How to Get NBI Clearance Online | Requirements and Procedures
Getting NBI clearance can now be done online. NBI clearance is one of the major document requirements in applying for a job, enrolling in a school, applying for a visa or travel abroad, completing school requirements, employment records and even getting a passport, SSS number and many more. Because NBI clearance is the paper that proves everyone or an office that an individual has and had no criminal records and is cleared and free from any civil cases and obligations.
In the early times, getting an NBI clearance takes about a half day. It would take you long lines, number of requirements, filling out lots of forms, ID pictures, sweats and tantrums. But now, thank goodness the National Bureau of Investigation has made the generous effort to open the NBI online processing which caters to everyone. They call it NBI eClearance facility.
Requirements for the NBI Clearance Online Application and Renewal
- Payment of Fees thru GCash or any Globe Payment Centers
- Your Reference Number
- Your QR Code
- 2 valid IDs (government IDs like SSS, GSIS, Passport, Voter’s ID, Driver’s License, and company ID)
Procedures for NBI Clearance Online Application
1. Pay the processing fee via GCash or to any Globe Payment Centers nationwide if you don’t have GCash account or don’t know how to use GCash yet. It usually costs around P115 for the employment purpose and travel purpose. You need to pay P20 for the e-clearance convenience fee. NBI has rolled this back but they are not pretty clear if it’s applicable to all. So you must pay P135 to be sure. I have put the complete list of fees at the end of this article.
To use GCash text <Amount> (space) MPIN and send to 28829175638053
Example: 135 1234 and send to 28829175638053
2. You will then receive a payment Reference Number via text message from Globe. Keep this and keep another copy in a paper so you won’t forget in case the SMS was deleted or your phone was missing.
On the other hand, if you paid via Globe Payment Outlet, just keep the receipt and the Reference Number they gave you. You will use the reference number in registering and validating your online NBI clearance application. This is also needed in claiming the form.
3. Go to the NBI Online Application Facility
4. Fill up the account registration and validation of payment and follow the instructions in the given window. If you used GCash, you can use the Reference Number they sent you plus your mobile number. Otherwise, use the date registered if you paid via Globe Payment Center.
Type the Captcha.
Check your details carefully before proceeding to hit VALIDATE.
5. Once you successfully done the application, they will give you a QR Code that looks like at the right. Print it out and bring this with you when you will go for the next steps of application such as the biometric scan and photo capture in the NBI eClearance in UN Avenue, Taft Ermita, Manila. This facility is currently available in Manila.
