How to Get an NBI Clearance at the Philippine Consulate, Dubai, UAE



I recently applied for an NBI clearance (for Filipino citizens) at the Philippine Consulate, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The consulate will only release a fingerprinted NBI Clearance card. Your representative will do the rest of the processing in the Philippines.

Based from my experience, the following are the steps in applying for an NBI clearance in Dubai:

Before going to the Philippine Consulate:

1. Print 2 copies of the SPA form (Special Power of Attorney) from the Philippine Consulate, Dubai website. The content of the 2 SPA forms should be exactly the same. The SPA form is also available at the Philippine Consulate in case you cannot print it prior to going there. It just saves time if you bring it filled out.

How to fill-out on a Special Power of Attorney form (SPA) from Philippine Embassy or Consulate

For married couples, you can jointly authorize a representative to process your NBI clearance. So you will write both your names and passport numbers on the form.

Fill out 2 SPA forms
2. Prepare 5 photocopies of your passport - 2 copies will be attached to the NBI clearance card,  2 copies will be for the SPA and 1 copy to be given at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Dubai for the fingerprinting.

3. Prepare 1 photocopy of your visa - to be given at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Dubai for the fingerprinting.

4. Bring a 2x2 picture with white background - for the NBI card

5. Bring a black ball pen.

6. Prepare 340 AED - (110 AED for the fingerprinting charge; 100 AED for the NBI clearance form processing; 100 AED for the SPA processing; 15 AED for the SPA courier; 15 AED for the NBI clearance courier)

7. Bring your original passport for identification.


At the Philippine Consulate:

1. Get 1 NBI Clearance card and 2 SPA forms
- Once you enter the gate of the Philippine Consulate, go to the building at the right side. When you get inside, go to your left, then left again. The counter that gives out the SPA and NBI form is located there. (You can also just ask how to get around)

Get 1 NBI clearance card from the Philippine Consulate, Dubai 

2. Fill out the NBI card (All capital letters using a black ball pen and write clearly). You need the following information: full name, sex, civil status, date of birth, place of birth, present address, purpose, height, weight, scars or marks, citizenship, occupation, education attainment, husband/wife, place of birth, father with place of birth, mother with place of birth.

3. Fill out the 2 SPA forms - in case you didn't print it prior to coming to the Philippine Consulate


Go to The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Dubai for Fingerprinting:

The CID office is located across Al Mulla Plaza. Parking is very limited. Al Qiyadah green line metro station is right in front of the CID office.

Al Qiyadah Metro Station


This is where you will have your fingerprints taken. They will get your manual (ink) and digital fingerprints. The cost for fingerprinting is 110 AED.

Go Back to the Philippine Consulate after Fingerprinting:

1. Have your fingerprinted NBI Clearance card photocopied (2 copies front, 2 copies back) - There is a photocopy service at the Philippine Consulate. It costs 1 AED per copy.

2. Queue in the window for NBI clearance processing. They will ask for:

    - Your passport for identification

    - Original fingerprinted NBI clearance card + 2 photocopies of the NBI clearance card + 2 photocopies of your passport

    - 2 SPA + 2 photocopies of your passport

(Note: you will be given separate receipts because the NBI clearance and SPA have different release dates)

price list/charges for services at the Philippine Consulate, Dubai

Pay for the Empost Courier Service

The courier counter is just beside the window where you submitted the documents. This service is mandatory so you cannot go back at the consulate to pick up your documents even after the release date. You will pay 15 AED per document even if they will be delivered at the same address. The staff explained that this is because the documents have different release dates.

Expect your documents to be delivered approximately about 2-3 days after the release dates listed at the bottom part of the receipt.


Go to the Cashier

The cashier is located at the detached building behind the building where you submitted your documents (or you can ask around where it is).

 Prepare 200 AED (100 AED payment for SPA +100 AED payment for NBI clearance).

After your payment, the cashier will give you the receipt with a date of release of your documents. Add about 2-3 days from the release dates and your documents will be delivered to you.

You will be the one who will send the NBI clearance fingerprinted card and the SPA form to your representative in the Philippines who will to transact on your behalf for the processing of your NBI clearance.

    1. Yung ibibigay galing dubai consulate yung nbi clearance blue card na may fingerprint pa. di nila i red ribbon yung fingerprinted card kasi hindi pa yon yung clearance na nagsasabi na wala kang kaso sa pinas. Kailangan kunin yung clearance sa nbi office sa pinas kapag na submit na yung card na may fingerprint.

  17. Akala ko yung nbi clearance na green paper na ang ma release sa philippine consulate dito sa dubai. Nid pa pala ipalakad sa philippines kasi yung fingerprinted lang makuha dito. Kalurkey!

  19. Hi where can i get a money order in Dubai? pls help

  20. Hi Admin,
    Please help me. I’m currently working and living in Dubai for almost 2 years now. Kailangan ko po kasi yung NBI clearance ko for visa related purposes. I went to Philippine Consulate dito sa Dubai to get necessarry documents so my mother can process my NBI in my behalf. Meron po akong Special Power of Attorney at kinuha din po nila ang finger print ko manually using the blue form where all my details na din po. Pati na din yung passport copy ko. I followed all the necessary steps po. Ang sabi sa Consulate ipadala ko na po sa Philippines and my representative (which is my mom) can obtain the NBI for me. But the thing is when she went to the NBI office located in Cebu kasi taga doon po ako. They denied her and sabi nila ay sa Manila daw po dapat kunin ang NBI ko since I’m an OFW and if my mother want daw po they can process that application but they are asking for 3 thousand pesos from her which is a clear red tape. They even told my mom na it takes 10 working days pa daw before they can release my NBI if we push through with what they said. So admin nalilito na po ako kung paano ko po makukuha ang NBI ko. I have all my documents but it seems like they are of no used because of this corrupt officials wanting to milk money from OFW like me. Please help me po. Thank you and God bless po.
