How much is an NBI Clearance?

July 25, 2018 9:21 am

Last Updated on

When you process your NBI Clearance, you must pay the appropriate amount according to the purpose of your NBI Clearance Online Application. Getting your NBI comes with a fee and the cost is varies for different purpose. The table below shows the different purposes of NBI Clearance and its prices that any applicant must pay.

Are you ready now to apply for an NBI Clearance? Not yet! You need to know first how much is it! I have written a list of NBI Clearance application fees and their purposes that you should be know when applying for an NBI Clearance.

Update January 2017: Effective January 2017 onward, NBI Clearance Branches will be implementing the “No Appointment No Entry Policy” for all NBI Clearance applicants. That means that no applicant will be entertained if he or she doesn’t have an appointment. To all the NBI Clearance Online applicants, you can secure an appointment through their official website but you need to register first before setting an appointment.

NBI Clearance Purpose of ApplicationNBI Clearance Fees
Local Employment, Change of Gender, For Probation, Correction of Birthdate, Enlistment AFP, For Promotion, Enlistment PNP, ID Purposes, Custom’s Pass ID, Student Visa, Lateral Entry, Seaman, Seawoman’s Book, BID, CA, LTO, NSO, PNP, SSS, DND, DOT , Marriage and Other RequirementP 155
Travel Abroad, Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Central America, Europe, Hongkong, Libya, Micronesia, Middle East, New Zealand, North America, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Qatar, Saipan, Singapore, South America, Taiwan, USA, Passport Renewal, For Deportation, Self Deportation, Immigration Requirement, Visa Australia, Canada, China, New Zealand, Visa Seaman, Seawoman, USAP 155
Business Requirement , Change of Name, Permit to Carry Firearms, Firearms License , Adoption NFA, POEA, PRA, SEC , NTC, ACR Requirement, Special Investor’s Residence VisaP 155
Naturalization, Cancellation of Alien Certificate Of Registration (ACR) , RepatriationP 155

Good news!

What you just read above? It’s no longer applicable to NBI Clearance! Wait what? Yup, the fees above are not applicable anymore because our Government have changed it to Multi Purpose NBI Clearance. Through the memorandum issued dated September 7, 2017, NBI Director Dante Gierran mentioned that the NBI Agency has changed its format of its NBI Clearance to display the phrase “Issued for whatever legal purpose”. This means that that there is only one purpose. Whatever purpose you need the NBI Clearance, it will be accepted because its already Multi Purpose NBI Clearance.

The Local Employment, Travel abroad, Change of Gender, Correction of Birthdate in you Birth certificate are gone. This mean that one NBI Clearance is needed for all. You only need to do the NBI Online Registration and that’s it!

The best thing about this multi purpose NBI Clearance is it will only cost you 170.

Update! The NBI Clearance Fees are now P170! That includes the NBI Clearance fees + Service Fess + Payment Center Service Charges.

Please remember that if you’re not really sure what to do when you apply for your NBI Clearance, do not hesitate to ask the NBI Clearance personnel there. They willing to help you whenever you needed them.

Just a few reminders…

Before you head down to the NBI Clearance branches, make sure bring the following application requirements which is two valid ID. If you don’t know it yet, here’s a list of Valid IDs you can bring.

Please bear in mind to make sure to wear something appropriate. Some NBI Clearance Branch are very strict with what you wear. Unfortunately, the clothes we wear everyday when we go to out are not allowed within the  NBI Clearance outlets. Please note that there are certain (unwritten) policy within the premises.

To be honest, i haven’t seen or read any official statement or policy about the dress code. But I’ve heard that there are cases that the applicant was denied of entry because they are wearing shorts. So just to be sure, it’s better to play it safe than be denied of entry and waste a day because you had to go back home and change what you wear.

To let you know what are the appropriate clothing, here are the list of recommended clothes for men and women.

Appropriate Clothing for Males:

  • T-Shirts
  • Polo shirts
  • Pants
  • A pair of closed shoes is highly recommended whether it is a rubber or leather shoes.

Appropriate Clothing for Females:

  • Sleeved top or blouses
  • Blouse with sweater
  • Turtleneck tops
  • Shirt dress worn with pants
  • Tailored dress
  • Short dresses (should not be shorter than 1 inch above the knee)
  • Skirts of appropriate length (should not be shorter than 1 inch above the knee)

Note: When wearing skirt above the knee, hosiery is recommended. Color of hosiery should be office appropriate: Black, Gray, Brown, Nude. Refrain from wearing shorts or tank top for men. They say that it’s not appropriate when dealing with Government agencies when wearing those kinds of clothing (which is true, by the way).

Last thing, I would like to let you know that we have written an updated guide on How to apply NBI Clearance Online.

Is this reasonable?
