MANILA — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) launched on Monday the full implementation of “Online Registration” for securing an NBI Clearance.
According to NBI Director Virgilio Mendez, the new system was launched to expedite the processing of securing clearances and not to burden the Filipinos of queuing up in long lines in NBI offices.
Under the new system, an applicant for an NBI Clearance must register on the website clearance.nbi.gov.ph and fill up the online registration form and complete the information being asked.
An applicant must set the day and time of appointment in the nearest NBI Clearance Center found on the website andchoose the mode of payment of the processing fee through the e-Payment system such as payment in the bank by way of online banking and over-the-counter.
Payment can also be made in the Bayad Centers, or through mobile payment.
It is important that an applicant must remember the reference number of his appointment to be able to make the payment on the chosen mode of payment.
After the payment, the applicant must appear on the day and time of appointment as scheduled at the NBI Clearance Center for the photo capture and fingerprint biometrics.
The printed copy of an individual’s NBI Clearance can already be secured on the same day.
