Google Advertisements

Before I go straight to discussing important notes and tips to guide you with your NBI clearance from application, form, renewal, fees and price (how much is the document) and the application requirements, let me first enlighten you with some face via a question and answer type of information (FAQ’s). I also have some common questions answered below so be sure to read along. It might help you a thing or two with the tips I’ve got here.

How long is an NBI Clearance valid (validity period)? – The validity of your NBI Clearance is good for one year. Afterwards, you may opt in for a renewal in authorized kiosks and branches of the said government document used primarily for employment and travel abroad. Compared to a police clearance, it has longer validity period. This other security document is valid for only 6 months.

How long will it take  (processing) or when can you get/pickup the NBI Clearance?

Your NBI Clearance will be released the same day you apply for in, UNLESS there is a “hit”! You will find out when you can claim your NBI Clearance on Step 5 – Data Entry. They will place a mark at the back of your receipt, and it’s either without hit (you proceed to releasing area) or with hit.

What is a “hit”?

If in case you got a “hit” upon checking it, you’ve got locked up in either situation. You either probably share the same name with somebody else who’s got a derogatory record or you’ve been filed a case before. You will have to come back after a week to either claim your NBI Clearance or be interviewed in this case. Refer to the mark at the back of your receipt and take note of the date you have to come back to the NBI Clearance Center. It is listed there.

For those live in Caloocan, you can go to Victory Central Mall to get or apply for your NBI Clearance. The clearance center is located at the 5th floor of Victory Central Mall, Old Victory Compound, Rizal Avenue, Monumento, Caloocan City.

    Hi! I was hit last year and told to be back after 15 working days but I lost my reciept..What shall I do? How can I get my clearance?

    • Philippines Review says:


      If you lost your receipt, try to file for or get an affidavit of loss in the nearest city hall and have it notarized in a public attorney’s office. Better yet, go to the nearest NBI clearance claim center. Ang alam ko po mayroon nyan sa mismong mga City Hall na. Kung wala, try nyo po sa malls. Doon na po magtanong ng tamang gagawin or try to visit the NBI official website and look for their call center po. Call them and ask what’s best in your case of lost claim receipt.
