How to Get a Police Character Clearance Check - Fee Update

A POLICE Clearance certificate is a vital document that is needed for many purposes. However, many people do not know how to obtain a police clearance certificate.

According to the Acting Officer in Charge (OIC) of the National Criminal Records Office (NCRO) Chief Sergeant Kasa Wumber there are six main types of Police Clearance reports done by his office. 

These include five Character Checks and a Police Crime Report. The character checks include; 

  • Public Motor Vehicle (PMV) character check, 
  • Papua New Guinea police character check, 
  • firearms character check, 
  • expatriates in Papua New Guinea character check and 
  • expatriates overseas character check.

Location of police clearance check (National Forensic Centre)

Police Clearance reports are issued by the NCRO currently located at the National Forensic Centre, Varahe Road Gordons in Port Moresby. No police stations or another office can issue a police clearance certificate.

The only authorised signature on the certificate must be that of the OIC National Criminal Records Office, by the delegation on behalf of the Commissioner of Police. In the absence of the OIC the second officer in charge (2IC) will sign on his behalf. Any other signature on the Police Clearance certificate is not to be accepted.

 How to Apply for a Police Clearance Certificate Check - UPDATE

To apply for a police clearance certificate, you can pick up a form at the National Criminal Records Office. For those living in the other provinces, you can collect a form from your nearest police station where you will be fingerprinted. Pay the K65.00 fee at your nearest finance cashier office and attach the receipt with the application form and mail it to the NCRO office at the Police National Headquarters to the following address: OIC National Criminal Records Office RPNGC, P.O 85, Konedobu, National Capital District. 

Alternatively, pay the fee and take the receipt and a recent ID photo of you to the National Criminal Records Office at Gordons (for those in Port Moresby). The officers of the NCRO will assist with the Police character check forms and also take your fingerprints for processing. 

If you are living outside of Port Moresby, see what the Police has to say about getting  a Police Character Clearance Check in the direct quote below:

"Many people have been commenting about police clearance for other provinces. For the time being you now have the form. Print whichever form you need and fill in the details as required. For fingerprinting please go to your nearest police station and a policeman will help fingerprint you. Pay your K10 (sic. Now K65) fee, attach the receipt and mail it to the address listed. Unfortunately, online lodgement is still a long way away for us at this stage. Thank you for all your comments" [Response extract from RPNGC FB comment]

Now K65) on Vulupindi House in pom can I go to Lihir police office using Vulupindi receipt to fill up the form of police clearance and I will submit it in pom when I'm going for my field break?" [Angelo Bascon, FB comment, extract]
