Experience of Getting Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) – Indian Citizen

One of the mistakes people do when they decide to leave Saudi Arabia permanently means at the time of going on final exit visa is “not getting police clearance certificate” from the Police Department. Generally, you don’t need it if you are planning to stay in your home country but if your plan is to go to European countries, USA, or Australia for work purpose, they need police clearance certificate from all the countries you have lived in your life. Even if you don’t have such plan of visiting these countries, I would strongly recommend you to take it before your final exit, you never know about the future.
