is there anyone here who experienced being asked during his/her interview about the explanation from the NBI due to the "remarks" on the clearance?

this is what is stated on the manila us embassy website..

NBI CLEARANCE: 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, married name, and any aliases or nicknames ever used, including different spellings of all names ever used. An official letter of explanation from the NBI is required for any notation of “No criminal record”, "No pending criminal case” or “With derogatory record.” NBI is located along Taft Avenue in Manila. You may contact NBI at (632) 523-82-31 to 38. For immigration purposes, an NBI clearance is considered valid only for one year from the date it is issued.

how can we get that official letter of explanation from the NBI??

anybody experience this..please share your inputs..

i called NBI and tried to speak like an american..lol! as there are alot of hearsays how these agencies accommodates questions well when the person is american..

i was transfered to a guy named Jim maniquis (i dont know if i got his name right) but maniquis is the last name. before i was transfered to him, i told the operator to transfer me to the director's line.

he then told me that as of *a certain date** sorry i forgot the date...ggrr... the us manila embassy and nbi had an agreement that the request for an official explanation will be made by the us embassy.. that we are not the ones who will request that from the NBI.

so atleast i have a peace of mind that its between the nbi and us embassy..and i can name this guy to the consul

Good job shes :D:thumbs: It's a good thing you have American accent :D It's crazy how fellow filipinos discriminate each other specially those who are working in government agencies like NSO. I read a thread here that the said office accommodates a foreigner caller and not filipinos. :hehe:

yes i really feel bad about it..i dont know if thats intentional or theyre not aware of their attitudes. but its really sad...sometimes i notice that when you get too polite over the phone or even talking personally to someone whos in a high position..they tend to intimidate you.. and i have learned of choosing when to use the "po and opo" when talking to someone..i feel that you have to speak with the level of the person youre talking to. weather it may sound impolite not using the "po and opo" whenever you talk to someone older than you...i think thats how it works..talk wit them in their level.

hi, this is zen. i was just browsing on the posts...if you still need any info on the NBI remark, it means that the NBI needs to explain in detail and in writing why you got the "no cirminal record, no pending criminal case or with derogatory remark" notation on your clearance, which could mean that your name is not 100% cleared for whatever reason, coz usually it should be just "no derogatory record", but don't worry it's just the embassy's way of making sure. hope this info helps a bit.

ok got my NBI "NO DEROGATORY RECORD" as what it says..whew! tnk God! no hassle...hehehe!

That's good news then. I was about to paste this for you.Lol! :P

Hi Rob,

My clearance has a NO CRIMINAL RECORD remark cos I had a previous dismissed case with my credit card. Before this year, all NO CRIMINAL RECORD, WITH DEROGATORY RECORD, NO CRIMINAL CONVICTION should be accompanied by an explanation letter from NBI (details of dismissed case or case filed). But when I went the main NBI office (I was referred there by the NBI guy from satellite office), he said that they no longer do individual explanation but they just wait for the USEM request which comes in bulk every Friday.

I was interviewed May 12, Monday. I called NBI on friday that week and true enough they received the request of USEM and they will then submit it to USEM the next Friday.

I was so nervous on how the consul will react on my case, that they might grill me about it even if it was dismissed, but to my surprise she just asked what it was and carried on the next topic. She then told me that they will just wait for the explanation of NBI and jokingly commented "and see if you didnt kill anyone". She said everythings good, everythings fine so I know I was approve pending the verification from NBI and NSO.

So my suggestion to you and your fiancee is to just wait for your visa as im sure they will issue you one after the verification with NBI. IF NBI gave you clearance with the NO CRIMINAL RECORD, that means there was a report but was dismissed already. NBI wouldnt give clearance anyway if there was still a pending case. So please tell her to NOT PAY ANYONE FROM NBI OR ANYONE AT ALL. I went to the process without having to pay for anything except to be polite with the NBI people and they were helpful with all my inquiries WITHOUT HAVING TO GIVE THEM ANY CENTAVO. Its their job anyway. Tell her to not be scared and do the right process, USEM HAS WAYS OF FINDING OUT IF ITS A FALSIFIED DOCUMENTS COS THEY HAVE CONNECTIONS INSIDE NBI (and this i know for a fact now). If USEM finds out that its falsified , your fiancee will be barred from entering USA forever. I am doubting that NBI guy she talked to, he will probably issue her a clearance with NO RECORDS ON FILE (which means no record/reports at all) but when USEM verifies, they will eventually find out its not matching the NBI records. I heard that they can do that with tourist visas (make a falsified NBI clearance that would look exactly the same), cos normally they dont background check on Tourist Visa applicants and they dont get the clearance but with Fiance Visas they do.

If your fiancee has any questions, please tell her to contact me, I would gladly help her at NO COST. I just want to help fellow fiance visa applicants, as much as I can.
