  • Hi, mag paparenew sana ako kaso hindi ko mabago yung for renewal na application type. Then natapos ko ang biometrics kanina and nag ka Hit ako dahil ba yun sa unang information ko? Kasi nung unang kuha ko last yr wala namang hit. Also pwede ba pumunta agad kinabukasan sa NBI taft para makuha agad yung clearance?

  • Is it possible to use the system for appointment only but paying will be over the counter? Sa process po kasi ng system, walang option doon na NBI OTC ang bayaran. Para internet lang ang gagastusin plus 130 na bayad ng NBI clearance sana. Ung system po kasi needs 25 pesos charge, plus, 15 pesos charge naman sa system ng 7-11 kung sakali. Dagdag pa ang pamasahe papuntang 7-11, especially yung mga nasa kanayunan.
