NBI Clearance 2019 Updated Guide

August 29, 2016 10:21 am

NBI Clearance Renewal, this topic is around for a long time since the inception of this website. Heck, the process on how to apply for NBI Clearance Renewal is so simple but people still don’t get it how it can be done.

Obviously, NBI Clearance renewal is a process where the an applicant already have an existing NBI Clearance whether it’s expired or not applies for a new one.

In our previous article, we have discussed the easiest way to renew your NBI Clearance using the Quick Renewal feature of the website.

This is a new addition to the website where the applicant just enter few information found in his/her NBI Clearance, pay for the NBI Clearance Fees and wait for it to be delivered in the comforts of their home.

You may want to read our detailed article about the NBI Clearance Quick Renewal here.

The NBI Clearance Renewal is far different from the Quick Renewal we’ve mentioned earlier because its much cheaper. Plus, the conventional Renewal that we’re discussing here requires the applicant’s personal appearance.

Just to inform all the readers of this article, the steps provided below starts from scratch. This means that the applicant of NBI Clearance Online Renewal doesn’t have an NBI Clearance Online Account yet.

If you already have an account in NBI Clearance website, you may skip few steps of this tutorial.

Let’s start our tutorial in NBI Clearance Renewal!

NBI Clearance Renewal Account Registration

Go to the Official Website of NBI Clearance Online Services (https://clearance.nbi.gov.ph).

At the right side of your screen, make sure to check the ☑ YES to identify that your registration is an NBI Clearance Renewal.

Enter your First Name, Sur Name, Date of Birth and your OLD NBI ID Number.

Click the PROCEED button down below to continue your registration.

If your NBI Clearance ID Number was found in the NBI Clearance Database, it will show you this image saying “Data Successfully Retrieve”.

This means that you can proceed with the next step and your NBI Clearance can be renewed.

If your NBI Clearance ID Number was not found, it will show you this image stating that “The system cannot find the given NBI ID”.

This means that you can’t proceed with your NBI Clearance Renewal and must do an NBI Online Registration as a NEW Application.

If your NBI Clearance ID No. can’t be found in the database for whatever reasons, that means you won’t be able to renew your NBI Clearance and all you have to do apply as a NEW NBI Clearance Application.

We have written a detailed tutorial on how to apply for an NBI Clearance here as a solution to this error. You may want to check that out.

Going back to the tutorial, assuming that you have successfully retrieved your NBI Clearance ID no. It will display this “REGISTER” window where it will be automatically filled up with your details such as your Gender, Marital Status, Date of Birth and your Complete Name.

The last three field boxes are for you to fill up. Enter your email address and your nominated password.

Check the ☑ I ACCEPT TERMS OF SERVICE and press AGREE button.

Press the SIGN UP button.

NBI Clearance Renewal Application

You will be redirected to the the main dashboard of your NBI Clearance Online Account where you can see all the (already) filled up Application form.

You don’t have to fill up the application form anymore since this is an NBI Clearance Renewal and they already have your personal information.


Enter the Valid IDs you’ll bring. Make sure to bring two (2) valid IDs.

Press the “I Agree” button.

NBI Clearance Renewal Appointment Scheduling

The next steps will be scheduling your appointment in processing your NBI Clearance.

First, Select the NBI Branch from the drop down list. Second, select the dates and the time slots (AM/PM).

After scheduling your appointment with NBI Clearance Branch, select the payment option.

NBI Clearance Renewal Fee Payment

I suggest that you select the paying your NBI Clearance Fee thru 7-Eleven since its convenient.

It will show you a small window displaying the amount of NBI Clearance.

Click the Proceed To Payment button.

The next window will show you the Payment Reference Number. Take note of this and bring this to 7-Eleven.

Please note that the amount that you should be paying consist of NBI Clearance Fee (P130) + E-Payment Service (P25) + 7-Eleven Convenience Fee (P15) which totals to P170.

Just to make sure, ask the cashier how much is the final amount that you should be paying as the Convenience Fee varies depending on the Payment Center.

Keep the receipt as proof of your payment. Now, Log in back to your NBI Clearance Account and check if your payment is already reflected

You can do this by clicking the TRANSACTIONS Menu. You will see the status of your application.

If its PENDING, just wait for it to change status to PAID.

If you see that its PAID, you can click the DETAILS button to print your NBI Clearance Online Application.

Note that printing the application form is not mandatory. All you need to do is just take note or take a picture of the NBI Clearance Reference Number.

This tutorial is almost done. But before we go, we’ll discuss the final steps.

After the payment, the applicant needs to wait for his or her scheduled appointment to arrive.

Make sure to bring two (2) valid ID that will be presented as a requirement in applying for NBI Online Clearance Renewal.

You can also bring your own Philippine National ID or PhilSys ID or SSS ID. If you don’t have one yet, here’s the guide on how to apply.

When the day of the appointment arrives, make sure to be there on time. If you scheduled AM, arrive at the NBI branch 8AM to 12PM. While if you scheduled PM, be there 1PM to 4PM.

Photo capture and Biometrics will be done at the NBI Branch. It will usually take 5 to 10 minutes depending on the volume of the applicants.

The applicant will also have a chance to review all the personal information written on his or her NBI Clearance before it gets printed. Here’s the chance where you can correct or modify all the information written if you want it to be changed.

So there you have it, there’s our tutorial on how to apply for NBI CLEARANCE ONLINE RENEWAL.

  • Joan Tampus says:

    My husband is good to go for his employment abroad pending NBI Clearance. However, his name was put on the HIT list. He has no criminal record. NBI Davao told him that he has to wait for 15 working days or equivalent to 3 weeks which may result in an opportunity loss coz the position is urgent. Now, any remedy of his case?

  • Aaron eleazar robles says:

    ask ko lang… Kapag di pah expire yun nbi mu… Mag kaka hint ka… Unang beses sa akin nangyari toh…. Nawala ko kasi un kalahati ng nbi ko… Yun natira sa akin ay un personal copy… Kinuha ko yun nbi ko sa las pinas nung april 2013… At okie naman siya walang hint…. 7 months palang un nbi ko,,,, kaya ako kumuha ng nbi ngayon oct. 2013 kasi kailanga ko ipah red ribbon yun sa dfa.. Di naman pwede yun personal copy lang…..

  • Vicky says:

    NBI is in dire need of updating its system. Reasons cited above are no longer relevant in this day and age. Biometrics should uniquely identify a person, regardless of whether he she has a namesake or not, in seconds, not in days! Once you’ve been cleared, the manual process of reinterviewing and reevaluating a person every time he she gets a new clearance is an utter waste of time, effort and money.

  • ANn says:

    Is credit card debt belong to criminal offense? And a reason to be HIT?

  • walden says:

    my number ask ku if kailan po marelease yung nbi online ku date ng pag online ko is 10/9/2014

  • mar says:

    ako laging hit na ngayon. pangalawang taon ko pa lang tong kumuha ng nbi na may hit. previous 3 ko ay wala namang hit.pero ngayun na may biometrics na,hit na ako lagi. kaya gawa ko early ako magapply preparing for the hit and come back 15 days after.Tulungan na lang natin ang government natin,ganagawa nmn nila ang work nila,mabagal man,pero umuusad naman kahit papaano, i’ve been in other country,mas malala ang problema doon compare sa atin.Pahabain na lang natin ang pasensiya natin pagpumunta tayo sa mga government agency.tao din ang mga yan. trabaho lang din ang gawa nila para mabuhay.tayo din gusto magtrabaho para mabuhay. Kahit masakit man sa kalooban na makita na may mga tao sa loob na tamad, will hindi nmn lahat.parang tayo lang in yan,minsan tinatamad, minsan sinisipag.

  • GJ says:

    I’m from Ormoc City but I applied for NBI Clearance in Tacloban with the confidence that I am clear because I already acquired previously 3 clearances in the past years without being a \HIT”. I was shocked this time for I was identified as \””HIT\””. Pero okay lang naman. Tanong ko lang po bakit kaya ako na-hit at kung pwede ko kaya kunin sa NBI Ormoc Branch yung bagong clearance ko? Thank you!”””

  • Mark Anthony A Lanuza says:

    This is the 1st time I experience this situation after 6years of local employment here in our country and 5years of worked abroad when ever I applied for NBI clearance I usually get it on the same day I applied. But yesterday was different the procedure was very very slow unlike before I used to renew my NBI clearance at Robinson Ermita but here at NBI State Rosa Laguna it is very slow and now I was shocked that I need to wait until Dec 18,2015 I don’t know if I will get my NBI clearance on the said date or not.how disappointing and I feel ashamed just to say that we applied computerized system and now we are high-tech even though it’s so inconvenient because before all renewal was separated to all new applicants thank u.
