I-130 and NBI Clearance Expired

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have filed I-130 for my wife. She studied in Philippines as a foreign national for about 6 years. She took NBI clearance before returning back to home country in 2017 ? NBI Clearance expired (was valid until)  June of 2018. She has not been back to Philippines after she finished her studies in 2017. On the other hand, I have received NOA1, we are waiting on NOA2, In NOA2 stage, we have to submit NBI clearance for her duration of time spent in Philippines as student.

 

My question is : 1. Does she need to make new NBI clearance for NOA2 since it expired or will it the same NBI clearance be OK ?

2. She is a foreign national who studied in Philippines,  what are her options to make a new NBI clearance without revisiting Philippines if new NBI clearance is required?

 

I would really appreciate your input :)

 

Thank You!!!

The NBI is required for phase 2, the actual NVC portion of the application, which asks for the criminal history of the beneficiary. It will not impact the I-130 in any way. 
 

if you filed recently, you have quite a bit of time, so I would contact a Philippines foreign mission and inquire getting one through the foreign mission.  The rule of thumb is your police records and criminal history documents should be a maximum of 1 year old, so check your estimated NOA2 date, and wait to apply for the NBI until you are closer to that date.

Consular officers are not interested in document expiration.  They only require it to have been obtained recently enough for their own standards.  If it the NBI report was secured shortly before leaving the Philippines permanently, it will be accepted, even if it were several years old.
