Police Character Certificates are processed at the Consulate General of Pakistan in Melbourne for the Pakistani community members and foreign nationals residing in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. The applicants can apply Police Character Certificates in person or by mail/email.
For Police Character Certificates applications related to Sindh, KPK, Baluchistan, Islamabad, Azad Jammu & Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan, the applications are processed manually while for the overseas Pakistanis hailing from the Punjab province, the applications are processed online through an online portal developed by the Punjab Police. The overseas Pakistanis belonging to Punjab province, who intend to apply for Police Character Certificate from Punjab Police, may avail this online facility which provides considerably shorter processing times (02-03 weeks). It may, however, be noted that personal presence of the applicant is mandatory to avail this online facility.
