Clearance Letters/Local Records Check

Clearance letters are typically used for adoption, visa/passport or immigration purposes.

The applicant may come to the department with valid picture identification and complete an Application for Local Records Check form, available at the Records counter. A form must be completed by each person applying for a clearance letter. The charge for each letter is $53.00 (exact cash or check payable to "City of Pacifica"). These letters can be notarized at the request of the applicant. Please allow 2-5 days for processing a clearance letter.
