NBI Online Website

The NBI Clearance website is designated by the NBI agency to collect data on all those who wish to apply for NBI clearance. This website also oversees all the NBI online appointments of all applicants to facilitate the flow of people in each branch and to avoid over crowding.

NBI Online Renewal or NEW Application

If you already have an NBI Online account, you can use the NBI Online login to your account with your email address you previously used and your nominated password.

NBI Online LogIn Website

If you have forgotten your password, you can use the “Forgot Password” feature of the website. While you may have forgotten your email address, the fastest thing you can do is create a new NBI Online account.

Just fill out the NBI Online Registration form we display.

Enter all required personal information and tick the “I am not a robot” captcha as well as a check box that says “Read and Accept Terms of Services“.

I accept the Terms of Services by clicking the “Agree” button.

After that, just hit the “Sign Up” button.

Wait for the NBI One Time Password (OTP) message that the NBI Online Website will send to your mobile phone.

NBI Online Registration Application Form

The NBI Online application form you will see is not yet finished. There are additional personal information you need to write down so you can start scheduling your NBI appointment.

Again, write down all the required personal information on the NBI Online Registration form.

These personal details needed are as follows:

  • Nickname
  • AKA/Other Name
  • Civil Status (if you want to change it)

Please take note that all personal information that you’ve written on your NBI Online Registration Application Form will reflect your actual NBI Clearance so just make sure all of them are correct.

In case you made an error or mistake in writing your personal information, you can still edit it using the “EDIT” button after you have clicked the saved button.

The only ones that are not allowed to edit on the NBI Online Website are your Complete Name (First and Last name), your Birth Date and the email address you used.

After finishing the NBI Online Application Form, click the Save Information button at the lowest part of the form.

Now you are done with the NBI Online Registration Application Form. You can go to the next step.

NBI Online Appointment

The NBI Online Appointment, as we mentioned in the previous paragraphs, is one way to make our NBI Clearance Online easier to apply.

To continue our process of applying for NBI Clearance, we will go to the step where each applicant is required to schedule an appointment with NBI Online before going to the NBI branch.

To do this, simply click the button that says “APPLY FOR CLEARANCE” which you will see on the right if you’re using your desktop or laptop.

Apply for NBI Clearance Online

After pressing the said button, a confirmation window will appear asking you what type of ID and ID number you will present when applying NBI Online.

Just press the “I Agree” button to continue the NBI Online process.

A window will appear again mentioning some import reminders. You may read it or not. Click the “Close” button after reading.

From the long list of NBI Branches, select one using the drop down arrow. It is best to choose the closest and most convenient NBI Online Branch from where you currently live.

Schedule an Appointment for NBI Clearance

After choosing the NBI Branch, its time for you to choose the day and what time you should go to the NBI Branch.

In the calendar displayed on the NBI Online website, you can choose your preferred day. All dates highlighted or colored in blue are available. In one day, there are two slots to choose from. This is the AM or PM. Just choose the time you have the ability to go to the branch.

Payment of NBI Online Registration

After you have set the schedule for your NBI Online Application, you can choose which payment method you want.

You have six payment method options to choose from, these are the following.

  • Bank over the Counter
  • Online Bank
  • Payment Center Outlets
  • Pay Center Mobile App
  • ECPay
  • 7-Eleven

From the above options, just choose the payment option that you know will be easy and convenient for you.

NBI Clearance Fee Payment Option

If I were to ask, the easiest and fastest would be to pay NBI Clearance Fees at 7-Eleven.

But you can also choose Bayad Center because of its many branches spread throughout the country.

If your bank has the capability to pay NBI Clearance Online through their website or mobile app, it’s a good idea to use it. Since you don’t have to leave your home. Just make sure to check with your bank if they allow NBI Online payments using their facility.

You can also use the Bayad Center App if you have one.

Lastly and my least favorite, is to pay your NBI Clearance Fee by going to the bank. I do not recommend this because first and foremost, there are many people in the bank trying to do their own transactions. There are usually long queue lines.

Unlike Bayad center and 7-Eleven where customers or clients’ payment are processed quickly.

Going back to our tutorial, just choose one of the six options mentioned.

Click the boxes containing the payment method selected. For this tutorial, our choice is 7-Eleven.

A small window will appear, just press “Proceed” button.

Another window will appear where it will show you your transaction summary and how much NBI Online Fee is.

Please note that this is not the final amount of the NBI Clearance Fee. This will change due to other charges.

Now, press the “Proceed to Payment” button to continue.

After the last button is pressed, another small window will appear showing your NBI Reference Number.

Please write it down or take a picture or screenshot.

This NBI Reference number will be used or will be presented when you pay at 7-Eleven or Payment Center. Please provide your NBI Reference Number to the cashier so that it can be encoded and processed.

NBI Reference Number

This is the final step in NBI Clearance Online after you pay your NBI Online Fee.

The next is the actual process of your NBI Clearance where you are required to go to the NBI Clearance Branch on the day and time of your choice.

Processing your NBI Online Application

This section is designed to discuss the most important part of the NBI Clearance Online Application.

Before you go to the NBI Clearance Branch of your choice, make sure you have two valid IDs and your NBI Reference Number.

If you do not have a Valid ID, you will not be allowed to the enter the gates of NBI. All applicants who doesn’t have an NBI Reference Number are also not entertained because Walk In for NBI Clearance Application is prohibited.

Note that NBI Online Requirements must be presented.

In this step, here we will experience the following activities:

  • Photo capture
  • Biometrics
  • Final Verification and Quality Control
  • and Releasing of NBI Clearance

For Photo Capture, just like any other normal Valid ID. You, as an applicant will stand in front of the camera to take your photo. This photo will be printed on your actual NBI Clearance. You have nothing to do here but to listen to the NBI Clearance Staff’s instructions. Don’t forget to at the camera!

For Biometrics, you will be guided by the NBI Clearance Staff to get your finger prints. Your fingers will be placed on their finger print scanner and will be digitally mapped to be placed in their database.

For Final Verification, all of your written personal information on the NBI Online Website will be displayed on the NBI Clearance Staff’s computer screen. Please double check every personal information.

If you find something wrong or want to change it, here’s your chance. Just tell the NBI Clearance Staff what details you would like to change or correct and they will help you gladly.

Confirm that all the personal information encoded are correct so that it can be submitted and processed.

In this step, you will also know if you have HIT or None.

If you have HIT, the NBI Clearance Staff will tell you immediately and advise you to return someday to claim your NBI Clearance.

If you do not have HIT, you will be advised to go to the Releasing Section to claim the NBI Clearance printed.
