Life in a place like Abu Dhabi can be very expensive. As a result, sometimes, an individual ends up with a huge debt to pay. If you were involved in such a situation and now have paid your debt in full and have also received a clearance letter for the confirmation of payment, you might be wondering if you are allowed to fly to Abu Dhabi again.
In most cases, where you owe a debt and leave the country without paying it, the bank opens a police case against you. However, not being sure of whether there was a police case against you and now wanting to enter Abu Dhabi again is a complicated scenario.
In this case, you can apply for a Police Clearance Certificate, also called Good Conduct Certificate to verify your status. The PCC service allows individuals to obtain a Police Clearance Certificate for a variety of purposes, such as:
- Marriage Permission or License
- Name Change
What requirements are there for PCC?
You will require submitting your fingerprints in one of the Police Stations or the Department of Criminal Investigation. If you had a clean record during your stay in Abu Dhabi, you will get that certificate. Otherwise, you won’t.
The PCC service fee is AED 100 for UAE citizens, AED 200 for expatriates, and AED 300 for people outside the UAE.
You can apply for Police Clearance Certificate online, enhanced offline, and traditional offline, i.e. post. When applying through the post, it is mandatory to send your certified fingerprints along with the transaction number and supporting documents.
Documents Required for Police Clearance Certificate
To apply for obtaining a Police Clearance Certificate in Abu Dhabi, you will need the following requirements:
- A valid Emirates ID
- 2 Recent passport-size photographs
- Your email address
- A copy of your passport
The Process of Applying for a Police Clearance Certificate
You can install the app MOI UAE on your smartphone. Find the Good Conduct Certificate tab and click on it. You will be asked to fill in some information and details. Read carefully and enter your details accurately. Once you are done with entering the details, a confirmation code will be sent to your registered mobile number. Enter the code and you will be directed to smart government payment screen to complete the process.
However, to ensure that your process of obtaining a police clearance certificate is hassle-free and time-saving, it is better to hire a consultant to complete the process. Besides, if you have any doubts in the process and not sure of what to do in a certain scenario, the consultant will also provide the required, updated information and clear all your doubts.
While you have ways to get PCC yourself, there are always higher chances of making mistakes as you don’t deal with such processes in your daily routine. And making mistakes can lead to unnecessary delays and complications. So, it is usually best to prefer the services of a professional consultant.
