Obtaining Police Certificate
Available. Residents of Jamaica should first pay for a police certificate at any Tax Office in Jamaica. They must present a passport, two passport-sized photographs, Taxpayer Registration Number (TRN), and evidence, such as a form letter of instructions to visa applicants, that the Embassy requires them to obtain police certificates for immigration purposes. There is both express and a 21-day service.
After the fee is paid, the applicant should take the receipt and documents to 34 Duke Street in downtown Kingston, where the applicant is fingerprinted. At the end of the specified period, applicants should return to 34 Duke Street to collect the police certificate.
Jamaicans living abroad and former residents of Jamaica may also obtain police certificates, but will need someone in Jamaica to act on their behalf. The applicant should furnish the person applying for the record on their behalf with fingerprints (notarized), two passport size photographs, a copy of the biographic page of their passport and a letter of consent authorizing application. If the applicant has a TRN number, then the fee can be paid at any Tax Office in Jamaica as above. If the applicant does not have a TRN number, then the fee should be paid at the Ministry of National Security, 2 Oxford Rd., Kingston 5. After the fee is paid, the documents are to be taken to 34 Duke Street in downtown Kingston for processing.
The issued certificate measures 8 x 6 inches with a heading of "Jamaican Constabulary." A photograph of the applicant is attached and an impression seal is placed on the photograph.
