The last time I needed to get a NBI clearance was back in 2000. Then last year 2015, I needed to get a new one renew my clearance and only to find out that the process is now different. After reading some posts about this I came to know that I need to do it online. My advice to you is not to visit any NBI satellite offices without filling up an online form for a schedule. Although when I was there last year there were walk-ins but they were asked to fill up a form online and referred to the nearest Internet cafe. With that I think its better you should really start with the step 1 which is going online and fill up the form. My personal experience in applying for a NBI Clearance was a good one. I only spent 25 minutes at their satellite office in Metropolis Alabang. I came from San Pedro Laguna. I arrived at their office almost 12noon and since there is no break time I fall in line. The big guy there was accommodating. At first I’m kind of worried about getting a hit from the computer system as I was able to read some people got hit without them knowing the actual reasons. Luckily, when it was my turned I got no hit while the person a lady doctor in front of me got a hit and was advice to come back after 3-4 days. After that I was asked to fall in line again for the actual NBI clearance document. To my surprised it was printed so fast. My estimation of people in the line was around 50 persons.
