23 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I have checked online, I got this info from CFO website. Are there additional requirements aside from what they posted in their website ? I would like to get ready in advance as I only have 1 1/2 days to attend CFO seminar in Manila before flight to the states. Thank you for sharing.

Requirements for Attendance to Guidance and Counseling Program

Two (2) valid identification cards (IDs) with photograph;

Duly completed guidance and counseling form;

If married, certified true copy and photocopy of marriage contract on security paper from the National Statistics Office, or Local Civil Registry Offices; or original and photocopy of marriage contract duly authenticated by the Philippine Embassy/ Consulate (if married abroad)

Other documents as may be required by the counselors; and (what are other docs ???)

Payment of P250.00 counseling fee.

I called 2 weeks ago and asked they if it's really necessary that my husband needs to attend the seminar too and they said "Not necessary" just bring the following:

>2 valid ID's

>Marriage Cert NSO Authenticated

>NBI Clearance

>If you are below 24 years old they need to see the Parent's Advise letter also photocopy ID of parents with signature in it.

>CENOMAR and Birth Certificate of both spouses.

I just got my NBI last week but I need another ID that's why I can't go yet. Good Luck!

When do you plan to go to attend the seminar? We might bump into each other lol

Goodluck!!!!

Thank you for replying. Is there a need for an NBI clearance for my daughter 13 y/o ? She is also required to attend Peer Counseling on same date. But she doesn't have NBI as it wasn't required at the interview at USEM. Just learned this now that NBI is also needed during CFO, but my daughter doesn't have one.

Would they accept photocopy of NBI clearance ? I submitted my original copy to the USEM ? I don't have time anymore to get original copy from NBI as well as one for my daughter. Worried.....thanks for your time replying. God bless

Hi Azteca, you can submit photocopy during interview at USEM, but you need to bring the original copy to show it. In my case, I submitted all original NSO copies and even my NBI so they won't ask more questions. Lol.. I was bit nervous at the beginning of the interview, Lol.. I just kept photocopies of all my paperwork. And, now having problem with the CFO on my NBI clearance as I only have photocopy left with me. Other documents I still have NSO original copies. I hope they will accept my NBI photocopy, no more time to get a new one. Good luck to your interview !

Hi There!

I think CFO needs to see those originals but they won't be keeping them, for comparison only. Bring also photocopies to CFO. Just be fully ready.

I have not been into the process of going to the embassy so I don't know if they need to keep the originals too. Let me Know,okay?

I don't think they will ask NBI for your daughter. I submitted a photocopy and it was fine. As I have said earlier I had my CFO in Cebu and it might be different from manila. just bring the documents you think necessary to be sure.

had my cfo last wednesday (PRISM) and the only time they asked for an ID was when i went to the other building to get my sticker. the picture was for BDO (if you want to open a back account). they never asked me for my NBI, birth certificate, pictures and cenomar. also don't forget the maiden name of your sweetheart's mom because they will ask that. oh and i had my visa already i'm not sure if it's the same for those with no visa yet.


i-129f sent - 5/25/11

Thanks for the update. We are planning to go to PRISM, and we are also waiting until the visa arrives from the embassy.
