The Department of Justice (DOJ) announces that the applicant for NBI clearance can fill-out the Application Form and pay online thru the help of accredited banks and Bayad Centers. The NBI online registration system aims to eliminate the long lines and chaos of applicants every time they need an NBI clearance.
Although the system is not completely online because you still need to appear personally in NBI office for photo and fingerprint capture, still it shortens the process of getting NBI clearance. In the old system or if you apply in the NBI Office you have 6 steps to complete to get the clearance; Fill-up Form > Data Check > Payment > Encoding > Data Entry > Photo & Fingerprint Capture > Clearance Printing.
If you use the Online registration system you have only 3 steps to complete; Online Registration, Appointment and e-Payment > Photo & Fingerprint Capture > Clearance Printing. It eliminates the three steps where you need to fall in line and wait for your turn.
NBI Announce that effective December 27, 2016, the NBI Clearance Processing will strictly implement the NO APPOINTMENT NO ENTRYPOLICY for NBI clearance applicants. No appointment will be available on the same day of application. All NBI Clearance applicants are advised to register online and have their appointment date set in advance.
