I am presently working abroad. How can I get NBI Clearance without going home to the Philippines?

You can visit the nearest Philippine Consulate Office and ask for a Fingerprint Card Form.

  • Fingerprint Card Form - fill up the personal data called for on both sides of this card truthfully and legibly.
  • Request the assistance/endorsement of the nearest Philippines Consulate Office for the police agency in your locality to have your fingerprints impressed (ROLLED IMPRESSION) on the appropriate spaces. The officer/person who fingerprinted you should sign his name state his official designation on the space provided for the purpose in the card.
  • In case you are a married woman, the order of writing your name is as follows:
    1. Your maiden surname (father's surname).
    2. Your husband's surname.
    3. Your first name or given name.
