Valid IDs Accepted in Applying in NBI Clearance

When you arrive at the NBI Clearance Outlets, you are required to present both your Valid and acceptable identification documents (Valid IDs).

There are several Valid IDs in the Philippines available that are accepted in various transaction in validating a person’s identity such as his or her complete name, address, age and most of the time his or her physical appearance.

Having an updated or recent photo in your Valid ID is very important. In that situation,  you can easily prove your identity in any situation. For example, If you’re opening a bank account, the bank representative will ask you to provide one. Or even if you are trying to board an airplane, the airport crew will ask you to present a valid ID. It’s the same when getting an NBI Clearance.

After you arrive at any NBI Clearance Branch, you are required to present any Valid Identification to show that the reason for which your application is in good faith. Without presenting any valid id, no matter how important your NBI Application is, they will not grant it to you due to lack of requirements. The NBI Clearance personnel has the right to deny you the service you are requesting due to non compliance of Valid ID Requirement.

Please note that the list of valid IDs below are strictly as is and only the following valid identification documents are acceptable. If it’s not on this list, it’s not acceptable, and your application will not be acknowledged.

The Valid ID you presented including any required signatures, must be original, not photocopied or reproduced and should not be expired so make sure to check it also. This is one of the common mistakes by most of the people but with this guide since you know the list of of accepted ID’s to use in a href=”https://nbiclearance.org/nbi-clearance-online/” alt=”NBI Clearance Online” title=”NBI Clearance Online”>NBI Clearance Online Application you just need for the easiest one to get.

    Hello, I’m a Filipino passport holder who have not lived in Philippines more than 25 years. It is my first time to stay in Philippines. And I only have a valid passport.

    All these months it has been VERY frustrating for me even to apply voters ID, postal ID, because two valid ID’s are always required. Reason I’m getting an NBI just to submit what Voter ID requires.
    How can I provide these ID’s as I am trying to sign up to get these ID’s? It clearly does not make sense.

    Is there any solution for Filipinos first time in Philippines? I would really love to hear a speedy response on this matter. Thank you so much.
