Hello

Just wanted to inform the below.

You do not need an appointment for a PCC , Just upload the profile on the site and take a print out of the page where you try booking an appointment.

That should suffice.

Cheers

So, I was thinking about this again.

We have been delaying shifting our residence closer to office because we've been living here for about 3 years now. I think if I shift my residence, the PCC might get complicated because they seem to like you if you live at the same address for a long time.

What kind of problems I can run into if I go ahead and apply for a PCC right now - knowing that I might have a change of address post getting the PCC ?

For PCC, if the address mentioned in passport is different than the one in application requested, you need to provide some proof for current address else only the passport in original is needed when you to to PSK. If you change the address before PCC, you might not have some prescribed address proofs. so better get it done and then move. After PCC is granted, they don't bother about you change ur home or not.

I had put this question to DIAC -

"Is it ok if I apply for Police Clearance Certificate now - knowing that my application to DIAC is at least 2 months away ?"

The answer that I got was -


1."If you are applying for a police clearance from a country which is requesting a letter from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, you will need to wait until your application has been allocated to a case officer."


2."Police Clearance Certificates are considered to be valid for 12 months from the date that they are issued."


I think #1 is not applicable to India. I have filled the form available on the Passport Seva Portal for PCC and it doesnt mention a requirement for such a letter. It does ask for which country is the PCC required though.

What do the experts think ? Were they asked for such a letter ?

The PSK centre at Sahibabad, which comes under the Delhi RPO did not ask for any letter from DIAC when we got our PCCs.

I think I read in this forum that PSK in Gujarat asks for such letter. Even tough it is not mentioned in the passport India web page, few PSK asks for it. So better check with your PSK in person and confirm this else this can be a last minute surprise!

One thing about PCC in Hyderabad.

My wife and I were denied PCC because our passports do not have spouse name on them.

PCC and medicals are valid for one year from the date of issue..
So if you take them now and if for some reason these are required at a later stage then the CO will ask you to take them again...

I will strongly suggest you to take the PCC now...
medical is online anyways now and the reports get uploaded in a few days..

the processing time for visas is very fast and in all probability you will get it within an year

My query is that is it ok if I go ahead and apply for a police clearance certificate now ? I was trying to find out why do we have to wait till the CO asks for a PCC to apply for one.


Also, for some one looking to apply for PCC, you need to visit this site, register, get an online appointment and then visit the Passport Seva Kendra with all the documents- passportindia(dot)gov(dot)in

I got my renewed passport within 2 weeks by following the process listed at this site.

thats rite..
Gujarat has this mandatory rule...
Its funny and weird as to how one state's PSKs ask for the letter while other states dont..
ditto with this crazy "spouse's name in passport" ...
if the wife's passport has husband's name in it then where is the question of any discrepancy or wrong doing?
but our passport office is a little tipsy headed ...
gotta follow their weird rules...
