An NBI Online Reference number will be generated. Take a screenshot of the reference number or write it down. This is a crucial information to your NBI Clearance Online Application.

I can’t put emphasis on this but I will repeat it again, the NBI Online Reference number is important information. This is used during the NBI Clearance Fee payment and the actual processing of your NBI Clearance.

So make sure you have a copy of this.

Also, notice that the Total amount to be paid (Php 155) is shown? This is the final amount which you need to pay using your GCash app.

NBI Online Reference Number

I will temporarily leave the NBI Clearance website and use my mobile phone to access my GCash app.

Log in to your GCash app and go to the Pay Bills section.

Gcash Pay Bills Transaction

From the list of Billers, use the search functionality by typing “NBI” on it.

GCash Paybills Search Biller

Remember I told you that the NBI Online Reference Number is important? This the (first) time you will use it.

Enter the NBI Clearance Reference Number, your contact number, Amount and your email address.

Enter Biller's Information including NBI Clearance Reference Number

Review what you have written. Make sure you wrote the NBI Clearance Reference Number correctly because NBI Online doesn’t refund the payments made to incorrect Reference Number.

Press the “Confirm” button to pay for your NBI Online Fee.

Gcash Payment to Confirm

If the payment is successful, the GCash receipt will be shown. Take a screenshot and save this to your mobile device.

GCash Receipt for payment of NBI Clearance

We have finished our task in GCash. We can now return to the NBI Online website to check the status of our scheduled appointment.

In the sidebar, go to “Transactions” page and find your NBI Online Reference Number.

Transactions Page

The status of your Reference Number must be “Paid” already since you have made the payment using your GCASH.

Check status of appointment

Now that you are finished with the payment, this ends the scheduling of our NBI Online Appointment. The next thing to do is to wait for the appointment date that we have scheduled before going to the NBI Branch.

Processing your NBI Clearance at the NBI Branch

When date of your Appointment arrives, we are required to appear in the NBI Branch we have selected.

Make sure that we bring two Valid IDs, the NBI Clearance Reference Number and the copy/screenshot of the receipt from GCASH.

Go to the NBI Branch on your scheduled appointment date and time.

Photo Capture, Biometrics and Personal Information Verification

When you arrive at the NBI Branch, expect these three (3) things to be done.

1. Photo Capture – where you will be asked to stand in from of the camera and have your photo taken.Note that the photo will be attached to your NBI Clearance.

2. Biometrics scanning – this is the step where all you fingers will be scanned and saved to the NBI Clearance Database.

3. Personal Information Verification – the last step and one of the important step. The NBI Staff asks you to verify all the personal information written in your NBI Clearance are correct. The NBI Staff will show you his/her computer screen so you can easily verify.

If you found any errors or incorrect information, this is your chance to correct it. Don’t hesitate to mention this to them and they will be gladly modify it for you.

Releasing of NBI Clearance

Right after the steps above, the NBI Staff will submit your NBI Online data and perform checks and verifications. The preliminary checks and verifications will be quick and the result will be readily available immediately.

Wait for the instruction of the NBI Staff. There will be two kinds of instruction the NBI Staff will tell you:

1. The NBI Staff asks you to proceed to the Releasing section, that means you don’t have a HIT.

Proceed to the Releasing section and wait for your name to be called.

The NBI Staff give you your printed NBI Clearance. You can now go home.


2. The NBI Staff asks you to return after ten (10) working days, this means that you have a HIT. To explain it, the NBI Staff holds your NBI Clearance for release because your name or your namesake have a criminal record or derogatory record.

Calm yourself!

You shouldn’t be worried if you don’t have a criminal record.

Unfortunately, you have to wait for ten (10) working days. Also you have to go back to the same NBI Branch where you process your NBI Clearance branch to personally claim your NBI Clearance.
