NBI Clearance – one of the favorite requirements in getting a passport or a job in the Philippines. What is an NBI Clearance, btw, bakit natin kailangan ito? It is to make sure that you don’t have any criminal liability or charges.

Now we will discuss how to get an NBI Clearance Online. This generation is so lucky with technology and such since, in my time, I would wake up early just to get a good spot or have a number for the NBI Clearance. You line for checking, picture taking and paying; grabe ang tagal nun kesa ngayon punta ka lang sa appointed time mo, picture then tapos na!

Below are the steps on how to get an NBI Clearance Online:

1. Go to this website.

2. See “Register New Account” and choose between “Yes” or “No” – From 2014 until today If you have an old NBI, then choose yes if not no.

3. Fill-up the form below. (This is shown if you checked NO, if YES, it will ask your old NBI Number). Then click sign-up. If wala kang middle name, then you can put “Not Applicable” or “MNU” (Middle Name Unknown.)  If you have “Ñ” and it isn’t accepted, please take note of that during your appointment para ma-change nila.

4. Sign-in using the email address and password you used in signing up.

5. On the upper-right corner under your name, click “Edit Information.”

6. Fill-up the necessary information. When doing this, it’s better if you have your birth certificate with you since most information is found there like your Parent’s Name and Birth-dates.

7. Review and Save Information. If ever you have mistakes in your information and already paid, ask the person to edit your information during the day of your appointment. 

There you have it, you are now a step closer to having your NBI Clearance online! What’s next?
