The next step will be clicking the “APPLY FOR CLEARANCE” button.


The website will bring you to the scheduling of your NBI APPOINTMENT page.

NBI Online Appointment

The page consist of three section. The first section is what I call the “scheduling” section where you can assign the date, time and NBI branch where you want to process your NBI Clearance.

Choose the best date and time that fits your busy schedule. I also encourage you that you choose the most convenient NBI Branch when processing your NBI clearance online.

For example, we will be choosing the NBI Main Building at Taft Avenue as our branch and we will be choosing the date January 14, 2020 at the afternoon as our scheduled date and time.

The second section is the “summary of your schedule”. This will show you the summary of you scheduled NBI Online Appointment that you chose at the first section. The image below shows the exact example of a summary of your NBI Clearance Appointment that we have just placed.

It also shows you the amount to be paid which is P130 plus P25 (that is for the NBI Clearance Fee and E-Service Fee).

The third section is the payment option section where you can see the list of payment options available in paying your fees.

You may choose from the six (6) choices which ever is convenient to you and these are the following:

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

Once you have selected your preferred payment option. The NBI Clearance Reference Number will appear. Take note of this as this will be use in paying your fees.


Please note that all scheduled NBI Online Appointments are not yet final unless you pay the fee.

When paying for your fees, as mentioned earlier, the one that you choose must be the most convenient payment option for you. For example, We will be choosing the 7-Eleven as our payment option because there’s a nearby store.

We will be publishing an article totally focused on NBI Clearance Fee payment. But for now, we’ll be skipping this.

The same NBI Reference Number will also be use when processing your NBI Clearance when you visit your chosen branch from your scheduled NBI Appointment

Common Questions about NBI Clearance Appointment

QUESTION: What if I missed my schedule in NBI Clearance?

You can still go the next day and process your application. Your Reference Number for the application have an expiration of fifteen (15) days including the weekends.

QUESTION: I have set an appointment and paid it, can I go one or several days earlier?

Let me just expand this question for better explanation. Say for example, I set an appointment on January 15, 2020. The question is can I go earlier, let’s say January 5, 2020 or January 14, 2020?

The straight forward answer is NO.

The reason behind this is the National Bureau of Investigation implemented the automation and appointment system of NBI Application due minimize and manage the volume of applicants. Everyday, an NBI Branch has a quota or maximum number of applicants that it can cater to avoid the long queue lines and backlogs.

If you go early, you will be contributing to the unexpected volume of applicants. This is the same reason why walk in NBI Clearance applicants are not entertain.

Plus, an appointment is a formal arrangement between you (as an applicant) and the NBI to meet or visit at a particular time and place.

QUESTION: Can I go to an NBI Branch different from my scheduled NBI Clearance Appointment?

I’m expanding this question for better explanation. So for example, I have set an appointment in NBI Main Building located at Taft Avenue. My appointment is confirmed meaning I already paid it. But then I decided that I want to process this in Quezon City Hall, is this practice allowed?

The straight forward answer is NO.

Again, you may read my answer explanation to the above question.
