because once is enough

Hi, everyone! :)

Some of you already know that I have a new job, and that means I have to complete my pre-employment requirements all over again! Just this morning, I picked up my long-overdue voter's ID at the COMELEC office in Parañaque with ease! I just had to call them the day before to confirm if my ID is already available for pickup. After that, since I'm already near the Parañaque City Hall, I've decided to get a police clearance as well. And boy, it was a breeze! Maybe it's because of the new government, the system's improved, and I'm thankful for that.

Here's how I got my police clearance in Parañaque: 
(Author's note: These instructions apply to getting police clearance in Parañaque. They may not be the same for all cities.)

Step 0: Go to the Parañaque City Hall. You can view a map here.

Step 1: Get a community tax certificate or cedula. A cedula is basically the only requirement you need to have to secure a police clearance. To get one, go to the Treasury office, and fill out a paper with your details, such as birthday, name, address, etc. Next, you will be paying a certain amount for your tax, which could be as low as Php 7.25, depending on your tax requirement.

Step 2: Go to the Police Clearance processing window 1. There, an officer will ask you your purpose for securing a police clearance. Tell him/her that it's for local employment. He/she will then give you an order for payment form indicating how much you should pay for the police clearance. For local employment, you need to pay Php 110. Once you receive the form, you should go back to the Treasury to pay for it.

Step 3: Go to Window 2. LOLZ. Once you're there, you just have to go through each window until your police clearance is released. But of course, I'll give you the details. On the Window 2, an officer will ask you to pay an additional Php 75 for the photo and printing. Don't worry! You don't have to go to the Treasury to pay for it; you'll just pay there (which makes it more questionable) LOLZ. She will also give you a form that you need to fill out. Take note some of the information needed from you: height, weight.

Step 4: Fingerprinting. Next, you will go to the finger printing guy who will get your prints. TIP: Bring your own wet wipes. A boy next to the finger printing guy is selling wet wipes for Php 3 per sheet! It's too much! Haha. But you'll be needing that so you should just be prepared. The Kuya will do the finger printing job for you, so don't worry if you don't know which finger will go to the ink first. LOLZ

Step 5: Have your photo taken. You're close enough to getting your police clearance! Just have your photo taken, and you're almost there! Remember: it's okay to smile. :)

Step 6: Wait for your name to be called. Holding your police clearance receipt, you will now just have to wait for your name to be called. Once your turn comes, read through the form to check your details, or if there are misspelled names or wrong information. The girl who got her clearance ahead of me saw that her gender was male instead of female. She had it changed right then and there. Me, I got mine fine, so I'm done! :)

One Time, Big Time Tips:
1. Be there early. Go as early as 8AM to avoid crowds.
2. Bring exact amount of money, so payment transactions will be easier.
3. Bring your own black ballpen.
4. Wear smart casual but comfy clothes.
5. Don't hesitate to ask questions. It's cool. :)

Let me know if this post was able to help you! Thanks! :)

Stay tuned, I'll be writing about how to get an NBI clearance the hassle-free way next. :)



  1. hello how many hours did it take you to complete the process? are they open on weekends?

    1. Hi Justin, I think it took me about an hour for the entire process. The burden was during the payment for the police clearance, since there were a lot of people and few cashiers. I haven't tried going there on a weekend, but I suggest you call the City Hall to confirm. Thank you and good luck! :)

  2. this is very helpful, my daughter need to get a Police clearance for their OJT this summer.

    1. Hi Ms. Jhoypax,

      Thank you very much for reading and for leaving a comment. I truly appreciate it. Good luck to you and your daughter! :)

  3. Very informative and helpful!

    I am from Caloocan and I will be working in San Juan, Can I get a Police clearance in Caloocan or Does it have to be in San Juan? Pardon my ignorance lol

  4. Hi Tofs!

    I think its best to get it from the city where you live. I'm sure that would be less of a hassle. Thanks for reading and good luck! :)

  5. they didnt ask you for a baranggay clearance??
