I just finished with my Police Clearance application and I wanted to share my experience. I’ll be using my Police Clearance as a supporting document for my DFA passport application.
It was morning of June 10, 2016 when I got my Police Clearance. And even before that, I also got my Barangay Clearance. (See Here for the Guide )
Same day, just an hour in between. Two clearances, just like that!
You know, Police Clearance Certificate, Police Data Card as well as the Barangay Clearance are considered as supporting documents for proof of identity and validation of personal information on government ID’s that you present for any applications, legal and financial transaction. I needed these two clearances to apply for my DFA Passport since I don’t have any other options. I needed to get my two supporting documents on the same day since it’s Friday and I don’t have more available time. I don’t have time for the long lines of NBI Clearance and the long wait needed to have my Postal ID and Voter’s ID – which by the way has been 5 years since I applied and I don’t have my card yet.
Before I started processing my clearances I Googled for the Police Clearance application requirements as a guide. I processed my Police clearance in Quezon City Hall at 11am and finished by 12nn. If I wasn’t taking any pictures, the whole process may have only taken at most 40 minutes.
By the way, processing Police Clearance is very easy. In Quezon City Hall’s building for Police Clearance, stations for each process are labeled. There are also reminders posted on tarpaulins which helped a lot.
