Persons who have lived abroad
If an applicant has lived abroad for one year and one day or longer after the age of 18 in any one country, they must provide a Certificate of Criminal Clearance for that country. (This does not include periods spent in Northern Ireland which is covered under National Vetting Bureau).
An original or certified copy obtained from the local police authority for each country where you have lived must be submitted with your application. CORU does not require original documents, however, certified copies are required. A Solicitor, Commissioner for Oaths, Peace Commissioner or Notary Public must certify that the documents you submit to them are true copies of the originals - you will have to show the original documents to one of the above.
They must include their stamp on the copies to indicate they have been certified. If the certifier does not possess an official seal or stamp, then they must provide a signature and full name and address in block capitals.
If difficulties have arisen in obtaining police clearance for a particular country please contact email@example.com
An applicant does not need police clearance if they have lived in Northern Ireland. The National Vetting Bureau procedure undertakes vetting on both Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland addresses.
