How to obtain a police certificate - Hong Kong

Do I need to provide a police certificate when applying for permanent residence?
Yes. However, the certificate will be released directly to the Canadian Consulate General. If the request is made by a CIC office in Canada or by another overseas visa office, the certificate will be released directly to that office.

How and where do I obtain one?

If you live in Hong Kong
You should apply for a Certificate of No Criminal Conviction (CNCC) in person. You will be required to provide:

  • your Hong Kong identity card or valid travel document
  • the original letter from the Canadian Consulate General requesting the certificate;
  • the original and a photocopy of the documents proving your relationship with the Principal Applicant for the visa application if the letter from the Canadian Consulate General does not contain your name (for dependents of the Principal Applicant only); and
  • the processing fees of 180$HK (Fees are subject to change)

Fingerprints will be taken at the time of application. Application forms and instructions can be downloaded from www.police.gov.hk/ppp_en/08_forms/ and should be submitted to:
