One you click the SAVE INFORMATION button, it will redirect you to the summary of your personal information.

You have the chance to edit your information by clicking the “EDIT” button at the right side of the screen.

Schedule an Appointment

After doing the previous steps above, Click the “APPLY FOR CLEARANCE” button. This is the start of your NBI Online Application process.

A window will pop out asking for the Valid ID that you will present when you apply for an NBI Clearance Online. Press the “I Agree” button after entering the valid ID that you will bring for verification purposes.

You will be redirected to the scheduling page. This page allows you to choose the NBI Branch you want to process your NBI Clearance. Select the best NBI Clearance Branch that is most convenient to you.

How To Apply Nbi Clearance Online Select Date And Time For Nbi Clearance Application Appointment

Select the Date and Time (AM or PM) of your NBI Clearance Appointment.

After selecting the appointment, on the right side of your screen. You’ll see the amount of your NBI Clearance and the different payment options you may want to choose.

Payment of NBI Clearance Transaction

After selecting the mode of payment that suits you. For the sake of this example, I selected 7-Eleven as the mode of payment because its the most convenient for me.

How To Apply Nbi Clearance Online Nbi Clearance Payment Details

After selecting the mode of payment which is 7-Eleven, NBI Clearance Online will show you the Reference Number. You need to write the NBI Clearance Reference number and bring it to the nearest 7-Eleven and pay for it.


For more details about paying your NBI Clearance in 7-Eleven, you may want to read our article about it: How to Pay Your NBI Clearance Application in 7-Eleven

After paying the said NBI Clearance reference number in any mode of payment you selected you need to check the status of your NBI Clearance Online application. When you check your transaction in the NBI Clearance Online website, you’ll see that in the details section that the status will change from “PENDING” to “PAID”.

Processing your NBI Clearance

After completing the NBI Clearance Online application, all you need to do is wait for your appointment date.

When the scheduled appointment date arrives, go to the NBI Clearance branch you have selected in your appointment. Bring at least Two (2) Valid Identification Cards and don’t forget your NBI Clearance Reference Number and your NBI Clearance Online Payment receipt.

You don’t have to print your NBI Clearance Application form, all you need to bring are the items I mentioned earlier.

Photo Capture and Biometrics

The last step in you NBI Clearance application will be the Photo Capture and Biometrics. In this step, all you need to do is follow the instruction of your NBI Clearance personnel on what to do.

We won’t discuss the picture taking which I’m very sure you’re familiar on how to do it. While Biometrics is scanning your finger print on their device. This will copy your finger prints and save it in their database.

We haven’t heard any issues on these steps as this the easiest part.


NBI Clearance are issued immediately after you’ve done all the steps above. All you need to do is wait for a few minutes and your NBI Clearance will be printed and handed to you.

But the one day processing will not take place IF you have an NBI Clearance HIT. This means that the NBI Clearance Personnel will not issue your NBI Clearance and your NBI Clearance will be put on hold.


Most of the time, they will stamp your receipt with and date and ask you to claim it on that day. The reasons will be discussed further below.

NBI Clearance HIT

There are several reasons why you are tagged as HIT in your NBI Clearance and these are the following:

1. You have a namesake – this means that you have the same name with another person.

2. Your namesake has a pending criminal case or outstanding warrant of arrest – If you have a namesake and (unluckily), he/she have a pending criminal case or an outstanding warrant of arrest, unfortunately, your NBI Clearance release will be delayed.

3. You have a pending criminal case – if you have a pending criminal case or have an outstanding warrant of arrest, your name will be flagged and the issuance of your NBI Clearance will be on hold.

4. You had a criminal case – whether you are found guilty or innocent in your previous case, this matter will cause the delay of the issuance of your NBI Clearance hence your are tag a HIT.

If NBI Clearance Personnel determined that you fall on Numbers 2, 3 & 4, an additional step will be added to your NBI Clearance Application which is the NBI Clearance Quality Control.

For more details about the NBI Clearance Quality Interview, you may view our previous post about: NBI Clearance HIT.

You may also browse the comments section for the question, answers and personal experiences encountered by our readers.

NBI Clearance Quality Control

An NBI Clearance Quality Control is done in the presence of the NBI Resident Lawyer’s office. An interview will take place and basic personal information will be asked to prove the identity of the Applicant. This aims to prove that the person or NBI Clearance Applicant is not the same person appearing on their records that has a criminal case or a pending warrant of arrest.


If the applicant is not the same person appearing on their record with criminal liability, the NBI Clearance of the applicant will be released immediately.

Another new addition is the NBI Clearance Quick Renewal where you can just submit your application at home and wait for it to be delivered. You may read it here for more details.

      • Kat Delano says:

        No, NEW application na po ng MBI Clearance ang inyong dapat gawin. Masyado na pong luma yan at hindi na tatanggapin para sa NBI CLearance Renewal.

  • Mark Robert Bilbao says:

    Maam/Sir gamit ko po ung old account ko sa nbi tas dun ulit ako nag pa appointment ng nbi renewal . Pagkatapos ko mag pa appointment nagbayad nako sa 7/11 ngayon araw pero nakalagay padin sa transactions is pending . Panu yun ? Sa Feb. 15 na ung appointment ko

    • Kat Delano says:

      OK lang po yung ganon, wala pong problema. as long as nasa iyo ang payment receipt mo, wala kang dapat ikatakot. Pwede ka pa din po magproceed sa NBI Clearance Online Application mo. Magbabago din po yan from Pending to Paid.

  • prime says:

    Hi po…pede magtanong? one of our co-worker nbi clearance hard copy was lost he took it 2 mos ago
    is it possible to ask for reprinting? how much? thanks

    • Kat Delano says:

      Wala pong process na “reprinting” of NBI Clearance. Ang kelangan nya po gawin ay magrenewal of NBI Clearance. Maari nya pong iavail ang NBI Clearance Quick Renewal Delivery or Mag apply mismo ng NBI Clearance Online Renewal.

      Ang kaibahan lang po ng dalawa ay yung NBI Clearance Quick Renewal, ay idedeliver ito sa mismong bahay mo pero may extra payment ang Delivery. Mas mahal po ito kumpara sa regular na processing ng NBI Clearance Online Renewal.

  • Gary says:


  • Kristine autor says:

    • Kat Delano says:

      Of course required po ang online appointment para po makapag renew.

  • Judith C. says:

    Greetings from Jordan:
    I’m married to a Jordanian and resides in Jordan at the present time; could you please advice on the procedure on how to obtain the NBI without travelling to the Philippine if possible?
    Thank you for your assistance,
    Respectfully yours;

    • Kat Delano says:

      First, you can go to the Philippine Consular or Embassy. You can call first kung saan pinaprocess ang NBI Clearance sa Jordan. Call Embassy and Consular para po sure. Then you can read our article on how to apply NBI Clearance while in Abroad.

      • Judith C. says:

        Dear Kat:
        Thank you for your prompt reply, please note that I had obtained an NBI about 3 years ago and I am unable to locate a copy of it, please advice if I need a copy to renew it.
        Thank you for your assistance,

        Respectfully yours;

        Judith C.

        • Kat Delano says:

          NO need na dahil hindi mo na malocate kung asan. NEW Application nalang po ng NBI Clearance ang gawin mo. Halos same process din naman po ang NBI Clearance Renewal at NEW Application.

          • Judith C. says:

            Thank you Kate again for your prompt reply, what we need is to renew the previous NBI online, but we do not have the reference number of the previous NBI, is it possible to renew it on line without a reference number of the previous NBI dated 2014 or 2015, and is it possible for you to provide the reference number of the previous NBI via e-mail.
            Thanks again for your great assistance,
            Respectfully yours;
            Judith C.

          • Kat Delano says:

            Hi Judith, sorry but im not connected with NBI Clearance. If you don’t have the old reference number, I suggest na you register a new account in NBI Clearance Online. Schedule an appointment, pay the nbi clearance fees. then process your NBI Clearance on the scheduled date at time.

Ang ikinababahala ko lang po kase is walang date na nakalagay kung kailan po madedeliver, pero nakabayad na po ako sa 7/11 ask ko lang po kung pano po yun?

  • Dexter says:

    I dont understand po bakit nag apply ako ng NBI as OFW sa tulong ng kapatid ko po with my SPA peru nag mag process na at releasing na need pa mag antay ng 10days bago ang releasing? May bagong mudos po ba sa NBI kasi usually 1 day lang po talaga ang NBI bakit now need pa po 10 days. Mawawalan po ako ng trabaho nito kasi kelangan po sya sa renewal ng working visa po. Bakit nila sinasayang ang araw ko po at makakaapekto pa sa trabaho ko.

    • Kat Delano says:

      Its possible na mayroon ka pong NBI Clearance HIT. Hindi po ito bagong Modus. Hindi po nila sinasayang ang oras mo. Matagal na pong ganyan ang proseso na kung meron kang NBI Clearance Hit, papabalikin ang applicant ng 10 days.

  • Josephine Jasmin says:

    Hello have a good day,!
    I have concern to ask.
    I’m here in spain. I need new NBI clearance for my papers her in spain..all ready have authorization letter from consult from spain..bring there in philippines.. My authorization letter for my brother to renew my nbi clearance..what he need to bring?

    • Kat Delano says:

      Your brother need to bring his valid id such as philippine passport, driver’s license, sss id or um id. He also needs to bring your application documents (NBI Form No. 5), your recent photo, your authorization letter and a photo copy of your valid IDs.

      • Dexter says:

        Hello po Ms. Kat, I dont understand po bakit nag apply ako ng NBI as OFW sa tulong ng kapatid ko po with my SPA peru nag mag process na at releasing na need pa mag antay ng 10days bago ang releasing? May bagong mudos po ba sa NBI kasi usually 1 day lang po talaga ang NBI bakit now need pa po 10 days. Mawawalan po ako ng trabaho nito kasi kelangan po sya sa renewal ng working visa po. Bakit nila sinasayang ang araw ko po at makakaapekto pa sa trabaho ko.

        • Dexter says:

          May way po ba na makuha ito asap? Kasi ipapadala pa po yung dito sa ibang bansa baka di na po aabot bago mapaso ang visa ko dahil sa 10days releasing po na binigay. Wala nmn pong HIT kasi for releasing na po.

          • Kat Delano says:

            Malamang may HIT ka po kaya ka pinaghihintay ng 10 days. and I’m sorry pero you have to wait talaga ng 10 days.
