The NBI Clearance Application Process in Canada

The NBI Clearance program is the best place to get your NBI clearance in Canada. Is it sometimes necessary to obtain a copy of an NBI clearance? Where do you go if you aren’t in the Philippines? Is it in Canada? Can a Canadian obtain an NBI clearance?

Would you mind telling me how you did it? Upon learning you must provide a copy of your NBI clearance, you’ll ask yourself these few questions. There are no criminal records in the Philippines, so you are free to start hiding unless you have been convicted. We have a tutorial for you if you do not know how to do this.

I’m not sure what’s the purpose of your application, but for the sake of this tutorial, we’ll just assume that it is for your employment. The NBI clearance and Philippine passport are important requirements for employment abroad and locally.

The last nine months have been spent working as a software developer at Dexter. During my first couple of months at the company, I wrote two blog posts: one on landing the job and the other on self-positioning. As a developer, it was natural for me to want to get a job, keep it, and grow.

What Are The NBI Clearance Requirements?

Canada’s NBI Clearance application requirements are quite straightforward. Please provide the following information:

  • An accomplished NBI Clearance Form No. 5

  • a 2” x 2” photograph with white background, taken within three months before to the application

  • and lastly, photocopies of your Philippine Passport

You may also need to provide additional Valid IDs for NBI Clearance (optional).

  2. Please confirm whether the specific Consulate has been assigned the task of processing NBI Clearance Applications. The Philippine Consulate office does not process NBI Clearance Applications, so we don’t want to be blamed for sending an applicant home.

A copy of the Fingerprint Card No. 5 is what you are looking for (also known as the NBI Clearance Form No. 5). Upon receiving this form, make sure you fill it out. On both sides of the application form you need to handwrite personal information.
