Posted by admin on April 2nd, 2012 — Posted in Passport

To apply for the Police Clearance Certificate you must hold a valid passport. Sometimes, the visa office requires you to procure the Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) to grant you the visa of the country you want to travel to. There are two ways to apply for the Police Clearance Certificate. They are as follows:

Online Application for Police Clearance Certificate (PCC)

To apply online for the PCC you need to visit the passport seva website and register yourself to get a user account. Once you have a user ID and password you need to do the following:

  • Click on the Apply for Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) on the left side of the menu.
  • Fill in the required details like your Passport No., Name, etc. mentioned in the form.
  • Submit from online after filling it.
  • Upload the required documents from the option Upload Document from your homepage. The documents should be self-attested after taking a printout of the scanned copy and then uploaded as a PDF file.

E-form Submission for the Police Clearance Certificate (PCC)

Another way to apply for PCC is through e-form submission. Here the applicant does not need to create a user ID to fill the form but the user account is necessary for the submission. The applicant has to follow these steps:

  • Download the e-form from the official website of the passport seva on your computer.
  • Fill in the e-form and save it.
  • Create a user account at the passport seva website and upload the form by clicking the Upload E-Form option on the left side on the navigation bar.
  • Upload your self-attested documents in the form of a PDF file.

After the successful submission of the application for PCC, the applicant needs to visit the Passport Seva Kendra(PSK)/ Mini Passport Seva Kendra(MINI PSK) to complete the submission procedure. The applicant can schedule an appointment for a visit to the PSK/Mini PSK or can walk into one. After finishing all the formalities at the PSK/Mini PSK the applicant can collect a printed receipt of the final status of the application. The submission procedure ends here.

Things to Remember

  • Fill in the application carefully and accurately, as any error will lead to delay.
  • The system generates your Application Reference Number or ARN. This number is to be noted as the applicant will be required to provide it while completing the submission process.
  • In case of the applicant being minor and below 4 years of age, a photograph of the applicant with white background is to be carried along to the PSK/Mini PSK.
  • To book a prior appointment with the PSK view Manage Appointment on the homepage of the applicant.
