What Exactly is an Interpol Red Notice?
An Interpol Red Notice is a request issued by the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) that serves as an extradition request to alert law enforcement agencies and border authorities for potential arrest during border crossings. This can often make individuals feel confined within the borders of a particular country and reluctant to travel for fear of detention.
Such notices are generally issued by nations looking to provisionally arrest someone with an extradition intention. Countries like Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova have, at times, used Red Notices to target political rivals or business figures, for example.
It’s vital to note that Interpol’s notice cannot facilitate an arrest or criminal prosecution. It is rather a global alert for wanted individuals for issues like financial crime, cross-border criminal investigations, and other relevant cases. It does not ensure those who have been issued one must be arrested.
In fact, Article 3 of Interpol’s Repository of Practice prohibits any intervention or measures of a religious, political, military, or racial character. All Red Notices must strictly adhere to the guidelines established by Interpol’s Constitution and Rules, keeping in line with the spirit of the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

FAQs about Interpol Red Notices
An INTERPOL Red Notice is a global alert sent out to notify member countries about a wanted person, typically for the purpose of extradition. It acts as a warning to arrest someone when they cross international borders. However, it’s crucial to understand that a Red Notice is not an international warrant to arrest someone.
Not necessarily. A red notice isn’t an arrest warrant. It is only a request for cooperation from local law enforcement. However, being issued one for your name is still very concerning. The decision to arrest someone based on a Red Notice is at the discretion of the individual country where the person is located. The policies or considerations may vary based on the country.
While it’s possible for Red Notices to arise from civil disputes or political motivations, they must adhere to INTERPOL’s Constitution and Rules. INTERPOL aims to ensure that Red Notices are issued for genuine criminal concerns and not misused for minor or personal matters.
If you believe a Red Notice has been issued against you incorrectly or unjustly, it’s advisable to consult with legal professionals familiar with INTERPOL procedures. They can assist in removing the Red Notice, communicating with INTERPOL, working with the requesting state to withdraw the arrest warrant, or engaging with authorities in your current country to clarify the notice’s status.
Yes. A Red Notice is an alert for member countries about a wanted individual and acts as a request for their arrest with a view to extradition. An extradition request is an official procedure in which one nation requests another to send back an individual to face legal charges or fulfil a prison term. While a Red Notice can lead to extradition proceedings, they are distinct processes.
