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 RENEWAL.

    Hi, it was my first time to apply for NBI clearance, i did it online. If you do it online, they give you schedule which is 1week from the date you applied. So applied online on Feb. 10 and my schedule to pick up was Feb 17. I went at the NBI office on Feb 17 and sad to say that it came out with HIT!!!! On that day while waiting for my number, i found out that you can apply and get the clearance on the same day, am I right? Why is it that online application give you schedule to pick up which is i wait for 1week as I need it asap na pwde nman palang makuha in one day?????

    Hindi ka nai record dahil di ka naman nakarating ng presinto. Pero may derogatory record ka sa store na kinuhaan mo ng chips ahoy! Kaya di ka na makakatambay pa sa dinukutan mo ng pretzel

  • Jay ro says:

    As far as i know, your phone bill or even your unsettled credit card bill does not makes you a criminal. The only thing the telcos or banks can do is blacklist your name so other company have the idea. This doesnt affect your record.

  • Marlon Martin says:

    This HIT Sh*t is my always problem simula nung una kong pag kuha ng NBI Clearance noon. then ngayon natuwa ako dahil wow online na sila so nag apply ako ng NBI nung Feb 2 however schedule of claim ko is Feb 15 kaya sabi ko parang ganon pa din dahil i have to wait 10 Business days pero atleast di na ako nag antay sa pila. Nung pumunta ako ng NBI nung Feb 15 para iclaim bigla akong binigyan ng maliit na papel that i have to wait again for another 10 business days to claim my NBI clearance dahil may HIT daw ako. so i complained sabi ko what’s the use of waiting 10 business days from Feb 2 kung pag claim ko eh saka palang kayo mag veverify. sabi nila yun daw kasi ang process at puro alibi ang pinag sasabi nila at wala ako naririnig na solution or apology from them for the inconvenience kaya sabi ko there’s no point of arguing to them kaya nilayasan kona lang. buti nalang pala di ko badly needed ang NBI clearance kumuha lang ako dahil di na sya valid. useless online Sh*t.

    continuation:6. hina-hunting ka ng NBI dahil na-trace nila ang identity mo sa walang humpay mong pag-download ng mga pirated movies7. may utang ka pa sa credit card mo nuong nagtatrabaho ka pa sa dubai (or kahit anong bansa) at hindi mo na nabayaran nung naka-balik ka sa Pilipinas8. nagkataon na ex mo yung kumukuha ng biometrics data na pinag-palit mo sa isang lady guard ng isang mall at ngayon gumaganti sya sa iyo..
