Default Police Certificate from Saudi (PCC)

Is Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) required from Saudi Arabia to apply for Canadian Immigration (PR).
I am NOT a Saudi Citizen but worked there about a year and so far I got no clue how to obtain PCC from Saudi.

Had any body successfully obtained Police Clearance Certificate from Saudi Arabia?

There are no responses to many emails and calls to Saudi Embassy in USA in requesting the PCC.

I have also applied for Canadian PR in June of 2002 and I had lived in Saudi Arabia for 2 years in the past. The application then said that you should not attempt to get PCC from Saudi because they will not give you one. The application also indicated that the Canadians will inquire on your behalf. This might have changed since then, so check your application first.

I'm not sure if this helps you, but I lived in the UAE for slightly over 6 months after I turned 18. I just received my initial assessment and they didn't ask me for a police clearance from the UAE.

SAUDI ATHORITIES WILL NEVER GIVE SUCH CERTIFICATES WITHOUT PROPER DOCUMENTS. BUT I THINK YOU CAN CLAIM CANADIAN EMBASSY THAT YOU HAVE TRIED FOR OBTAINING PCC . YOU MAY ASK THEM TO TREAT EXIT VISA ON PASSPORT AS PCC FROM SAUDI ARABIA AS SAUDI PASSPORT DEPARTMENT ONLY ISSUES EXIT VISA TO THOSE FORIEGNERS WHO DONT HAVE ANY POLICE RECORD............

If I were you, I wouldn't say anything at all. Send your application without it and see what happens. According to this lawyer web site, you don't neet to obtain a police Certificate from Saudi Arabia. Is this information accurate or not? I don't really no, but all I know is that it was true for my case.

Why are you using Capital letters? Stop being too angry
If you read my last post, you will see that I questioned the accuracy of the web site myself All I said, is that it was true in my case which is very recent by the way. I received my Initial Assessment two weeks ago.

Take a deep breath

Slightly different situation for me but I hope it helps. I lived and worked in Germany for 14 months after my 18th birthday before returning to the UK. (I am a british citizen). When preparing my PR application, I was advised that I most definately had to submit police clearance from ANY country where I had lived or worked for more than 6 months since my 18th birthday. If I left out the information, my application would be returned/delayed etc.

Im Indian Citizen, worked in Saudi for about 18 Months and did not return to Saudi even after having Exit-Re-entry Visa.

So for no use of contacting the Saudi Embassy in US in getting any details about PCC.

If any body lived and left Saudi and living in other country and know how to get PCC, I would really appreciate it.
