Suspension of the Embassy's NBI Fingerprinting services in compliance with the New Zealand government
The Embassy is temporarily suspending its NBI Fingerprinting services in view of prevailing New Zealand Government rules on keeping workplaces safe against COVID-19.
For those near Christchurch, you may book an NBI fingerprinting appointment with the Christchurch Consulate: https://philippineconsulatechristchurch.setmore.com/
For those near Auckland, kindly wait for the Auckland Consulate to reopen and also book an appointment first: https://phlconauckland.appointy.com/default.aspx
Kindly note that our Honorary Consuls are New Zealand volunteers/lawyers, who are from law firms with strict COVID-19 protocols, which is why you need to book an appointment.
You may also obtain fingerprinting at Kiwibank. Please check this link: https://www.kiwibank.co.nz/contact-us/support-hub/branch-and-atms/fingerprinting-services/. A minimum fee of $50 will be charged.
Meanwhile, feedback has been received from a client that NZ Police Stations have stopped providing NBI fingerprinting services. You may double-check with the NZ Police stations in your area.
Those who need NBI forms may send their request via courier to the Embassy:
Embassy of the Philippines
50 Hobson Street, Thorndon, Wellington, 6011
Please send the following in a courier bag with “Signature required” sticker:
- Request for NBI form
- Self-addressed courier bag (so the Embassy knows where to mail your NBI form)
- photocopies of your passport and other identification card/s.
