It is a solution to eradicate queuing at the NBI clearance centers, shorten both waiting and processing time," NBI Director Virgilio Mendez said.
Applicants lining up in one of the NBI offices in the Philippines welcomed the move, saying they won't have to spend the whole day just to secure an NBI clearance.
Mendez said the new system allows the NBI to process up to 6,000 clearances in a day, compared to the 4,000 issued during peak months.

Newly-appointed National Bureau of ..., 16 Jan 2014 [cached]
Newly-appointed National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Director Virgilio Mendez yesterday took his oath of office before Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Leila de Lima.
"This is not an easy job but I will give it everything that I have," Mendez said after he took his oath which also coincides with the 36th anniversary of his entering the NBI. Mendez replaced former director Nonnatus Caesar Rojas who resigned from his post four months ago after reports surfaced that some NBI officials had tipped off alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim Napoles that a Makati court was set to issue a warrant for her arrest in connection with the serious illegal detention charges filed by whistleblower Benhur Luy.
Prior to his appointment to the top NBI post, Mendez served since 2011 as the agency's deputy director for regional operations. He started as an agent at the NBI's Zamboanga field office in 1978. In 2004, he was promoted as NBI Regional Director for Region X, then Deputy Director for Comptroller Services from 2007 to 2009, and Deputy Director for Administrative Services from 2009 to 2011. He obtained his law degree from the Divine Word College in Tagbilaran City, Bohol and passed the Bar exams with an average of 81.55 percent. Among the high-profile cases that Mendez personally supervised were the Kristelle "Kae" Devantes case, the 2013 Cagayan de Oro bombing, the Balintang Channel shooting incident involving Philippine Coast Guard personnel that left a Taiwanese fisherman dead last May, the Lahad Datu-Sabah standoff, the Atimonan shooting incident in January last year, the P12 billion Amalilio investment scam and the closure of the illegal mining site in Bayog, Zamboanga del Sur. The official was also responsible for resolving and the filing of cases against suspects in the 2000 Rizal Day bombing at the Light Rail Transit (LRT). At present, Mendez is involved in the investigation into the alleged big-time rice smuggling activities in the country and the identification of the alleged "smuggling king" David Tan.
