In order to get a police clearance certificate from any Emirate of UAE,
the candidate has to get his fingerprints attested in black ink by the
local police station of his city, then by the Ministry of Home of his
state and then by the Ministry of External Affairs of India. The
address of their Delhi office is Consular Section, Patiala House,
Tilak Marg, near India Gate. Other offices of the Ministry of External
Affairs are in Chennai, Guwahati, Hyderabad and Kolkata. The candidate
can also directly approach the Fingerprint Cell in Patiala House to
get his fingerprints done. Attested finger prints are then to be
submitted in the UAE Embassy from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, Monday to
Friday. Rs. 1500/ is the fee per certificate in cash, and the document
would be returned back after two working days between 2:00 pm and 3:00
pm. In case of urgency, the document can be returned back on the same
day by paying Rs. 750/ extra, per certificate in cash.

Embassy, you have to send them to the appropriate agency in the UAE.

We suggest sending the documents to a friend in the UAE, so that your
friend can obtain the certificate from the Police Department on your
behalf. This will greatly reduce the processing time compared to
sending the documents directly to the Police Department. We do this
service against your authorization letter.
