      Hindi ko sure sa City Hall ninyo kasi dito sa metro manila ay hindi inaallow ang walang online application. Bawal po ang walk iin.

      • marie palomar says:

        inaallow din po ang walk in NBI, meron ng nakaabang sa labas at loob ng NBI compound na mga magreregister sa inyo ng online, bayad is fifty pesos (P50.00) kaya wag mag alala in case magwalk in kayo ng hindi nakapag online.

    pwede po ba gamitin ung nbi clearance online, may account na ako at irenew ko nalang kasi expired na sya pero nasa abroad ako ngayon balak ko sana ipakuha sa nanay ko ung latest at bayaran na lang?

    • Kat Delano says:

      Sa pagkakaalam ko eh kailangan mo pa din magpunta sa NBI Clearance Branch para makuhanan ka ng updated photo at biometrics.So hindi po pwede ung gusto mo na ipakuha nalang sa mother mo.

  • Jeralyn matos says:

    • Kat Delano says:

      Yes po. Need mo lang mag sign in sa nbi clearance online account mo then set ka ng nbi online appointment, pay your fees and that’s it. need mo nalang iprocess ito on site.

  • casey says:

    • jehad says:

      i lost my claim stub,
      how can i claim my nbi

      • Kat Delano says:

        OK lang po yun, as long as may reference number ka po and valid ids. just mention na nawala po ang iyong claim stub at irerelease nila sayo ang iyong NBI Online

  • Tony says:

    Previous clearance, Postal, and TIN are not accepted. Also, your fees are wrong. NBI clearance is p2,000. Also, everyone ALWAYS has a “hit” on their record. It’s only cleared by paying p4,000.
