Changing the last name in NBI Clearance Process

The entire process of changing last name is considered to be a new application. We can’t classify this as a renewal because there will be changes from our old NBI Clearance. So follow the below steps carefully.

Step 1

  • To start the process of application, create a new account in NBI Clearance website.
  • If you’re wondering why you need creating a new one even if you have already an account in NBI Clearance, its because your old account has still carried your old name.
  • The old name, meaning you still have your maiden name in that account and the website doesn’t allow us to modify it. You may use another email address you have to register.
