My name is Laura and I lived to China for two years, one year in Chengdu and one year in Ningbo. I am in the process of applying for an Australian visa, but need to get a police certificate from Chengdu. I am having such a nightmare trying to get this, is there anyone that has done it before and could let me know exactly how it's done?
You'll have to provide more info:
-Where are you?
Which Australian Consulate are you applying at?
-Are you Chinese?
-Is the police certificate simply a registration of residence, or something other?
If you are a foreign person now in Chengdu looking for this clearance paper, then you need to go to your local neighborhood police station (bring a Chinese friend).
After being pointed across town several times and over the course of several days, you will probably get what you need.
Either you or a representative must make the application in person at Chengdu Notary Office. The required documents include passports, temporary residence registration forms and employer/ school letter confirming no conviction and employer/ school contact card (涉外单位联系卡). Let me know if you need help with applying for a PCC in Chengdu. See our contact information at http://www.chinatraveldocs.com/china-police-clearance-certificate/.
