  1. Do I still need to get a police clearance from my local police station even though I already have my NBI clearance? Help!

    Nope. No more need. The NBI clearance will suffice. You only need the police clearance from another country if you have lived in that country for atleast 6 months in the past

    You still need to get a police a clearance from a country where you lived for more than 6 months. The purpose of a police clearance is for them to know if you have criminal records.

    If I were you, I'd do the police clearance now so you have it once things start moving. Just check how long it is good for to make sure it won't expire before you get your interview.

    yes, you definitely require a police clearance. My bro-n-law was asked to submit a clearance from Qatar police even though it had been 20 yrs since he left that country. You will receive a letter from immigration that will detail the procedures on how to get one

    Packet 4 contains instructions for interview & medicals. It's better to prepare all necessary documents, or better ask your lawyer's advice. You may receive P4 sooner or later, no one knows. Police clearance is valid for 1 year only.
