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.
