Police Clearance Now Required in the State of Qatar

British Nationals applying for a Qatari residence permit, work permit, transfer of sponsorship, Ministry registration, or for any other reason will be required to provide a valid Legalised Police Clearance Certificate from the UK in order to obtain their Qatari Certificate of Good Conduct.

The Association of Chief Police Officers website has information on how to apply for a Police Certificate or Subject Access Request and links to all UK police forces. You may also apply to Disclosure Scotland if you’re a resident of Scotland.

Once you have your Police Clearance Certificate, you must have it legalised in the UK in order to prove its authenticity to the Qatari Authorities.
