The process to obtain a Police Certificate consists of two parts.


First: Request a letter of support to the Embassy of Mexico in New Zealand:


  • Fill out the application form (Download HERE).
  • Scanned copy of your valid passport.


Both documents should be sent to the following email Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo. in PDF format.


Second: The following documentation must be presented at the District Attorney´s Office in person, or by proxy:


  1. Original support letter issued by the Embassy of Mexico in New Zealand.


  1. Two original sets of fingerprints (the service is offered by some Kiwibank branches, to book an appointment click HERE)


  1. Valid passport (copy if residing abroad).


  1. Proof of address in New Zealand, with validity no longer than three months (electricity, water, telephone bills or a bank statement). An official translation into Spanish must be provided if this document is in English or other language.


  1. Multiple Immigration Form (FMM), FM-2, FM-3 or Resident Card.


  1. Birth certificate or naturalization letter of the applicant (readable without deletions or amendments). An official translation into Spanish must be provided if this document is in English or other language.


  1. Two colour photographs without retouching, passport size, one in front and one in right profile (white background, without glasses, without makeup, without a beard or moustache, bare head, or any garment that prevents full identification of the person and taken prior to the request for proof of not more than 30 days).


  1. Make the payment for $184.00 MXN at Grupo Financiero Banorte through the agreement 149583 and reference 18443101.


In case of carrying out this procedure by someone else, attach a power of attorney signed by the grantor (Download example HERE) accepting the mandate and by two witnesses (copies of valid identifications would be required).

ATTENTION: The Criminal Record Certificate or Non-Criminal Record Letter (Constancia de Antecedentes Penales or Carta de Antecedentes No Penales) is NOT accepted by New Zealand immigration authorities. If you present this document, your immigration process will be rejected. To avoid setbacks, we suggest you carry out the Police Certificate (Constancia de Datos Registrales) procedure.
