Puro blank page not loading, andami pang links na irrelevant at invalid, kelangan p i update ung google chrome! Sana lng mabasa nyo to dapat ginawa niyo munang “OPTION” ung online application pwede p din mag walk in, mganda ang hangarin sorry pero sana kung Online dpat lhat n ng transaction Oline. -just saying.

    • The Day says:

      Malabo yatang mangyari na online lahat po sa NBI Clearance? papaano ka po makukunan ng picture? Pwede mo pong irason sa akin na “Eh bakit, meron naman akong file ng 2×2 ID picture ko sa USB”. OO possible nga po yun, pero sa ganong process, madali pong makakakuha ang taong may nais na gumawa ng fictitious na identity. Isa pa po, paano po ang biometrics na required din sa NBI Clearance? Sa ayaw at sa gusto mo po natin, pupunta at pupunta pa din tayo sa NBI Clearance Branches. Ang purpose lang po ng online nbi clearance application ay makapag skip ka sa iilang steps. (At gaya din ng sabi mo…) – Just saying.

    • The Day says:

      yung pag update po ng google chrome, I think responsibility mo na po ata yun dahil sa computer mo po na ginagamit ung problema. Anyway. u have a point. sana lang marinig to ng NBI Clearance Officers.
