Obtaining a Police Clearance in Saudi Arabia
One of the documents you must obtain prior to being scheduled for an immigrant visa interview at the U.S. Embassy Riyadh is a Saudi police clearance. The Saudi authorities will require that you present a letter from the Embassy requesting the police clearance.
In order to obtain the letter from the Embassy, you must have the following:
- An immigrant visa case pending;
- Proof of residence in Saudi Arabia or a valid Iqama; and
- A letter from the National Visa Center requesting a police clearance.
You should submit your request to the U.S. Embassy in Riyadh during our immigration hours: Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday 9:30am-12:30pm.
Residents of the Western Province may obtain the letter from the U.S. Consulate General in Dhahran. Residents or Tabuk, Al Madinah, Makkah, Jizan, Al Baha, Asir and Najran may obtain the letter from the U.S. Consulate General in Jeddah.
