NBI Clearance Requirements and New Location in Caloocan City

by Ronald Redito on January 19, 2010

My Great Web page

Hey guys,

You might have noticed that I only have 3 blog posts this month prior to this. No, I am not retiring in the online business nor going back to the regular day job or call center. Never again! That’s for sure. Making money online in the Philippines is more profitable and enjoyable!

I am here in Manila accompanying my girl friend in processing her requirements for overseas employment. I have learned a lot from the experience and thought that these would be beneficial to my visitors. There are a number of requirements to submit and you need firsthand experience in order to save time and energy. It is better to research online to know the exact location of the offices you need to transact with.

In this post, I will deal on how to get NBI Clearance.

If you are getting your Clearance in Metro Manila, the NBI Clearance Center has moved to a new location. You can find it at the 5th Floor of Victory Central Mall in Caloocan City.

The former location was at Carriedo Plaza Building, Carriedo St. cor Estero Cegado and Sales St., Quiapo, Manila. DON’T GO THERE!!! Lol

So what do you need to bring to get an NBI clearance?

If you are a first time applicant, bring any of the following:

NBI Clearance Requirements

***In the absence of any of the above, a birth certificate issued by NSO may be presented.

For Renewal:

a. Personal Copy of the old NBI Clearance issued not earlier than 1994. Photocopy is not accepted.

b. In the absence of the old NBI clearance, applicant is required to accomplish a new Application Form (Fingerprint Card).

How much do you need to pay?

The fee depends on the purpose of your application:

1. Naturalization, Cancellation on ACR, Repatriation: Php 415.00

2. Change of Name, Business License, NFA, SEC, TBC, Adoption, POEA, PRA Requirement, Permit to Carry Firearm.: Php 165.00

3. Travel Abroad, Immigration Requirement, Visa Seaman, Seaman’s Book, TBC for RTO, Marriage Requirement.: Php 115.00

4. Local Employment, Customs Pass ID, Enlistment AFP, DND, DOT Requirement, ID Purposes and Other Requirement.: Php 115.00

For those with old NBI clearance or renewal applicant, you may proceed to the following Kiosks in the following locations:

Park Square I, Makati City

SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City

Tutuban Center Mall, Divisoria Manila

HK Sun Plaza, Macapagal Avenue, Pasay City

Important note: If you have “HIT” issue or with the same name, don’t go to these kiosks. My girl friend queued for 4 hours in SM Megamall but advised to go to the main clearance center in Caloocan City because of the HIT issue.

For more questions, please refer to FAQ page: http://www.nbi.gov.ph/faq.htm

You next concern is the process inside the clearance center. Please refer to NBI Clearance Processing System. http://www.nbi.gov.ph/clearance1.htm

Good luck.

banjo toledo September 21, 2011 at 1:50 PM

meron pa po ba renewal sa HK SUN PLAZA SA Macapagal ave.?

okia September 21, 2011 at 5:48 PM

it was really disgusting that nbi didn’t give notice to the public about the problem they are experiencing.. malaking abala talaga…

seah September 26, 2011 at 1:10 AM

remind u all that there are no more renewal of nbi at any kiosk. All should fill out a form and only one valid I.d can be use as a requirement though you can show them ur old nbi clearance but like anyone you should also fall in line and wait for your turn. Tha main in taft can accomodate 2-3 thousand people, now in ever caloocan change into 300 but in ever recto they can accomodate as much as they can. Just bring any valid I.d or ur old nbi and 115 php.
steps 1: fill out a form
step 2: pay 115
step 3: staff will encode info from your form and show ur i.d
step 4: image capture (note: if you have a hit, if you have a common name or some have the same name as u are. You are said to come back at the date written on ur O.R)
step 5: wait for the release of your new nbi
