MANILA, Philippines – After repeated criticism on long queues and fixers in the application process, the Department of Justice (DOJ) launches an online system for clearance application at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).
Under this new system, applicants will first file for clearance application online, then they will proceed to any of the NBI sites for payment and biometric enrollment.
“With the implementation of the new NBI system, we shall continue to roll out and implement solutions to progressively eliminate long queue and simplify processes,” Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said.
The project is under the National Justice Information System (NJIS), which aims to link institutions under the justice sector.
The new NBI clearance system, tagged by DOJ as a substantial upgrade, will now be run by the justice department.
“Online application is the logical next step after the switch,” she said.
Newly-appointed NBI Chief Virgilio Mendez added that a renewal module will also be implemented as a next step.
“We expect significant progress in the coming weeks with the delivery of additional equipment and increase in personnel,” he said.
