Police Clearance

>> Sunday, November 29, 2009

Part of your requirement for your application for Permanent Residents Visa application are Police Clearances/Criminal Checks.


Both from your current country of residence as well as countries where you have stayed for 6 months or more.

Police Clarence vary in form in each country of territory and may be called police clearance certificates, good conduct certificates, judicial record extracts, etc. Security checks, also known as police certificates, are required to determine if applicants have a criminal record. They also help visa officers make sure applicants are not a security risk to Canada.

In the Philippines applicants for Permanent Residents Visa will be required to secure an NBI Clearance in the second stage of the application process. To obtain an NBI clearance you may check the frequently asked questions page of the NBI website (click on the link).

If you are currently working abroad please click on the following link to find out how you can satisfy this requirement:

NBI Clearance from Abroad

In you are currently working abroad; has experience in working abroad; stayed abroad as a tourist for more than 6 months, you will also be required to obtain a separate Police Clearance from said Country.

To find out how to obtain a police clearance for said experience please visit the website of the Citizenship and Immigration Canada by clicking on the following link:

Obtaining Police Clearance

One of the basic problems encountered during this stage is that the Police clearance is only available for current residents or those who are still in contract working either as a worker or a permanent resident.

If you are a Filipino applicant currently residing in the Philippines and is being asked for a Police Clearance by the Canadian Visa Office in Manila, for your experience in working in another country in the past, you may seek the help of Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant and Workers Affairs (OUMWA).

Go to the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila. OUMWA will help you get the Police Clearance. The process may take 30-60 days.

NBI Clearance

The Visa Office handling your application will require you to update your documents prior to coming up with a decision on your permanent residence visa application, one of the requirements that you will need to submit is the NBI Clearance.

Since a large volume of our clients are overseas contract workers, one of the commonly asked question is, how to get their NBI Clearance from abroad.

Here are the instructions from NBI website:


To get an NBI Clearance from abroad, here's what you should do:

You can visit the nearest Philippine Consulate Office and asked for a Fingerprint Card Form.

  • Fingerprint Card Form – fill up the personal data called for on both sides of this card truthfully and legibly.
  • Request the assistance/endorsement of the nearest Philippines Consulate Office for the police agency in your locality to have your fingerprints impressed (ROLLED IMPRESSION) on the appropriate spaces. The officer/person who fingerprinted you should sign his name state his official designation on the space provided for the purpose in the card.
  • In case you are a married woman, the order of writing your name is as follows:
  • -Your maiden surname (father’s surname).
  • -Your husband’s surname.
  • -Your first name or given name.
  • -Your maternal surname (family name of your mother)
  • Attach a latest copy of your 2”x2” photograph (white background), taken within three (3) months before this application at the appropriate box in the fingerprint card form.

Upon completion of this requirement, send back your form to NBI and enclose Money Order in the sum of Php 200.00 or any currency/bankdraft of its equivalent which is negotiable in the Philippines payable to the Director, National Bureau of Investigation, Taft Avenue, Ermita 1000 Manila, Philippines.

Not just Nurses, College Instructors too!

>> Tuesday, November 17, 2009


(Visa Grantee MS. Joy Delfin with Ms. Evangeline Naron and Ms. Maribel Naron of CIC)

A lot of you may think that only Registered Nurse's applications for Permanent Residents Visa are being processed faster. That is why, here's a case of a College Instructor who received her visa six months after submission of supporting documents to Canadian Visa Office in Manila.


People never plan to fail. They just fail to plan. But Ms. Joy Delfin, a College Instructor, is different.

She wanted to go to Canada as a Permanent Resident. She went to us and together we made a plan. Pursued the plan up until she got the Visa.

Just like Mr. Bantugan(Visa Grantee of the previous post), Ms. Joy Delfin decided to file an application for Permanent Resident Visa through Federal Skilled Worker program despite being told that the process may take about 3-5 years. She filed her application on August 20, 2008 under the Simplified Application Process.

This was before the New Regulations for Federal skilled Worker applications was revised by the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Which was published only November of 2008.

To her surprise, Ms. Joy Delfin received a positive assessment from Centralized Intake Office (CIO) on Jan 17, 2009 and was able to submit her supporting documents right away, last May 12, 2009. On Nov 9, 2009, she received her Permanent Resident Visa for Canada.

You can only really take advantage of the current processing speed, while the conditions are still in your Favor. We can only really help you with your application when you are still qualified to apply.

If you have work experience in one or more occupations in the 38 high demand occupations, and is qualified in the Canadian Selection Criteria(Points System), there is no doubt that now is the best time for you to apply.

You will not regret getting a Permanent Residents Visa for Canada, but you may regret the time when you look back and think what might have it been if you did apply.
