NBI clearance and "no criminal record"

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Jawaree, please read up more on the Philippines board. "No criminal record" is one of the responses you hope to not get:

6. 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 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 web site is http://www.nbi.gov.ph.

My fiancee will be picking up her NBI clearance on Thursday. If it says "no criminal record", what should she do? Can she request a letter of explanation while she's there?

No. She will have to wait until the interview, NBI will not issue an explanation letter until the embassy requests it and the embassy will not request it until they review the NBI document.

It says she has no criminal record...so no explanation necessary

Wrong. You really need to read the embassy instructions letter. http://photos.state.gov/libraries/manila/1178798/packets/K1%20and%20K2%20Interview%20Preparation%20Instructions%20-%20English%20_updated%2010%20SEP%202014_.pdf

NO CRIMINAL RECORD and NO CASE PENDING means she is in the NBI's database for a possible past offense or for someone else who has a similar name.

If her NBI says either of those two phrases, she needs to return to the NBI and request a letter of explanation as to WHAT she is in the database for. If she can't get a letter (which more times then not) then she needs an explanation (verbal will do) so she can make any corrective action prior to the interview. Sometimes some are in the database because someone has a similar name or has a name like hers and what they did, created the "hit" for her. 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. No resolving the problem will create a delay for the visa issuance.

My wife had some prior cases that were dismissed by the court (over 10 years ago) but NBI did not have it in their records. This is what she found out after getting her NBI. She asked the agent and he showed where some were showing dismissed and others were still "open". Hence, after the discovery, she returned to her local court house and the dug up all the cases that were related and she was able to show NBI that her cases were cleared/dismissed. She couldn't seem to get NBI to move fast enough (they had 2 plus months prior to the visa interview at USEM) to update their database so hence we received a 221(g) at her interview. Week later she got an interview with NBI and flew back to Manila to clear her name. Once cleared NBI produced and sent to USEM a letter explaining that her name was "clear". Two weeks later her Visa was issued.

If her form says something like NO RECORD ON FILE or NO DEROGATORY RECORD then she has nothing to worry about.

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.

if you have a derogatory record can you still get a police clearance?

You need the NBI, if it shows you have a derogatory record the embassy will most likely request a letter of explanation from NBI.   From their the embassy will make their evaluation.
