Interpol Red Notice

A red notice is an alert issued by Interpol at the request of one of its member countries, indicating that the country seeks the individual’s provisional arrest with a view to extradition. Red notices are recorded on Interpol’s databases for instant circulation to police forces and border agencies globally. Sometimes a client may not be the subject of extradition proceedings but is concerned about the risk of arrest on a red notice if an international border is crossed. Whilst some red notices will be published on the Interpol website, often a person will be unaware that a notice has been issued.

The practical and reputational impact of an extant red notice is devastating and far-reaching. It can render individuals virtual prisoners in their country of residence. Some of the consequences of such notice can be: closure of bank accounts due to anti-money laundering laws, compulsory disclosures by regulated persons, etc.
