Police Clearance Certificate

Written November 3rd, 2016

FBI Police Clearance Certificate

A FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) Police Clearance Certificate is an "FBI Report" documenting results of a criminal background check that the requesting applicant may or may not have. The FBI Police Clearance Certificate typically details whether or not the applicant has a criminal record in the United States and is usually required as part of a Visa process by the respective foreign agency. There are cases where the Police Certificate (FBI Report) may also include foreign criminal history information where it has been disclosed to the FBI.

Depending the country and/or agency a Police Clearance Certificate can be viewed as an equivalent of a Police Record, Police File, Police Check, Identity History Summary Checks, or even a Criminal History Check. An important fact to remember here is that these names are commonly used by local, state and federal agencies.

Be sure to double check with your requesting agency that you are obtaining the specific "agency level" report. A Police Clearance Certificate for your local police department is not the same as obtaining one from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).

How Long Are Police Certificates Valid?
There is no set period of time for which a FBI Police Clearance Certificate is considered to be valid. The FBI Police Certificate is only truly accurate on the date of the criminal background check was actually conducted on (date of issue). Foreign Embassies, High Commissions, Consulates or other government authorities usually require applicants to provide their FBI Police Certificate that has been issued within the past six (6) months.
