Dubai PCC

What is a Dubai PCC?

A Dubai PCC, or Police Clearance Certificate in Dubai, also known as a “Good Conduct Certificate," confirms an individual's criminal history within the Dubai Emirates. Police departments across the UAE issue this certificate, certifying that the person holds no criminal convictions.

In February 2018, the UAE government mandated job applicants to furnish a clearance certificate from their localities. If you're from Dubai or other emirates, your local law enforcement can provide the police clearance certificate. Additionally, if you've resided abroad for over five years, you must obtain certificates from relevant foreign authorities. The Dubai Police Clearance Certificate attests to your legal standing, indicating no criminal charges or unfulfilled obligations as a UAE citizen or resident. Employers and UAE authorities often require this certificate to ensure legal compliance.
