Japanese police clearances

To obtain a police certificate you will need to apply to the prefectural police headquarters where you reside. In support of your application, you may need to produce a letter from the organisation which requires the police certificate stating why it is needed.

If you require a police certificate to register with the New Zealand Teachers Council, you may wish to print out this page and show the police the text below which helps to set out the Teachers Council's requirements.

If you have already returned to New Zealand, see the police certificate application information on the website of the Embassy of Japan in Wellington.
