13A Police Clearance Question

Recommended Posts

Posted

Sorry guys I know that is on here somewhere but I cannot find it. A good friend of mine from Pampanga (Manila) wants to get a 13A. He keeps getting told in the bi in Manila that he needs police clearance I have said no you don`t but that`s what they tell him and he is not thick but he can only go on what he is told. So could the American expats maybe clear this up. Many thanks in advance.

Let a UK member who has just done it tell you If you have been here under 6 months you need a police Clearance from you own Country or from the last country you lived in + an NBI Clearance no older that 3 months old at your active address here

 

If you have been here over 6 months Just an NBI Clearance no older than 3 months.+ Your Latest BI Clearance

 

JP :thumbsup:

 

 BTW should you go on a Visa Run it all Starts again you become again in the 6 month Rule.

What if you are here balikbayan over 6 months?  Just the NBI Clearance? Or must you convert to a tourist visa to get a BI Clearance Certificate?

From the horse's mouth

 

No need for a police clearance, but you need to secure an NBI clearance as a requirement for a 13A visa category
