How to Obtain a Police Certificate from Outside the UAE

Police certificate or police clearance is an official document issued by a police authority or government agency of a country stating whether an applicant has a criminal record after a background check. This is usually requested by the Immigration depending on the visa you're applying for. Even if you haven't committed any crimes in the past, you still have to provide a Police Certificate as evidence of good character.

Almost all UAE government services can be accessible online through the website or mobile app including the issuance of a Police Clearance Certificate (Certificate of Good Conduct). This makes it very convenient for someone like me who doesn't live there anymore. You only need two things: a copy of your old Emirates ID and a credit card.

How to Renew Philippine Passport in Auckland

My passport is about to expire in less than a year. Most countries require a passport to be valid for up to 6 months. In order to avoid any inconvenience when travelling, I have to apply for a renewal. Filipinos in Auckland have two options: (1) Go to the Philippine Embassy in Wellington or (2) Wait for any announcement regarding Consular Outreach Mission in Auckland.

Travel: Waiheke Island

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary by sipping, sniffing and swirling our way through the vineyards in Waiheke. The island is a renowned destination for the best boutique wineries and food in New Zealand. If you have time to spare while in Auckland, you should consider having a day trip here. It's only a 40 minute ferry ride away from the city.
