How to Apply for NBI Clearance Online: Step-by-step Video Tutorial

How to Apply for NBI Clearance Online
There is now an easier and faster way how to apply for NBI Clearance. Starting April 2015, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has advised the public about the full implementation of the Online Registration, Electronic Payment and Appointment System as part of its campaign of offering fast and convenient service. All NBI clearance applicants are encouraged to go ONLINE and visit the NBI website at www.nbi.gov.ph or www.clearance.nbi.gov.ph for Clearance Online Registration, Appointment and e-Payment prior to your appearance at any NBI Clearance Center. Giving out of NBI Application form for walk-in applicants will be discouraged.



Previously, NBI clearance applicants have to endure long lines, following these six (6) steps to secure a clearance: Fill-Up Form > Data Check > Payment (Cashier) > Encoding (Data Entry) > Photo & Fingerprint Capture > Clearance Printing.



Today, with their new system, applicants can now experience fast and convenient service with just 3 steps:  Online Registration Appointment & e-Payment > Photo Fingerprint Capture > Clearance printing.



The clearance fee to be paid depends on the purpose of your clearance:
For Local Employment, Customs Pass ID, Enlistment AFP, DND, DOT Requirement,
ID Purposes and Other Requirement - Php 115.00

For Travel Abroad, Immigration Requirement, Visa Seaman, Seaman’s Book, TCB for RTO, Marriage Requirement - Php 115.00

For Change of Name, Business License, NFA, SEC, TBC, Adoption, POEA,
PRA Requirement, Permit to Carry Firearm - Php 165.00

For Naturalization, Cancelation on ACR, Repatriation - Php 415.00



We tried the online application for NBI Clearance for two purposes: for travel abroad and for local employment. The fee for each is P115. Please note that there's a P25 service charge when you choose any of the e-payment option. So we just chose to pay at the NBI Office. We chose the 'BAYAD CENTER' option so that we can secure a reference number.



Then we went to the NBI Office on our scheduled appointment and showed our printed reference number and two valid IDs. We were directed to proceed to the Cashier to pay the clearance fees. Then after securing the official receipt, we then proceeded to the Data Entry section for Image Capture and Fingerprint Biometric. Lastly, we went to the Printing Area, presented the O.R and claimed our clearances. Two clearances claimed within less than 10 minutes! Now that was indeed fast! Unlike before, half a day was not enough to get one clearance.
