kla ko naman pwedeng magpa schedule sa online kung sakali lang.

christopher said...

merun pa ba sa south central market ang nbi renewal?

Graceelicious said...

Hi kyte, I suggest you get a new NBI Clearance and when they ask your details, tell them that you're no longer single and you need to update your surname etc. You can use your Abroad NBI Clearance for local employment for as long as it is not yet expired.

As of today, DFA (passport) is the only government document that can be scheduled online as well as NSO Birth certificate.

Hi Christopher, I can not be certain if NBI at South Central Market is still available, you can check this link:http://www.nbi.gov.ph/nbcs/FAQ.pdf for further details.

Thank you :)

pwd po bang NSO or Brgy. clearance lng dalhin?

my old NBI clearance aq pwd ba ung erenew na papalitan ang birth date ilang days po ba bago makuha yun?

Graceelicious said...

You can bring your NSO birth certificate or any valid ID :) Kahit isa lang pwede na..

I'm not sure if pwede palitan ang date, you can inquire na lang din once you get there, depends if walang hit ang name mo, pag may hit usually umaabot ng 15-20 days, pag wala hit you can just wait for it about 10-15 minutes :)

Graceelicious said...

Hi :-) You can bring 1 valid (SSS, Company ID, etc) basta valid ID to process your NBI Clearance. Wala na pong renewal ngayon, but the process is still the same. Birth certificate is accepted a a valid ID even passport. as for renewing your NBI Clearance abroad, I'm not sure about the process, you can ask your Philippine consulate or embassy about it. Di ko lang sure where kuhanan ng NBI sa Laguna, usually kasi they have a booth at Robinsons or Ever malls or sa City Hall ninyo, 1 day process lang po but if you have a hit, it may take a week.

Thank you :)

pano kung may "hit" or kapangalan ka??? what are the procedures, usually kasi mas mahabang hintayan yung pagkuha...

Graceelicious said...

Hi :) Pag may hit po, you have no other choice but to wait for the scheduled date for verification po yun which is for your own good. :) It usually take a week or so para ma-verify nila :)

Yes, you can have 2 NBI clearance, local or foreign but only bearing the same name or if you're already married, you should get a new NBI clearance.

For other questions and inquiries, please read my blog post above :) thank you!

Hello.. How many days can I wait for the release of my NBI clearance?

Graceelicious said...

Usually, if your name doesn't have a hit, NBI will release your clearance on the day itself when you applied for it, 10-15 minutes but if your name has a hit, it will take a week or so.

Anonymous said...

FYI sa mga kukuha ng NBI Clearance sa Robinsons Mall Dasmariñas. 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM lang office hour, hindi tulad nang nasasaad sa website ng NBI na 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM. When I applied for the NBI clearance there, dumating ako sa mall 10:05, nakuha ko clearance ko 4:48 PM, pang 290 kasi ako, last batch. The last number I heard from the callee was 315. Yun yata ang quota nila. Kaya yung dumating nang 10:30 AM, sorry na lang sila. But you can fall in line naman earlier. Hindi rin nawawala yung mga 'anak ng douche', hindi na siguro magbabago ang pagkakaroon ng VIP treatment sa pagkuha ng NBI clearance.

Good evening Miss Graceelicious, I would like to know kung kailangan ba talaga ng cedula sa pagkuha ng NBI Clearance? Kasi natatakot lang ako baka papuntahin ako sa pila ng kuhaan ng cedula. I'm planning to go to Las Pinas Municipal Hall before 6am tomorrow. An immediate response is much appreciated. Thanks!

As an observance, NBI correctly stands for "National Bulok of Investigation. 2011 pa sila nagpalit ng contractor, ngayon 2013 na 'di parin masolusyonan ang long lines queing, ang bagal pa ng proseso.

Graceelicious said...

Hi :) I'm not sure if you can still use renewal card, I haven't verified it yet. The process is still the same though. Wala na pong renew now, same process na lahat.

If may kapangalan po kayo, same process pa rin po, talaga pong maghihintay kayo kasi need pa nila ipa verify sa NBI Main which is located sa Manila yung name nyo po para ma check yung records. Usually pag may hit ang name, may kapangalan, more or less 2 weeks or yung day talaga na binigay sa inyo.

When you do your nbi clearance at duty free for travel abroad only.bring a photocopy of the ID you will present.its PHP2 inside. You can also do local employment nbi but you need to get both a travel abroad and local employment nbi clearance.

They give out forms by 830am...start everything by 9am.

Anonymous said...

Also at duty free nbi if you have no hit on your namr...be prepared to pay 5php for your printout and envelope.

They also do LTO renewal and registration and student permit every wednesday.bring your documents.

thanks!! :)

Jim Paez said...

In the past, it takes only a week to before you can get your clearance. These days, thanks to the advent of fast internet technology, you can get it after only 20 working days..that's a whole month!! The guys at NBI are very lazy no wonder low profile criminal cases get forgotten in time.

Anonymous said...

Hassle naman yang NBI. I went to QC City Hall, may duplicate daw name ko. Today is Aug 15 pinababalik ako Sept 14 pa... OMG that 1 whole month of delay. I need the NBI ASAP for my job employment.

I am confident naman na wala ako kapangalan saka may birthday at birthplace naman na other field as basis. Grabe, ang bobo lang ng gumawa ng sistema nila.

Unlike before, 1 day lang process. Haisst lousy system ang NBI samantalang ang laki laki ng budget nila at saka on time naman tayo nagbabayad ng buwis!

Hi! Kumuha ako ng NBI clearance last year with my married name on it pero "Annulled" ang nakalagay as my civil status. The clearance is already expired for about 4 months. Kailangan kong kumuha ulit for Travel Abroad and I was advised to use my maiden name na as annulled naman na ako, then ilagay na lang daw ang married name ko as AKA. Tanong ko lang kung pwede ba ito as renewal? Meron bang ibang requirements dito like Marriage Certificate with annotation? Thank you for your reply.

good evening, what time po nagbubukas ang NBI Pasig? super haba din po kaya ang pila dun? just afraid to experience the long line queing like the news on tv. Ngayon lng po uli ako kukuha ng NBI after 3 years.

Gracee Bongolan said...

Hi Ms. Ruby Ann :) All NBI centers, office hours po ang open whether sa mall pa po or sa may mismong NBI office, but since marami po ang nag aapply, maaga po pumupunta yung iba, minsan 5 in the morning pa lang mahaba na pila, 7am nagbibigay na ng number ang mga guards para sa cut off for morning at afternoon. So mas maganda po na maaga talaga kayo makapunta para makasali kayo sa cut off :) thanks po :)

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has recently launched a website where applicants can apply for their clearances both for new applicants and renewals.

One simply has to head over to the NBI Application Form's website and fill up the respective fields. The website then provides the user with a Registration Code and a QR code. The user has the option of also printing out the application form with the encoded data. I was pretty impressed at this point.

The second part of the process is to head to the NBI Clearance Center. In this case I headed to the NBI in Robinsons metro east. Upon arriving at the NBI Regional Office and witnessing the infamous long lines and chaos, I was dismayed to find out that Online Applicants were scheduled to appear on a particular day for their clearances by filling up a paper with their respective name and registration code. Haven't we graduated from this already? Aren't we supposing to be heading towards a paperless system?

Furthermore, the individual who was manning the Online Applicant Schedule forms mentioned that we, online applicants, would still need to line up with the rest of those who didn't fill up the online forms. What's the use of having an online application system, then? At this point, I was disgusted and frustrated at how pathetic and ineffective the system is. I walked out.

et's get rational here. The NBI was given a budget to implement an effective online application system in order to reduce the usual disorganization and mayhem caused at the NBI Clearance Centers when acquiring the blessed NBI Clearance Forms.

Here's how the current system could be improved upon:

Firstly, a separate line for those who filled up the Online Application Forms should be established. It's pointless in lining up with the rest.

Secondly, the NBI should accept payments online may it be via Credit Card Payments, Bank Transfer or the usual over the counter transactions at the NBI Clearance Centers. Come on, we're living in the 21st century already!

Thirdly, an express lane for Online Applicants who have completed the form and paid online can be formed in which their thumb marks and picture can be taken. Once that has been accomplished, the clearance can then be printed out or mailed to a respective address.


The current system in place is useless, broken and redundant. The government is giving the public a false impression that things are improving while in reality they're not. We're not fools nor sheep. The system is backwards and still not at par with what other ASEAN countries have to offer to their citizens. Wasn't the Philippines labeled as Asia's new "Rising Tiger?" The Philippines is being left behind as an "Extinct Asian Tiger."

In General Santos City, processing of NBI clearance is now 1 month! Before, it was just 3 hours! And they do not care whether you applied online or on-site; it doesn't matter to them at all; you all have to wait for 1 month to pay for the clearance and subsequently get it!
