A Certificate of Clearance (COC) is issued by the Singapore Police Force (SPF) to eligible Singapore citizens to certify that a person has no criminal conviction within a stipulated amount of time in Singapore. The Embassy is not authorised to issue COCs.



For Singapore Citizens Only 


Singapore citizens who are overseas may apply for a COC online at https://eservices.police.gov.sg/content/policehubhome/homepage/certificate-of-clearance-hub.html.


The required documents, payment details (including the cost for mailing the COC to an overseas address) and other relevant details are also available on the website.


For more information, you can contact the Criminal Records Office at +65 6435 8277 or email them at SPF_COC_Office@spf.gov.sg.



For Non-Singapore Citizens (Including Singapore Permanent Residents)


Non-Singapore Citizens who wish to apply for a COC are required to first submit an online appeal to SPF for consideration on a case-by-case basis. Please refer to https://eservices.police.gov.sg/content/policehubhome/homepage/certificate-of-clearance-hub.html for more details. The Embassy is unable to process or forward such appeals to SPF on your behalf.
