Last Updated on

When was the last time you learned something new? Well today, what you will be learning is not really new at all! But I will not waste your time reading this. This is all about the NBI Clearance Requirements and everything in between.


NBI Clearance requirements are not hard to gather. Some can easily be obtained by just going to your Local Municipality. It’s important to be prepared before going to NBI Clearance Outlets. The more prepared you are, the better your NBI Clearance application experience will be.

Never (ever) apply for an NBI Clearance without these requirements!

Valid IDs

Upon entering the NBI Clearance Outlet, the first step you should do is to secure a copy of the NBI Clearance application form. As a requirement, the NBI Clearance personnel will ask you to present two (2) valid Identification cards as a proof of identity. You can select two of the following Identification cards listed below:


NBI Clearance Application Fee

Cash is essential, which means they don’t really care if you have a complete set of your Valid IDs as a requirement. There are fees that you need to pay. Usually, the NBI Clearance Online application fees range from P115 to P415 depending on the NBI Clearance Application Purposes.

Ball pen!

There are a lot of people who forgets to bring their own ball pens. Remember that you will be filling out the NBI Clearance Application form. Though it’s not really bad to borrow someone’s pen, but to skip the hassle, bring your own!


Now that you’ve got everything ready, get a good night’s sleep and be sure to observe the proper dress code to be accommodated inside the NBI Clearance building.

Other Information

When you applied for NBI Clearance and you realised that you lack of application requirements and you’re wondering where to get the following Valid IDs listed above, here, let me help you:

The following are my general overview where you can gent


Valid Philippine Passport – you can easily get one in Department of Foreign Affairs. You can set an appointment online through their official website Passport.gov.ph . Select your preferred date and time and also the location where you’re planning to apply for a passport. Its really easy actually!

Voter’s ID – this is usually obtained through the office of Commission of Election. Releasing of Voter’s ID is not that easy. You have to be a registered voter in your municipality where you are residing before they give you one. Another problem with the voter’s ID is you can get registered only on the specified schedule assigned by COMELEC. You can check out the schedule of your local COMELEC office.

Driver’s License – can be obtained through Land Transportation Office. This valid ID is one of the most sought after by many people because (one) its a requirement for driving (obviously) and (two) its also easy to apply for one. Though in the past few months, we’ve heard lot of problems with the issuance of the laminated plastic cards but its all good now. I believe our Government had solved the issues and the LTO offices are now issuing laminated Driver’s License.

SSS ID – issued by the Social Security System. If you are an employed individual and you’re paying the SSS premium monthly then you are entitled to have an SSS ID. The process is easy. All you have to do is go to the nearest SSS Branch and apply for one. All you have to fill up an application form, take you photo and submit it! The best thing about it is that its for free and SSS will mail it to your mailing address.

GSIS UMID – issued by Government Service Insurance System for Government Employees. Not all can apply for this one. This is only applicable to all government employees who’s a member of GSIS.

Postal ID – can be obtained through your local Post Office if you want one. The requirement is NSO Birth Certificate and an application form which you can get in the Postal Office.

TIN ID – issued by Bureau of Internal Revenue. Make sure that you already have your TIN Number before they issue you one.

PRC License – issued by Professional Regulatory Commission after you passed the required board examinations.

School ID – issued by the School if the applicant is still studying.

Philhealth ID – issued by Philhealth.


Alien Certificate of Registration – can be obtained in Bureau of Immigration for Foreign Applicants.

Senior Citizen – go to your Municipal’s Office of the Senior Citizens Affair.

      Hello, mas hassle po pag walang dalang form, if you have internet access pwede naman po online na lang kayo mag fill up ng form then print it, kasi naranasan ko na pong pumunta sa NBI ng walang dalang form, Sobrang hassle, time consuming yung pag pila para magfill up at iregister yung form mo.

    Hi good day! In regards po sa ONLINE APPLICATION FOR NBI CLEARANCE…how does it works? Do I have to go to the NBI and asks someone to do the online application for me o ako na mismo ang mag fifill up on my own PC? Yung workmate ko kasi, he applied online but he went as well to the NBI and asked someone to do the application for him. Nagsabi lang daw sya na apply sya thru online and that someone filled ou the form for him tapos ayun na picturena then thumb marking and payment. Ganyan po ba yung process kapag online application? Thanks and God Bless!
