    • Kat Delano says:

      Usually po, 3 to 10 working days po bago madeliver ang NBI Clearance Quick Renewal. Minsan po ay mas matagal pa po depende sa courier (LBC) at sa layo ng lugar mo. Ang maipapayo ko lang po ay hintayin mo lang talaga. Hindi mo din kasi maveverify yung status nun sa LBC kung wala kang tracking number.

      • PABIE says:

        salamat po maam sa response…God bless

If I log in, my profile and personal info is intact, but there is no option on how to proceed. What should I do to renew my clearance? Should I proceed to NBI office or one of their branches to renew it? Please advise. Thank you

  • Margie Bancoro says:

    Hello po, nakapag-online application na po ako for renewal. Ang pinili ko po quick renewal at nagbayad na sa bayad center last Feb 11, 2019 (monday) ng 370pesos with the information na door to door delivery. Ask ko lang po from the date of payment kelan po ang delivery ng nbi clearance renewal..wala po kc info na kelan ako maghintay ng delivery at wala rin tawag.

    • Kat Delano says:

      Usually po, 3 to 10 working days po ito bago madeliver ang mga NBI Clearance Quick Renewal. Depende po ito sa layo, volume ng nagrerequest at sa LBC (courier who handles the delivery of our NBI Clearance).

    • Kat Delano says:

      That’s because hindi na po valid yang NBI Clearance Renewal Card na yan. matagal na pong itinigil ang pag iissue nyan. New application po ang dapat mong gawin at hindi renewal.

  • Darrin Pacquiao says:

  • Mary Cris Riego says:

    Hi. Ask ko lang if pag nag renew ng nbi clearance ba need pa din mag wait ng 1week pag may kapangalan kahit nag wait na ko before sa previous nbi clearance ko? And if yes. Why? Bakit may renewal pa kung mag hihintay din naman ulit kung may kapangalan ka.


    Sir/maam gud am..kababyad ko lang sa bayad center nagonline po ako for renewal of my nbi clearance wala man lang ba akong marereciv ng confirmation ng aking transaction at kung kelan ang delivery?salamat

    • Kat Delano says:

      Kung NBI Clearance Quick renewal po ang iyong application, wala na pong confirmation. All you have to do is wait nalang po to be delivered. Kung metro manila po, 3 to 10 working days po sya before dumating.
