For Filipinos looking for a job, an NBI clearance is almost always required. This is actually one of the most dreaded steps in an application process as getting an NBI clearance is associated with long queues. Consistent with the government’s effort to make things doable online, applying for an NBI clearance is also now easier as it can be done online.
But take note that not all steps are done away with. What can be done online is the registration which already takes away a chunk of the whole process. If you register online, you then proceed to the NBI sites only to pay and to do the biometric enrolment.
Per the announcement of the Department of Justice, applicants for NBI clearance can now use the online application facility. It was actually available since January 24. Applicants can go to www.doj.gov.ph/nbi or www.nbi.gov.ph to fill out the forms.
