A Certificate of Clearance (COC) is issued by the Criminal Investigation Department to certify that a person has no criminal conviction within a stipulated period of time of residence in Singapore. The Singapore Trade Office is not authorized to issue such certificates. 

Application submission and payment can be done through the SPF eServices website. Non-Singapore citizens (including Singapore Permanent Residents) are advised to submit an appeal at the eService webpage for consideration on a case-by-case basis.

For enquiries, applicants may contact the COC office at +65 6435 8277 between 9.00am to 5.00pm from Mondays to Fridays (excluding Singapore Public Holidays), or via email at SPF_COC_Ofice@spf.gov.sg.

In Taiwan, if you are required for fingerprint impressions, please approach any National Immigration Agency Service Centre for assistance.
