How To Get an NBI Clearance in Singapore?

If the Canadian Embassy requests a copy of your NBI clearance, usually they will ask for a time limit of 1 to 2 months for you to submit.

The process will be easy if you are in the Philippines and given that you have no previous criminal record or have the same name (namesake) with a criminal record.  If you do, the result will show in the computer as "WITH HIT".

Hi, just want to ask, the canadian immigration asked me already the NBI and i asked my mom to secure my NBI in behlaf of me in the phil. i already have the certificate but without the thumb print(which is one of the requirement of the immigration) does the nbi have an electronic copy of my thumb print since i sent it already attached to the application form? thanks.

Hi Sir Ben, im ready submit my documents to CIC, do i need to submit NBI clearance together or wait until they requested me to submit the NBI clearance. Because i just booked an appointment to Phil Embassy for NBI thumb printing and it may takes a while for me to secure the clearance. Thank you sir

Hi Rolando, a quick question, did CIC requested for it or is it listed in the requirements? If not, do not include what is not asked.

Hello, have you send your NBI clearance to CIC without thumbprint? Since I am working abroad I asked my sister to secure a clearance in behalf of me in the Philippines. Is it okay to send as is (without thumbprint) or I need to affix my thumbprint and signature myself?
