Online Application for NBI Clearance Now Available

Wazzup Pilipinas!

To those planning to get an NBI clearance today,  instead of battling it out patiently in a depressing queue, you might just want to wait a couple more days.

With the recent news about the terrible service that a lot of individuals had to endure when getting their NBI clearance, the government has finally come to its senses by offering a more convenient form of getting the much needed document especially during job application. The very slow processing resulting in the long queue of applicants were terribly disappointing. Many had to fall in line at the National Bureau of Investigation offices even earlier than 2 am just to be among the first people in line.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced in a press release dated January 23, 2014 that applicants for the NBI Clearance can now apply and fill out the complete form online.

According to the DOJ’s press release, NBI Clearance applicants can now apply and fill out the complete form at or starting Friday, January 24, 2014. After the online registration, applicants may proceed directly to any of the 55 sites nationwide for payment and biometric enrollment for the release of the clearance.

“With the implementation of the new NBI system, we shall continue to roll-out and implement solutions to progressively eliminate queues and simplify processes,” says Secretary of Justice Leila M. De Lima. “online application is the logical next step after the switch.”

In other countries, transactions with government agencies are done through online queuing and processes. The intentions of which are to have transparency, eliminate corruption, and maintain orderliness and speed. Try the US Embassy in Manila: visa application is organized. Face-to-face with the consul is video and audio recorded. Applicants are advised via express mail and e-mails for physical appearance in the embassy.

This service was probably offered several months, or even years, ago with a systems partner but it is only now that the government is implementing this convenience. We will now have so many happy customers because in just around 10 minutes, they can now go for their biometrics and scheduling.

The only problem I may be seeing here is the accessibility of the online site. With the influx of applicants now trying to access the web site to get their NBI Clearance, then this may result to the site going or slowing down due to too much traffic.

But this is definitely a big improvement from the traditional manual process.
