  1. I am trying to Register As A New Account because this is my first time applying but nothing happens when i press Sign Up. Is the system down?

  2. Is it possible that after paying and getting the biometrics done that you can update the online application? It asked for a foreign address but since I moved to the PH I no longer have a U.S. address so I put N/A. When I went to NBI for my appointment I had to fill out fingerprint cards and the office employee told me to put my foreign address on the cards, but I told her I didn’t have a foreign address since I moved to the PH, so she said to put the last address that I had in the the U.S. I told her that I didn’t put a foreign address on my online application, but she didn’t respond. They definitely need to reword that section for the online application. It should state, last known foreign address, or last foreign address lived at, oh well. I even had to leave their office to go across town to another NBI office just to get fingerprinted and have it signed by someone at that office. When we arrived the only person allowed to sign my cards was out of the office so we had to wait an hour for him to return and then back to the other NBI to finish processing. Now it’s a waiting game for the next few weeks until it is completely processed and ready for pickup.
