Information which might help[edit]

Japanese police certificates will not contain information about criminal convictions when:

  • The period of suspended sentence has ended;
  • The penalty of the crime was a fine, and the crime occurred more than five years ago;
  • The term of the prison sentence ended more than ten years ago; or
  • The conviction was vacated or the criminal was subject to a pardon or amnesty.

Persons convicted of crimes in Japan may obtain court conviction records indefinitely. The headquarters' records section of the Metropolitan or Prefectural police issues certificates which include a nationwide criminal records check. For more information link

Other uses of the Document/Certificate[edit]

  • A Interpol Clearanceis used as a copy of the criminal record or a declaration of the absence of any criminal record.
  • Police clearance certificates are different in each country and territory and may be called police certificates, good conduct certificates, judicial record extracts, etc.
