAnce? or am i in the wrong procedure here?
