NBI Clearance Center – Application, Renewal, Price, Requirements

Click here to read my experience in getting my NBI Clerance in June 2013

Update (March 30, 2012):
A fellow Pinoy shared his/her experience at the NBI Main Office at UN Avenue, Click here to read about it.

Tips regarding application/renewal have been imparted by an NBI personnel. Click here to read the tips.

Keep posting your tips and experiences as comments, guys! We appreciate it. Malaking tulong po.

My NBI Clearance has not expired yet, so I’m not so updated with info regarding the new system (if there’s any). I’ll surely update this blog entry with my new experience once I go to NBI again.

Update (November 30, 2011):
According to a visitor who posted a comment, due to a system reset by NBI, all processes will only be for acquiring new NBI clearances and no more renewals, which means it will take at least one month to process. If any of you receive your NBI clearance in less than a month please let us know. Thanks. :)

Update (November 2011):
Based on visitor comments we can say that some branches release the NBI clearance within one day (or after a week if you get a hit) and some do so in a month or several months.

Update (July 16, 2011): I have been told that there’s no longer a Monumento branch, and that it’s been moved to Robinson’s Place, Ermita.

We went to Victory Central Mall today to get our NBI Clearance. The NBI Clearance Center is located at the 5th floor of Victory Central Mall, Old Victory Compound, Rizal Avenue, Monumento, Caloocan City.

I must say that the Monumento branch has a very organized process. It took us less than 2 hours to finish. Try going there as early as you can so there are less people.

The information listed in this blog entry were acquired on June 1, 2011. Prices, procedures, branches, and other information may change without us knowing.

There are other branches where you can apply for or renew your NBI Clearance aside from the one at Monumento. Scroll farther down to see lists of other NBI Clearance Centers.

What are the requirements?

2 Valid ID’s, original copy of old NBI clearance if you are renewing, and your presence. You need to go there in person because they need take a photo of you and your fingerprints.

What are considered valid I.D.’s?

Voter’s I.D., Postal I.D., SSS I.D., GSIS I.D., PRC License , Driver’s License, Company I.D, Valid Passport, ACR (for aliens), Senior Citizen I.D., Philhealth I.D., Student ID

When will you get the NBI Clearance?

Your NBI Clearance will be released the same day you apply for in, UNLESS there is a “hit”! You will find out when you can claim your NBI Clearance on Step 5 – Data Entry. They will place a mark at the back of your receipt, and it’s either without hit (you proceed to releasing area) or with hit.

What is a “hit”?

When you get a “hit” it probably means you share the same name with somebody else. You will have to come back after a week to either claim your NBI Clearance or be interviewed. Refer to the mark at the back of your receipt for the date you have to come back to the NBI Clearance Center.

I actually had a “hit”. It sucks because I have to go to Monumento again next week. :(

How long is an NBI Clearance valid?

The validity of your NBI Clearance lasts for one year.

  1. thanks for blogging about this Catzie! it’s very helpful as I’m headed to the Las Pinas satellite office tomorrow to get a clearance. (i was going to get one this afternoon but the line was long so i decided to go tomorrow early morning.)

  2. i went to nbi last sat july 16 2011
    around 2pm. after an hour & a half i got my clearance. just wondering the difference ng processing during weekdays compared to weekends.

  3. bakit ganun sa las piñas kumuha ako ng nb clearance nung july 7 1 month pa mkukuha lht wla n dw renewal laht bago.. anu b yan? prng dun lang ung 1 month?

    tska ask ko lng din kung pwede ko ba magamit ang for travel dto kng mkhanap ako ng work dto s phil. at hndi a abroad?

    1. Nagkaron ako ng hit dati. Wala naman masyadong usap usap. Pinabalik lang ako a few days after, tapos binigay na sakin yung clearance.

  4. Good Morning. What if I don’t have any valid ID? I am an out-of-school-youth so definitely I don’t have school ID. Voter’s ID wasn’t released yet. Plus, my birth certificate has wrong info. Instead of Male, it was Female. Would they accept that? What if I have this Power of Attorney (I’m not sure if that’s what they call it. HAHA)

    Err. I need NBI asap. Haha. Suggest naman po kayo ng pwede kong gawin. 19 years old nga lang po pala ako. Hehe.

  5. There’s no longer a satellite kiosk at SM Megamall and Park Square I Makati so don’t waste time going there anymore, for those living in Novaliches there is a new kiosk opening soon at Robinson’s Market 3rd floor, but no date for opening yet

  6. We are pleased to announce the launch of The Angeles City Pages. After months of hard work we present to you the most comprehensive online business directory for Angeles City. The *MARKED-AS-SPAM* is here to provide a one stop shop for tourists, expats and locals.

  7. kelangan po ba talaga dalawang valid IDs? Isa lang po kasi meron ako.. considered valid po ba ang alumni ID?

  8. gud pm.ask ko lang po if san branch aq pwede kumuha for renewal and change status,dito po aq sa la loma qc.what are d requirements po.thnx

  9. bk8 poh s olonggapo kmha kmi ng nbi hinihingi smn 1k kda isang tao,lima poh kming punta dun.ang sabi poh lang nmn qng pwd bng irush ung nbi nmn.paki sgot poh pls…

  10. sir ask ko lang kung ano requirements ng renewal kung nasa abroad ang mag papa renew at ipapakisuyo nya ito sa kapatid….? thanks

  11. bakit sa las pinas city hall ang kuhanan ng nbi 1 month pag walang kapangalan? 3 months pag may kapangalan? kahit ito ang pinakamalapit dito samin better yet mga taga las pinas na pumunta nalang sa nbi main sa taft 1 day lang ok na. but be sure be early as you can if you can make it @6am then it’s all good. ako dumating ako ng 7am dahil wednesday baclaran day. mahaba na ang pila pero still lunch time nakuha ko na yung clearance.

  12. sir, ask q lng po pwde ba kumuha ng nbi clearance sa mga mall kahit 1st time applicant ka…at pwede ba 1 valid id lng?…mga wat time po ba dpat pumunta dun?

    1. yung kinuhanan ko po dati mall e, so mukhang pwede naman. kung 1 ID lang hindi ako sure. best time siguro na pumunta ay pag kakabukas lang nila para mauna ka :)

  13. i though getting NBI is just for 1 day pwera nalang kung my hit ka… pero bakit sa ibang branch almost 1 month bago makuha ang clearance, tas kung di mo pa makuha in that day, another sked na naman to claim your clearance…ba’t ganun????

    pero pwedi bang makuha yung clearance mo sa ibang branch, e present lang yung OR mo???kahit d ka dun kumuha???

    1. Mukhang depende po kung saang branch kayo kukuha kung kailan marerelease.

      Di ko na po alam kung pwedeng sa ibang branch kesa pinagapplyan kunin yung clearance. Siguro mas ok na tanungin muna sa staff ng NBI branch kung pwede.

  14. i think its a false info about the “one day processing”, for my friend had an application of renewing her clearance in tagaytay city province of cavite the nbi personnel there tells her that it may be “processed for 2 to 4 MONTHS upon the application” take note it is in months not in a day processed. thanks

    1. Sorry, but it really took us only two hours to get the NBI clearance from Victory Central Mall.

      Please note: Some branches release NBI clearance the same day you acquire it, and some in a month or so. It depends on the branch you visit when you will be able to claim your clearance.

      I am quoting the comment of another visitor:

      [...] better yet mga taga las pinas na pumunta nalang sa nbi main sa taft 1 day lang ok na. but be sure be early as you can if you can make it @6am then it’s all good. ako dumating ako ng 7am dahil wednesday baclaran day. mahaba na ang pila pero still lunch time nakuha ko na yung clearance.

      1. hi did you get ur nbi clearance?i have hit too i have the same name then ill come back after 2 weeks..it is possible na makuha agad un pag balik irelease ang nbi clearance

    1. wala na po ma’am. may bagong procedure na sila, sa Mandaluyong City Hall na po ang processing. Make sure to be there early for they have a 500 slots per day cut-off. been there 12nn and sad to say we were already late.

  15. I do appreciate the National Bureau of Investigation for posting vital informations anent to nbi clearances, it helped a lot people like me having time management problems in securing important documents such as nbi clearance. More power to the agency.God bless.

  16. Lahat po ng sinabi nyo ay tama, kasi nung time na nakuha nila yung NBI Clearance nila na na release lang in days di pa na reset yung system sa NBI. Now wala na pong Renewal lahat ng apply New kaya it will take months to process, 1 month if youre lucky. Sa mga taga Cavite kung gusto nyo mabilis i suggest sa Las Piñas kayo kumuha, kung hindi naman kayo nagmamadali sa Tagaytay prang namamasyal lang kayo maluwag sila dun mabait pa mga Staff. ^^

    1. Nareset po pala yung system? Ang tagal na pala bago makuha yung clearance. Anyways, salamat sa pagsabi. Makapagpost nga ng update. hehe.

  17. Depende talaga sa place kung ganu katagal marelease ang clearance. Kahit nareset ang system at wala ng renewal still 1-2 hours lang ang whole process ng new clearance ko. Sa Bacolod po ito at December 2 lang ako kumuha ng clearance (New clearance dahil wala ng renewal). I suppose bago mgDecember pa ang system reset base sa posts nina Francis at Catzie last nov.30. :)

  18. Meron bang purpose ng application na for empployment abroad? Kakakuha ko lang ng Clearance na for travel abroad last Dec.2, accepted ba ‘to sa embassy pag nag apply ako ng work visa? thanks. :)

  19. um, what if you don’t have any valid ID’s? what are the other supporting documents required? is Birth Certificate is accepted?

  20. sir / ma’am saan po ba pde makakuha ng nbi clearance renewal card??
    Naiisue ba sa mga city hall ng crc??
    Pakisagot lng po

    1. Usually po considered na valid ID yun. Pero may ilan na hindi siya tinatanggap as ID, gaya ng dati nung may nagpadala sakin ng pera sa Moneygram, ayaw tanggapin ng BDO as valid ID yung NBI clearance :( Sa experience ko, yung ibang service providers tinatanggap naman nila yung NBI clearance as valid ID, gaya ng 2GO delivery, Western Union, etc…

      1. My present NBI CLEARANCE was expired Nov. 19, 2011 this mean i need to renew this documents.

        1st:Can i still renew at 5th floor Victory Central Mall?
        2nd:How to avail the DIGITIZED NBI I.D.?

  26. Getting an NBI clearance is by far the worst government agency process I’ve ever observed. If one is still confused what RED TAPE means, this is the institution that will clear things up. There are six gruesome steps one must fall in “long” lines on. And when I say long, I mean the longest you’ll ever see. This is an embarrassment for an agency who earns more than P100 per applicant at 5000 applicants a day. Upgrading their system and increasing their staff are just some of the “no brainer” things a head of an agency could’ve thought of. If this is a result of corruption, then it’s even poorly done as one wise corrupt would easily come up with improving the process in order to cover more than 5000 a day. Just when technologies are rampant now, it’s disappointing to see agency like NBI going backwards. Is this the agency that can trust to resolve the biggest crimes in our country? I don’t think so.

  27. amh hi po magandanghapon po sa inyo,may itatanong po ako kung ano po ba ibang requirements sa nbi clearance?first timerpo ako kumoha ng nbi.pwede ko bang malaman iba pang require for nbi?thank you po.

    ang meron ako yung “not valid for travel abroad” expired na. kun kukuha ako ng nbi na for international travel, pwede na sa satellite office?

    1. wala na po yung sa parksquare makati. if the one in robinsons manila is still there then that will probably be the closest one

  29. bukod don sa list ng valid ID’s posted here, pno kung wala ako non khit isa. what if first time ko kukuha ng NBI, is authenticated Birth Certificate acceptable?

  30. Meron pba sa victory mall.. Kc change address ako sa nbi.. Tlga bang sa main dpat mgpunta..nd ba pwde sa mga renewals..????

  31. wala na ung sa victory mall (TESDA na xa), nilipat sa katapat na mall, ung ever gotesco grand central mall kaso nasunog na un ehh. saan pa ba pede magrenew? open pa ba ung sa megamall? saan na ung main clearance center?

  32. hi there, i just wondering if i renew my NBI even im not at Philippines right now? im here at Auckland New zealand, coz i need it for immigration purposes thanks

  33. I applied for my NBI renewal today at quezon city branch, I was inform to claim my nbi on April 26, 2012, I badly need my NBI for the processing of my visa by next week. Please advise me on what to do regarding this, if I will not be able to submit this requirements my application will be cancelled. Is this the normal days to wait for the NBI clearance to be printed, please help me.thank you…

  34. @Virginia
    “renewal” lang 1 month pa rin ang waiting time? i guess you should’ve gone to the main office instead. if same pa rin ang process nila sa main branch it should only take you at least 2 days to 1 week if may HIT. pag wala, within the day mo rin makukuha. ang gara kasi ng processing sa mga satellite branches iniipon nila tapos dadalhin din sa main for processing tapos yun tambak trabaho. walang kwenta technology. hahayzzz… buti nabasa ko to. sa main na lang ako pupunta bukas. pero walang matinong info sa google. ewan ko ba kung sa carriedo or sa taft ang main office na pwede kuhanan ng NBI. nakakainis.

    @some others
    basahin nyo yun blog at intindihin nyo. tanong kayo ng tanong eh nasa blog naman yun sagot sa tanong nyo. gusto nyo spoon-feeding. katamaran nga naman. self-help muna kaya nga may google, etc. eh. bato-bato sa langit, tamaan guilty.

    …i’ll post tomorrow what my experience will be at the main office wherever it is.

  35. Isa lang po yung valid I.D. ko. I just recently graduated this March and ang meron ko lang pong I.D. is the alumni I.D. Di pa din po nirerelease yung Voter’s ID ko. Will they allow kahit isang I.D. lang po kasi wala na po talaga akong ibang I.D

  36. Went to NBI Main Office (UN Ave.) yesterday and to my f***ing surprise, the very long line of applicants at 7AM. First thing I thought was they are already “hi-tech” but apparently, half of the process is done manually. Steps 1 and 3 are the longest.

    Step 1: Data verification.
    Don’t be fooled by the people and chairs you see outside the initial waiting area for step 1 after filling up your application form (not me since I’ve already downloaded and printed an application beforehand from the NBI website.) There’s A LOT MORE chairs and tons of people when you get inside the gate. Disregard the tarpaulins that show you the applicant # and releasing time info. It’s not real since if you get a HIT, you’d end up going back in at least 2 days (15 days for me [applied 3/29 and claim on 4/16] for a f***ing reason I don’t know.) Step 1 is all about MANUAL PROCESS where oldie employees of NBI will check each item you wrote on the application form. Everyone’s wearing reading glasses so, good luck.

    Step 2 is payment.
    You can pick which line you’d fall in so it’s your call to be quick. Produce the exact payment amount (P115.00 for local employment/abroad/misc requirement) since if you give P120.00 don’t expect to be given a change immediately.

    Step 3 is DATA ENCODING.
    They will literally record your data on the PC because their old data is “TOTALLY GONE.” So much for being a very important government agency. This is one of the longest wait you’d have to endure. Either you ate a heavy breakfast, brought food or bought from random vendors popping inside the office every now and then.

    Step 4 is bio metrics and photo capture which takes roughly a minute and not longer but is still long because of the line of applicants. This is also when you will know if you’d go straight to the “printing area” to claim your NBI Clearance or the date of your return will be written at the back of your official receipt. Boys are separated from girls at all times and you’d be assisted by oldies who don’t look really friendly due to a heavy work load. I’d suggest greeting them “good morning” or something to lighten their mood (it worked for me.)

    All in all, I’d rate the experience 3 out of 10 because of the time wasted for a clearance. Started at 7AM, finished at 11AM plus a come-back next month sucks. And one last thing I noticed which I think should be very important, that OFFICE HAS VERY POOR SECURITY. No guards on entrances, no bag-checking and frisking, no nothing. Dumb-asses I’d say.

      1. optional lang ang police clearance if wala kang valid government issued ID. pwede rin latest baranggay clearance.

      2. bakit ganito plagi ang sitwasyon sa lahat ng sangay ng gobyerno sa kalsada trapik sa renewal mhabang pila di ba dpat nkakagawa sila ng action dahil araw araw ganito sitwasyon….dpat may corrective action pag wla meaning gnun nlang kpasidad tlga.PEACE

  37. @Marilou
    Other than your school ID, here are other forms of identification that they will acknowledge (as long as hindi pa expired):
    - any gov’t issued ID
    - brgy. clearance
    - police clearance
    - old NBI clearance (parang tanga nga lang kasi mas ia-acknowledge pa nila ang old NBI clearance mo kahit expired na ng 4 years ago kesa sa ID na nag expire lang last year. yan yung nangyari sa lalakeng nakilala ko dun na nakasabay ko. abnoy talaga sila.)

    …but come to think of it, isang ID lang pinakita ko nung nag-apply ako pero sabi nga sa requirements bring 2. sablay talaga sistema. just bring 2 to be sure. and good luck sa pag apply. parang mas mabilis pa sa satellite offices pero need mo maging super maaga.)

  38. @em-ross martinez
    Pwede rin birth cert pero dapat yung original or authenticated by NSO. School ID mo lang ok na kasi student ka naman.

  39. @joyce mateo
    yes. kahit pumunta ka sa satellite office new application pa rin ang kukunin mo. you’re lucky if you got no HIT. pag meron, hope that it’s just gonna take a day or two.

  40. Recently, I applied for an NBI clearance. I got a Hit and was ask to come back after 2 weeks on the same kiosk. Since this is the only requirement needed for my work application, my hiring date will be delayed for 2 weeks as well. My question is,Is it a good idea for me to go direct to the NBI office for the interview? Likewise, can I go there earlier than my scheduled appointment to hasten the process?
    Thank you…

    1. i was asked to return after 17 days to claim my NBI clearance after applying in the main office, I’d say just wait for it kasi probably ganun din mangyayari. you’re the first i saw here so far na may ganyan katagal na waiting time na nag apply sa kiosk. if there will be others, this means na pare-pareho na ang speed ng process ng main office, satellite offices and kiosks. too bad for you because of the delay in hiring though. yan din problema ko e. kupad na NBI given that hi-tech na lahat. biometrics lang ata ang hi-tech sa kanila.

  41. Is the NBI office in UN open tomorrow, April 3, 2012? I’m planning to get my NBI tomorrow as i assume na konti nalang ang tao due to the lenten season.

  42. i went to NBI headquarters (UN Ave.) yesterday (April 2, 2012). hope these information helps.

    1.) they now have their own location for the clearance. so don’t go in the nbi building along taft ave. from the lrt(UN Ave)station, walk in the direction of Roxas Blvd. its on side where time square building is (you won’t miss since it is the closest bldg near the station). you’ll know if you’re already there because you’ll see ALOT of vendors. enter the second gate the you’ll see. the one that has no tart that says “exit.”

    2) avoid having any form of contact with the vendors. they tell stuffs like “d pwede yang ballpen mo. dapat ganito.” or “dapat may envelope kang dala.” and force you to buy their .

    3) bring you own black BALLPEN. signpen or jellpen are not allowed.

    3) no shorts, sando, slippers, cap. in short, wear something presentable and casual.

    4) unless you are planning to go there at 5am (yes, they start giving out application forms as early as 5am), there will, and always be loooooong queue. and i am not exaggerating. i took me 5 hrs to finish all the process (arrived at 11am, finished at 4pm).

    5) because of the long queues, eat a heavy meal before going, bring water, candy, fan, and something to help you keep you sane like mp3 players at portable game consoles. because i’ll go crazy waiting in line. btw, men and women have separate lines at first. but once inside the building, they will be mixed.

    6) women and senior citizens are given priority. SC don’t have to queue and ladies will be be asked by the NBI personnel to cut in the line. i repeat, so ladies don’t just cut in the line and wait for the NBI personnel to tell you so.

    7) immediately proceed to where there are a lot of people and chairs. don’t go where you see people filling out their forms standing because you’ll have to fill it out while sitting in line.

    8) read the tarps before filling out the form. it have the answers for your FAQs.

    8) this tip is according to a NBI personnel. if you visit the NBI website there is an instruction there regarding applying online. but step 2 is no longer applicable. instead, download and print the application form then fill it out. then bring it when you get your clearance. the NBI personnel said that if you do it this way, it will be alot faster. i guess there’s an express lane for this kind of process because we saw some applicants that have visitor’s id hanging around their neck and we never noticed them the in the queue.

    1. Bro, is it true na makukuha mo on the same day ang NBI clearance kahit HIT ka as long as you’ll get it from NBI Taft? I badly need my NBI on April 30, same day sa pagApply ko. Thanks!

  43. Hello sa lahat… Pwede ba ako kumuha ng nbi renewal nueva ecija ako although meron dito regional office matagal daw kasi it takes 1 -3 months bgo mkuha.. And What can you say about sa E-clearance na tintawag nila i read sa website ng NBI may mga nakapagtry naba nun? Mas mabilis ba yun pag e-clearance ginamit mo??

    Need your response inmediately thank you

  44. I cannot believe the volume of people who took the opportunity to come here sa NBI Taft. I was thinking it would be faster and lesser ang number of applicants in light of the holy week. One would think everyone else had gone to their provinces already but this is ridiculous, buti nalang there are a few eye candies *wink 2 hours and running.

  45. san po b may nbi renewal kiosks??wala na sa megamall at marikina riverbanks!!punta kmi knina wlang nangyari init init p nman..guys pls. help..

  48. I got there at 7am and finished around 1:15pm. Girls will finish faster. Guys have longer queue than the girls. better use the online facility. Although you still need to go there, you’ll no longer endure the long lines.

    They accept old nbi clearance as valid id fyi.

  49. Enough as valid ID’s na yung passport ko and TIN ID Card, right? anong location ang bukas pag Saturday for me to get an NBI clearance? thank you!

  50. Hi All,

    Ask ko lang po kapag nagparenew ng NBI clearance ok lang ba kahit wala na yung old copy? Kinuha kasi ng employer ko yung copy ng NBI ko. So ok lang ba sa mga renewal kiosk or kelangan ko nanaman ulit magapply ng panibago?

  51. for those of us here abroad whom wanted to renew our nbi.please specify all the details wherein if we choose to send it by mail or to send it to our representative to the philippines.who will renew on our behalf.its kind a confusing.for my case coz ive send it to the philippines instead of going to the consulate coz i dont have the nearest philippine consulate here in Lethbridge alberta.and they dont have services in calgary also.and i cant travel to vancouver and pay a very expensive airfare.ask my cousin to request for the form no.5 but she wasnt able to acquire one we have to get here in canada.now that ive acquired a form no.5 and after filling it up and completing the fingerprints and the other requirements needed to renew. ive sent it to my cousin to renew in my behalf and yet its still not acceptable.any advice about it coz i badly needed it asap for my apply for permanent resident.its very time consuming.please help me.thank you so much!!!

  52. bakit daw po yung iba hinde tumatangap ng student id.? pwede din po ba kung sss number lang po ung dala ko.la pa po ako sss id eh? reply po pls/ need ko tom makakuha eh tnx

  53. Fresh graduate po ako and nasurrender na po yung school ID namin. Wala pa din po akong voter’s ID dahil di pa nirerelease. What if ang dala ko lang is my Library Card ID from my college? I have no other valid ID’s to present. Papayagan kaya nila ang Library card ID from my school?

  54. I applied for my NBI clearance yesterday. I went to Robinsons Ortigas kc un daw nearest sa kin being based in Makati/Taguig area. I got there at 6:30am. konti pa tao but no line. While waiting though, pinaalis kami ng guard where we were all seated as if lined up kc bawal daw mag-stay sa area na un (ung area na malapit sa convenience store na tabi rin ng entrance at taxi stand?). Balik na lang daw kami ng 10am pagbukas ng mall. we were all dispersed, everyone respected the guard naman kc he is just doing his job. Estimate number of people at that time is 35. I decided to go to Mandaluyong City Hall kc dun naglalakad husband ko esp when he worked in Mandaluyong. I heard mass muna sa Edsa Shrine so nakarating ako ng Manda City Hall at 7:30 na. konti pa ang tao. kaso, need daw ng Cedula and they would usually direct you to the blue building. No offense meant to the municipality of Mandaluyong. It is also a way for their city to earn when they issue cedula. In my case, kc ayoko pumila ng pagkahaba-haba (as in nasa 3rd floor na inabot ng line ng kukuha ng cedula, estimating about 50 people? i decided to get a cedula sa barangay namin. I stated my real salary kc I want to be honest. I recommend the same sa inyo if you are employed (nasa atin na siguro what we will declare pag tinanong if earning and how much). I got my cedula in 5 minutes then i went back to Mandaluyong City Hall. Natapos ako ng 8:30am. pwede na rather than hinintay ko pa ang pag-open ng mall ng 10am. So i think, if you go to Mandaluyong City to apply for NBI clearance, dala mo cedula mo and you’re there ng 7-7:30 or a little earlier, you’ll finish early din. but like other offices, they have a 500 count per day din. I wish everyone a smooth and hassle-free NBI clearance acquisition!

    slamat sa sasagot…

  71. guys share ko lang sa inyo what we did to renew the clearance of my sister .. we take chance and use the e-clearnace even though it’s just new and since we dont have the Gcash. We used the step 2

    1. we went to a Globe payment center and paid 135(115+20) and used the Gcash number of the NBI that is also used for comments and questions and especially help line the number is 09175638053 (pls. do check the NBI website to make sure its still the number) then the Globe issued us a receipt with the transaction num/id.

    2. visit the NBI website click the ONLINE NBI CLEARANCE APPLICATION found at the upper right of the screen, scroll down to the step 2 then click the APPLY HERE FOR NBI CLEARANCE then start to fill up if you are a registered user jut log in but if you are a non registered like us just fill up and type your email, reference number or transaction num/id,date and the purpose the thing is every time we validate it an error always happened saying that we mistyped the reference even though it is correct..what we did.we follow the instruction first thing to do:

    1.type PAYMENT VALIDATION ERROR with the reference num, date and if gcash or globe payment center and send it to 09175638052 a computer generated text will then be recieved but it will not help you with the problem


    2. open your email account then send the same information to helpdesk@nbi-online.com

    and the last and i think the most important and the most helpful step which is not included in the steps provided by NBI when you encounter that problem is ask the help line

    3. i sent the same message to 09175638053 then after 30 mins. i recieved an SMS from helpline saying to try to validate my reference num or transaction id/num then the rest went well hehe! be sure to text during office hours

    we went to NBI UN that day and saw the long line but thanks to elerance we went straight to 4th floor no need to fall in line and with just 15 minutes in eclerance office and were done. why wait for hours when you can renew your clearance for only 15 minutes.


  72. If ever i fill-up an online application can i go to other branch than the main office to get my clearance?
    i plan to renew my NBI local clearance to change my address and get an international clearance. would that be possible? What should i do?

  73. Huwag kau pupunta sa UN avenue branch, sobrang dami ng tao.

    kung may alam kau na branch kung saan konti lang ang tao, dun na kau..

    1st day – 5 hours.

    pinabalik after 2-3 weeks, p0tek, may kaparehas ako ng pangalan, may kaso ung kaparehas ko, aun, naghintay ng 4 hours, pagktapos, releasing na, buti ung releasing mabilis.

    kung wla lang sana ako kaparehas, release na sana e.

  74. Kung mali ang pagka hit sa iyo sa nbi clearance, may way ba para balikan ang negligence ng staff? Kasi po perwisyo yong pabalik balik tapos di mo naman pala kasalanan?

  75. hi. i’ll be needing my NBI clearance for travel purposes. and this is the first time i’ll apply. can i go to Victory Mall?

    1. ala na po sa victory. merun po sa otis robinsons place. mabilis kung pupunta k ng maaga para maaga ka rin makauwi. matagal lng ang pila sa baba kc wait nyo pa open ang mall, pero after nun mabilis na ang processing sa 2nd floor.

  76. hindi ko nkuha ung nbi ko kc kelangan ko p daw balikan eh ngstart nko ng work ko at umaga ung pasok ko di n ko nkabalik pwede b ipadeliver ko nlng s hauz un?

  77. ang panget na ng process sa nbi ngayon! mas maganda pa nung nasa victory mall ! nakakahilo yung sa un walang nakalagay na direction! renewal na nga lang kailangan pa ng valid id! kala ko kse ndi na kailangan kse last year nagrenew aq hindi na kailangan ng valid id! tapos ngayon kailangan na pala !

  78. ME: Sir kuha po ako NBI Clearance pr s bro and sis-in-law ko,
    need po pr s working visa.
    NBI: Naku, 10 days ito…
    ME: Ha?! bakit ang tagal nmn po. last year 1 day lng nakuha ko n.
    NBI: bago kc system nmin ngayon ky ganon, kung gusto mo
    bayad k ng 1,500 bawat 1 pr 1 1/2 oras k lng maghihintay
    makukuha mo n.
    ME: ang mahal nmn po.
    NBI: Tawagan mo sila baka kailangang-kailangan nila di
    magbayad kn lng…
    ME: di bale n lng po, babalikan ko n lng, di ko afford masyadong

    What can you say people…. More fun in the Philippines pa rin ba?
    It’s more pahirap… nagbago ng system, from COMPUTERIZED TO MANUAL, and to the employees… NO COMMENT.

    1. I’m working in Japan and applied my NBI here in abroad. I filled up an NBI “free form” and let an authorized person do the finger printing then submit it to the Consulate for validation with a payment of 2,425 yen. I thought the Consulate will mail it for me since I filled up a “free form” but I understood it, instead of going back to the Philippines to process it personally, it’s better to pay without questioning.

      I mailed it to my sister with an authorization to process for me. I told her to submit it to NBI Taft and hoping it will be released in few hours since my NBI in 1997 was released within a day when I applied for it.

      I was so happy that my sister got it in few hours after submitting it, BUT to my surprised the NBI personnel asked her to pay an additional P1,500 pesos for the EXPRESS or else my NBI will be released after 2 weeks. She already paid the regular amount which is P115.

      She sent my NBI and in a week it arrived. I asked my sister if the personnel gave her the receipt for the express as I saw only the P115 receipt. She told me the personnel did not give any receipt to all the authorized applicants who paid and requested for an express.
      This bothered me a lot. They paid without receipt for an additional P1,500? It is even more expensive than renewing a passport! Besides, why do some personnel collect additional P1,500 pesos for the express without issuing receipt. Is the NBI Director aware about this?

      For those who want to apply for NBI clearance for you, please let them ask receipt before they pay. I just don’t know at this time where to ask about this situation.

      Also a DRY SEAL in your NBI Clearance is needed for abroad use. You can also check the NBI online application for more details.

      Procedure in applying an NBI abroad.

      1. hi tanong ko lang po, kc need din namin ng NBI Clearance and we are from New Zealand. Pwede ba magpa e-clearance na lang kahit overseas tapos ung kamag anak magaasikaso in behalf.

        Ung araw na un mismo mo nakuha ung NBI pero nagbayad ka ng 1,500? pano sinabi ng sister mo, sinabi ba nya na pwd bang express? kc need namin within the week. d naman kaya maghintay ng 1month!

  79. In fairness to the NBI, i still made it to finish the process by two hours.

    I started at 10 am and finished by 12 noon. And came back at Thursday for the printing.

    Here is the blow by blow account of what happened.

    May 14, 2012

    10:15 Went to SM San Lazaro and went to a Globe Service Center to pay for NBI Clearance Payment (130 something ata).
    I started at 10 pa instead of being in the line ng 6 am in the morning sa mismong NBI at UN.

    10:30 Walked to LRT Tayuman, then went to ride an LRT up to UN.
    11:00 – 11:30 Reached UN station, went to the gate Of NBI. Not the gate sa taft, but sa UN mismo.
    You will see na napakadaming tao dun kaya you will never miss it.
    Bawal ang slippers and naka shorts! I showed my receipt of GCash Transaction, kaya d na ko pinapila sa almost 1 – 2k of people falling in line.

    I did a bit of research and i found out na nasa 4th Floor ung e-clearance nila, kaya dumiretso na ko dun.
    While walking i saw lots of people falling in line, doing forms, sitting in monoblock chairs, paying for clearance.
    siguro abot un ng mga 1 – 2k of people.

    I rode at the elevator and went to the 4th floor, pag dating ko dun 15 lang ang tao!
    Instead na pumila ako, i went for the door kasi ung kasama ko sa elevator naunang pumasok and may sinabi something about sa “ayaw mag print ung QR Code”

    Actually dun sa naresearch ko, plan ko na din na gawin yun bale(QR Code), and sakto naman un ung ginawa nya.
    The IT Girl saw me and asked for my GCash Transaction Receipt, she checked it and confirmed na pumasok sa system nila ung payment ko.
    Yung kasama ko nag gcash sha personally, and d pa ata pumapasok sa kanya sa system ng NBI(she payed 2 days ago pa, while ako 10 am sa mall)

    She asked me to register at the site to have an account, and to fill up some info dun sa pc and print the QR code sa labas.

    11:45 – 12 noon Went out of NBI and look for a computer shop, printed my QR code. (QR Code is working fine, meron lang sha sigurong browser issue kaya ayaw magprint sa IE or Mozilla.)
    It is working fine on chrome, so better look for that one.
    After printing it, dumiretso ulit ako sa NBI, went to 4th floor and gave my QR code sa 4th floor ulit and wait to be called.
    They took my picture sa loob and fingerprint. They handed me out a paper that says printing sa baba and i could get it sa May 17 (3 days after)

    I made it in 2 hours, where in fact, you could do it much faster pa than what i did.
    Here is what you could do, after paying the GCASH Transaction (better to do this on a saturday or sunday), make an account na sa site ng NBI and make a reference sa GCASH Transaction mo and print the QR Code.

    Then by monday, diretso ka nlng sa 4th floor ng NBI (e-clearance) para sa pila. This is less troublesome i think.

  80. hello…kumuha ako kahapon ng nbi clearance sa quezon city hall kaso pinababalik ako sa june 27 kasi may Hit. May paraan po ba na mapabilis yun?

  81. wOw ang dami “Bad Comment” kesa sa “Good Comments”.. well , share ko din experience ko..

    kahapon june 14, 2012 nagpunta kami sa UN.Ave sa main para mag”RENEW” ng NBI Clearance .. mga 8:31am to be exact andun na kami..pagpasok namin may bubungad na “booth” sa inyo para bgyan ng “FORM” para i’fill-up.. ni walang “TABLE” para pagsulatan tpos sobra pa putik sa pila.. magkaiba pila ng babae sa lalake (good!).. sobra dami taong nakapila sa STEP 1, around 9:30am nasa STEP 1 pa din kmi may isang “LALAKE” na MALAKI KATAWAN na sumingit sa pila pero ung mismong nagA”ASSIST” sa pila sa STEP 1 NATAKOT kaya pinabayaan nalang haha ! ..

    Nung nasa STEP 2(DATA CHECK) na kmi para i-check yung nafillup na form namin , NAGSUNGIT ung “matandang nakasalamin na BABAE” sabi “Anu ba yan hindi ko maintindihan sulat mo” .. sabi ko sorry mam kase WALANG patungan or TABLE sa labas para pagsulatan .. ung “LEGS” ko lang kasi ginamit ko na patungan pansulat .. hindi nakaimik ung babae..

    diretso naman kami sa STEP 3 sa may “Building” para mag bayad.. dun na nag samasama ang mga babae at lalake.. kanyakanya na ng pila , ang gulo na .. ung iba sumisingit ,

    pagkabayad namin diretso kami sa STEP 4 sa 2nd floor para sa (ENCODING) .. dito sobrang haba ng pila ulit .. ! habang ine-Encode na ung form ko ng “BABAENG NAKASALAMIN” naiinis ako kasi napapakamot sya sa ulo nya sabi “hindi nya maintindihan” ang sulat ko.. hindi nalang ako nag salita..

    Pag akyat naman namin sa STEP 5 “BIOMETRICS at Picture Taking” mabilis lang kasi hindi NAIIPON ang tao unlike sa STEP 1,2,3,4 .. ang init ng ulo na “LALAKE” na kumukuha ng BIOMETRICS at PICTURE ewan ko ba kung GUYTOM NA GUTOM NA or what ! nanghihili ng daliri sa mga ibang kasama ko sa pila .. nung ako na OK naman kaya lang may nilagay sya sa likod ng RECEIPT ko na JUNE 26 2012 meaning un daw ung DATE na marelease ung NBI ko dahil may kapangalan daw ako .. ang saya .. around 1:30pm na natapos babalik pa ko .. sayang GAS , PAGOD , GUTOM pa .. tpos babalik lang ? taga Valenzuela pa ako …

    gara ng proseso nila .. Angsusungit pa ng Employee.. Matatanda pa at nakasalamin na karamihan .. di ko alam kung nagkamali ng tingin kaya pinapabalik pa ako sa 26..

    (habang nasa STEP 1)
    may isang GUY don na nag aassist ng pila cnsabing “O UNG MGA NAGMAMADALI JAN HA LAPET LANG SAKEN DIRETSO NA AGAD SA BUILDING PARA MAG BIOMETRICS” .. nag tanong ako , sir “magkano” po ang bayad ? sagot nya, “350″ lang .. anu yun padulas ?? kawawa naman ung mga walang pera masisingitan lang ng may pera .. tsktsk… pera pera ang labanan …

  96. oh my god!! Im so surprise kase proper na ang procedure ng pagkuha ng nbi, but then i find out that though the Q.C city hall implement its proper procedure where in STEP 1. is to get APPLICATION FORM on the guard. .my series of time kc, like mine, i came 8am in the m0rning but my form indicates 11 to 12nn. Ok naman sna un, as long na ung GOVN’T EMPLOYEE are not having the chitchat moment, tulad n lng sa payment procedure, you need to wait for long para maentertain ka.. The fact na super dameng mga applicants. Instead n mpbilis ang process, inuuna ang chikahan.. It shouldnt be done like that, we came here early and we need to wait much. Understood ang mhbng pila, but the chitchat and waiting for an hr, b4 maentertain.that is so silly.hay.

  97. Hi There. I’m a fresh graduate and I’m planning to get a NBI clearance soon. I only have two IDs with me (my old college ID and BC)and I’m wondering if they can still accept my old school ID. I also have a police clearance with me. Can it be considered as a valid ID as well?

  98. ask ko lang po.. Meron na kasi akong nbi pero local lang… Kelangan ko po kumuha ng pang travel abroad.. kapag po ba ganun counted as renewal un… O kailangan po panibagong nbi nalang… Naisip ko po kasi kung renewal lang sa sm megamall nalang po ako kukuha..

  112. you can get your NBI clearance within 3 hours from the time you pay thru Gcash up to the releasing of your clearance on the same day. you can probably do it less than that if your lucky.

    here’s how i did it.
    At 11:00 am I arrived at globe business center in alimall cubao. it took me around 30mins from filling up the form up to paying the cashier.

    at 11:30am while still in alimall i look for a place where i can have my lunch and also go online. i brought along my laptop and my smartbro usb stick with me. within 10 to 15 mins i’m done with my online registration and ready to print my QR form. i immediately booked my schedule for 2pm on the same day at robinson metro east.

    at 12:20pm it’s time to eat my lunch while waiting for my text booking confirmation. after around 20mins i received the confirmation for 2pm.

    at 1:00pm i went to the 2nd floor of alimall to have my qr form printed. there is a computer shop on the second floor. after that i went straight to robinson metro east, it took me around 20 to 25 mins to get there, and still have plenty of time before my 2pm schedule.

    at 2:00pm i went straight to the counter and presented my QR form. the guy took a few seconds to look at the form an verify it. after that my biometrics was taken and told to proceed to the releasing.all of that took around 3mins at the most. unfortunately, at the releasing i was told to return after a week. a criminal has the same name.

    it cost me:
    115 for the clearance
    25 for the convenience fee
    20 for the service fee

  113. Hope this helps:
