The aspiring candidates of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) have until September 29 to submit their application. Euronews Albania unveiled how the so-called “Albanian FBI” will be functioning, how will the recruiting tests be conducted, including a polygraph test.

Aspiring investigators must fulfil an application with detailed information about them. They must correctly fill in the 6-7 application form and submit it electronically before September 29.

But this the first phase only. Candidates must then pass a logical reasoning and physical test as well as write an essay and pass a well-structured interview, followed by verification of their wealth.

In addition, the candidates need to pass a lie detector test, commonly known as “truth machine”. A few weeks ago, the first experts who know how to properly use the lie detector test have been certified.
