Post Final Clearance Even If Service Has Not Completed Reply with quote
Hi,

I obtained my travel clearance and left Philippines last year. Fortunately, I found a job abroad, where I am working now. I am going home on Christmas thus I would have to clear everything so that I can go back to my work abroad after the holidays. I only served my obligation for 3 years out of the 5 years required. I paid a surety bond before I left. However, they informed me that I would need to settle the bond for my final clearance first before I can refund the amount I paid for my temporary clearance for travel. Does anyone of you know how much I would need to pay? Will I be required to pay the full amount or just the number of years I did not serve, i.e. 2 years? How long does it usually take to process the final clearance? I doubt I can process it myself when I go home on Christmas season since most of the dates I know would be declare as holidays - meaning non-working days. I am planning to ask my dad to process the final clearance for me since he was also a signee in the contract. I can just process the refund for the travel clearance bond before I leave. My concern and priority now is to obtain my clearance before I go back abroad on first week January, to avoid hassle or any delays on my return.

Please let me know if anyone has idea, better suggestions, and answers to my questions. I will really appreciate it. Thanks a lot!

Only the number of years you did not serve. They will calculate it for you. You just need to be present in the SEI office and they will guide you through the rest of the process.

You can call SEI main office using the following numbers:
02 839 0083
02 837 2071

Wow great! That's a good nes princesse. :) Yep yep, everybody is doing fine naman here. Kawawa lang mga victims ng Typhoon Ondoy, pero everyone is doing bayanihan naman at nag tutulong tulong para maka raos ang mga kapwa pinoy na nasalanta ng bagyo. Blue_PDT_01_15

good to hear that. just sad na kailangan pang mangyari ang isang trahedya to bring our people together. this may be the purpose of it. so look forward na lang dapat. but honestly, i can really feel the bayanihan. so so proud to be pinoy. kahit dito, all the Filipino communities are working together to help our fellow countrymen affected by the typhoon back home.

will keep you posted. hopefully soon i could get my clearance na... =)

hi everyone! :) i am planning to have a personal travel outside the country this april. my first problem is how will I get my passport. kailangan kasi ng NBI clearance to apply for my passport. my local NBI clearance has a "DOST-SEI scholar, not allowed to travel abroad" (not the exact words, pero same ang thought). baka kasi may ganoong print din ung for travel abroad na NBI clearance.

second, anyone who has an idea of how much will i pay for the surety bond? so i will know how much to prepare.

thanks in advance!
