Your Guide on How to Apply NBI Clearance

May 18, 2016 | Lifestyle | 32 comments

Since I left my job a few months ago and enjoying the life of a full-time blogger/newbie makeup artist and a stay-at-home mom in between, I realized that my IDs’ (identification cards) are haven’t updated yet. Both my SSS ID and Passport are still in my maiden’s name and needs to be updated to avoid inconvenience in the future.

However, these primary IDs’ also needs supporting documents in order to push through the updates.

 
So to start with, I applied for an NBI Clearance and since I cannot find my personal copy from my last clearance, I applied for a NEW one. Nowadays, you can do most of the transactions online such as transferring money from one account to another, paying bills, applying for a credit card so on and so forth and I am very glad that you can also apply for an NBI clearance online. I remember when this is not yet implemented, I spent my whole day just for application and payment. I bet you also experienced that!  
 

To apply, just log on to www.nbi-clearance.com and create your account.

If it is your first time to this new process, click the sign-up button and choose between New and Renew Application Type.
 
 
In my case, I chose the NEW Application and filled out the information sheet. 
 
 
Once you are done, click the Sign In button. 
 
 
Upon registration, the Terms and Conditions will prompt and click the Agree button to proceed. 
 
 
Now you have made your account and complete all the necessary details. Once you are done click the Save button where you can find at the bottom part. 
 
 
Make sure all your information is correct before clicking the Apply for Clearance button. 
 
You will be asked for an ID to bring for verification and your preferred payment method either online bank transfer, over-the-counter or pay to bayad center nationwide. I paid the fee right away since I can access my BDO account online. Such a convenience. 
 

My most favorite part, you can freely choose your desired NBI Branch and the time of your appointment.

 
 

 


I chose the BDO Retail Internet Banking and followed the payment instructions.

 

 

Once the payment is done, I was asked to put the last 6 digits of my reference number to validate my payment. 


Once the payment is successfully validated, it will also reflect on your payment instruction/confirmation and in your NBI account.

 

 

Viola! You are now good to go! I did not bother to print since it is NOT necessary.

As advised I just took a photo of it using my mobile phone.


Come May 03, I expected a long queue and took me 2 hours for my turn for thumb printing and picture taking. Important note, make sure you have a photocopy of your 2 IDs. 2 copies each before falling in line and write down on the paper your Reference Number. Also, make sure your phone in fully charged so you won’t get bored while the line is moving. The process only took 5 to 10 minutes and as expected, I was asked to come back a few days later to claim my NBI Clearance. I got HIT which means that I have the same namxe with a criminal record. Tsk tsk. 


I hope you find this post helpful.

 

Thanks for the visit dear! 🙂

    It sure has changed a lot compared to how it was before. This is definitely more convenient especially for people who barely have time to line up.

    Having a hit does not mean the "other person/people" are criminals, mind you. Having this as a blog article will surely help those who are in need of having the process act faster, since most employers only require a receipt during your probationary period and not the actual clearance sheet. Yet.

    Very thorough and easy guide on how to apply for NBI. I've been using my bank for right at 40 years and although I don't see a need to change that at this time, I can see how online banking can be useful.

    This is really useful, especially for those who are planning to apply or renew their NBI clearance. It is good that the government has found a way to streamline the process of application. A good help to us busy mums most of all.
