How to secure a good conduct certificate in Dubai

Looking for a job in Dubai? The UAE government has passed a new law where expats need to obtain a Criminal Record Verification or Certificate of Good Conduct for the purpose of work, study, immigration, marriage and others.  In the Philippines, this is the same as No Criminal Record from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) or NBI Clearance.


How to secure a good conduct certificate (NBI Clearance) from the Philippines:

1. Get an NBI Clearance Application Form (Form No. 5) from the Philippine Consulate in Dubai, free of charge.
2. Fill out the form and visit the nearest police station to secure your biometrics (fingerprints). Get the signature of the police officer on your form.
3. After completing your form & biometrics, visit the Philippine Consulate in Dubai to have the NBI Form No. 5 notarised.
a. Apply for a Special Power of Attorney (SPA) authorising your representative in the Philippines to submit the form to the NBI.
b. Duration of the process will take up to four (4) days as per the Philippine Consulate’s website.
c. The fee is AED 100.

4. Once the clearance is released, your representative can visit the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and get the form authenticated followed by attestation at the UAE Embassy in Manila.
5. Finally, the NBI Clearance form (authenticated and attested) can be sent back in the UAE by your representative.


Along with your NBI Clearance Application Form, you need the following documents ready:
1. One (1) 2x2 ID photo with white background, attached to the NBI Form.
2. Four (4) copies of the applicant’s passport copy.
3. Completed NBI Form with biometrics and police officer’s signature.
