Online NBI Clearance Registration System is UP

Effective, today, January 24, 2014 marks the flagship of NBI's new online registration system. 

Some of us had experienced inconvenience when acquiring NBI Clearance certificates, we woke up early morning usually 4-5am just to get priority numbers and probably got the form in the afternoon.

Worse scenario, some would come back the next day. Sigh.

With this new online system, does it eliminates burden among applicants? Is it effective system? Does it solves the problem on queues? Does it simplifies the processes?

[PH] Is August 09, 2013 A Regular Holiday Or Not?

The reason you were landed here because you were looking for the answer. Is it really a holiday on August 09, 2013? This is quite difficult to answer at least for now simply because the reason is the government still does not declare such. I know you are pretty excited for the mere fact that August 09 should be a holiday right? At least for unofficial statement coming from other external sources.
