Starting April 1, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) will no longer entertain walk-ins as the new clearance systems will be fully online to cater Filipinos.
In a statement posted at PIA, NBI spokesperson Nick Suarez said the new procedure is intended to help applicants get their clearances fast and in a most convenient way.
Almost all of us are using the Internet, we better make use of them in transacting business with the NBI,” Suarez said.
He added that they will no longer entertain walk-ins as it implements a fully online registration and appointment system for the NBI clearance nationwide.
How to apply for NBI clearance online
To apply online, applicants may accomplish the application form at www.doj.gov.ph/nbi, www. nbi.gov.ph, and clearance.nbi.gov.ph.
After registering online, applicants may proceed to any of the 55 NBI sites nationwide for the payment and biometric enrollment before their clearance is released.
"They can only go to the NBI clearance sites on the scheduled date they have chosen when they filled up their forms online," Suarez said.
"The new clearance system provides a more reliable platform for the efficient processing of applicants' information. With the improved search engine and query database, the accurate releasing of clearances will be faster," said Justice Secretary Leila de Lima in February [Rappler]
