Default NBI Clearance or Police Clearance Certificate

Hi,

I am applying for a 189 Subclass and need to fulfill the requirement of a police clearance certificate from the countries I have stayed in for more than 12 months in last 10 years.
I have stayed in Philippines for around 13 months and I am seeking this clearance from the Philippines.
I got in touch with the Philippines Embassy and they asked me if I am seeking a NBI clearance or a Police Clearance Certificate. I am in a fix as I am unable to figure out which one will be the correct document.

Please help if anyone has any sort of info regarding this.

Thanks

I think it is NBI clearance as per DIBP website. https://www.border.gov.au/about/cont...ns/philippines

Did you manage to get it from India or had to go to Manila?

Hi,

Thanks for the link. I could manage to find the difference b/w the NBI clearance and the police clearance certificate in the Philippines. The former is issued on a national level and the PCC is issued by the local police station of your address.
Anyways, the process is to get application form filled and your fingerprints stamped on the application at the Philippines embassy/consulate. And then you have 2 options:
1. you can post the documentation to the NBI Building in Manila along with the fee and return postage.
2. you can ask somebody you know to apply on your behalf with an authorisation letter.

Somebody in the Philippines had applied for me and I got the clearance in 12 days. (just got it yesterday )

Hi,

I also stayed in Philippines for around 13 months.

Now, I am in India and need a PCC from Philippines.

Could someone suggest the procedure to apply for the PCC.

Thanks in advance.

2 more doubts.

I had called the Philippines Embassy today regarding the documents required for PCC from Philippines.

Acc. to them, they need below documents :
1. PAN Card
2. Voter ID Card
3. Driving Licence
4. Aadhar Card
5. Letter stating the duration of your stay in the Philippines
6. 2 photographs
7. Passport copies (all the Passport: old, new)
8. Philippines Visa
9. PCC from India
10. DD for Rs. 1975 (need to confirm the exact amount)

Then, take an appointment for fingerprint at Philippines Consulate. Once the fingerprints are done, they will send these documents to their counterpart in the Philippines. And then it will be processed in Philippines. The process in Philippines may take 15-20 days depending upon the documents.

@sameer_vbd
My doubt:
1. Do they need the PCC from India as well ??
2. How long is the PCC from Philippines valid?

That's too much of docs. Which consulate you are applying in?

1. They did not ask for it for me. I have attached all relevant passport pages photocopies.

2. 1 year from date of record.
