Do I need to send the original document or a copy?

You always need to provide your original certificate. Whether the original document or a copy of it is stamped depends on the following points:

- If your document is not exempt from solicitor stamping, we will make a copy of your document and stamp the copy. This is because the solicitor does not stamp originals. However, the solicitor must still see the original.

Note: Non-ACRO police certificates are the only original certificates which are attested by the solicitor.

- If your document is exempt from solicitor stamping (see above), your original document will be stamped. This is because the FCO does not allow stamping of copies. Therefore, you must provide the original certificate.

Non-ACRO Police Certificates

ACRO Police Certificates are the only police certificates which do not require solicitor stamping. Therefore, you will only have to select the service which includes FCO + Bahrain Embassy Attestation. A non-ACRO police certificate can still be stamped however unlike ACRO it will require attestation from the solicitor before it can be stamped by the FCO and Bahrain embassy.

Therefore, please select the service which includes solicitor, FCO and embassy for non-ACRO police certificates
