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.
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.
We will mail to you the corresponding clearance certificate after we have processed your application papers.
Upon receipt of your clearance certificate, please examine it for the presence of the embossed NBI DRY SEAL at its lower left portion, the clearance is invalid without it. Also, you must affix your clear and properly taken THUMBPRINT on the space provided for it in the clearance certificate before submitting it to your end-user, otherwise, your clearance will be subjected for further verification/authentication and will cause the delay of your immigration requirements.
To RENEW your NBI Clearance from abroad, here's what you should do:
Just send your previously issued clearance, attach a latest copy of your 2”x 2” photograph (white background), taken within three (3) months 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.
