British Police Certificate

Applications for a Qatari residence permit will generally need to be accompanied by a valid Police Clearance Certificate. The Metropolitan Police website has information on how to apply for a Subject Access Request and links to all UK police forces. Residents of Scotland should visit Disclosure Scotland. Please see our page on Legalising a document for preparing this document for submission to Qatar Ministry of Foreign Affairs for new Residence Permit Applications.

Qatar Police Clearance Report


British Nationals can draw up their own oath/affirmation and have it administered at the British Embassy before a Consular Officer. This is generally sufficient for transfer of sponsorship, ladies work permits and Municipality Registration. If you are going to work for a Qatari Government Organisation you will require a Police Clearance Certificate from the UK. All documents provided must be originals.

Oaths and Affirmations:


If you need to make an Oath or Affirmation at the Embassy you can find a sample format overleaf. Forms of Oath are generally sworn on either the Holy Bible or the Holy Quran, whereas Forms of Affirmations are non-religious. You will need to complete the following steps in order to obtain a police clearance report from the Qatari authorities 1. Prepare your oath or affirmation in advance and bring it unsigned with your original passport and proof of address (a tenancy agreement or confirmation of address letter from your sponsor) to the Consular Section. We offer this service without a pre-booked appointment at any time during our consular opening hours. 2. Take your signed oath or affirmation to the Qatar Ministry of Foreign Affairs Consular Department to be attested. The MFA is located on the C Ring Roadclose to the Gulf Cinema Signal. 3. Finally, take your oath or affirmation with, 3 passport photographs, to the Criminal Evidence and Information Department (CEID) who will generate the Police Clearance Report for you. CEID is located on Salwa Road (straight over last roundabout towards Industrial Area, slip road to right and follow the signs). Please do not complete this document as a form, you must produce your own word document using the wording on the next page
