I have recieved request for police certificate today.

I am currently living as an expat in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia.
So I will need Police clearance certificate from Saudi Arabia too.

I have read the document 'character panel' from DIAC, which details the procedure to get the PCC or ‘No Previous Conviction Certificate' as per saudia.

So my questions are basically to some one who have already applied for Saudia's PCC.

1. How do I get reference letter from Australian Emabssy? Can I get this license from Australian Consulate in Khobar too or do I have to go to Riyadh Embassy?

2. From where should I get this letter attested from? Can you provide any approximate address?

3. And which police station I need to submit this, there are many in Khobar? Can you provide approximate address?

4. How many days does it normally take?

As I said, I have already read it. But there are many specifics which are missing in this document.
I would suggest you to please check with the said KSA department directly and in case of any issue refer to your CO and DIAC.

Thanks.

Non-Saudi citizens
Currently non-Saudi citizens are unable to obtain a police certificate from Saudi Arabia. However, you will need to provide the Department with a copy of your final exit document, and, if you were employed while in Saudi Arabia, a letter from your previous employer

This is applicable if you are currently not in KSA..if you are still in KSA you can obtain the PCC fairly by going through the steps above..

I have made Visa Application. A CO has not yet been assigned to me.
Do I have to wait for CO to be assigned and ask me for PCC, or can I do it now ?
Is there any document that CO provides which helps me in obtaining the PCC ?

Option 1 : call the embassy, ask for the letter, pay for the letter + delivery, attest, request PCC, translate PCC

Option 2 : wait for CO allocation, CO will email the embassy , embassy will courier the letter to you (you pay only for delivery), attest, request PCC, translate PCC

Thanks.
1- You mean the CO will send the letter to Embassy of my own country in KSA. Right?
2- Attest from MOI or MOFA?
3- Request PCC from nearest Police Station? I am living in Jubail.
4- Is it better to start it myself to save time later? or CO gives time for this?
5- How long does it take when you submit Visa Application, till assignemnt of a CO

1- in KSA
2- attest from MOFA, then use the attested letter to request PCC from MOI
3- yes
4- no, wait. Doing it now costs more and will shorten your FED
5- 6-10 weeks

Just remember that it is KSA ... everything works slow there! If Initial Entry Date is not of a concern to you (if you plan to travel immediately after grant of visa), then it is better to start the process now .. it will cost you around 400 SR more if you don't wait for CO allocation.....

Police certificate

How much time CO gives to obtain letter and submit back.
In thread its mentioned upto ten weeks so do we have this much time.

And if Co emails embassy, does embassydirectly sends the letter to us. How they know our delivery address and how we pay embassy? Or is it that embassy calls us or emails us and ask for our credit card details so they may charge us for delivery and inturn get delivery address? Is it something like this.
