Swiss Police clearance certificate --what do they call it in German?

Hi,
I worked in Zurich for 1 year on a work permit. Nowadays I am in Canada. I have applied for Permanent Residency here which needs a police clearance (No police record certificate) from every country where I lived for more than 6 months.

When I came back from zurich I de-registered from Kreisburo and they gave me a certificate which has written on it "Abmeldebestatigung", which is issued by "Personenmeldeamt Stadt Zurich" department. I couldn't translate these words. So I am wondering is this the right document which states I am all clean from Zurich ??

If not, then can anybody kindly guide me how to get a NOC(No Objection Certificate) from Zurich Police while I am in Canada?

Please help.

You probably need a Strafregister. You can apply for it online here but I'm not sure if they will issue it if you aren't resident here but you can always ask them.

Takes about a week to process.

you don't need the whole Strafregister (which is the criminal register) more an "Auszug des Strafregisters" which will be a paper stating you don't have a record (you hope!)

To expand on the previous responses:

"Abmeldebestätigung" is only a confirmation that you de-registered.

What you need for the Canucks is an excerpt from your criminal record (in High German called "Strafregisterauszug").

You can order that excerpt here

http://www.criminal-records.admin.ch/

from the Swiss gubmnt, and of course a small fee applies.

Re: Swiss Police clearance certificate --what do they call it in German?

Hi ,
I have been to above website. I think that's not applicable in my case as I am not a Swiss citizen. I tried to fill the order form for a no-criminal-record certificate, but it never asks the duration (from __date to __date) when I was in Zurich. So, I think it is for citizens only who live there permanently.

So what to do ? Whom I should contact ? Please help

Tomcat's given you the page....

f the extract is required by a foreign authority, an attestation by the Federal Chancellery is usually necessary. We will provide the attestation for an additional charge of CHF 20.
I suggest you contact them directly to ask more specific questions; you might have to dig around the website...

I gave you the page / link to the Web site. It comes in English. It is easy. It is for non-citizens (I am one of them and I got a Strafregisterauszug through the site).

Do we need to explain it using marbles and sticks?
