Certificate of Clearance (COC)

When applying for a visa or permanent residence in certian countries, a police certificate may be required to prove the applicants has no criminal record. A Certificate of Clearance (COC) is issued by the Singapore Police Force (SPF) to certify that a person has no criminal conviction within a stipulated period of time in Singapore. 

Singaporean citizens above the age of 16 are able to directly apply for a Certificate of Clearance (COC) if the applicant is able to prove the need for it (e.g migration/adoption/overseas employment/further education). 

In order for a non-Singapore citizen to apply for this certificate, they are first required to submit an appeal to the Singapore authorities that clearly proves the requirement of a COC. Only after the appeal is accepted will they be able to apply for the certificate.

We will support you in every step to obtain your COC in Singapore.


In addition, some countries also require further verification of the issued COC (legalisation). We can also help you with this step.

You are outside of Singapore, you can choose an option to authorise us to collect the COC on your behalf and deliver it to your address in overseas once the application is complete.
