  1. Just an update. I had my wife submit her NBI clearance "as is" - with no thumbprint and signature and it was accepted without any issues.
  2. Hello Everyone, My wife currently lives in Japan and have successfully obtained a Philippine NBI Clearance without having to be physically present. However, the NBI Clerance she received has no thumbprint and signature. Are we supposed to submit the NBI Clearance as is or is she supposed to affix her thumbprint and signature on it? We appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.
  3. Thanks Hank. I also found the process for Tokyo location: https://tokyo.philembassy.net/consular-section/services/miscellaneous/nbi-clearance/
  4. Hi Hank, Thanks for the quick response. The initial NBI clearance application was done online. However, her personal appearance was required. She had to fly from Japan to Philippines complete the process. Do you know if she would need to again appear personally for the updated NBI clearance application?
  5. My wife successfully applied for and received an NBI clearance back in February 2019. However, US Embassy is asking for one with her divorced name. We're confused as how to move forward with the new application. Should we: Apply for a totally separate NBI clearance under her previous married name OR Should we apply for an updated NBI clearance and just add her previous married name under the "AKA/Other name" field of the application form. We're thinking that we should submit another application and the only difference will be adding her previously married name under the "AKA/Other Name" field of the application form. However, my additional questions are: Will the AKA/Other Name show in the actual NBI Clearance? Is personal appearance needed when applying for an updated NBI Clearance? I look forward to hearing from anybody. Thank you in advance.
  6. I had the same question and found the answer below: "Applicants should only send a photocopy of the sealed envelope to the National Visa Center, but not the actual police certificate itself."
