Police Clearance Certificates are issued by the Federal Central Register (Bundeszentralregister) of the German Federal Office for Justice.

Please apply for a certificate of good conduct with the Federal Ministry of Justice in Bonn/Germany.

To download the application form and to obtain further information please visit the website of the Federal Ministry of Justice.

Personal data and signature on the application form have to be officially certified. This official confirmation can be obtained with any Canadian notary public, and sometimes at a police station.

You can also have your signature and personal data certified by a German Consulate. For that, you need to present the application form and a valid ID. If you are a German citizen, you need to present your valid German passport or “Personalausweis”. The fee for the verification of your date is, depending on the current exchange rate, apprx. 30,- C$.

  • Please make sure to book an appointment with the German Consulate through our website if you wish to have your signature and personal data certified by a German Consulate.
