If you see this

1_Preparation of documents required to apply for and obtain a Vietnam No Crime Certificate

Before an application ( to get a criminal certificate) for a criminal certificate, we need to prepare the below documentation.

Document note
1-1_Passport (must be notarised)
1-2_Certificate of temporary residence issued by the Public security landlord can prepare
1-3_Power of Attorney if applying on behalf of the applicant to the Judicial Office Need interpreter

1-1_Preparation and notarisation of the passport

The first step is to prepare your passport. This needs to be notarised in Notary office

Approximate time: 3 hours (can be done in one day) 🙂

1-2_Obtaining a “Certificate of Temporary Residence” issued by the Vietnam Public Security

The next step is to obtain a “Certificate of Temporary Residence”. You can get the certificate in the following two steps.

  1. STEP1: Contact your landlord and ask for the “Temporary Residence Certificate”.
  2. STEP 2: Submit it to the Public Security Bureau and get a stamp.

Estimated time: 5 working day

❗️In some cases, you will need to obtain a ‘temporary residence certificate’ with a public security stamp.
It is a good idea to have more than one of these as they can be used for TRC and other procedures.


1-3_Notarisation of the power of attorney when applying to the judicial office on behalf of the applicant

The next step is to prepare the power of attorney for the application to the judicial office. This is a special case.

The application for a “Certificate of No Crime” should normally be made by the applicant. However, foreigners, for example Japanese, are not fluent in Vietnamese.

Therefore, Applicant needs to delegate it to a Vietnamese person.

This power of attorney needs to be notarized. However, this is not the same as a normal notarization. The power of attorney must be notarized with the help of a person who can interpret Japanese.

We need the help of a Japanese interpreter(In case Applicant is Japanese, Need support of Japanese interpreter)

The notary will explain everything to the applicant (Japanese). This is then explained to the applicant by the “interpreter”.

I declare that I understand this and write a note.

「Yes, I understand. I understand what you told me!」

And so on.

I’ve also included a picture of a sample.
