    Default Police Checks

    Hi.....dont know if this post is in the right section....but

    I lived in DR for 3 years and now moved back to UK. My new employer is currently insisting that I get a police check for my time that I lived abroad. Just had a current check done here, but they want one from there. I tried to explain to them how DR works and that I didnt think it was possible to get one, but they still insist.

    How would I do this if it is possible, bearing in mind I am not in DR?

    How much is it likely to cost? How long would it take?

    Also, I dont have a cedula.

    Thanks for any help.

    You were in POP were you not? I'll ask at the police station for you and find out.

    I expect a trip to get it would be in order, so I doubt will be cheap in the long run

    I would expect the Dominican police report and any travel/ lodging/ meals and incidental expenses required to secure it to be a reimburseable expense and at the very least 100% tax deductible since it's a condition of employment.

    Yes I was in PP.

    I will see if I can get any costs refunded. Bet it will end up being expensive for a piece of paper that says nada!

    I expect some may be, but he is unlikely to get the checks done quickly, he is possibly looking at a week to 2 weeks in the country waiting for it to be processed. Unless he does two trips, one to apply (be sure it gets attention and doesn't hit the bin) and another to collect.
    Mine from the UK for the DR took about a month from what I remember.
    But who knows, I never come across this, before. I always presume if you are enough of a menace they would just boot you out the country.

    That is "She" not he. Hopefully it can be done without you being present.

    Check the nearest Dominican consulate or embassy. If I'm not mistaken you can get a "Certificado de Buena Conducta" - Certificate of Good Conduct from the police.

    The police checks done for Immigrating to Canada are around 600 pesos. I would imagine it's the same price no matter what they are used for .
