Application for Police Clearance Certificate (PCC)

PCC is not exactly a Passport Service. PCC is a requirement of foreign governments for grant of immigration/ work/residence/family visa/permit. 

Please note that there is no validity specified for PCC. Brazilian authorities, in general, consider the validity of the PCC to be 3 months only from the date of issuance.

PCC can be issued only after receipt of a ‘Clear’ report from Police authorities in India. This process may take upto 8 weeks. Please note that there is no guarantee that PCC will be issued within the indicated time frame, as it is dependent on the receipt of a ‘Clear’ report from authorities in India. Thus, applicants should apply for PCC well in-advance.
