      Just a friendly piece of advice, If you’re a foreignerl you must go to the NBI on Avenue of the Americas. Absolutely no exceptions. Don’t do like I did and go to a local NBI office and waste a half day finding out that you have to go to the Avenue of the Americas.

    Hello, may instruction po ang US Embassy stating that “An official letter of explanation from the NBI is required for any notation of “No criminal record” or “No pending case”. Ang nakalagay po sa NBI clearance ko is “No derogatory record”. Kaylangan ko po bang kumuha ng letter galing NBI? If so, kanino po ako mag rerequest?
