I chose the 7-Eleven payment option. There is a kiosk there that accepts various bill payments, and one of those is NBI clearance. You will need to enter the NBI application reference number and the exact amount to pay which is (Php 155.00) It will automatically add their extra service fee of Php 15.00. Then proceed to the cashier for payment. 

Make sure to keep the receipt as you will be presenting it in the NBI branch as proof that you have a confirmed schedule and you already paid for it.

Note: Never go to the NBI processing office without having an appointment. They will not entertain any walk-in applicants.

  • Go to the nearest NBI Processing center only on your scheduled slot.
  • The first queue will be for document assessment. You need to show the officer your two valid IDs, schedule confirmation, and proof of payment. Don’t ever forget one of these requirements as they are very strict with this matter. They will not let you in if the documents are not complete.
  • The next queue will be for biometrics and photo taking.
  • The NBI clearance officer will show you all the information you initially filled up, make sure to check all the information and all are correct before confirming,
  • Once done with the above process, depends on the branch, you can have your clearance on the same day. But in my case, I waited for another 07 working days to collect it.
