Q: How can get Police Clearance Certificate (Criminal Record Clearance) in China?

I live in Qingdao, Shandong Province under work permit. I need to obtain Police Clearance Certificate and send it out to my lawyer for the purpose of immigration. However, its been almost 2 months and I could not find any solution for this issue. I went to local PSB, Distract PSB and also I went to the Canadian Consulate General in Shanghai all of these could not help.

 

Please let me know if you have been facing such problem before and how did you solve it .

 

 

Thanks

As I havr mentioned in the past on some other thread......it is easy.

What you do is simply go to the police station where you are registered and aske for a criminal history report. It is free and takes about 2 or 3 days. Note: it is not a nationwide or even provincewide report. Apparently networking databases hasn't occured to anyone. This report is acceptable for immigration matters in canada and Australia. I can't attest with personal knowledge for other countries.

Good luck.

You could ask for info about certificate at SAFEA (Foreign Expert Bureau), same office which issued your FEC.

 

Enter 'safea' in search above for address and contact no. of Provincial headquarters and dial them.

 

Your Embassy couldn't help you with advice? I doubt that! They sure told you either 'you can't get it' or 'where can you get it'! That's why they are there!

Thanks the for comments.

 

@iWolf,: I tried PSB number of times, they didnt even know about the police clearance certificate, and if there is such thing they will not issue that since I am not Chinese.

 

Regarding embassy advise. they told me they can not help and the embassy is not responsible for this such things !!!!!! 

 

NOTE: As part of my immigration application, I had to get the same certificate from the Russian embassy, in my surprise they were very helpful and they issued the certificate in less then week. 

 

@icnif77: I did not try this one, and I will soon.

 

Thanks again for talking time

I was living in Tianjin and applied for a job in Beijing, where the recruitment agent said a criminal record was required. As I hadn't left China in six years they said a Chinese one would suffice.

 

The PSB office where I was registered requested something in writing from my school and I was required to get it stamped as genuine with a notary public office. What the PSB gave me was a stamped document torn off from an A4 piece of paper confirming I hadn't committed offences while registered with that office.

I know exactly how to apply for a police clearance certificate (PCC) in Qingdao. I've helped a few foreigners obtain PCCs in Qingdao. Either you or a third-party representative must appear in the person at the police station where you registered your residence. if you call the police station on telephone, the chances are that an officer would tell you they don't issue PCCs to foreigners. The reason is that the officer who answers the telephone is only familiar with common police service. Foreigners applying for PCCs happens rarely, so the officer has no idea about it. You must go there in person and request to speak with a supervisor. I had experience in getting PCCs at multiple police stations in Qingdao. You just need to find the right person at a police station. If you have any further question about getting a police certificate, contact me at www.chinatraveldocs.com

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
