Police Clearance

 

There are two types of national police clearance certificates you can obtain from Mexico:

·         The Records Certificate (Constancia de Datos Registrales) which is issued by the Attorney General’s offices (Fiscalía General de la República - Former PGR).

·         The National Police Clearance Certificate (Constancia relativa a los antecedentes penales) issued by the National Safety Commission (Comisión Nacional de Seguridad - CNS)

Neither of these police clearance certificate can be obtained directly at the Embassy of Mexico in New Zealand.

 

To request either of these certificates, it is indispensable that you have a supporting letter issued by the Embassy of Mexico.
