General Information
Procedures in securing A "Police Clearnance":-
1)Go to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to request for NBI Fingerprints.
 
Reminder: The NBI Fingerprints document is different from the NBI Clearance. Please remember to make this point very clear to the NBI Officer by stating the purpose for which you need your NBI Fingerprints.
 
2) After securing your NBI Fingerprints, proceed to the Department of Foreign Affairs to have your NBI Fingerprints authenticated or attested.

3)Following the completion of authentication from the Department of Foreign Affairs, SEND your DFA-authenticated NBI Fingerprints to the UAE Embassy thru WWWExpress/DHL. Authentication fee is P1,700.00 per authenticated document.
 
Reminder: WWWExpress/DHL is the only courier company accredited by the UAE Embassy to collect and bring your document/s to the Embassy for authentication. The courier/service fees are separate from the authentication fee of the Embassy.
 
4) After the document has been authenticated by the UAE Embassy, it shall be delivered back to you by WWWExpress/DHL, together with an application form from the UAE Ministry of Interior. Kindly fill up the form and attach the required documents that are specified for submission. 
 
IMPORTANT ADVICE:
 
Please consider sending your documents to a relative or friend in the UAE who can act as your representative and personally submit your documents to the Police Headquarters in the UAE. This is to ensure the safety of your authenticated documents and the convenience of having someone to call for follow-ups on the status of your application. An Authorization Letter or Special Power of Attorney should be given to your representative.
 
Likewise, once the UAE Police Clearance is released, please remind your representative to have it translated in English before sending the document to you.
 
PROCEDURES ON AUTHENTICATION
1)Documents for authentication should have the seal and red ribbon of the Department of Foreign Affairs.
2)Documents are sent ONLY thru our accredited courier company – WWW Express/DHL - with branches   nationwide.  The courier fee is separate from the authentication fee of the Embassy.3)      Authentication fee is P1,700.00 per red ribbon (of the DFA).
4)The authentication process takes seven (7) WORKING days.

Please be informed that the Marriage Contract and Birth Certificate should be authenticated by the Deparment of Foreign Affairs before their submission to the Embassy for authentication.
 
The Consular Section accommodates the personal filing of documents of UAE nationals, their wives and/or child.  However, please remember to bring the photocopy of the passport of your husband along with the DFA authenticated documents and your own passport.  (Your husband's photocopied passport will give you access to the Embassy.  Without it, you may not be allowed to enter the Embassy premises.)
 
*The authentication fee of P1,700 per document shall apply.*
 
All documents presented for authentication, particularly those involving UAE nationals are screened and approved/rejected in accordance with the laws of the UAE government.  Processing of documents for authentication usually take 2-3 working days.
 
Part II:
 
Following the authentication of the Marriage Contract and Birth Certificate, the rest of the procedures in securing a travel document for your son will be done by your husband in the UAE. 
 
After he receives the two (2) authenticated documents, he shall submit them to the Immigration Office in the UAE, and request for the issuance of a travel document for your son.
 
Part III.
 
The Embassy shall then receive a written advise from the UAE government, with the instructions to issue the travel document in favor of your son.
 
                              *The fee of P1,700 for the travel document shall apply.
After the issuance of the travel document, you and your son can depart Manila for the UAE.
 
PROCEDURES IN MARRIAGE CONTRACT /BIRTH CERTIFICATE AUTHENTICATION
1)A marriage contract and birth certificate are considered ORIGINAL when it originates from the National Statistics Office.
 
However, there are cases, your marriage contract and birth certificate were registered only last 6 months ago and there is a possibility that the document is not yet retrievable at the NSO.  If and when that happens, then the copy from the Office of the Civil Registrar where the marriage contract and birth certificate were filed can suffice provided it has the authentication/certified true copy seal of the Civil Registrar's Office.
 
2)The (registered) marriage contract and birth certificate are then presented or submitted to the Department of Foreign Affairs for authentication/attestation. 
 
3)After the release of the document from the DFA, you shall proceed to any WWWExpress / DHL branch nationwide to submit your authenticated document together with a clear photocopy, for authentication at the UAE Embassy in Manila. 
 
Reminder:  WWWExpress/DHL is the only courier company accredited by the UAE Embassy to collect and bring your document/s to the Embassy for authentication.  The courier/service fees are separate from the authentication fee of the Embassy.
 
4)The authentication fee per document (red ribbon) is P1,700.00.  You may pay in the form of Manager's Check payable to the UAE Embassy OR in cash at the WWWExpress/DHL outlet where the document is submitted.  Processing takes 5 to 7 working days.  The authenticated document shall be delivered to your address/location by WWWExpress/DHL
