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 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. Below are the instruction for the major browsers on how to zoom in:

Google Chrome – Zoom in

Mozilla Firefox – Zoom in

Zoom In – Microsoft Internet Explorer

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.

    If printing out is not needed, then you should update your other article in this same website (https://www.nbiclearance.org/how-to-apply-nbi-clearance-online/) because it says there that printing out is one of the last steps needed.

    It’s pretty confusing and that’s why people keep asking, so better update/edit your article. Thanks!
