The Certificate of Clearance (COC) is issued by the Criminal Investigation Department of the Singapore Police Force (SPF) to certify that the subject concerned has no prior criminal conviction in Singapore. The applicant must show documentary proof from the relevant consulate/immigration authority/government authority which clearly states that the COC is required.
Non-Singapore citizens who wish to apply for COC are required to submit an online appeal at the same website above. Non-Singapore citizens may apply for the COC online only after the appeal is approved.
