Even when Filipinos are already working abroad, NBI clearance, the document that serves as proof a Filipino citizen is cleared of any criminal record, is still occasionally required for documentation of work, migration or other legal purpose.
That is why Philippine consulates and embassies abroad have facilities that receive applications for NBI clearance.
In Dubai, the process is straightforward.
- Photocopy of completed NBI Form (Form available at the Consulate General in Dubai).
- Copy of applicant’s passport
- Procedures for the Issuance of National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Clearance Certificate
- Payment of AED100 per document
