What is a Tanzanian Police Clearance Certificate?

Tanzanian Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) is a vital document required for immigration purposes or whenever one needs to relocate overseas for work. The PCC is an official document used to prove that you are an individual of sound character and ensure that you do not have a criminal background.

Process To Getting A Tanzanian Police Clearance

Applicants will need to get fingerprints taken at the nearest police station in the country their living in.

  • An application form must be duly completed.
  • We will also require a certified copy of the applicant’s ID / Passport.
  • A letter from the applicant requesting a “Certificate of Good Conduct” from the applicant. The letter should provide details of the place you last resided while in Tanzania showing name of district, name of town, street name (if available) and house number.
  • Send us the documents via DHL.

Once we have received your payment and all your completed documents, we will proceed to submit the application to the Director at the Forensic Bureau (Criminal Investigation Department Headquarters) in Dar es Salaam, where we will ensure that your application gets registered and processed accordingly. Process time is currently 7-10 working days.

As soon as your application is successfully completed, we will:

  • Email you a scanned copy of your Police Clearance Certificate for you to have a look if all the details on the document are correct.
  • Courier the original document via DHL
