We are asked for Dominican good conduct certificates (also known as Dominican criminal background checks) every week for people who fit into the following categories:
- Non-Dominicans applying for residency and cédulas (ID cards) in the Dominican Republic, who must present up-to-date proof of having no criminal record in their home country as well as in the Dominican Republic.
- Persons applying for employment in the DR and overseas are asked to produce proof of having no criminal record, especially if the sought employment involves working with children or vulnerable people.
- Non-Dominicans who have spent a lengthy period of time in the Dominican Republic and who have subsequently returned to their home country in search of work, are asked for such proof as a matter of course
Whilst commonly referred to as Dominican good-conduct certificates, the documents are officially called Statements of no Criminal Convictions.

The stamp in the top left corner is from the Dominican Foreign Ministry
as part of the apostille process.
The process takes us about two weeks from start to finish.
Our service includes the certificate's legalization, and the apostille from the Dominican Foreign Ministry.
If you are Dominican we require a copy of your current valid ID card (cédula), if you are a foreigner we need a scanned copy of the information page from your current valid passport which contains your photograph and relevant data.
If you have any other questions, please just contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
