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.

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.

      Yes. If im not mistaken, yan ung NBI ID card na iniisyu dati pero pinatigil na po ang issuance nyan. And I think hindi na din po yan maituturing na Valid ID.
