It is also possible to execute such requests through the Ministry of Foreign relations by intermediation of our Ministry. However, it is considered that the application of the above written way would save both effort and work.

B- Obtaining Abroad Registry, Criminal Record and Address Information of Foreigners:
Nationals of the states member to the INTERPOL:
Requests with regard to obtaining registry-criminal records and address information of foreigners who are nationals of the states member to the INTERPOL should be conveyed directly to Security General Directorate Interpol Department without using our Ministry as mediator.
However;

Afghanistan, Germany, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Palestine, South Africa, India, the Netherlands, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somali, Russia and Greece, although members to the INTERPOL, do not provide such information through Interpol, therefore, requested addressed to these countries should be requested through judicial assistance.

To this end, letter rogatory should be issued by taking into consideration the samples linked above, and the letter rogatory should be submitted to our Ministry accompanied by copies of passport or identity of the person whose registry-criminal records or location of address are requested, bill of indictment, if available, and translation of the documents.

Nationals of the states not member to the INTERPOL:
For requests with regard to obtaining registry-criminal records and address information of foreigners who are nationals of the states not member to the INTERPOL, letter rogatory should be issued by taking into consideration the samples linked above, and the letter rogatory should be submitted to our Ministry accompanied by copies of passport or identity of the person whose registry-criminal records or location of address are requested, bill of indictment, if available, and translation of the documents.

Exceptional practices regarding some states:
