  • Mae says:

    Hi is this still existing?. Anyways, I really need your help :(. I need NBI clearance but I went there last time and the worst scenario happened Lol. I am married, but I never change my surname or I never use my husband’s last name. But on all of my ID’s I changed my status (well bec we had a kid). So my current status now is MARRIED but I sticked to my maiden’s name. On NBI clearance form, on status of married or single I decided to wrote down MARRIED. Apparently, the guy from NBI office didnt allowed me to be clear. Just bec they said IF im MARRIED I SHOULD USE MY HUSBAND’S last name which is pretty unbelievable (Law stated married woman are free not to change their last name, which what I did). i am sure there will be a problem if I use my husband’s last name while all of my ID’s are on maiden’s name. What should I do 🙁

  • Marioef Dela Cruz says:

    Ito po ang website ng NBI na ginamit ko (https://www.nbi-clearance.com/), at ang browser na ginamit ko ay Google Chrome (hindi siya gumagana sa Firefox at Explorer) kaya na-access ko po ng mabilis at nakapag-sign-up agad ako sa online services nila.↵↵In just 15 minutes nakumpleto ko po ang pagsign-up, pagset ng appointment date at meron na din po akong payment instructions with reference number. Ang gagawin ko na lang po ay pumunta sa Bayad Center once na nasa Pinas na ako next week.
