We really want to spread this article so that people looking for a tutorial on how to properly apply for an NBI Clearance Online can easily find it.

To begin our tutorial on how to apply NBI Clearance Online, we’ll start with Step 1 – Registration.

REGISTER AN ACCOUNT IN NBI CLEARANCE ONLINE WEBSITE

Go to the official website of NBI Clearance (https://clearance.nbi.gov.ph/) and register an account.

To do this, on the right side of the page, a registration form is displayed where new applicants of NBI Clearance Online account is required to be filled up.

NBI Clearance Online Application - REGISTER AN ACCOUNT IN NBI CLEARANCE ONLINE WEBSITE

Enter the required personal information such as your name, email address, birth date and your preferred password for your account.

Agree to the Terms of service by clicking the check box button below.

Press sign up to complete the NBI Clearance Online Application.

A small window will appear asking for confirmation if what you have entered are correct.

Make sure that you verify the correctness of your personal information because you won’t be able to modify this after this step.

After checking your personal information, you may click the “YES” button to finalize your NBI Clearance Online Account Registration.

You will be directed to the main dashboard or main page of your NBI Clearance Online Account. This means that your account registration is successful.

It says that the email I’m using is already taken, what does this mean?

Maybe you already have an account registered? You just forget it.

There’s also a possibility that someone used your email address. Try to use the Forgot Password feature of the website to reset your password. An email will be sent to your email address to reset it.

Can I register a second account with NBI Clearance Online?

Yes. A second account is fine. Just make sure to use a different email address.

I already have an account with NBI Clearance Online but I can’t remember the password. What should I do?

You can use the Forgot Password. Just what I’ve said in the previous question.

If you don’t have an access to your email address, you can just register a second account.

I don’t have a second email address, what should I do?

You can create a new one. I recommend GMAIL. But other email service is fine. There’s no problem with that.

Is the email address really important in the NBI Clearance Online Registration?

Well, sort of. Actually, the website only need your email address as your USER NAME but aside from that there’s no other use.

The NBI Clearance website won’t be sending any emails to you unless you use the Forgot Password feature.

We tried to register an account using a fake email address and it went through. But we don’t want you to use a fake email. Because If you forgot your password, you can reset your password using the “Forgot Password” feature and the website will send a RESET link to reset your account password.

FILL UP THE NBI CLEARANCE APPLICATION FORM.

The next steps discusses the NBI Clearance Online Application Form.

Right after the account registration, all applicants are required to fill up the application form.

NBI Clearance Online Application - FILL UP THE NBI CLEARANCE APPLICATION FORM

Enter your personal information such as:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Birth Date and Birth Place
  • Citizenship
  • Educational Attainment
  • Occupation
  • Your Parents Name and birth place
  • Weight
  • Height

Press the SAVE INFORMATION button bellow.

What if I don’t have a Middle Name?

The website requires middle name to be entered but for some cases, the applicant don’t known his or her Middle Name.

If this happens, you may write “Middle Name Unknown”.

I noticed that I have an incorrect personal information written in my application form. What should I do?

You can still correct this mistake by click the “EDIT INFORMATION” button and it will lead you the application form again to edit your mistake.

Schedule an appointment.

Now your next step would be Scheduling your Appointment for your NBI Clearance Online Processing.

In the right side of your screen, right beside the your Application Form you’ll see “APPLY FOR CLEARANCE” button. Click it to start scheduling your appointment.

A small window will show up asking you what Valid ID you have that you will present when applying for an NBI Clearance.

You may refer to the list of Valid IDs accepted in applying NBI Clearance.

It will direct you the scheduling system of the website. First thing to do is select the NBI Clearance Branch where you want to appear and process your NBI Clearance.

Select any NBI branch that you prefer. I advise you to choose a branch that is near and convenient for you.

Remember that this is the place where you’re going to process you NBI Clearance and have your Photo taken as well as biometrics (finger print scan).

Next is the Date and Time. Select your preferred date and time. NBI Clearance Branches are open Monday to Friday, 9AM to 5PM. Though the Office hours differ from every branch.

Another thing, the availability of the NBI Branch also depend on Philippine Holiday and Local Municipality Holiday. This means, NBI Branch are not open during holidays. There are times that the City where the NBI Branch is located held its own holiday such as Manila Day, Quezon City Day and others. When this happens, NBI Branch on that area is close.

So make sure to check the holiday calendar before you set an appointment.

NBI Clearance Online - SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT

Select the date you want to process your NBI Clearance. Obviously, select the date when you are available.

There are only two option for the Time Slot, AM (morning) and PM (afternoon / after lunch). There’s no specific time.

What time do I exactly come to the NBI Clearance Branch?

It’s up to you. If you chose AM, then go there when the branch opens. I recommend going there early.

If you chose PM, after lunch to closing is the time.

You’re almost done with the NBI Clearance Online Application. After selecting the NBI Branch, Time and Date, select the payment method. I recommend paying your NBI Clearance in 7-Eleven with a working Cliqq Booth/Terminal.

Note that it will also show you how much NBI Clearance application fees. It will cost you P130 for NBI Clearance, P25 for E-Payment Services and additional P15 for convenience fee if you use 7-Eleven as payment method.

Also note that all payment options has different amount of Convenience fees.

Click the 7-Eleven icon to proceed. It will display your NBI Clearance Reference Number. Take note of it or take a photo using your smart phone.

The NBI Clearance Reference Number will be use when paying your NBI Clearance Online Application Fee.

What If I lost the NBI Clearance Online Reference Number?

Don’t worry, you still have a copy of it saved in your NBI Clearance account. Just log in back to your account and go to “TRANSACTIONS” page. You can find it at the left portion of the screen (if you’re using a desktop).

I already made a schedule of my NBI Clearance appointment, can I still reschedule it?

Unfortunately, no. You can’t reschedule it. But if you didn’t pay it yet, you can schedule another appointment on the day you really want and ignore the previous appointment and previously issued NBI Clearance Reference number. As long as you didn’t pay the old or previous appointment you made.

Does the NBI Clearance Reference Number has an expiration?

Yes, the NBI Clearance Reference Number must be paid within 24 hours or it gets expired. You won’t be able to pay it in your chosen payment option.

Also, the cashier from the payment center will not accept your payment because your reference number is expired.

The cashier didn’t accept my NBI Clearance Reference number, what should I do?

Easy, you just need to log in back to your account and repeat Steps 3 to 6. That way, you’ll be able to schedule another appointment with NBI Clearance website.

Can I refund the payment that I made for NBI Clearance Application Fee?

Ideally, there should be a refund. But you have to coordinate with the NBI Clearance Office. Which will be a hassle on your part (believe me).

You can call 09179999421 or 09204129999.

I want to apply for an NBI Clearance for Travel Abroad or any other purpose. I realized that I didn’t select the purpose of my NBI Clearance. Why is that?

Its because all the issued NBI Clearance are “Multi Purpose”. This means that the Multi Purpose NBI Clearance can be accepted to any transaction you use it. Please read, Multi Purpose NBI Clearance.

Pay the NBI Clearance Online Fees

This section gives you an overview on how to pay your NBI Clearance Online Application in 7-Eleven.

But we have written a more detailed tutorial on how to pay your NBI Clearance Online Application Fee in any 7-Eleven.

Anyway, head down to the nearest 7-Elven Branch with a working Cliqq booth.

A Cliqq booth serves as a self service bills payment machine where customers can use to transact their bills payment.

NBI Clearance Online Application - PAY THE NBI CLEARANCE ONLINE FEES

Use the machine correctly to pay your NBI Clearance Application fee.

Once you’re done with the payment, you can now keep your receipt.

If you logged in to your NBI Clearance Online account and head to Transactions page, you’ll see that the status of your application will be “Paid”.

This means that the payment from 7-Eleven was already accepted by the system of NBI Clearance.

I already paid but it says in the website that its still “UNPAID”, what should I do?

Nothing, you can do anything about it actually. But as long as you keep your payment receipt and the NBI Clearance Reference Number, you’re good to go.

You can head down to the NBI Clearance branch on the day of your scheduled appointment. You can totally forget the “unpaid” status of your application from the NBI Clearance website.

I lost the payment receipt, what should I do?

The answer to this is a little bit tricky.

First thing to do is go back to the NBI Clearance Online website and log in to your account. Go to Transaction Page and find the reference number you’ve used when you pay your application fee. Check the status if it change from “Unpaid” to “PAID”.

If it’s already Paid, then you don’t have a problem. Just take note of the reference number or take a screenshot or photo of it. You can just bring this to show the NBI Clearance Personnel when processing your NBI Clearance.

You can just forget the receipt because it is already recognized by the system that you already paid.

If its Unpaid, wait for at least six (6) hours, it should change the status to paid.

Do I need to print the NBI Clearance Application Form?

You don’t have to print the NBI Clearance application form. It’s optional. You have the freedom to print or not to print the said application form.

But as long as you have the NBI Clearance Reference Number, you’re good to go.

I lost my Receipt, NBI Clearance Reference Number and I can’t log in to my NBI Clearance Online Account. What should I do?

Whoa. This is a huge problem. You lost all the those important things? The thing is, the most important item from that is the NBI Clearance Reference Number.

If you don’t have it, you can just retrieve it from your online account but if you can’t open your account. Then you can just use the “FORGOT PASSWORD” feature of the website.

The website will send an email to the registered

Process your NBI Clearance Online Application

The day you schedule your appointment is the day you should go to the NBI Clearance Branch where you set the appointment. Also, keep in mind of the time slot you have scheduled (either AM or PM)

As previously mentioned above, you don’t have to print the application form. As long as you have your NBI Clearance Reference Number.

Make sure to bring two (2) Valid IDs as part of the NBI Clearance Requirements.

Here are the list of NBI Clearance Requirements accepted in applying an NBI Clearance:

On the day of your scheduled appointment, make sure to wear appropriate attire according to the dress code implemented in the NBI Clearance branches.

Note that guards assigned at the entrance of the NBI Clearance Branch can deny you the entry if you’re not wearing appropriate clothes.

When you arrive at the branch, expect that your photo and biometrics (finger prints) will be taken.

Usually, there’s a queue line on these due to volume of applicants. There’s nothing special with the Photo Capture and Finger Print.

What you need to watch out is the incorrect personal information written in your application form. This is the chance to correct it.

The NBI Clearance Personnel will let you verify for incorrect information in NBI Clearance Online. Check each lines just to be sure.

Releasing of your NBI Clearance.

Once you’re done with Photo Capture and finger prints, you will be asked to proceed the releasing area.

A separate waiting room or area is designated for releasing the NBI Clearance issued for the day.

The release of your NBI Clearance fully depend on your name if you have a HIT or not.

According to our previous article:

“HIT” is the term used by NBI Clearance Outlets if the applicant has a namesake and requires the NBI Clearance to be verified further before released to its owner. There are 104 Million (and counting) breathing individuals in the Philippines. With that size of population, there’s a chance that you have a namesake who already applied for their NBI Clearance.

You’ve been HIT! Reasons why you can’t afford a one day NBI Clearance processing!

If you don’t have a hit, they will be release your NBI Clearance in a few minutes.

If you have an NBI Clearance HIT, they will ask you to go home and come back on their assigned date. Its usually eight (8) working days but sometimes, it extends to fifteen (15) working days due to huge volume of applicants.

In short, you have to wait for the pick up date the NBI Clearance assigned before you get your hands on your precious NBI Clearance.

I failed to claim my NBI Clearance, can I still claim it?

It depends. If we’re just talking about 2 to 3 weeks, maybe you can still claim it. But if we’re talking about a month or several months, there’s a possibility that they won’t give it to you since its been there already for so long and have to destroy it.

I won’t be able to claim my NBI Clearance on the specified date, can I ask someone to claim it?

Yes, you can do that. But you should issue an Authorization Letter stating that you authorized your representative to claim your NBI Clearance. You may read more about this in our article (Ask Someone To Claim Your NBI Clearance).

There’s also a chance that when you claim your NBI Clearance after waiting eight (8) working days, the NBI Personnel asks you to go to the NBI Clearance Taft Main Building for Quality Control Interview.

According to our previous post, NBI Clearance Quality Control Interview:

In my own understanding, NBI Clearance Quality Control Interview is a process by which an NBI Personnel reviews or verify the true identity of the NBI Clearance applicant.

This usually happens if you have the following:

  • You have a pending or ongoing case.
  • You are under for arrest (outstanding warrant of arrest) and needs to be identified in relation to a crime by the Police Authorities

Or its mostly possible that you have:

  • You have a Namesake has a pending or ongoing case or
  • Your Namesake are under for arrest (outstanding warrant of arrest) and needs to be identified in relation to a crime by the Police Authorities

You can read more about the Quality Control Interview here at our article.

There you have it, its the complete and ultimate guide on how to apply NBI Clearance Online.

I missed my NBI Clearance Appointment, can I still go the other day?

It also depends. If you missed your schedule and 2 to 5 working days have passed, you still go to the NBI Online Clearance Branch and process your NBI Clearance or NBI Renewal.

But if it’s been a more than a week, NBI Branch can deny you of their service.

NBI Clearance Requirements Updated Guide

Nbi Clearance Online Requirements Updated Guide

NBI Clearance Requirements have been a buzz in our comments section. That’s why we’re writing another tutorial on how to apply NBI Clearance Online and the requirements needed so the public would know what really is the real score about it.

Ideally, in applying any Government issued document is usually requires several valid IDs and other documents proving the identity of the applicant. NBI Clearance is same with the aforementioned Government issued document.

In our country, document such as NBI Clearance is (most of the time) required by different Public and Private Agencies such as Companies who are seeking for Employees. Hence, NBI Clearance is one of the major employment requirement aside from the applicant’s professional resume template.

Having an NBI Clearance is as easy as applying for a Philippine Passport, we’ll dig in to that later on. But to give you an overview of the process, you can check out this updated article on how to apply for an NBI Clearance which discusses the step by step process.

We have divided the NBI Clearance Requirements into two (2) general categories so we can sort everything out and explain it clearly.

Before we proceed, we just want to put emphasis on this topic of requirements for new application and NBI Renewal are the same (Two Valid IDs).

Valid IDs NBI Clearance Requirements

For every Government Document you are applying, valid ID is always a requirement asked to be presented. The request for the presentation of Valid ID’s of the applicant is a security feature added to the process of issuing government documents to avoid personal data/information theft. This means that an individual is only required to get or apply an NBI Clearance for him or herself.

The Valid Identification cards or valid ids listed below are acceptable when applying for an NBI Clearance.

From the list above, the applicant is required to present at least two (2) valid IDs. Although NBI Clearance application requires only one valid ID, I personally recommend to bring two or more valid IDs as a supporting document. 

It must also be noted that the valid ID that will be presented must be in good condition and have a clear Photo of the applicant as well as its personal information.

Valid IDs from the list of NBI Clearance requirements above must not be expired. Obviously, an Identification card is not valid as a requirement or proof of identity in any kind of transaction.

Please note that School ID is acceptable for Student applicants only. If you’re using this as valid ID, might as well bring the School Registration as a supporting document. If you’re not a student and you’re using your old School ID or Alumni ID, there’s a possibility that the NBI Clearance Personnel will reject your application.

Photocopies of any Valid IDs are not acceptable. Original copy of the requirements of NBI Clearance Online must be submitted. This also means that when applying for NBI Clearance, photocopies of your valid IDs is not needed so don’t make an effort to photocopy it.

Is police clearance accepted as an NBI Clearance Requirement? Technically, yes. Police clearance can serve as a valid ID.

NSO Birth Certificate or issued by PSA are not acceptable as valid id requirement for NBI Clearance application.

NBI Clearance Online Appointment

We already discussed this process on how to apply for NBI Clearance Online Appointment in our previous post but for the sake of other people who don’t want to move from one page to another, we’ll be taking a glimpse of the process.

Step 1. Go to the official website of NBI Clearance Services (https://clearance.nbi.gov.ph/) and register a new account if you don’t have one. If you have an existing account, you may just sign in by typing in your email address and password.

Step 2. For new applicant of NBI Clearance Online Registration, enter all the Personal Information and hit the SAVE button down below once done.

A small window will ask you what Valid ID will you bring or present when applying for an NBI Clearance. You may select from the list of valid IDs accepted in applying for an NBI Clearance.

Step 4. When you arrive at the scheduling page, Select the NBI Clearance Branch you are going to process your application. Select your preferred time (either AM or PM) and the date. You can see the Total Amount you’re going to pay at the right side of your screen. Also, you have to select the payment option to pay for your NBI Clearance application. I highly suggest 7-Eleven as its much convenient than the others. Another option is the Bayad Center where various branches are scattered around Metro Manila.

How To Apply Nbi Clearance Online Select Date And Time For Nbi Clearance Application Appointment

As you can see above, this is the part where you schedule your NBI Online Appointment so make sure to select the date, time and the NBI Branch dependent on your convenience.

Click on the icons below of the payment option.

Step 5. Pay your NBI Clearance Application fee at your chosen Payment Option. As I’ve mentioned, I prefer paying my NBI Clearance application fee in 7-Eleven because its near me and its convenient.

Please note that there are additional charges to be paid. If you’re going to pay for your application fee in 7 Eleven, you have to pay for the the NBI Clearance Fee (P130) + System Fee (P25) + 7-Eleven Fee (P15). A total of P170.

Personal Appearance in NBI Clearance Branch

After payment is made, all you have to do to is go back to the NBI Clearance website and check if the status of your application changed. To do this, log in to your account and go to “TRANSACTIONS” section and check if you’re seeing it as “PAID”. Though this step is not that important, you can just ignore the status if it doesn’t changed after your payment. As long as you keep your receipt and your Reference Number, you’re good to go!

I would like to put emphasis on this, you don’t have to print the NBI Clearance Application form. You only need to have your NBI Clearance Reference Number and you can go to your selected branch from your application awhile ago and process your application.

Did I mention that you have to wait for your scheduled date? Yup, wait for your scheduled date before going to the NBI Clearance Branch. Make sure you arrive on your scheduled time slot, which is AM or PM.

When you arrive at the NBI Clearance Branch, expect that your photo and biometrics will be taken. If you’re lucky enough, you will get your NBI Clearance within the day or just waiting for a few minutes. That is if there’s not that much applicant that day or you don’t have a HIT.

If you have a HIT, they will ask you to return after several days to claim it. You can read more about HIT in our previous article down below:

Read: You’ve been HIT: Reasons why you can’t afford a One Day Processing NBI Clearance!

The personal appearance in NBI Clearance branch completes the entire process on How To Apply NBI Clearance Online in 2019. Whatever the result be, whether you get your NBI Clearance within the day or asked to come back, if  you’ve reached this part of the process, I can say that you’re successful in applying for an NBI Clearance by yourself!

Do I Really Need To Print My NBI Clearance Online Application Form?

We have heard several people applying for NBI Clearance Online asking the same questions over and over again. To give you a proof, scroll down to the comment section and try to read at least two pages of comments and you’ll see that we’re not lying. So to address the asking public, we are writing this post just to answer their one specific question.

Do I need to print my NBI Clearance Online Application Form?

Well, the short and straight to the point answer is NO, you don’t have to print your NBI Clearance Online application when you apply for your NBI Clearance. Printing of the application form is optional. Though it’s not explicitly stated in the website but if you think logically and use a little bit of your common sense, you’ll end up with the same reasons just like ours.

But Why?

If you’re dying to know or read the reasons behind why, then get ready to hear our reasons. Please note that this is based on the several people who have experienced and confirmed that the NBI Clearance Application Form is not needed anymore when you go to the NBI Clearance Branches.

First reason why you don’t need to print the NBI Clearance Online Application Form is because the application form that you filled up in the website of NBI Clearance is saved in the database of the same website where the personnel  from the branch can easily access your information using your Reference Number.

The next reason is it was also confirmed by the NBI Clearance Personnel from different branches that printing of the application form is not really necessary as they have the same digital copy of it on their database.

You can also call their hotline and ask the same question and the person on the other line will tell you the same thing.

Another reason why printing of NBI Clearance Application form is not necessary is when you bring a hard copy of you’re NBI Online Clearance and gave it to the person who will assist you with your clearance, He/She will just ignore all the other information except the Reference Number. What he/she will do is just enter the reference number on their computer and voila! Your info will show up in front of his screen. Easy peasy right?

Do you imagine that the NBI Clearance Online Personnel will copy and type all your personal information from the application form? Of course not! That’s the beauty of the implementation of online application.

But I Really Want To Print my NBI Clearance Application Form. What Should I Do?

If you really insist on printing your Application form then all you need to do is to open your NBI Clearance Online account and head down to the TRANSACTIONS page.

The page will display all the Paid and Pending transactions you have. In the third column named “ACTIONS”, you’ll see a DETAILS button. Obviously, you have to click it to show the Application Form.

A small pop up window will show up displaying the Reference Number of your Paid transaction. At the bottom of that window, click the PRINT APPLICATION FORM button.

Another tab from your browser will open and will load your application form. That’s the time you can print or save your application form.

IMPORTANT NOTE! This process of printing the NBI Clearance is only available/applicable IF you already paid your NBI Clearance.

I Can’t Find the Details Button, What Now?!

Don’t panic.

First thing to do is ask yourself if you already paid your NBI Clearance in any of the payment option listed in the website. If Yes, then it’s time to panic (joke!).

If you already paid for your transaction, check the status of your transaction if its still pending after your payment.

You need to wait for an hour or two for your status to be updated so be patient. The details button are only available if you already paid your application.

If the status of your application is PAID already and still no details button is available. Then there’s one trick I can teach you. Sometimes, the screen resolution of your computer is quite low that it can’t display the entire page of the website. Hence, the page is cut off where the Details buttons is located. This is usually encountered if you have an old computer.

A simple remedy is to just zoom in your screen. NBI Clearance Online website don’t easily adopt to small resolution screens. Hence the issue will be encountered when the user have low resolution computer screen. To address the missing details button, adjust your screen by zooming it.

What should I bring if I don’t have my Application form

Since we advised you to not to print your application form, all you need to bring are the following:

  • Payment Receipt – if you paid your NBI Clearance in 7-Eleven, you can bring your it as a proof of your payment
  • Your NBI Clearance Online Reference Number
  • Bring at least two valid IDs such as your Philippine Passport. If you don’t have a Philippine Passport, you can choose other valid IDs accepted in NBI Clearance application as an alternative.

Photo Capture and Biometrics

The last step in you NBI Clearance application will be the Photo Capture and Biometrics. In this step, all you need to do is follow the instruction of your NBI Clearance personnel on what to do.

We won’t discuss the picture taking which I’m very sure you’re familiar on how to do it. While Biometrics is scanning your finger print on their device. This will copy your finger prints and save it in their database.

We haven’t heard any issues on these steps as this the easiest part.

But the one day processing will not take place IF you have an NBI Clearance HIT. This means that the NBI Clearance Personnel will not issue your NBI Clearance and your NBI Clearance will be put on hold.

Most of the time, they will stamp your receipt with and date and ask you to claim it on that day. The reasons will be discussed further below.

NBI Clearance HIT

There are several reasons why you are tagged as HIT in your NBI Clearance and these are the following:

1. You have a namesake – this means that you have the same name with another person.

2. Your namesake has a pending criminal case or outstanding warrant of arrest – If you have a namesake and (unluckily), he/she have a pending criminal case or an outstanding warrant of arrest, unfortunately, your NBI Clearance release will be delayed.

3. You have a pending criminal case – if you have a pending criminal case or have an outstanding warrant of arrest, your name will be flagged and the issuance of your NBI Clearance will be on hold.

4. You had a criminal case – whether you are found guilty or innocent in your previous case, this matter will cause the delay of the issuance of your NBI Clearance hence your are tag a HIT.

If NBI Clearance Personnel determined that you fall on Numbers 2, 3 & 4, an additional step will be added to your NBI Clearance Application which is the NBI Clearance Quality Control.

For more details about the NBI Clearance Quality Interview, you may view our previous post about: NBI Clearance HIT.

You may also browse the comments section for the question, answers and personal experiences encountered by our readers.

NBI Clearance Quality Control

An NBI Clearance Quality Control is done in the presence of the NBI Resident Lawyer’s office. An interview will take place and basic personal information will be asked to prove the identity of the Applicant. This aims to prove that the person or NBI Clearance Applicant is not the same person appearing on their records that has a criminal case or a pending warrant of arrest.

If the applicant is not the same person appearing on their record with criminal liability, the NBI Clearance of the applicant will be released immediately.

How To Verify if an NBI Clearance is FAKE or VALID

How To Verify If An Nbi Clearance Is Fake Valid

One of the most sought after Valid ID in the Philippines is NBI Clearance. Well, what’s not to like about it? It’s easy to get one, it has few requirements when getting one and its cheaper compared to Philippine Passport.

Due to the high demand of NBI Clearance Online, people start faking it. You’ll see lot of them at the side street of Recto. The place is considered to be the black market of fake documents in the Philippines.

While walking along the street of Recto, just under the LRT railway, you’ll see several displays of their work. From fake diploma, birth certificate, Employment ID and even NBI Clearance which appear to be issued by the legitimate NBI Clearance Online website but (trust me) its not.

No matter how frequent the authorities get to raid the establishment, they just disappear for a while and (sure) will come back the other day. I don’t know how they do it but i bet its already a big industry which established itself that even our Government can’t do anything about it.

The dilemma now starts when you’re on the other side of the fence. What if you’re an employer and the person you’ve hired handed you an NBI Clearance as one of his pre employment requirement? Will you doubt its authenticity or will you just accept it without hesitation? What if you hired a wanted criminal? A thief? or worst, a murderer?

Not to discriminate but you don’t want to have that in your business. It’s risky. Plus, you how you can trust someone with your business who lied from you in the first place?

Forged NBI Clearances are very rampant these days? I have no idea why people are still patronizing it but if (in my opinion) I was given a fake NBI Clearance by one of my employee, I would totally fire them for falsifying Government document. Plus, they betrayed my trust.

I think one reason is people are still availing the fake NBI Clearance is because they have something to hide. Something that their employer don’t want to find out? Another reason is people don’t have the time to go through the entire process. Especially if the person knows that he/she does have a HIT and it will take them ten working days before he get one.

However, forged NBI clearances had been rampant these days. And for a potential applicant to resort to counterfeiting probably has something to hide. Not to mention that forgery is illegal and considered as a ‘Crime Against Public Interest.’

Please bear in mind that forgery is illegal and considered as a crime in the Philippines. You can get imprisoned with that!

So how do we deal with this problem? Easy, we just verify the authenticity of the NBI Clearance Online. But how?

Let’s take a walk and discuss how its done!

How to Verify an NBI Clearance

To verify if an NBI Clearance is authentic and valid, we need the hard copy of the NBI Clearance we’re trying to verify.

Now, go to the official website of NBI Clearance through your favorite internet browser. If you don’t know, its nbi-clearance.com.

How To Verify If An Nbi Clearance Is Fake Or Valid Image 1a

Once we arrived at the home page of NBI Clearance Online, at the bottom left of your screen, find the “NBI CLEARANCE ONLINE VERIFICATION”. See image below for reference. Click the button to proceed with the verification!

How To Verify If An Nbi Clearance Is Fake Or Valid Image 2a

You have two option on how to verify the authenticity of the NBI Clearance. It’s either you enter manually the NBI ID Number or you scan the QR Code found which is both found in the hard copy of the NBI Clearance.

Note: There’s also a new feature offered by NBI. It is the NBI Clearance Quick Renewal and Delivery. This means that you can just apply for a renewal of your NBI Clearance, pay the NBI Clearance Fee and wait for it to be delivered. You can read more about it here: https://www.nbiclearance.org/nbi-clearance-quick-renewal/

I prefer manually typing in the NBI ID Number because sometimes the “SCAN QR Code” doesn’t work very well.

How To Verify If An Nbi Clearance Is Fake Or Valid Image 3a

After typing in the NBI Clearance ID Number, click the verify button to (finally) see if the NBI Clearance you have is authentic or not.

For the sake of this tutorial, I won’t disclose any personal information. I have edited the image below to protect the privacy of the owner of the NBI ClearanceI’ve verified.

Anyway, if the NBI Clearance is valid or authentic, the same window will show you the image below.

How To Verify If An Nbi Clearance Is Fake Or Valid Image 4a

The image above shows you the complete name of the owner of the NBI Clearance and if it’s valid.

If the NBI Clearance is not, it will prompt you saying these messages:

The system cannot find the given NBI ID Number

It is very important to verify the authenticity of the NBI Online

Clearance. As the old saying says, “Prevention is better than cure.”. Imagine if someone you’re handing your trust will deceive you? So before making a big decision, have it verified first to save yourself from troubles in the near future.

How To Apply Nbi Clearance Online

Author’s note: This post about NBI Clearance Online Application was updated on January 14, 2020.

NBI Clearance has become an important part of our lives. A few years ago, we had only one way to obtain a copy of the Clearance but everything changes for the better. Our Government, through the National Bureau of Investigation opened the opportunity for its applicants for an NBI Clearance online application which makes the entire process more efficient.

The big problem with the manual processing of NBI Clearance is that it is too slow (a perfect venue for Red Tape). The majority of the applicants is ranting about the long queue lines and it’s driving them crazy!

NBI Clearance Online can be easily done online and skip a few steps of the old manual way. It also eliminates the manual filling out of application forms since it can be done online. No more long queue lines. No more wasted time waiting for your turn. The NBI clearance online application eliminates 3 steps of the process, namely: Data Verification, Payment to the Cashier and Filling out the Application Form!

The only disadvantage or draw back from the new system is it delays you for a day because of the Scheduling Task as to when to visit your selected NBI Clearance Outlet where you process your NBI Clearance online application.

Let’s start our NBI Clearance Application journey.
