STEPS | How to get a police clearance in Manila Police District (Updated 2017)

In 2015, I posted in my main blog a simplified list of steps on how to get a police clearance in Manila, particularly in Manila Police District (MPD). Now, I am posting a revised version of the steps plus the associated police clearance application payments.

Siyempre, we use the police clearance as part of a list of requirements need when applying for something in the bank, at work, or in a government facility. In this post, I will be detailing the steps on how a police clearance (certificate and ID card) can be obtained if you are near Manila Police District.

Location of MPD:

Located along UN Avenue in Ermita, Manila, its nearest landmark include Manila Medical Center (Manila Med) so if you're riding LRT 1, just stop at UN Avenue station.

Requirements for getting a police clearance in MPD:
  • CASH - you'll have to spend at least 300 Php, the breakdown of which is as follows 
    • Cashier 1 (I really don't know what payment here is for): 100 Php 
    • Cashier 2 (beside Cashier 1 for pPolice clearance ID card and certificate): 200 Php 
    • Manual fingerprinting donation: at least 1 Php 
    • Take note that two receipts should be issued to you, one from each cashier

PROCEDURES OR STEPS TO GET A POLICE CLEARANCE IN MANILA:

You start at the small entrance on the left side of the MPD complex where you'll see a small booth with men handing out an application form and people writing and waiting for their clearances to be released. So, this area is the registration and waiting area at the same time.

1. Fill out the application or registration form.
    Time allotment: 3-5 minutes. This varies depending on your writing speed

After filling in the necessary information, proceed to the cashiers at the left passageway. You'll just have to follow the trail of how the booths are arranged.

2. Pay 100 Php in the first cashier.

   Time allotment: 2-3 minutes. Just bring the exact amount para mabilis hehe. Don't forget the receipt 'cause it will be checked.



So I checked the first receipt (refer to photo above). It's issued by the Office of the Treasurer pala. Maybe it's a contribution to the city's coffers associated with safety? I don't know haha.

3. Proceed to the next booth to pay 200 Php for the police clearance ID card and certificate.
 
    Time allotment: 2-3 minutes. Again bring the exact amount para walang problema hehe  and don't forget the second receipt.


Here's the second receipt you should have received after passing the cashier booths located adjacent to each other.

4. Manual fingerprinting.
  You will then get inside the Main Area for processing everything and look for the manual fingerprinting area. There you'd have your hands dirty with ink. Hence, the guys handling that section will be ASKING you to DONATE for their wet wipes. Show your form and receipts to them.
    Time allotment: 2-3 minutes
   
5. Data encoding.
    Once done with step 4, look back and you'll see chairs. Line up (by sitting) and wait for your turn to show your application form to the data encoders. They will have computers with screens facing you so that you'd be able to double check the information they're typing. Make sure there's no problem in the information they inputted.
    Time allotment: 3-5 minutes
   
6. Face capture (photo) and digital signature input, plus biometrics.
   When you're finally done with the data encoding, the encoder will give you a printout. Give this together with your receipts to the section for photo capture, digital signature and biometrics. Basta andiyan lang yan, madaling mahanap, promise.
    Here, the facilitator will ask you to remove any earrings, eyewear, etc so that your bare face will be placed on your police clearance ID. Here, the facilitator will request that you place your right thumb on the biometric scanner four (4) times to record your thumb print. It's also in this section wherein you'd have to sign digitally.
    Take note that your receipts and the printout handed to you will not be given back in this area. Why? You will be asked to go back to the entrance or waiting area. There you'd just have to wait for a few minutes so that your police clearance ID  and certificate will be released.
    Time allotment: 5-10 minutes

7. Releasing area. WAIT.
   Here, you'd just have to wait until your name is called. Releasing of my clearance ID and certificate only took 5 minutes hehe. It's really fast. Well, I guess it depends on the number of people who are there. Nung time ko, Friday morning, konti lang tao.
    Time allotment: 5-10 minutes

There it is! Swabe ba? Hope you'd be able to get your police clearance certificate and ID in the Manila Police District super fast. Please be aware though that the duration it would take might depend on whether or not there's a lot of people
