What Is An INTERPOL Red Notice?

An INTERPOL Red Notice is a warning to arrest someone when they pass through immigration control. Its use means a person is a prisoner in a country, not able to leave due to fear of arrest. They’re issued at the request of countries to seek the provisional arrest of a person with a view to extradition.

It’s important to understand that a Red Notice is an international wanted person notice, and not an arrest warrant.

A Red Notice can come from politically motivated criminal proceedings or from civil disputes. Any notice must follow INTERPOL’s Constitution and Rules.
