How to obtain a police certificate


Do I need to provide a police certificate when applying for permanent residence?

Yes. The police certificate must indicate all names you have used while in Tajikistan. The Embassy accepts only original police certificates. Print-outs of online search results are not acceptable. Authorities of some former Republics of the USSR may require the following Police Certificate request letter. You may download the letter here:

Persons residing in Tajikistan should apply to their local police stations using this request. Please ensure you request that your police certificate is issued by the Information Centre of the Ministry of Interior (29, Dzerzhinskogo str., Dushanbe. Tel. (992-37) 221-0854, 221-6751, 221-2457) or by an Information Centre of your region: Sogdyiskaya, Khatlonskaya or Gorno-Badakhshanskaya.

Persons residing outside of Tajikistan may wish to apply to the Consular section of the nearest Embassy of Tajikistan.
