NBI Clearance Renewal Card

Image001

The image you see above is a biometric National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Clearance Renewal Card. This card costs P120.00. The card can be printed the same time the applicant requests it, provided, of course that there is no technical problems. (More after the jump…)

To get this card, I understand that one must first request for a clearance, after the paper clearance form has been released he/she can request this card. The card operator would take your photo and your thumb print. I understand that the photo and thumb prints are stored on the microchip on the left of the card.

The card will eliminate delays in getting a clearance especially those with criminal namesakes. Without this card individuals with namesakes will have to wait from 5 to 10 business days to verify the applicants identity.

Currently, the NBI does not consider the renewal card as a national id.

According the NBI the card would soon be able to be used for self-service clearance renewal kiosks. It would work similar to ATM or cash machines.
