NBI Card Fingerprinting


How the Embassy can assist with NBI clearances

The NBI form is not a consular document. However, the Philippine Embassy assists Filipinos who are applying for NBI clearance in terms of fingerprinting on the card form. Upon completion of the requirements below, the applicant sends the form, together with a special power of attorney, to his/her authorized representative in the Philippines, who will process the clearance with the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on your behalf.

Procedure in the Embassy:

An appointment is required. Please email consular.sgpe@gmail.com. Entitle your email with the subject “NBI Fingerprinting Appointment”, and in the message state the date when you can come over to the Embassy. We will reply to your email and confirm the availability of this slot.The slots for NBI fingerprinting are open Monday to Friday, from 4pm to 5pm only.

On the date of your appointment, and at the set time period, show a printout of the email confirmation at the Reception Desk at the entrance of the Embassy. You will be given an NBI card form; fill up the personal data as instructed.

For married women, please be advised of the order of writing your name as follows:
          Your maiden surname (father’s surname).
Your husband’s surname.
Your first name or given name.
Your maternal surname (family name of your mother).
      

Proceed to the Window 12, to have the fingerprint card checked.

Your fingerprints will be impressed on the appropriate spaces by rolled impression. The consular officer who fingerprinted you will sign his name and state his official designation.

Attach your latest 2”x 2” photograph (2 pieces, white background), taken within three (3) months before application at the appropriate box in the fingerprint card form. Write your name and place your signature at the back of these photographs.

As stated above, send the form to your authorized representative in the Philippines, who will process the clearance with the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on your behalf. More information can be obtained at: www.nbi.gov.ph

NOTE: Effective 01 July 2014, the Philippine Embassy will be charging a standard consular fee of SGD 42.50 for acknowledging the fingerprinting of the NBI clearance.
