|NBI Launched 3 Easy Steps Clearance System|
National Bureau of Investigation has launched a new and improved system that will surely benefit those Filipino masses that secure clearance from the agency.
From the long and tiring 6-step procedure that usually takes a one whole day, the new process is now only 3 steps and will only need a few minutes of your time to complete. The step one is Online Registration, Appointment and e-Payment, step two is Photo Capture and Fingerprint Biometrics and the last step is the Clearance Printing.

For the first step, you must visit clearance.nbi.gov.ph and complete the application form, the website is accessible virtually on any platform (PC, Mac, mobile) and any browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc). After completing the registration, it will prompt you to select your desired NBI clearance center (as of this writing, there are 72) as well as the appointment date. The amount of fee that you are going to pay depends on the purpose of securing the clearance. The payment can be made through online banking, over-the-counter (bank and non-bank), ATM and Globe G-cash. As you may noticed, step one can be done at any place (as long as you have access to the site) at the comfort of your own time.
After that, all you have to do is visit the nearest clearance processing center near you at your scheduled appointment date for step two and step three, just be sure to bring the receipt or proof of payment as NBI personnel will asks for it. Based on my own experience, these two processes will only take less than five minutes, as long as no 'hit' will appear on your record.
