Guide to Applying for a China Police Certificate in Tianjin

Around Sept. 2017, the Division of Exit and Entry Administration of Tianjin Public Security Bureau (PSB) replaced Tianjin Criminal Science & Technology Research Institute to be the government entity that police certificates to foreigners, aka Certificate of No Criminal Record. Since then, the PSB has slightly changed the application procedures. For example, the PSB no longers requires an applicant to pick up his certificate upon issuance. Instead, the PSB delivers the certificate directly to a local notary office which subsequently issues a notarial police certificate.

In this article, we will explain the general procedures and requirements about how a foreign national who has lived in Tianjin applies for a China police certificate, also known as a police clearance certificate or certificate of no criminal record.
