  1. Hi, some websites say that we need to use a different email when we renew our NBI, but your instructions say to use the original email and password that was used the first time registering when we renew. I just want to make sure that nothing has changed and your instructions are correct. Thanks in advance.

    1. You can’t “RENEW” an NBI clearance unless you have a previous record with them. Therefore, if you’re going to use a new email address and password, it’s technically a “NEW” application.

      1. Hi, I have an NBI that I need to renew soon. So I should use my original email/password, correct? Thanks again.

      2. Hi, I did what you suggested and used my original email/password when I tried to renew my NBI, but it didn’t work. Once I entered a new email address and password it worked fine and I was able to renew. You might want to update the instructions for this part of the renewal. Thanks again.

  2. Hi, I am based overseas so I’m giving my brother the authority to claim my clearance. I already set an appointment and paid for it online. My most recent one was from Jan 2019, so do I still need to send the 2×2 photos and orig nbi clearance to my representative?

  3. Unfortunately, the NBI quick renewal is always “TEMPORARILY NOT AVAILABLE” up to this date. It’s very inconvenient to file a leave, queue a long line then will tagged HIT and go back again to get the clearance 🙁 Would you know, if someone on my behalf can process my renewal and I will just provide SPA on the date of appointment and Pick up? Thank you

  4. based on your article Online renewal system is only applicable to NBI clearances issued from 2014 to 2018. can I still for renewal of my NBi clearance even if it will expire on 2019.

    1. Yes, you can. I’ve edited the part you’re pertaining to and replaced 2018 with “present”.

  5. Good day! Di na po ba kailangan ng Special Power of Attorney kapag authorized person ang maglalakad ng NBI renewal ko? Authorization letter lang po ba?


    1. Unfortunately, your NBI clearance is already considered invalid since it was released prior to 2014. You have to go through the same process for new applicants.

  6. Sir How can I renew my NBI clearance since I’m here overseas? Your quick renewal feature seems not working? Salamat po and more power to your service

  7. Hi po,

    Meron po akong old nbi na issued noong January 4, 2018 at valid po siya until January 4, 2019. Gusto ko po sana siya irenew kaso lumalabas po invalid information? Kelangan ko po ba kumuha ule ng new nbi clearance?

    1. Please make sure that you have typed in the right information. Call the NBI Clearance HelpDesk if the problem persists.

  8. I tried to renew my nbi and once I reach the page for selecting payment method, I keep on getting an error message “the purpose Id field is required” but everything has been filled up. Is there any option for easier and faster way to renew my nbi?
