What documents are needed for a Certificate of no criminal record?

Certificate of no criminal record is a documentary confirmation of the absence of criminal liability and restrictions of a particular individual. It can be requested by many relevant authorities in certain situations or when processing state documents. Documents for a Certificate of no criminal record are submitted to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.

Types of the Certificates of no criminal record

Taking into account the criminal procedure legislation, several types of certificates are issued – "full" and "shortened".

"Shortened" includes information about the presence or absence of a criminal record. "Full" contains information about whether criminal charges have been brought, about the presence or absence of restrictions/criminal records that are provided for by the criminal procedure legislation.

Individuals request a Certificate in various cases defined by law – for visa processing, for employment purposes, for obtaining a permit for weapons, and others. At the same time, the legislation provides for a different amount of information about a person, depending on the specific purpose of using the document.

In one case, it is only necessary to prove that the person does not have a criminal record, and the other situation requires confirmation that the person not only has no criminal record, but also has never been convicted, even if, in accordance with the Criminal Code of Ukraine, the criminal record is removed or extinguished.

Therefore, the type of a Certificate must be specified – "full" or "shortened", the designation of this information is mandatory, and its absence may serve as a refusal to consider the request.

Here it is important to note that the list of necessary documentation will be different for citizens of Ukraine and non-residents.
