NBI Clearance Online Application Schedule

Here’s how you can schedule an appointment to process your NBI Clearance.

When you arrive at this page, you have four (4) task to do. The first one is select the NBI Branch you want to process your NBI Clearance. Our advice is to choose the most convenient branch for you. We have experienced a fast and convenient processing in NBI Main Building located at U.N ave corner Taft Ave.

Now scroll down and up using the arrow button to show the list of NBI Clearance Branches and select what you preferred.


The second and third task is to choose when and what time you will process your NBI application. This means that you will be choosing a date in the calendar of what’s your preferred day. Each day is enclosed to a white box just like a regular calendar.

The next is to choose whether you’re going to the branch in the morning or the afternoon. There are two (2) option for this, AM and PM. Just click the blue boxes shown in the calendar within the date you have chosen.

NBI Online Appointment

The last thing will be to choose the payment option. You know that NBI Clearance Application comes with a fee, right? Well if not, then it will cost you at around P155 plus service fee.

But before you select the payment option, make sure to do double check and verify the summary of your NBI Clearance Online Application. Its something like this:

Appointment Schedule:
Friday, January 10, 2020 PM
Please pay before January 25, 2020

Back to the payment option, you have six (6) payment option to choose from:

  • 7-Eleven
  • Bank Over the Counter
  • Online Banking
  • ECPay
  • Bayad Center Outlets
  • Bayad Center Mobile App

We usually recommend paying your NBI Clearance Fee at the nearest 7-Eleven because its hassle free. You just have to find a 7-Eleven equipped with Cliqq booth and you can pay your fees instantly!

Once you’ve selected the payment option, it will show you the summary again. Click the Proceed to Payment button to generate a Reference number to be used for payment.


The NBI Reference Number looks like this:


All you need to do is copy this and bring it to the 7-Eleven or whatever payment option you have chosen and pay it there.

After payment, all you need to do now is to wait for your schedule appointment for your NBI Clearance application.


Remember your schedule? Yes, even if you already paid your fees, it doesn’t mean that you just just go to the branch and barge in to process your application. They will not entertain you and ask you to leave!

You can’t process your NBI Clearance Application earlier than your scheduled appointment!

When your appointment date arrives, make sure to go to the NBI Clearance on time. That is, if you scheduled an appointment in the morning you must go there in the morning. Not afternoon!

NBI Clearance Application Expectation

When you arrive in the NBI Branch, you should expect to do the following:

  • Photo Capture
  • Biometrics
  • Signing (Signature)
  • Final verification of your Personal Information
  • Possible Releasing
  • Possible HIT Status on your NBI Clearance

Photo Capture, Biometrics and Signature

The aforementioned activities will be instructed to you by the NBI Clearance Staff. He or she will guide you on how to do this especially the biometrics. It’s a no brainer and all you need to do is just follow their instruction.

Final Verification of NBI Personal Information

Right after the things that you have done above, you will instructed to double check the personal information written on the screen. Make sure to check it for possible errors. If you found one, you an politely ask the NBI Staff to do the correction for you.

If you want to change any information written such as your Name (First, Middle or Last), you should present at least one valid ID showing the correct information.

NBI Clearance Releasing

Ideally, NBI Clearance will be released right after the final verification of NBI Personal Information. The staff will ask you to proceed to the Printing Area where all you need is to wait for your name to be called. This is the time where they will print your NBI Clearance and hand it over to you.

Congratulations! You succeeded in your NBI Clearance Online Application journey!


We’ve already tackled this topic in our previous blog “YOU’VE BEEN HIT: REASONS WHY YOU CAN’T AFFORD A ONE DAY PROCESSING NBI CLEARANCE!” but for the sake of others who haven’t read it, we’ll be discussing this briefly.


There are time that you will be asked by the staff to return some other day to claim your NBI Clearance. They will mention that you have a “HIT” status and go back after ten (10) working days.

That is because you have a hit status wherein you have a namesake and further verification will be done before they release it.

Don’t worry about it. All you have to do is to wait and return when the assigned or instructed date arrives.

  • Fabian Baltazar says:

    Cutting the first step on application is a good move, sana we can improve more by opening more payment system either sa bank or bayad center using the reference number generated sa online registration….suggest ko din para mabawasan ang pila sa biometric ay i categorize kung new applicant ( need to go to biometric ) if renewal ( no need to go to biometric, kasi sa pagkakaalam ko hindi nagbabago ang finger prints pag adult na – we use finger print biometric sa dating work ko to enter our office)…un namang concern sa hit or not hit ang name mo can be address upon online registration mo, meaning upon registration ko in 3 days in advance dapat nasasala na un may hit na name at na ve-verify so if after three days ako kukuha na verify na un hit name ko, this will eradicate na babalik uli un tao to get their clearance , meaning pag punta ng tao ay sigurado na nyang makukuha un clearance nya…this just a suggestion to NBI, if they can think of a better process the better , ang gusto lang
