Multi Purpose NBI Clearance

Latest News: The National Bureau of Investigation beginning October 2, 2017 will no longer require people applying for an NBI clearance to specify the purpose of his or her application.

Through a memorandum dated September 7, 2017 NBI Director Dante Gierran said the bureau has changed the format of its NBI clearance form to now bear the phrase “Issued for whatever legal purpose,” instead of a specific purpose such as local or overseas employment and travel abroad.

The NBI will start issuing a new multi-purpose clearance, priced at P115, following a directive from Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II.

“All existing NBI clearance forms shall be utilized and consumed for this purpose using the NBI clearance printing program to be deployed by the ICTD [Information and Communications Technology Division],” Gierran said.

Gierran also gave all NBI clearance processing centers nationwide until September 18 to post an announcement in “conspicuous places” of their respective offices about the implementation of the multi-purpose clearance. – Source: GMA News
