How To Get NBI Clearance Appointment

How to Get NBI Clearance Appointment

Starting December 27, 2016, NBI strictly implemented the "No Appointment, No Entry" arrangement for those applying for NBI Clearance. It means that somebody needs to set an appointment first before he/she can get an NBI Clearance.

The good news is, anyone can get an appointment without having to go to the NBI Clearance center before his/her preferred application or pick-up date. We had done this and so, I will share with you how.

NBI Clearance Appointment

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to set an NBI clearance appointment online.

Step 1 - Go to the official NBI Clearance website

Visit https://clearance.nbi.gov.ph/ and set up an account or sign in to your existing one. Enter your email address and password to sign in. 

To know how to create an account, check How to Create an NBI Clearance Online Account post.

Step 2 - Review your personal information

Once signed in, take the time to review your personal information on the APPLICANT INFORMATION section for possible changes or before you apply for NBI Clearance. 

To add or change some data, click the EDIT INFORMATION button located on the upper right-hand corner of the page.

Click the SAVE INFORMATION button for every change made.

Step 3 - Set up your appointment schedule

If everything is fine, start to set your appointment schedule by clicking the APPLY FOR CLEARANCE button still located on the upper right corner of the screen.

You will then be asked what ID you are going to present during your appointment. Enter the type of ID you have. Make sure to bring the document for verification. You may use the following documents and/or IDs:

  • Voter’s ID
  • SSS ID
  • PRC License
  • Passport
  • Postal ID
  • Driver’s License
  • School ID
  • Alien Certificate of Registration
  • Philhealth Card
  • TIN Card
  • NSO/PSA Authenticated Birth Certificate
  • Senior Citizen Card
  • Copy of Previous NBI Clearance

Step 4 - Confirm your ID

Hit I ''AGREE" button so as to confirm the type of ID to present, as well as, to certify that all information is true and correct.

Step 5 - Finalize the date and location

Now, set a specific date, time, and place of your appointment. Select the NBI Clearance Center nearest you. You may type the location for you to easily find the right branch.

Also, select if it’s AM or PM. Make sure you are available on the scheduled date and time of appointment as NBI has the right to forfeit fees collected if the applicant fails to appear on the chosen schedule.

Step 6 - Decide how to pay

After setting the schedule, proceed for payment by choosing from the available payment options. Your option determines the total fee of your transaction which includes the NBI Clearance charge and the e-payment service.

You may pay thru Bank Over the Counter, Online Bank, Bayad Center, MultiPay, ECPay, and 7-Eleven. Hover your mouse to any of the payment options to see the specific payment centers.

Step 7 - Finalize your payment options

Just hit the “Proceed to Payment” button when shown of the transactions summary.

Take note of the REFERENCE NUMBER provided to you which will serve as your code in paying the requested document and as your gate pass when entering the NBI Clearance Center.

Step 8 - Proceed to payment centers

Lastly, pay the NBI Clearance through your selected payment option. Show the reference number so the payment will be tagged to your applied document.

And that was how we did it! It’s time for you to wait for your appointment date. Remember to bring at least two (2) valid IDs just in case they will need more than one, your reference number and the proof of payment.

Best of luck with your appointment for NBI Clearance! If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to post in the comments section below.

  1. Hi,

    Due to the pandemic, it was difficult to set an appointment with NBI because the schedules were always full, so we tried a couple of NBI centers.

    Unfortunately, it's my brother's appointment tomorrow and we forgot where we booked him the appointment (our options are: QC City Hall, Cubao, UN Avenue) and I was on the phone multiple times but nobody could give me the information we need despite of having the Reference No.

    The NBI Clearance website only shows the payment date and the appointment date. So frustrating.
