In an effort to secure a Yellow card, Postal ID and voter's ID in Makati where I have been living for a total of 7 years now, I decided to get a Police Clearance in Makati Central Police Station. I will show you the step by step process according to my experience of how I was able to get a Police Clearance for someone like me who has NO previous record of crimes or cases against me.

How much is the cost of getting Police Clearance? It depends on your purpose. In my case I paid Php 50 - cedula (community tax), Php 50 - photo and Php 250 as the official processing fee. A total of Php 350 is needed to get Police Clearance here in Manila. Validity is 6 months only so you need to get one again after that. If it is about traveling abroad like getting or if you have firearms, it would cost from Php 400-500. If you are a seaman, it is Php 200. The rest, it is only Php 50.

police clearance in makati how to get


What you should need to know before you get your Police Clearance?
1. Bring a black pen for your convenience.
2. They don't care how you dress surprisingly but yeah just wear something presentable.
3. It took me total of 2 hours to finish so I guess you should allot 2 more hours for commuting back and forth. So, plan your schedule wisely.
4. While waiting in a shed for those who are also waiting for their numbers to get called, it rained so hard. To make the story short, we got wet. Better, bring umbrella or raincoat during rainy season. 
5. There's a small store near the waiting area if you get hungry or thirsty.
6. During the taking of photo, there's a difference of how they do it compared to Postal ID. They don't ask for finger prints - just the photo. They even allow the both of the hair to be shown in front.

The only reason why I got Police Clearance is I lack the requirements of Postal ID: birth certificate and one valid government ID. I was advised by the security guard I can get Police Clearance instead.
