Hi Friends,
What is the procedure to get police clearance certificate from Khobar . I am a Pakistani National.

How long is the validity of PCC?

And is it required after we receive ITA? Can we start the process before ITA?
This is the procedure what I followed:

1. Send an email to Canada embassy in UAE with your details
2.They will send you a form
3.Take this form to MOFA and get stamp
4.Take this form to Police Directorate in Khobar or Dammam with two recent photos
5.They will take your fingerprints and issue the letter within two weeks.
6.Get translated from an authorized translator
7.It will be valid for six months

Hope this will help

please advise RE: PCC. I am a Saudi national and I received ITA in the last draw. How can I get the PCC from the Saudi officials for the immigration purpose? Saudis are not allowed to seek dual PR.

But in Saudi, to get PCC I must provide a letter showing the agency (ie. CIC) and reasons for requesting PCC. I feel overwhelmed and confused because it's not possible to take the CIC letter to Saudi officials they'll find out and I can get in trouble as

Saudi law prohibits seeking PR of another country.

any suggestions or conusltant in Saudi????????????????????

Has anyone gotten passport request (PPR) from Abu Dhabi Visa Office (ADVO)? If so, did you submit your passports in Saudi (Riyadh/Jeddah/Khobar) to the VAC or did you courier them to ADVO?

I am asking for a recent update because it seems it worked in the past (2013-2015), i.e. submitting to Saudi VAC or Canadian embassy rather than courier to ADVO, but not sure about these days.

Anyone with past and/or recent experience who can chime in would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi, first of all you do not need to double post the exact same post. Secondly, have you been requested for PCC? If not, then don't worry about it. Also, IF you are requested for the PCC, then you may explain exactly what you have written. CIC are human after all. Maybe you can contact the Canadian embassy here in Riyadh for more information as I am sure they have come across this kind of situation before. Good luck.

I too think Canadian Embassy is Riyadh should be able to guide you. Better convey the reson to CIC as you stayed in this post and seek their help. You may be deferred to submit PCC; who knows!!

Just curious, has anyone submitted their passports to VFS Saudi recently (within the past month or so)? If so, how long has it been or how long did it take from passport submission to receiving them.

Document issued by Pakistan Embassy in Abu Dhabi got accepted, as I got PPR.

Hello, what do you mean document issused by the Embassy got accepted? Does this mean if I also fail t get it from Pakistan, I can ask the Pakistani Embassy in Egypt to issue a similar document? I am Egyptian and I used to live in Pakistan before.

Hello Everyone!

Need expert advice on Saudi PCC. The date of birth on my Saudi PCC is not the same as my passport i.e. the year matches but day/month do not match. Will it be a problem? People who have gone through with similar situation please respond.

Thanks
