Hi Guys, I have found there are lots of doubts about who should get PCC from Indian Embassy and how to get it. I would like to compile on single thread about Police Clearance Certificate for your convinience. Any questions or suggestions, lets discuss right here. Who should apply for PCC in Indian Embassy for the purpose of Canadian Immigration? Any person who lives outside India, invariably where you live, should get the PCC. For example: if you have lived in India till 21 years of old, you got a job in Japan for 2 years, later you accepted a position in US, you have to apply for PCC in India, Japan and US. Though this thread deals how to get PCC from an Indian embassy, please go to the other countries website to get a PCC for the period you stayed in other countries too. In USA, additional to local Police Certificate, you have to get Clearance from FBI using Fingerprints. Where should I apply for PCC? The eligible Indian Embassy. ("eligible" - suppose someone from Maryland cannot apply for PCC in Indian Embassy in Newyork but should apply only from the embassy in Washington DC.) How and What should I send? 1. Locate the website of your "eligible" Indian Embassy or contact the Embassy for the form named "APPLICATION FOR MISCELLANEOUS SERVICES", which would be used for multi purpose, such as Name Change, Change of address & other miscellaneous services on the passport, Birth/Death/Marriage Certificate and Police Clearance Certificate to mention a few. 2. Fill up the form, fill only where it is required. 3. Do not fail to include your original passport along with the copies of all the pages of the passport, travelling visa documents (H1 or B1). 4. Enclose Money Order for the amount mentioned in the form (from USA, I enclosed $20 for normal service, if you wanted to have a faster service, call them and ask how much money you needed to attach for Expedited services along with the Speed Post charges) 5. Write a letter indicating your name, address and the purpose of requesting the Police Clearance Certificate (Here mention that it is for Canadian Immigration). DO NOT FORGET THIS. They will provide PCC only for a particular reason. 6. Send it to the Indian Embassy and for normal process it should take 4-6 weeks and Expedited Process it may take lesser than one week. But always keep calling them and talk to them politely, they can help you in getting things faster. I hope this helps you guys.
