Applying for 13a visa, need police clearance

9 years ago
Greetings all. After researching for days I have finally decided to sign up for this forum.

Quick story: Met a wonderful Filippa woman awhile ago and things have gone great. I visited her a few times and she came to see my country and meet my family, (USA). We decided to live in the Philippines due to our life vision. We are both relatively young. I am 31, and she is 29. We are getting married in September this year and I am set to leave here August 31st.

Now my question is regarding the police clearance form. I have called the Philippine Embassy in NYC multiple times and was told all I need is a simple police clearance form. I went to my local police station and they have never heard of this form but they were able to give me a letterhead write up of indicating that I have no criminal record in the town I have lived in for 8 years now. The person I spoke to at the embassy is saying this is enough, but for some reason I am doubting this. So before I spend the money to fly down to NYC I wanted to ask you guys?

What is this police clearance form??

Thanks

William Russell
