    Hi, I already applied for an NBI clearance online and already paid for it. I checked “NEW APPLICANT” coz I couldn’t find the old one. Then after days I found the old one. Here’s my concern
    1. I didn’t have time to go to an NBI satellite office for BIOMETRIC and ISSUANCE due to my working hours (office hours as well just like to NBI offices)
    2. Is there any chance to apply online then have it delivered to my house without myself going to the NBI satellite office?
    Hope to get an answer. PLease and Thank You
