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