I tried to apply online today and it seems like the error about "Invalid Reference Number and Payment Date" still exists. Does any one from here actually have a successful transaction via the NBI website recently?

Loreli Angeli Macapagal said...

I've been doing this since morning after paying at the globe center I immediately tried to go online but this shit always comes out "Please make sure you have not mistyped your reference number and payment date/birthdate."

WHAT TO DO NOW????????

Marie said...

AAAArgh! Me too! Nkkailang ulit na ko, same error message p din. Nakaka-frustrate!!!

bbqvinegar said...

Ok na ba ung mga email registration nio? Ganyan din akin e. Pero baka dahil sat at sunday ako nagrregister ng transaction at email... update pls

Marie said...

Hi! Just found out that you need to wait for at least 24 hours before you can use the reference number of your gcash payment. I was able able to complete the process the next day. It seems that the system can only recognise the gcash payment after 24 hours.

ANON said...

Just an additional input based on my experience last August 23, 2013. :-)

I paid through a Gcash outlet on August 22, 2013 at around 7pm. Prior to purchase I called NBI online helpdesk and talked to a very nice agent named Eric who assisted me throughout the whole process. According to Sir Eric, regardless of what time (morning or evening) and where (Globe Business Center, Villarica pawnshops, Tambunting pawnshops, etc) you made your Gcash cash in transaction it will all be transmitted by Gcash at night (probably after closing of all Gcash outlets) and will be encoded by NBI from 10am to 12nn the following day. So if you follow the 24hr rule, like for example you paid at 9am today and checked 9am the following day, you will still get an error message. Likewise, even if you made a payment at night like in my case at 7pm, you will be able to validate your reference number between 10am to 12nn the following day, depending on when the NBI agents are able to encode your reference number on their system. Hope that helps. :-)

And if you choose to claim your NBI clearance at Robinsons Galleria, you go directly to Step 3, there is a dedicated (much shorter) line for NBI online applicants but after picture taking and fingerprint scanning you will still have to line up at step 4 together with the non online applicants. :-)

PS: SM North department store Gcash outlet doesn't accept NBI clearance cash ins for quite some time already according to the lady I spoke with due to transaction problems. Not sure if other SM department stores has that problem.

I had the same mistyped error message and it was indeed annoying. I sent an email to and after 1 hour they replied that I should try again and that they have fixed the issue. I did and it worked and I'm on my way to visit a branch now. Hope this helps the others.
