Comoros - Police Clearance Certificate

From Wikiprocedure
Jump to: navigation, search



National Police Check is the Comoros equivalent of a ‘police clearance certificate’, ‘police record’, ‘police file’, ‘police check’ or ‘criminal check’. If you are asked for any of these, a copy of your criminal record from the Ministry of Justice should meet the requirements. If you have no convictions, you will receive a letter stating that is the case.


You will need to obtain an extract of the criminal record (Bulletin No 3 of the criminal record) through the “Tribunal de première instance” of Moroni if you are from Grande Comores and provide your birth certificate.
