What if I can't get a police certificate for my immigration application?

If you’re unable to get a police certificate from a country, you’re responsible to show why you can’t get one.

To prove that you can’t get a police certificate, you must:

  • show proof that you requested a police certificate from the correct authorities and
  • write a letter explaining all the efforts you have taken to get one

Even if you send us the above items, this is not a guarantee of acceptance.
