For many years, the National Bureau of Investigation (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 by keeping them safe without leaving their homes.

No more personal appearances, no more longer queues, making 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 the 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 announcement and official launching of the NBI Online Clearance Renewal with Delivery Service Nationwide that will make processing efficient and seamless was held on Thursday, June 15, 2021, at the new NBI building in Quezon City.

“Today we are proud to announce the fruits of our efforts with the continuous digitalization of data. Through our new online portal more Filipinos will find it easier to process their applications easier when they renew their NBI clearance online instead of going out face-to-face,” said NBI Deputy Director Ferdinand Lavin during the formal presentation and official launch with the media.

“Our goal is to provide a better, a more efficient and safer way for Filipinos to renew their NBI Clearance without having to leave their homes. NBI has always been committed in the service of the Filipinos and we will have more public service initiatives that will make the lives of our fellow countrymen easier and more convenient ” says NBI OIC Director Eric B. Distor.

“In support of the agenda set forth by our current NBI officer-in-charge Director Eric B. Distor, we have doubled our efforts to make people’s lives easier by making NBI clearance renewal accessible online. Not only is it convenient but definitely a safer way to protect our citizens by allowing them to stay right at the comfort of their homes ” says NBI Deputy Director Yap.

NBI is clearly embracing technology through the implementation of online processing of renewal via pick-up by individual, pick-up by courier (Lalamove or Grab), and delivery to accommodate and provide applicants their necessary document without having to leave their homes or easily pick-up their clearance on a scheduled date.

“Security system is continuously monitored and watched by our data officer. This is part of our obligation under Data Privacy Act to be able to provide data that are secured and safe,” said Deputy Dir. Lavin when asked about the security measures of the online renewal system.
