Residents in South Cotabato and nearby provinces need not wait for a month or two to be issued a National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) clearance.
NBI – 12 Regional Director Atty. Angelito Magno announced today that the online clearance issuance of the regional office in Koronadal City is back in operation.
“This means that those who apply for NBI clearance can receive their document immediately,” Magno said.
He assured applicants that NBI 12 can now issue clearance within ten minutes or less except in cases when they have “hits” or “records.”
NBI-12’s office is located at the second floor of the South Cotabato Gymnasium and Cultural Center along Alunan Avenue, Koronadal City.
In July, Mega Data Corp. (MDC), the company that ran the clearance processing of NBI, pulled out its facilities including the online issuance system after its contract with NBI expired on June 30.
This led NBI to return to the manual processing of clearance applications that further resulted in long queues in NBI offices and weeks to receive their documents. (PIA 12)
