Available. For Cameroonians, the document involved is called the "Extrait du Casier Judicaire" which is issued by the Chief Court Clerk (Greffier en Chef) of the Tribunal de Premiere Instance in the capital of the province of the applicant's birth. This document will show convictions and other pertinent information or will indicate 'no record' by saying in effect "person's identity verified." Under Cameroonian procedures, convictions and other records occurring anywhere in Cameroon are sent to the court in the applicant's provincial capital for filing, thus making this document effectively a national clearance. The court clerk in Yaounde also has duplicate records for persons born in Northwest and Far North Provinces. The applicant can obtain the Extrait in person by presenting his or her National Identity Card at the clerk's office, or by sending the card to an immediate relative who can take it to the office for the applicant. There may be a fee for this service.
Non-Cameroonians resident more than 6 months in Cameroon, must obtain a Certificat de Bonne Vie et de Moeurs from the police commissioner of the Commissariat Special at the person's place of residence, or former residence if there is no record. If there is a record, the applicant must obtain an Extrait from the court, as above. The Certificat is not national, and in fact, only covers the district of the province in which the person lived. Thus an applicant, who has resided in two or more districts, each more than 6 months, must obtain a Certificat from each district. The Certificat can be obtained by the applicant in person, or by mailing a request to the appropriate Commissariat(s) with the following information: name, date and place of birth, nationality, passport number and issuance information, number and date of any Cameroon visas issued, number and date of issuance of the Cameroon ID Card (Permis de Sejour), and dates of residence and address while in the district. There is a fee for this service.
