Getting NBI Clearance @Robinson's Galleria

Been asking friends and reading blogs on where to get NBI in the Philippines and heard from a good friend of mine that they have satellite branches in Robinson's mall. I prefer Robinson's Galleria since its near to our office.

I came in at 7:20AM and lined up in front of the mall entrance with more than 100 people. The line started to move at 9:00AM when they initially distributed the forms and the number. I got number 129 for coming at 7:20AM not bad huh! I'm guessing one factor why there are only few people today is because of the recent weather disturbance in the metro caused by Habagat. 

When the mall opens at 10:00AM, they let people in including all NBI applicants. We rushed to the ground floor east side of the mall where NBI Clearance Center Lingkod Pinoy is located.

First 100 applicants are allowed to enter the waiting room, the rest of us who already have numbers are asked to sit in the right portion of the stairs while applicants who does not have numbers yet seated on the left part.

Here's the steps by step thing that we followed in the processing area.


1st batch   (1 - 100)       10:00am - 12:30pm
2nd batch  (101-200)    12:30pm -  onwards

My number was called at 12:50pm. Finally, after more than 5 hours of queuing and no less than 20 minutes of the actual processing step 1 to step 4, I got my NBI clearance at 1:15pm. Yey! 



Overall, the processing was fluid it's the waiting time  that's hostile.

Some tips:
1. Bring two valid ID, any of the following
PRC ID, 
Driver’s license, 
NSO, 
company ID, 
Passport, 
postal ID, 
SSS, 
TIN
2. Bring your own pen. There are no pens in the NBI clearance center
3. Make sure to bring something to cheer you up while waiting. (e.g a book to read)
4. Bring food and water :)

I did the e-clearance online registration. Here's how I did it.

It's really inconvenient for us to apply for nbi clearance. I just got my clearance today and it had been so tiring. I'm honestly losing hope for the Philippines. W/ this kind of system, we will never progress
