2. Once finished, proceed to the Data Check Counter for checking of your NBI Clearance Application form.

3. Next, proceed to the Payment Counter and pay the corresponding amount according to the purpose of your NBI Clearance Application. Don’t forget to get your receipt. This will be serve as your “claim stub”.

4. After payment, proceed to Data Entry where they encode the Personal Information you’ve written in your NBI Clearance Application form.

5. After the Data Entry stage, a photo / image capturing will be conducted.

6. An automated finger printing will also be conducted. A biometrics system is currently implemented in every NBI Branches. Biometrics system is where they scan your finger prints and save it in their database.

7. After the steps 5, 6 & 7 is done, the NBI Clearance personnel will check if you have a name sake. If you have a name sake or derogatory record, you will be asked to return on a specified date to claim your NBI Clearance. If you don’t have a name sake or don’t have derogatory record, you will be then asked to proceed to the Releasing Area.

8. The releasing area is where they print your NBI Clearance. Just present your NBI Clearance Receipt to the NBI Clearance Personnel and they will print your NBI Clearance.

And you’re done!
