    I used the quick online renewal feature and I need to provide some feedback. This was the most impressive, efficient dealing I have experienced with any government around the globe. I filled out the few pieces of information requested, got my payment number, paid at Bayan Center the same day. Two days later much to my surprise my new clearance papers are delivered right to my door. Unbelievable world class service, please take this efficiency and customer service and fan it out to the rest of the government agencies. Properly impressed, keep up the good work, NBI is setting a new standard.
