According to the National Bureau of Investigation, applicants who possess NBI clearances issued from 2014 onwards may renew their NBI clearance without accomplishing a new NBI fingerprint card form No. 5 provided that no changes have been made to their personal data.

To renew NBI clearances, applicants must mail the following:

  • Two 2 x 2 photos
  • PHP 200 processing fee

Addressed to:

Chief, Information and Communication

Applicants may also send their NBI clearance renewal application through an authorized representative in the Philippines. A letter of authorization is required. Applications coming from abroad are processed at the Mailed Clearance Section of NBI, located on the 3rd floor of the NBI Clearance Building, UN Avenue, Manila. Authorized representatives are advised to proceed to this address to submit documents. Please ensure they bring their authorization letter or Special Power of Attorney and a valid ID.

Processing of applications will take a maximum of five (5) days upon receipt of documents. Further queries and clarifications may be directed to the NBI at 5238231 loc. 5465.
