Getting your NBI Renewed in 7 EASY STEPS [LEAK-FREE GUIDE ]



Getting your NBI Renewed in 7 EASY STEPS [LEAK-FREE GUIDE ]

Applicants can renew their NBI Clearances for the second or several times as part of the NBI Renewal process. Applicants who have previously been granted NBI Clearances have a previous history of receiving them.

Only applicants with NBI clearance are eligible for this process. This procedure is not available to first-time NBI Clearance applicants since they have nothing to renew (obviously).

The applicant must meet the following criteria in order to be allowed to go through the NBI Renewal Online process:

  • There is an old and expired NBI Clearance naissue from the year 2014 onwards
  • The NBI Clearance for the year 2014 was canceled but not reported.

It is only the word “EXPIRED” that differs between the two criteria, but the process of NBI Renewal is the same.

A person applying for an NBI Renewal should know his or her NBI Clearance ID number as one of the most important details.

Printed copies of the NBI clearance contain this number. A successful NBI Renewal application cannot be processed if the NBI Renewal applicant cannot locate or obtain his or her NBI ID Number.

A new NBI clearance is all that’s needed. Our tutorial will cover this in more detail.

Where To Apply NBI Renewal

Your city has all the NBI Clearance Branches that can process your renewal. To enter the gate and be supervised by the NBI Clearance Staff, make sure you have a confirmed NBI Online Appointment before you head to your nearest branch.

The app is divided into topics for your convenience. In order to make your reading more convenient, we have created a Table of Contents regarding NBI Renewal. Choosing the right link depends on your needs.

Step 1. NBI Renewal Website

Visiting the official NBI Clearance Online Website is the first step you should take, so type in the url into your web browser.

In order for applicants to obtain their NBI clearance, the NBI Online website has been developed to handle all their online application needs.

You might not have an NBI Online account if you are visiting the website for the first time. No need to worry, we will teach you how to use it later.

You will have an easier time registering if you already have an NBI Online Account.

We’ll first walk you through registering your NBI Online Account. The next step is to log into your NBI Online account if you already have it (Step 3. NBI Online Login).

Step 2. Registration For NBI Renewal

Please note that this step is only applicable to applicants who wish to renew their NBI clearance or have already obtained their NBI clearance in 2014.

If you need to renew your NBI account, you can follow the link, but you may have difficulty remembering your username and password.

You do not need to complete this tutorial if you already have an NBI Clearance Online Account that has NBI Online Login capabilities. To renew your NBI membership, click this link (NBI Online Login for Renewal).

In order to secure an NBI Online Appointment, all applicants wishing to renew their NBI must use the NBI Online website.

NBI Online Registration Form

This tutorial will teach you how to renew your NBI using the website.

In order to proceed, we must confirm that the applicant has their actual NBI clearance before moving forward with this step. The printout or hard copy of your NBI Clearance is the exact document you will need later for NBI Renewal Online.

There will be a separate tutorial for the NBI Clearance later on, so don’t worry if the printout is gone.

On the NBI Clearance Online website, locate the NBI Renewal Registration Form described in the tutorial. Your screen’s location depends on whether you are using a laptop or desktop and whether you are using a smartphone or tablet.

Please see the image below for an example of this NBI Renewal Registration Form.

On the NBI Online Registration form, there is a question that asks, “DO YOU HAVE A NBI CLEARANCE ISSUED FROM 2014 TO THE PRESENT?”? Check the box that says “YES”.

After that, fill out all of the necessary personal information. The following are some of them.

  • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Mobile Number
    • Birth Date
    • And most important of all, is your NBI ID Number

A printed or hard copy of your NBI Clearance will display your NBI ID Number.

Please see the image below:

NBI ID Number – Successfully Retrieve Data

You will receive a successful notification if your NBI ID Number is stored on the NBI Website (see image below).

The next step is for you to take.

NBI Renewal will display the following message if it cannot find your NBI ID Number.

Do not worry if you receive an error saying the system cannot find the NBI ID. In this case, the NBI Online Website database does not contain your NBI ID Number. The alternative method is available to us.

Creating an NBI Online account is the only thing you need to do. Register a new NBI account online by going to our tutorial.

Register for NBI Renewal

I’d like to take you back to our tutorial on NBI Renewal. Having received an email notifying you that your data had been successfully retrieved, the NBI Renewal registration form has been updated.

You will notice that your other personal information will be automatically filled in (auto-populated) on the NBI Online Registration form. To create a new password, simply enter your mobile number, email address, and your e-mail address.

You must fill out the required information and check the box that says “I am not a robot” and “I have read and accept these terms.”.

Just click the “SIGN UP” button after completing the above steps.

One-Time Passwords (OTPs) for NBI

Among other things, NBI OTP protects NBI Online Websites against spam by using a one-time password. By doing this, spammers will be prevented from creating fake NBI Clearance Online accounts.

NBI OTP is a six-digit number sent via text message to the mobile number you entered in the NBI Renewal form to verify your identity.

Once you click the “SIGN UP” button on your mobile phone, you will receive a text message that contains these six digit numbers (NBI OTP).

The NBI Clearance Online website appears with a small window asking for the NBI OTP. The NBI OTP must be entered in this window within 5 minutes.

You can view the images below to see how the NBI OTP window looks and the text message you receive.

Window for NBI One-Time Passwords (OTPs)

The “RE-SEND ONE-TIME PASSWORD (OTP)” button can be used in case you did not receive your NBI OTP.
If you want to do this, just wait five minutes.

NBI Online Account Created

Your NBI Online Account has been successfully created when you correctly type the six numbers in the OTP Text message.

Upon successful creation of your NBI Account, you will see a small notification window.

Next, you can sign in to your NBI account to renew your membership (NBI Online Login for Renewal).

If you have not used the NBI Renewal feature of the website, you can skip the following step. Visit NBI Online Login to renew your membership

Registration Of NEW NBI Clearance Online Account

This part of this tutorial is for the following NBI Renewal Applicants:

  • Applicants who have never had an NBI Clearance Online Account
  • If you no longer have your hardcopy or printed copy of your NBI clearance but wish to renew it.
  • Candidates who still have their NBI clearances but whose NBI ID Number was not found in the database (received an error message stating “The system cannot find the given NBI ID“).
  • Applicants who still have their NBI Clearance but were issued before 2014.

In this section of the tutorial, if you met the above requirements, you will be able to find information about how to renew your NBI. An NBI clearance can only be obtained this way.

You will need to register a NEW NBI ONLINE ACCOUNT even if you already have one. It has come to my attention that if this is your process, your NBI Online Application has been changed to a NEW APPLICATION rather than a renewal.

It is possible that you’re one of those NBI Renewal Applicant who’s no longer eligible for NBI Renewal I mentioned above. You need to create a new NBI Clearance Application.

The following steps will help you register your NBI Online Account if you are one of the applicants mentioned above.

You should visit the website of the NBI (as I mentioned earlier).

The NBI Online Registration Form has to be found and filled out.

You need to fill in all the required personal information and then tick the “I’m not a robot” checkbox after you’ve filled in the necessary information.

When the window asking for NBI OTP appears, click “Sign up.”.

Your NBI OTP will be sent via a message that contains six numbers. You will need to enter these six numbers on the NBI website.

A NBI Clearance Online Account will be created for you after that.

NBI Online Login For Renewal

Now that you have followed the steps discussed above, you can log into NBI Online using your email address and password.

Please enter your registered email address and your password only in the login fields at the top of the page.

To access the NBI Clearance website itself, click the sign in button.

The NBI Online Registration Form will automatically appear if you successfully log in to your NBI Renewal Account. It’s important to note that all of your personal information is automatically filled in on your NBI Clearance Registration form.

You can only apply online for NBI RENEWAL instead of NEW if that is your preferred method.

A registration of NO NBI Clearance Online Account application (see Registering a NEW NBI Clearance Online Account) requires you to fill out your personal information on the NBI Clearance registration form.

In this article, we will focus on NBI Renewal rather than the steps involved in filling out the personal information.

We have an article about NBI Clearance New that you might find helpful if you still want to know how it works. Below is a link.

How to apply NBI Clearance Online

In our last tutorial, we talked about NBI Renewals.

In order to begin scheduling your NBI Online Application after completing your NBI Online Login, click the “APPLY FOR CLEARANCE” button after completing the NBI Online Login.

Using the “EDIT INFORMATION” button, you can still make changes to your personal information.

Step 3. NBI Renewal Requirements

Clicking the “APPLY FOR CLEARANCE” button will display a small window. The NBI Clearance Requirements are listed here for you to choose from.

In order to make everyone’s knowledge complete, the following IDs can be used in place of NBI Clearance Requirements:

  • Expired NBI Clearance
  • GSIS ID (ID)
  • Philippine Passport
  • Philhealth ID
  • Voter’s ID or Certificate of Registration
  • TIN ID
  • PRC License
  • Driver’s License
  • Pag-IBIG ID
  • NSO / PSA Authenticated Birth Certificate
  • Postal ID
  • Police Clearance Issued by the Police Station within the jurisdiction of the application’s residence
  • Certification from Local Civil Registrar
  • Certification from Malacanang for Indigenous Groups, Tribal membership and foundling
  • Solo Parent ID
  • Seaman’s Book
  • Senior Citizen ID
  • Security License ID issued by PNP for Security Guards

Check out this tutorial to learn more about NBI Clearance Renewal Requirements.

Your selected Valid ID number must also be provided. Your screen displays a small window with a second blank space. You can see this in the second blank space.

There is no difference between NBI Clearance Requirements for Renewal and NBI Clearance Requirements for New Application.

To verify your identity, NBI Renewal Applicants should present two (2) valid identification cards to the NBI Staff.

To continue, click “I AGREE”.

Step 4. Getting Your NBI Renewal Appointment Set Up

A small window will appear after you follow the above steps. As soon as you select a payment option, you will receive your Registration Code or NBI Reference Number.

To enter the NBI Clearance Processing Area, you will need the Reference number.

The NBI Renewal appointment can be scheduled by clicking the “CLOSE” button.

An overview of NBI branches’ opening and closing hours for the next weeks and months will appear on your screen.

However, you must first select the NBI branch. Simply click the down arrow to display or show the long list of NBI Branches and choose the NBI Branch where you would like to process your NBI renewal.

As an example, I will choose UN Avenue’s NBI Clearance Center Main Branch.

Upon June 30, 2020, you will see a blue box that says “PM” and “7 slots”. There are only 7 slots available for NBI Clearance applicants on June 30, 2020 in the afternoon (PM) and they can be accommodated/catered for only 7 applicants.

In the case of no blue box on a selected day, it means that there is no slot available for that day. The availability date needs to be changed.

The schedule for June 30, 2020 and PM was chosen this time.

It is important to note that NBI Renewal Applicants without a confirmed NBI Online Appointment will not be accepted. Our recent article about NBI Walk-in Clearance already discussed this.

step 5. Fee for renewing NBI

On a desktop or laptop, you can see the summary of your NBI Renewal on the right side, while on a mobile phone, it will appear at the bottom.

NBI Clearance Fee is summarized in the summary. There is an e-payment fee of P25, which will increase the price to P130.00.

The NBI Clearance Fee amount listed on the summary is not the final amount.

NBI Renewal Payment Option

There are six (6) payment options available to you on the NBI Renewal Summary. The following are included:

  • Bank Over the Counter
  • Online Banking
  • Payment Center Outlets
  • Pay Center Mobile App
  • ECPay
  • 7-Eleven
  • GCash – If you want to use your own GCash in paying for your NBI Clearance, you may want to read this tutorial

By clicking on the box containing your payment option, you can choose any of the payment options available.

Due to their many branches spread across the Philippines, Bayad Center Outlets and 7-Eleven are recommended.


Once you click PROCEED TO PAYMENT here are the next steps:

  1. A PAYMENT PAGE will open with your REFERENCE NUMBER.
  2. Go to the nearest PAYMENT CENTER or LBC and pay using your REFERENCE NUMBER.

There is also a convenience fee of P15 to be added. Depending on the Payment Option you select, the convenience fee may vary.

The total amount of your NBI Clearance Fee is now P130 + P25 + P15 = P170.00.

You can proceed to payment by clicking the “Proceed to Payment” button.

The NBI Reference Number and NBI Clearance amount will appear again in a small window.

It says it costs only P155, but you may be confused. But, as I mentioned earlier, there is still a P15 additional fee that must be paid directly to Bayad Center or 7-Eleven.

Take a screenshot or write down your NBI Reference number so you don’t forget it. Once you have gone to your NBI branch, your NBI Reference Number will serve as both your gate pass and payment method for your NBI Clearance fee.

Click the “Accept” button. The NBI Clearance Online Website is where you do your work when you reach this point in the tutorial. In this step, you will proceed to the next step after closing the NBI Renewal website. Fee for renewing the NBI.

Step 6. NBI Renewal Fee Payment

In Step 5 (NBI Renewal Payment Option), you will select a Payment Option to pay your NBI Clearance Fee.

There are several different payment options, so we won’t explain them all in detail. The consensus is on two things, however. Listed below are the fees and reference numbers for the NBI.

Simply go to the location of your choice (for instance Bayad Center or 7-Eleven). In order for the NBI Reference number to be encoded, it must be provided to the Cashier. His or her computer will display your name and other details.

Renewal fees of P170 must be paid. As each Payment Center imposes a different “Convenience Fee”, your payment may be cheaper or more expensive than what I have mentioned (P175).

You should keep the receipt as proof that the NBI Online Fee has already been paid.

Do you offer another payment option for the NBI Clearance Fee? The Bayad Center or 7-Eleven are much closer to where I am located than Bank (Over the Counter).

Answer: NO. Depending on your payment option, your NBI Reference Number will be unique. In contrast to the NBI Reference Numbers issued and generated for over-the-counter purchases at the bank, the NBI Reference Numbers issued and generated for 7-Eleven are different.

Since NBI Reference Numbers (Over the Counter) are exclusive to banks, 7-Eleven or Bayad Center cannot retrieve your NBI Clearance Reference number.

It would be helpful if we were clear about that. Feel free to leave a comment if you still have questions.

Step 7. Processing Of NBI Renewal

This is the final process of applying an NBI Clearance. This is the step where you can find and process the document you submitted to NBI Online.

If you remember, you scheduled an appointment with the NBI Branch, right? All you have to do is go on the day of your NBI Online appointment. Arrive at the time of your choice (be it morning or afternoon). Your NBI Online Appointment doesn’t have a specific time but you should still be following in the morning or afternoon schedule.

Just a reminder, just follow the rules of proper dress code. Make sure you wear shoes and trousers (for men) because there are other NBI Branches that are strictly in dress codes.

What should I expect when I get to the NBI Clearance Branch?

The following are the activities that will take place while you are processing your NBI Clearance.

Photo Capture

At this point, you just need to take the latest photo. The only thing you can do is stand still and stare into the camera. On your NBI clearance, you will see the photo taken.


A biometric scan is performed by the NBI Online Branch scanner using your finger prints. We will assist you with this step if you need assistance, so you don’t need to worry.

The NBI Clearance Staff will scan your fingers once you relax your fingers.

Data Verification

Upon completion of the NBI Online Application Form, photo capture, biometrics, and personal information are verified by NBI Clearance Staff. If they are correct, the NBI Clearance Staff will ask you.

In addition, you may correct any inaccurate or insufficient personal information. In addition, you can edit the fields you can’t edit such as your maiden name for married women and your first name, middle name, last name.

Changing your civil status is also possible here.

The NBI Clearance staff will submit your NBI Clearance for additional verification once you have verified that all information on it is accurate.

HIT Or No Hit

You will be listed among people who have already applied for NBI clearance, people with pending cases, criminal records, and people with outstanding warrants of arrest after you complete Data Verification.

NBI Renewal Online Releasing

You will have to wait 10 working days before you can release your NBI clearance if you have a namesake. If you are renewing or applying for a new NBI clearance, you must return on the specified date specified by the NBI Clearance Staff.

NBI Clearance will be released immediately if you don’t have a namesake. If there are many applicants waiting, you have to go to the NBI Online Releasing Area and wait 15 to 45 minutes.

It’s time to conclude our tutorial on how to renew your NBI.

Conclusion On NBI Renewal

I think the NBI Renewal process is easier than the New Application because they will already extract your personal information from their database, so you don’t have to write it in the NBI Online Application Form.

The Renewal Website will be able to retrieve your NBI ID Number if you follow the NBI Renewal process, which we suggest you follow by typing in your NBI ID Number.

In some cases, your NBI ID Number can’t be retrieved by the NBI Renewal website if you have typed it in. This may be due to reasons such as your NBI ID Number not being available in their database. It is now just a matter of registering a new account with NBI Clearance Online.

As confirmed by the NBI, quick renewals of NBI clearances have already been discontinued. There are unknown reasons as to why you cannot use this convenient NBI Application Process.

In this post, I am providing readers with the opportunity to ask questions or leave comments about our NBI Renewal tutorial.
