How to apply NBI Clearance Online
Updated: January 23, 2014
NBI Clearance has become an important part of our lives. Few years ago, we had only one way to obtain a copy of the Clearance but everything changes for the better. Our Government, through the National Bureau of Investigation opened the opportunity to its applicants to for an online application which makes the entire process more efficient.
The big problem with the manual processing of NBI Clearance is that it is too slow (a perfect venue for Red Tape). Majority of the applicants are ranting about the long queue lines and it’s driving them crazy!
NBI Clearance can be easily done online and skip a few steps of the manual old way. It also eliminates the manual filling out of application forms since it can be done online. No more long queue lines. No more wasted time waiting for your turn. NBI clearance online application eliminates 3 steps of the process namely: Data Verification, Payment to the Cashier and Filling out the Application Form!
The only disadvantage or draw back from the new system is it delays you for a day because of the Scheduling Task as to when to visit your selected NBI Clearance Outlet where you process your online application.
Payment Scheme – Where should we pay?
You should pay in the cashier located in the branch where you apply your NBI Clearance. No online payment.
NBI Clearance Fees – How much do we need to pay?
Applicants must pay the exact amount of NBI Clearance Fees according to their purpose of application.
You don’t have to worry about the prices, it will automatically appear when you select the purpose of your application.
But for the purpose of your reference, you can see the list of NBI Clearance Prices according to their purposes.
