NBI Clearance with "No Derogatory Record"

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance is the K1 Visa applicant and she has already received her NBI Clearance (Green Form). She had informed me that her NBI Clearance has a notation that says "No Derogatory Record". My fiancé absolutely does NOT have a criminal record therefore, I am presuming that the notation of “No Derogatory Record” on her NBI clearance is the appropriate and correct notation on her NBI clearance and is what the U.S. consular must see on her NBI Clearance in order to issue the K1 Visa to her. Am I correct on this or does anyone accurately know otherwise?

NBI CLEARANCE (Green Form). Applicants aged 16 years and older must have a valid Record Clearance (for travel abroad purposes) from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). Clearances should be in the applicant’s current name, birth certificate name, maiden name and any aliases or nicknames used, including different spellings you have used of those names. An official letter of explanation from the NBI is required for any notation of "No criminal record" or "No pending case". For immigration purposes, an NBI clearance is valid for one (1) year from the date it was issued. The NBI website is http://www.nbi.gov.ph.

Be sure you have used all AKA's when getting the NBI. If you don't then you will receive a 221(g) and have to spend an additional 2 weeks and a return to the Manila NBI to clear your name and get a new NBI.

Once you receive your copy of the NBI report look it over for spelling and miss information. You'll want to inquire right away, what the NBI procedures are to correct. If your document states NO CRIMINAL RECORD and NO CASE PENDING means you're in the NBI's database for a possible past offense or it's common for someone else who has a similar name that can be mixed with your NBI report.

Typically if the NBI report says either of those two phrases, you need to return to the NBI and request a letter of explanation as to WHAT is in the database for your record. If you can't get a letter then you will need an explanation (verbal will do) so you can make any corrective action prior to the interview. Sometimes some you're in the database because someone has a similar name or has a name like yours and what they did, created the "hit" for you. Don't panic, but get to the bottom of the problem and resolve the issue(s) prior to the interview if possible. Be stern in your request as sometimes you will be sent away with nothing. Not resolving the problem will create a delay for the visa issuance.

If your form says something like NO RECORD ON FILE or NO DEROGATORY RECORD then you have nothing to worry about as you have a clean record and should not be an issue at your interview.

You can not get a letter of explanation from NBI, USEM has to request it. So if your NBI states NO CRIMINAL RECORD and NO CASE PENDING expect a 221g and 2-4 weeks of added delay in the processing.

if the remarks on your nbi clearance is:

NO RECORD ON FILE - it is issued for those who requested for their nbi clearance for the first time

NO DEROGATORY RECORD - is issued upon renewal of nbi clearance but means clean record also and should be acceptable.

NO CRIMINAL RECORD - means there is a civil case/record on file
