Hi everyone, we are in New Zealand on work visas, we are in the process of applying for residency and would like to know how does one go about applying for South African Police Clearance from this side of the world. Not even sure where to start and what would be the quickest way to go about it. Thanks Guys.

Good morning. According to the SAPS website:

South African citizens living outside the Republic, may apply at any Police Station in that country or at the South African Embassy. Fingerprints should be taken on the official fingerprint forms of the specific country. The fingerprint form must be signed by the person who took the fingerprints. The application must be accompanied by a completed set of fingerprints and a copy of the applicants Identity Document or Passport.
