..well, this was before..
Obviously, I cant contain my happiness when I got my NBI Clearance last month. I got it without any hassle, without waking up at 4am, and without any queuing! Thank goodness for this NBI online service.
Because I felt so blessed to have done this, Im sharing with everyone how I easily applied for my NBI E-Clearance.
1. I paid the amount of P115 (standard rate for local employment) thru GCASH. A confirmation text message is sent along with the Reference Number.
2. I browsed NBI Clearance website - https://nbi-online.com/login and filled up the registration (located on the right side). I entered my email address and the GCASH reference number.

3. I was redirected to this page where I entered my information. After confirming that my info was correct, I clicked the PRINT button (near Ref. No.).
all good to go, ready to submit my NBI E-Clearance application
4. After I clicked PRINT, I was redirected to this NBI Clearance QR Code Printout page. I printed it out as instructed. I also made an appointment / booking thru text, but actually it's not necessary. You may skip the booking request part.

Honestly, Im impressed. I never thought we could have a system that's efficient. LOL
5. The next day, I went to NBI Main in UN station, Taft Avenue. I went there at around 2pm, an hour late to the actual booking I made. Haha But it didn't matter. At the entrance, I just flashed my printed QR code and the officers told me to go directly at the 4th floor.
6. I entered a small room on the 4th floor and I handed my printout to the officers. I also presented my passport for valid ID. Yes, that's the only NBI requirement I brought. Anyway, in 2 minutes, the courteous and jolly officers had my biometrics and photo taken. And that's it. Im done!
7. If only my surname is unique, I could get my NBI Clearance right away. Yes, on the same day. Unfortunately, Im a Reyes, one of the most common surnames in the Philippines. For someone like me who has this surname, I had to be back after 3 working days. Well, it's just fine specially I never really had to wake up early and endure the very long line.
8. After 3 working days, I went back to NBI main. In 1 minute, my NBI Clearance was ready. Unbelievable!
the easiest way I got my NBI Clearance
Yihaa, Im so delighted! I have never experienced getting my NBI Clearance this easy and fast. It's very convenient! One of the very few times Im happy that Im paying my taxes right. Charot!
* for the record, pwede ang slippers / sandals sa NBI. merong poster sa labas na bawal daw, pero di naman totoo. buti nalang kasi walang akong shoes! ^_^
