Whether you are a first-time job seeker or hired by a new company, securing police clearance is essential to getting and starting your job. And since many people are applying for this document, the Philippine National Police (PNP) now allows Filipinos to get their PNP police pass online and pay through GCash. So, if you are wondering how to pay Police Clearance via GCash, keep reading.
What is Police Clearance?
A government-issued document certifying that an individual has no criminal record, a Police Identity Card is one of the main requirements employers ask for job seekers. In addition, this document is a valid ID commonly accepted in the Philippines for various transactions, including credit cards, NBI clearance, and national ID applications. Otherwise, a Police Certificate cannot be used as a valid ID when applying for or renewing Comelec’s passport and voter registration.
You can get it by the standard method of waiting in line at police clearance offices in town or city halls, but getting it online may be a quicker option.
How much is the Police Clearance fee?
The Police Clearance Fee is P150, and around P10 or more may be applied to the convenience fee depending on the chosen counter-dealer. In contrast, first-time job seekers no longer have to pay P150 under RA 11261.
