NBI Certificate with alias (A.K.A)

Hi guys, has anyone of you here ever secure an NBI Certificate after a change of name due to an annulment of marriage?

Here is my experience. My previous marriage was annulled and immediately thereafter, i filed for change of my surname from the surname of my ex husband to my maiden name. The different government agencies as well as my records of employment effected the change and i was issued the new IDs.

I went to the NBI office and ask how will i apply for an NBI Certificate with my new status.I was advised by the staff of the NBI to pay 2 applications, one using my maiden name and one using my ex husband's surname. Since it was already 11am and it was the cut off time, so was advised to come back at 1pm. Upon my return i went to the cashier and informed her that im requesting for 2 NBI certificates, one for my maiden name and one using my ex husband's surname. The cashier told me that i just have to apply for one NBI certificate and the form has a column for me to fill out my husband's name. I asked her " In that case, then the NBI Certificate will show my name using the ex husband's surname, which should not be the case. I want an NBI certificate with my maiden name in it, however, before i was using my ex husband's surname." She said i apply and pay only for one.

I was confused with what i heard, and so i filled out the forms and then used my maiden name. Of course, i was able to secure an NBI in my maiden name.

Days later, i read the blog of MikeinWyoming about his fiancee's NBI Certificate and all the intricacies and bureaucracies of securing it. Thanks to him, I learned that my NBI certificate has to bear my previous married name as A.K.A.

I went back to NBI and wrote on the column for alias/previous name, my complete previous name. To my surprise, when i claimed my NBI certificate, it does not show any alias or my previous name. So i talked to NBI staff again and he said "You didnt tell us that you want your alias to appear."

I told him " I filled out the column for alias/previous name"

He said " we just picked up the data on the first name and surname"

I replied " In that case, my filling out the column for alias/previous name is useless at all if you have not check it."

He answered "No, its not useless, we will change your certificate". And i was advised to come back after 10 days.Good thing i was no longer required to pay for the new certificate.

Today, i went to NBI and finally have my NBI certificate in my maiden name with an A.K.A /alias.

After my experience with the NSO and now with the NBI, i just wanted to make sure that the NBI has provided me with the correct one which i will present to the embassy soon. May i know for those who had an annulment and secured an NBI certificate, how does the a.k.a appear ? please refer to the choices:

1. A.K.A ( ex husband's surname ) (my first name ) y (my mother's surname name prior to her marriage to

to my dad)

or

2. A.K.A ( ex husband's surname ) ( my First name ) y ( my father's surname)

Your comment and help will be very much appreciated.

Hi,

If done correctly it should be #2. In our case the Consular Officer wrote out that she wanted to see it as #1! probably because she was confused. I think if the original one we handed in had an AKA as #2 she would not have rejected it. Either way - I suspect the Embassy will accept it. It is a game - korek ka dyan - the NBI does not pick up the name on the background check - so that value of the listing is meaningless.

Good luck!

Hi,

Hope your mom gets her visa soon. seems it take a long time before visa is issued once the consul requires another document. It would have been of great help if it was clearly indicated in the requirements that those with corrections/ previous name get the NBI certificate with alias.

Good luck!!
