NBI clearance in Philippines

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) saw its inception on November 13, 1936 upon approval of Commonwealth Act No. 181 by the legislature. It was the the brainchild of the late President Manuel L. Quezon and Jose Yulo, then Secretary of Justice. Tasked with organizing a Division of Investigation or DI patterned after the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation were Thomas Dugan, a veteran American police captain from the New York Police Department and Flaviano C. Guerrero, the only Filipino member of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation. Last night I frantically search on how and where to get NBI clearance in Manila . Here’s my experience and some tips on getting NBI Clearance in Robinsons Galleria: 1. Went to queue at 6AM and the line was already long. Got number 239 by 7:30AM. The first 200 applicants were allowed to enter the mall to start their processing and the rest of the batches were asked to come back by: 2nd batch (201-270)- 10AM 3rd batch (271-399)- 10AM 4th batch (400-500) – 12NN 2. By 10AM the mall opens. All applicants must proceed to the Lower Ground Level of Robinson’s Galleria, fronting Netopia and Luxe Nail Salon. A security guard will allow 2nd batch applicants to sit in a waiting room and the 3rd batch to a different sitting area (stairs). 4th batch is asked to come back by 12NN. 3. 2nd batch applicants will be seated according to their numbers and a corresponding application form will be given to them (by the security guard once everyone is seated and arranged). Fill out the application form and note the following: – read the form carefully especially for married women. Fill out SURNAME as your maiden name and write your married name on the blank after HUSBAND’S SURNAME. – your mother’s name is asked, write your mother’s maiden name – prepare your valid ID (any of the following): * PRC ID, Driver’s license, NSO, company ID, Passport, postal ID, SSS, TIN *it’s possible that they will ask for a second ID when you present cedula, school ID, other company ID *the old NBI clearance is not deemed valid and will not be accepted Tips: – bring your own pen, no pens provided on the waiting room – bring a book to keep you occupied (companions are not allowed inside the waiting room) – bring water and light snack (especially if you’re 2nd batch) 4. The guard will call you by batches to queue in the processing area. There are 4 steps and it’ll be a breeze: Step 1. Payment – prepare your application form, ID and P115 (for travel abroad, local employment), P165 (for change of name,status,address,etc) and P465 (for Validation of ACR, etc) Step 2. Encoding- present your application form and the receipt. Make sure you look at the monitor as your information is filled out. Step 3. Biometrics- finger printing and photo Step 4. Releasing- if you’re lucky you will just wait few minutes and you’ll have your clearance but if not, they will ask you to come back another day. Mine was released in 10 mins or so. Basically the process is a breeze, it must have been the long queuing and waiting for the mall to open that took so much of the time.
