When applying for an NBI Clearance, it is imperative to present two valid identification documents (IDs) bearing your complete name, address, age, and physical appearance.
Outdated photos on the ID must be updated to avoid complications. Similar ID requirements apply for other transactions like opening a bank account or boarding a plane. Failure to provide a valid ID at the NBI Clearance branch will result in denial of your application, as it is a mandatory requirement. The list of accepted IDs must be strictly adhered to, ensuring they are not expired or reproduced.
The following are acceptable forms of identification:
- PRC Card
- PhilSys ID or Philippine National ID
- Birth Certificate Authenticated by PSA
- UMID or SSS ID
- Voter’s ID or Certificate of Registration
