NBI Clearance Requirements – Never (Ever) Apply for an NBI Clearance without these!

When was the last time you learned something new? Well today, what you will be learning is not really new at all! But I will not waste your time reading this. This is all about the NBI Clearance Requirements and everything in between.

NBI Clearance requirements are not hard to gather. Some can easily be obtained by just going to your Local Municipality. It’s important to be prepared before going to NBI Clearance Outlets. The more prepared you are, the better your NBI Clearance application experience will be.





Never (ever) apply for an NBI Clearance without these requirements!


Valid IDs

Upon entering the NBI Clearance Outlet, the first step you should do is to secure a copy of the NBI Clearance application form. As a requirement, the NBI Clearance personnel will ask you to present two (2) valid Identification cards as a proof of identity. You can select two of the following Identification cards listed below:

    The requirement is any two (2) of the following valid Identification Cards:

  • Valid passport
  • Voter’s ID
  • Driver’s License
  • PRC License
  • SSS ID
  • Postal ID
  • School ID
  • TIN ID
  • Philhealth ID
  • Authenticated Birth Certificate
  • Alien Cert of Registration
  • Senior Citizen
  • Previous Copy of NBI Clearance

NBI Clearance Application Fee

Cash is essential, which means they don’t really care if you have a complete set of your Valid IDs as a requirement. There are fees that you need to pay. Usually, the NBI Clearance application fees range from P115 to P415 depending on the NBI Clearance Application Purposes.

Purpose of Application Clearance Fee
Naturalization P 415.00
Cancellation of Alien Certificate Of Registration (ACR)
Business Requirement P165.00
Change of Name
Permit to Carry Firearms
NFA, POEA, PRA, SEC Requirement
Travel Abroad P 115.00
Visa Seaman
Local Employment
Other Requirement

Ball pen!

There are a lot of people who forgets to bring their own ball pens. Remember that you will be filling out the NBI Clearance Application form. Though it’s not really bad to borrow someone’s pen, but to skip the hassle, bring your own!

Now that you’ve got everything ready, get a good night’s sleep and be sure to observe the proper dress code to be accommodated inside the NBI Clearance building.
