    Ma’am my sister who is based in Australia is requesting to have her NBI clearance renewed. I am the authorized representative. Do I have to go through online registration on her behalf or do I go straight to the NBI office since her supporting documents are with me? Thank you.

    • Kat Delano

      No need. Just present everything when you arrived at the NBI Clearance branch and tell them that you’re processing you’re sister who’s based in Australia. They will ask you to go to the Mailed NBI Clearance Section to do the processing. Don’t forget to bring your valid ids and the authorization letter.

    Hi good day! i just want to ask how can i edit my details, its a renewal, i typed EDDIE-SON then submit but when im making an email it says that it only contains letters and spaces. please help me how to edit it thankyou!

    • Kat Delano
      March 9, 2018

      Kung yan ang legal name mo “EDDIE-SON” with a dash, ok lang po na wag muna ilagay ang dash, ganito nalang po muna ang isulat nyo: EDDI SON

      Notice na nilagyan ko po ng space pansamantala. dahil hindi po talaga tinatanggap ang dash “-“. Pag nandun na po kayo, sabihin nyo nalang po sa NBI Clearance personnel na need nyo po ayusin ung name nyo kasi ang legal name nyo ay may EDDIE-SON. pakitaan nyo lang ng valid id o birth certificate nyo para po may proof kayo.
