NBI E-Clearance | the best online service ever

dahil hobby ko lang lumipat ng company, halos taon-taon yata ay kumukha ako ng NBI clearance. it was really a nightmare. ayoko gumising ng maaga, ayoko sayangin ang oras ko sa pagpila, at ayokong masungitan ng mga governement officials.
..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! ^_^

Matet Garcia-Reyes said...

i can relate with the "reyes" thingy! haha! dati nung dalaga ako (Garcia ako before) sabi ko I'll marry someone with a unique surname para hindi mahirapan kumuha ng docs like NBI,etc. hala! Reyes ang naging hubby ko, mas dumami kapangalan ko!

Calvin said...

uy ok 'to pero hassle pa rin yung sa may kaparehong pangalan. yun yung na-solve ng NBI clearance ID para di na kelangan bumalik pero inabolish nila. hayyy. computerized nga di naman nila macheck yung identity kaagad, anong use pag fill up ng info online?

actually dati mabilis din eh, kung andyan yung mga kiosk sa mall. pero tinanggal nila ang karamihan kaya ayun pahirapan ulit.

pero ok pa rin ito. sana lang wala nang pabalik balik.

Batangala said...

nice and informative blog. curious lang ako: what the difference between the for local employment and the one for abroad. the last time i got an nbi clearance was 6 years ago when i applied for an international scholarship. i never bothered asking the nbi what's the difference, ha ha ha

Chyng said...

@marie,
1 ID will do, pramis! =)

@batangala,
mahirap ang tanong mo. next question pls..

Rizalenio said...

Ayos. Finally. Galeng!!!! :)

May kapangalan din ako, may kaso pa. Ouch. Usually, tumatagal ng 2 weeks bago ko mabalikan. Super hassle. Kaya kapag nagkaanak ako, unique kung unique, super unique ang ipapangalan ko. Haha.

Jem said...

life wonders said...

Justin said...

Thanks for sharing the positive experience. Really helpful.

Did you have to line up when you went back (due to having a common surname) or did you just go straight to the room?

If you have a unique name and no cases, can you actually get the clearance the first time you go to NBI?

Chyng said...

^ hi justin!
- no. walang pila when I claimed my nbi clearance.
- yes, if you have unique name, you can get it on the same day

Garski said...

Hi chyng, pwede ba mag park dun sa NBI? Or nearest parking slot nila if alam nyo rin po .

Chyng said...

hhmm parang wala parking kung sa NBI mismo. pero sa mga resto / fast food sa harap at tabi, pwede magpark.

anonymous, itext mo lang yung nbi number na binigay for inquiries. they'll ask for your reference number then countercheck then text you if it's ready for validation.

Anonymous said...

anytime po ba pwede magbayad thru gcash and magfill-out? or during office hours lang? TIA

Chyng said...

^ i did it during office hours para for sure makita nila yung transaction. :)

Oreo said...

Guys, try the new nbi e-clearance! its fast and convenient. Here is my experience: http://oreoisgood.blogspot.com/2012/08/how-to-get-nbi-clearance-fast-and.html

BTW, good thing you were able to slip through without getting noticed, but most days, the guards are strict on clothing. So guys, if you dont want delays its just a mere 'follow the rules' thing.

Joyce decena said...

Hi! Thank you for this!

Question: Im in the "Booking Process" na, texted the number stated in the site, pero di nagrereply yung sa booking. Mabilis lang ba sila magreply?

Chyng said...

^ hi
no need for that booking confirmation. as long as you have that QR code printed, good to process na ang nbi mo.

marxtermind said...

Rochkirstin Santos said...

Thanks for posting these instructions. They have helped me get into NBI's online clearance system. However I found their processing not efficient enough. If you can spare some time, you can read about it at my blog and share your thoughts. http://rochkirstin.com/how-the-philippine-nbi-e-clearance-system-can-be-improved/
