How to obtain a Brazilian Criminal Record Certificate

Most authorities requiring criminal record certificates ask for a recent certificate (usually issued within the last three months)

Certified translations of Brazilian Police Clearance Certificates

When presenting a Brazilian criminal record certificate in a country which does not have Portuguese as an official language, then a certified translation may be required. A translation can be done in Brazil by an official sworn translator (Tradutor Público Juramentado) and then certified with an apostille stamp from the National Justice Council so that it is accepted abroad.

Isarey works with local notaries and sworn translators in a wide range of destination countries. We'll take care of the entire legalization and translation process, so that your certificates are correctly translated and ready to submit:

  • GERMANY: translations into German must be certified by an officially authorized and appointed sworn translator.
  • SPAIN: translator must be authorised by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign AffairsExternal link (opens in new tab) ("Traducción Jurada")
  • FRANCE: translations into French must be certified by a translator accredited by a French court of appeal (Cour d'appel)
  • ITALY: translations must be authenticated by a Court Clerk or by a Notary Public in Italy
  • PORTUGAL: translations into Portuguese can be certified in Portugal by a local notary
