Canada Police Clearance (for B Permit)

My husband got the authorization to enter Switzerland last week, so we contacted the local consulat and they are apparently processing the visa so it can be put into his passport.
The migration office in Zurich has asked that he bring along a police clearance to hand in when we register/go for our appointment to see them after our move. My husband got a regular police clearance done last week (at the local police, fill out form and they send it stamped as no criminal record), but we are now wondering whether they need the RCMP fingerprint police check, which seems like a more extensive check (takes up to 2 months)? Has anyone come from Canada, having to hand in a police clearance? If so, which police clearance was required? Our local consulate is no help at all

Re: Canada Police Clearance (for B Permit)

Hi! I am from Canada as well and the immigration office in Zürich asked me a police clearance as well before they allowed me the B permit( familial reunification). I just gave them the "yellow paper" ( without finger print) from Montreal ( the date on it was on February 2012 ( as i left Canada last year to go to Germany) and they accepted it! Hope it 'd help!

The yellow slip is good enough - no fingerprint check needed.
