The problem is that the government requires things it cannot give reliably and with the minimum fuss to its citizens.
I recently was required to get a NBI clearance and here is the deal.
According to their website they have 48 centers that handle between 2000 – 500 per day.
Because their main office are the probably the only place where they can handle 2000 people 2000*48 = 96000 people they can handle 100k people per day, given that we have
based on government statistics here we have unemployed or roughly 2.9Million and an underemployed people about 7Million.
Given that the BIR system for an upper bound can handle roughly 3.5 million people a day 
and that to be included in the unemployment statistics you need to be actively searching for a job this gives us about 2.9 million people who needs an nbi clearance for this year plus who ever is still looking for a job of the 7Million people whose nbi clearance has already expired.
Then NBI centers are barely enough to handle the demand.
What this shows is that the government has a systematic undercapacity to for services that it requires for one to get a job/travel/etc.
We need to demand better planning and better services from the government.

 The satellite office in malls and non big venues handle 500 people per day this makes the estimate very high. I believe a more accurate number could be pegged at 55K based on 1.5 k per regional/district office and 1000 for the satellite office and 500 for the mall offices.
 62,689,000 pool x 64.3 Labor force participation rate x 7.2 unemployment rate. I may be using these numbers incorrectly please correct me if you know better.
 62,689,000 pool x 64.3 Labor force participation ratex 92.8 employment rate x 18.2 underemployment rate
 Estimate based on 96k * 365 , too high because 6 day work week and holidays.
It was without a doubt, a drama worth telling. Carlos Celdran was questioned of his performative tour and was distanced to the Art Dubai hallway in order to finish his on-going tour. With everyone’s amazement, the content of his tour was scrutinized. He was ordered to do his act in front of five men in a close door room where they justify if Carlos somehow talks of Arab nations. As he was released he was told to alter any religious and political content of his tour.
I remember in one of his stop, Carlos talked about the Tripoli Peace Agreement between former Libya leader Ghaddafi and Mrs. Imelda Marcos. In that particular context Carlos told his audience that Mrs. Marcos held a Koran with her as she spoke these words to Ghadafi “Islam is all about peace, but if you are funding a war in my country you are turning Filipino to fight against Filipino, you are also turning Muslim to fight against Muslim. If you are doing this, how then are you following Mohammed?”
