Instructions how to get NBI clearance abroad.
1 Visit the nearest Philippine Consulate Office in the country you are in and ask for a Fingerprint Card Form. Fill up the personal data required on both sides of the card.
2 Request the assistance of the consulate to have your fingerprints impressed (rolled impression) on the appropriate spaces on the card. Make sure that the consular officer who fingerprinted you signed his name and official designation on the card.
3 If you are a married woman, write your name in the following order:
a.Your maiden surname (father's surname)
b.Your husband's surname
c.Your first name or given name
d.Your maternal surname (your mother's family name)
4 Attach your latest 2" x 2" photograph in the appropriate box in the Fingerprint Card Form. Your photo must be taken within three months before application, and must have a white background.
5 Upon completion of the above requirements, send the filled-up form to the following address: Director, National Bureau of Investigation, Taft Avenue, Ermita, 1000 Manila, Philippines. Before mailing, make sure to enclose a money order payable to the above individual, in the sum of Php 200.00 or any currency/bankdraft of its equivalent which is negotiable in the Philippines. The list of accredited banks include: Philippine National Bank (PNB), Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank Co. (HSBC), ANZ-A New Zealand Bank, Metrobank, and Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI).
6 Wait for the clearance certificate to be mailed to you. It normally takes a maximum of three days to process your application papers, excluding days of transit.
7 You may also send your accomplished form to a relative or representative in the Philippines together with your authorization letter. This document authorizes the person to transact business on your behalf. Have your relative or representative visit the office of the Electronic Data Processing Division (EDPD) in NBI Taft Avenue, Manila for further assistance.
8 When you receive your NBI clearance certificate, look for the embossed NBI dry seal on the lower left portion of the paper. This makes the document valid. Affix your thumb print on the space provided for before submitting it to any requesting office.
