A police clearance certificate is a document issued by the police authority in your country of origin stating that you have no criminal record or that you are not facing convictions for crimes committed in the local area over which they have jurisdiction or authority. This certificate is typically issued after a verification check is conducted by the police authority where the records of the police are surveyed to check for any matches with the name of the individual applying for the criminal record certificate.
The most common usage of a certified translation of a Police Clearance Certificate or criminal record certificate is for submission to the employer, immigration office, for purpose of obtaining a visa, etc. Aside from these, a certified translation of Police Clearance Certificates or criminal record certificates is also commonly required for employment in the airport in Ireland or for employment in aviation companies.
A police clearance certificate or a criminal record certificate is clearly a proof of one’s good moral conduct and thus many employers require them from prospective employees. For example, if you are applying for a job involving contact with children in Ireland you are very likely to be required a certified translation of your police clearance so that they can ascertain the validity and contents of your clearance certificate.
A certified translation of your police clearance certificate must accompany a copy of the police clearance certificate for it to be evaluated or deemed acceptable by the authorities in Ireland.
