How to Get a Chinese Police Certificate as a Foreigner.
 

If you live in China:

If you apply at The Public Security Bureau (PSB): the PSB will issue the Certificate of No Criminal Convictions to applicants with Z (Work), X (Student) and J1 (Journalist) visa classes. If you have a different visa class, you need to ask your local PSB office how to apply.

You can apply in person or nominate a representative to apply on your behalf.

Step 1: When you apply at the PSB, you (or your representative) must bring:
- All of your original passport(s) (your current passport and any other passports that have your Chinese visa)
- Your Residence permit and Work permit A letter from your work or university/school where you worked or studied while you were in China and/or employment contract
- Applicable fees

Step 2: You must bring your certificate of No Criminal Convictions from the Public Security Bureau office to the Notary Public Office to get a notarised translation. You (or your representative) must bring:
- Your original passport (with your original Temporary Residence Card or Temporary Residence Permit)
- Your original certificate of No Criminal Convictions from the PSB.

Using a representative:
most places in China will allow a representative to apply for a police certificate on your behalf.
To nominate a representative, you must give the person a signed notarized authorisation letter (available at the office where you apply). When your representative applies on your behalf, he or she must bring:
- His or her national ID card
- A signed notarised authorisation letter from you
- His/her original Permanent Residence Registration (Hukou) booklet
- All of the documents that your local police station (in China) or embassy tells you are needed when you apply in person

If you live outside China:
Different cities have different ways to apply and you should ask your local office how to apply. Most places in China will allow a representative to apply for a police certificate on your behalf.
To nominate a representative, you must give the person a signed notarized authorisation letter (available at the office where you apply). When your representative applies on your behalf, he or she must bring:
