New Delhi: A police clearance is no longer required for Indians in order to submit a Saudi Arabia visa application. According to a tweet from the Saudi embassy in India, due to the close ties and strategic relationship between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Republic of India, the police clearance certificate, or PCC, requirement for Indian citizens seeking visas has been eliminated.

Indian nationals who wish to travel overseas for employment, permanent residency, or long-term visas must apply for a PCC if one is needed under the destination country’s visa requirements.

In light of the strong ties and strategic partnership between the two nations, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has decided to exclude Indian citizens from submitting a police clearance certificate, the Saudi Embassy in New Delhi tweeted.

“The PCC will no longer be a requirement for Indian citizens to obtain a visa for travelling to Saudi Arabia,” the statement read.

This choice was made as part of the efforts made by the two nations to further solidify their ties.
