  1. Hi. What should be done if I lost my expired nbi clearance? I tried to apply for renewal online but cant go through since its been asking for nbi# found in the old nbi clearance. Should I apply for a new one? Thank u.

  2. Hi! Is it possible to go to another NBI Branch other than the one that’s been initially chosen during the enrollment? Thanks

  3. hi i made an appointment by may 18,because thats one of those which has available slots, but i want to go earlier, like may 17, because i have errands to attend to by May 18. is it ok to go there earlier? will it matter?

  4. Is it possible I can have it processed in the morning even though the schedule is in the afternoon?
    please reply, thank you….

  5. @Karen: I think you need to do the process all over again if you missed the appointment. Or you can call NBI hotline near your area for that inquiry.

  6. Hi,

    I miss my appointment, but wala silang reschedule. If you apply for another appointment you have to pay it again online. Does anyone try mgpareschedule?

    Please help.

  7. @Maki: Hi Maki. Try to go back to your account and check your status. If it requires you to make an appointment again, then do as per instructions in the website.

    If still doesn’t work, try to do do the same process all over again in NBI’s official website.

  8. I am having trouble applying for nbi clearance. I forgot my nbi id #. I lost my previos form too. And when i am trying to create a new says there that the email address i type in is already taken (of course, its taken by me.). Is there anyway on how can i retrieve my id #. Thanks

  9. Going to NBI branches is a lot easier than this stupid online system. Gets you too much hassle. NBI processing offline has improved. Better than have yourself stuck up in their website.

  10. eh indi naman taga NBI ang may ari ng blog nato. The owner of this blog is just sharing you tips on how to apply your clearance through its website. He has no control about your transactions and your accounts.

  11. @Noel @Sha @Ivon @Rez: Go to and try contacting the website’s admin through its contact page. The contact button is at the bottom of the page, the blue rectangle button.

    There you will be required to enter your name, e-mail, Mobile No, subject of your concern, and your message/concern. I believe they will respond to you accordingly through your email or mobile number.

  12. do you have an idea why I can’t make it to the scheduling process? There seems to be a glitch in the payment section. Please help Nonoy.

  13. @Sha:

    Hi Sha. There should be a rescheduling of your appointment since you’ve already paid. Just show them the receipt of your payment to the NBI office and they should prioritize you because you came in there earlier than those who’ve just got their application online.

  14. The admin doesn’t even care about the users’ concerns about their NBI clearanances. If you really care about our problems, you should respond to us.

  15. My appointment for the nbi clearance was on July 7, 2015 AM. But, it happened hat i wasn’t able to claim it that day because i had to collect other requirements for my other applications. As the confirmation says, i was able to pay the bill on July 7, 2015 P.M. It will take an hour and a half for me to reach there. It was already out of the business hours so i decided not to go to the nbi branch i picked. Now, is their a way i could re-schedule it by this week, or tomorrow July 9, 2015 (specifically)? Again i have paid it already. For clarification, I hope a reply will be followed-up to me. Thank you.

  16. just wanna ask . what if i was able to goon the appointment time and day i am scheduled?

    hoping for your response

    thank you.

  17. @Jenn: Try to click the clickable ‘forgot password?’ link, and from there enter the email address you used when you register. A new password or a ‘password recovery’ link will be sent to your email.

    If that doesn’t work, try registering again using another email address.
