Remember the times when applying for or renewing a National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) clearance for employment or for any other purpose was torture both physically and mentally?
It’s absolutely gone now as for many years, the NBI has been a proponent in improving the ease of doing transactions for Filipinos.
From the application of their NBI clearance to online registration, online scheduling of appointments to opening different payment options for citizens, NBI has expanded its online services allowing citizens to also renew and pay their NBI clearance without having to leave the comforts of their homes.
This means no more personal appearances, no more longer queues as the NBI makes its services more convenient and hassle-free for Filipinos by simply accessing the NBI Website at https://clearance.NBI.gov.ph. In addition, it also gives citizens the option to have their clearances picked-up from the NBI office or they can request for a door-to-door delivery service in 3 to 7 business days in Metro Manila and Luzon and 7 to 10 business days in Visayas and Mindanao.
The NBI Clearance Online Renewal System with Delivery Service was launched this morning, June 17, 2021 at the NBI VTECH Tower in Quezon City. Present during the launch were NBI officials led by NBI Officer in Charge Director Eric Distor, NBI Deputy Director for Information and Communications Technology Service (ICTS) Jose Justo Yap, Deputy Director Ferdinand Lavin, Forensic Investigation Services, Marlou Baltazar, chief of the ICT Division, and Nicanor Suarez, chief of the Information Division.
