Police Clearance for ex-Saudi Arabia OFW applicants

What's Hot
emonsantoemonsanto MandaluyongTotal Reaction Points: 0Member
Good day to all!

I posted this at the "Other Migration Topics" category but I think it's more relevant here.. :)

We all know that one of the requirements for the visa application ay ang Police Clearance.

Howver, for those who already exited Saudi Arabia for a long time,this is a dificult thing to obtain.

I read this line, as mentioned in page 76 of the Character Requirement pdf document from the Australian Immigration website (http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/character-requirements/character-penal.pdf):

Non-Saudi citizens:

Currently non-Saudi citizens are unable to obtain a police certificate fromSaudi Arabia. However, you will need to provide DIAC with a copy of your final exit document, and, if you were employed while in Saudi Arabia, a letter from your previous employer.

Can you please advise if those of you in the same situation followed this process? Is submitting the final exit document enough? Thanks!

    Kabayan! Buti nakakuha ka pa ng PC, ako naka-exit ng di man lang nakakuha. Good luck sa application mo. Nakapass ka na ba ng mga documents? Anong visa ba inaapply-an mo?

    May nabasa ako dito na Statutory Declaration lang sinubmit ng isang aplikante at tinanggap naman. Nagbabakasakali ako dito na meron pa kayang ibang ganon din ang ginawa para ma-confirm e... :)

    Wow congrats! Granted visa ka na pala. Kung ok lang sana, baka pwede naman paki-describe yung process na ginawa mo para makuha yung clearance.

    -Pwede malaman yung ka-coordinate mong officer sa Saudi embassy?
    -May pinasa ka bang documents?
    -Pano pinadala sa yo yung clearance?
    -San nagbayad yung sister mo at magkano inabot?
    -Original police clearance ba pinasa mo sa visa application or certified true copy lang?
    -may expiration date ba yung clearance? dapat wala na diba kasi exit naman na e.

    Salamat!

    You need to complete the requirements of the Saudi Arabian Government to obtain a police clearance from them. Those requirements can be found on their web site at : www.saudiembassy.org.au

    The requirements are as follows:

    2. Two recent passport sized photographs
    3. Copy of your Passport which shows photo and residency permit pages during your residency in
    Saudi Arabia
    4. Letter of release from the sponsor in Saudi Arabia
    5. Any other document which you think may have relevance to your request or may assist in it's
    processing




    Once you have completed the necessary paper work you may send all the documents onto the Philippine Embassy in RIYADH, who will then pass it onto the Saudi Authorities on your behalf. We are informed that the response period is up to 3 months from the Saudi side before you may receive the Police Clearance. You must also send the fee of US$32.50 by Bank Transfer as follows:

    Name of Bank : SAUDI HOLLANDI BANK
    Address : DIPLOMATIC QUARTER
    Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
    Account Name : PHILIPPINE EMBASSY IN RIYADH
    Account Number : 037-040-790-014
    Currency : US Dollar
    Account Type : Current Account
    IBAN Account No. : SA 85 5000 0000 - 0370 4079 0014
    SWIFT CODE : AAALSARI

    All documents including copy of the bank transfer to be Mailed or send by Courier Service to:

    Embassy of the Philippines,
    Address: D3 Collector Road Diplomatic Quarter Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    For queries and follow-ups on applications, applicants may get in touch directly with Mr. Manuel B. Duran, Jr., Consular Assistant at the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at Tel. No. +9661 - 482-3816 or Email address: [email protected]

    @AJ0508 thanks so very much! Malaking tulong itong info na binigay mo. Nag-send na ako agad ngayon ng email kay Mr. Manuel Duran at hopefully magreply na sya.

    MAy mga katanungan pa ako pala:
    1. May expiration ba yung police clearance na binigay sa yo?
    2. Original ba pinasa mo sa Asutralian immigration or certified true copy pwede na?
    3. sa #3 item (Copy of your Passport which shows photo and residency permit pages during your residency in Saudi Arabia), yung latest lang ba binigay mo? Or from start talaga?

    Thanks again kabayan!

    @emonsanto

    1.Wala nkalagay expiration date dun sa PC ko.
    2.Certified true copy ang pinasa ko sa DIAC.

    exit letter at even un calling card ng dati ko Boss.(xerox copy).Pero inabot tlga ng 2
    months.

    Just to let you know na meron pa ko kinuha na police clearance d2 sa Au na ksama ko post sa KSA since d2 na ko.So mgkaiba scenario ntin.Pero di ko nakikita ang pgkaka iba na nag apply ka off shore or onshore.Or me sponsor/nomination or wala.Good luck and all the best mate.Basta sa Pamilya ntin kya ntin to.

    Naghanap ako ng mga documents ko. Nakita ko na yung photocopies ng iqama ko, release letter from my former company, at yung exit letter. At meron din akong calling card ng boss ko dati!

    1. Ano pala yung COF?
    2. Ok lang ba na puro photocopies lang mapadala ko?
    3. So posible kailanganin ko din kumuha ng Police clearance dito or mga fingerprints. May copy ka pa ba nung Police Clearance Form nasinend sa iyo ng Phil. Embassy? Baka pwede makahingi... kung ok lang. :)

    @AJ0508, maraming salamat sa mga information na binibigay mo. Tama ka, para ito sa pamilya natin.

    @j_1019alisen oo nga problema nga ito. :(

    Siguro depende na sa case officer. Pag sinabi natin yung situation natin. hopefully baka mag-suggest sila ng other alternatives like a statutory declaration or probably a letter of good standing from our previous employer. Try searching google for other possible alternatives, tapos ipost mo rin dito para ma-inform ang mga parehas natin.

    Eto nabasa ko na nag-submit sya ng Certificate of Good Conduct:
    http://lbautista.proboards.com/thread/1043/get-saudi-police-clearance?page=5

    Eto naman Character Statutory Declaration:
    http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/character-requirements/character-statutory-declaration.pdf

    Pero hindi ako 100% sure dito ha. Please don't take my word for it.

    For those nahihirapan po kumuha ng KSA Police clearance, you can provide a copy of your final exit document, and/or a letter from your previous employer. But this would depend pa rin sa case officer.

    Hi @Xiaomau82! thanks for your input. May I please ask if this is based on your own experience? Or possibly a friend/relative na na-approve using the documents you mentioned?

    @Xiaomau82, its so good to hear that!

    Hinanapan ba daw sya ng saudi police clearance? Anong letter from the employer ang sinubmit ng friend mo?

    Photocopy lang ba binigay nyang exit document? Kasi wala na akong original exit document dahil binigay ko upon leaving the airport.

    Maraming salamat!

    @emonsanto actually clearance from the employer ung prinovide nia together with the exit document. pero before nito, documented lahat ng correspondences nia with the police authorities. kaya hiningan na lang sia ng case officer ng either exit document or ung letter from his employer sa KSA. Pero mejo matagal, i think it took him about 3-6 months ng pakikipag usap sa both sides (KSA and Au).

    @emonsanto mostly email. Tas may time na andun pa sia mismo sa ksa. Nagpunta din sia personally kaso since wala sia sa Riyadh wala din sia nakuha. Hanggang sa naawa na din cguro yung CO sa kanya. Yung CO mismo nagsabi na exit letter n lng isubmit nia or ung letter from employer.
