How to Get NBI Clearance Online | Requirements and Procedures

Updated on January 22, 2013

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. Gcash reference number must either have the amount of P140, P190, P440. It usually costs around P140 for the employment purpose and travel abroad purpose. 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.

Source


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.


Get your NBI Clearance Fast


You can get your NBI Clearance fast by booking an appointment. This way, you won't have to fall in line with lots of people. Your appointment time will be spent properly. It is done by texting:

BOOK <space> Reference Number <space> Location <space> MMDDYYYY <space> HHMM <space> Name and send to 09175638054


Example: BOOK A0005M NCR 04252012 0800 Lito Cruz

Can I just tell during the photo capturing to nbi staff that the Jr and n' has not been included during the online registration? I can not amend it in the registration page. Please advise. Thanks.

      Yo for all of those who doesn't know the HHMM - this is for the booking for you to claim your NBI, This is a military time format please refer to table below:

      0000 = 12:00 midnight

      0100 = 01:00 am

      0200 = 02:00am

      0300 = 03:00am

      0400 = 04:am

      0500 = 05:am

      0600 = 06:00am

      0700 = 07:00am

      0800 = 08:00am

      0900 = 09:00am

      1000 = 10:00am

      1100 = 11:00am

      1200 = 12:00noon

      1300 = 01:00pm

      1400 = 02:00pm

      1500 = 03:00pm

      1600 = 04:00pm

      1700 = 05:00pm

      1800 = 06:00pm

      1900 = 07:00pm

      (*wew this is getting tiring )

      2000 = 08:00pm

      2100 = 09:00pm

      2200 = 10:00pm

      2300 = 11:00pm

      0000 = 12:00midnight

      I hope you find this useful

      @Angel sounds like you have a 'hit' in that case you shouldn't we worried because people have same name sometimes. NBI usually will issue clearance to those with 'hits' after few days. They will tell you the date when your clearance will be issued.

      MPIN is given by Globe to transact online and mobile payments

      @Ruth NBI clearance have a validity date. I think one year from the date of issue. If you are applying for a passport NBI clearance is accepted among the supporting documents. Just make sure your NBI clearance is not expired yet. I think it is accepted at DFA whatever the purpose written in the clearance..

      @Lhav as of now, the NBI online application is only available for Manila. I'm sure NBI regional offices will also adopt this service in the future

      @Ae I think it's possible because they use computerized system. The data will be retrieved same way. For anyone who has connection in the NBI, I think it's possible but to any random applicant, I think they won't allow that unless there is an emergency

      Hi! Thanks for the information. I am planning to get my NBI clearance online but I am not really sure if the system is okay now. Do you have any idea? Thank you!

      NBI emailed me and they are improving their service. I think the system needs a major upgrade

      @Cielo the online application of NBI clearance is currently for NBI UN Taft Avenue in Manila only. Getting one in the province is done the usual personal appointment and processing

      Globe announced recently they're having delay services that's why we notice there are delayed SMS, text and call problems. If you have paid 115, you can contact NBI hotline and ask assistance about it.

      what if i only paid 115 sa globe center? hindi kasi nila sinabi na dapat 135. so void na yung payment ko?

      @Lace Robinsons is now serving government services like DFA passport processing, Philhealth, Pagibig, SSS and NBI. I'd like to say it's very awesome since transactions are faster. In my town, NBI is still not opened so I'm waiting for it.

      @Lan all you need is to type your email address. If it is not registered yet, you will be automatically redirected to the registration page.
