There are many reasons that one would require a police clearance certificate, whether it’s travelling overseas or applying for employment locally in high security positions of trust, however, of one thing you can be sure, police clearance is required for all South Africans who want to work or study abroad.

A police clearance certificate (PCC) tells the story of whether or not you have a criminal record attached to your name, no matter how far back it goes.

Any country that will be hosting you as an employee or student considers a police clearance certificate as a certificate of good standing, which allows them to trust the person they’re going to be allowing into their workplace or school/university.

With all the trouble that illegal immigration has caused, countries are tightening up their borders when it comes to allowing people in to work or study in their countries.

This is especially true when it comes to terrorism, human and drug trafficking, which has taken on immense proportions in many countries.
