Trying to do the 13a thing as well. Website says I don't need a NBI if I have been in the PI for less than 6 months but they tell me I do at the office.
If you don't have a police records check from your home state then after 6 months you have the option of an NBI clearance but I thought the Philippine Bureau of Immigration set this up along with your 13A.
Agree with you and what a pain having to travel long distances to get stuff done and Manila of all places with all its traffic. Do you live near a PBI Satellite Office? And if so possibly they'd have an NBI office also in that region.
There appear to be several satellite offices in your area:
BI Batangas Field Office, BI San Fernando District Office, BI Olongapo Field Office, BI Clark One Stop Shop, BI Subic One Stop Shop all can handle a 13A Visa they are all considered "Class A" offices. Annual Report
