You’ve been HIT: Reasons why you can’t afford a One Day Processing NBI Clearance!

Youve Been Hit Reasons Why You Cant Afford A One Day Processing Nbi Clearance

It’s supposed to be easy and should be a one day job. It should be a get-in-get-off-and-get-out kind of thing, right? You were half smiling when you approached the Releasing window when suddenly, the woman from the other side of the counter deliberately stamp a date on the back of the receipt and hand it back to you.

You looked at it and it says “HIT” then a Date of Release is written which is on the next eight (8) working days.

What the hell just happened?

Well… My precious little young one, you’ve just been HIT or also known NBI Clearance HIT!

What’s the deal with this NBI Clearance HIT?

“HIT” is the term used by NBI Clearance Outlets if the applicant has a namesake and requires the NBI Clearance to be verified further before released to its owner. There are 104 Million (and counting) breathing individuals in the Philippines. With that size of population, there’s a very small chance that you have a namesake who already applied for their NBI Clearance.

You may want to read: NBI Online Registration

Once an NBI Clearance HIT status appears, NBI Personnel needs to perform further verification on the applicant’s identity. Applicants are instructed to return after eight (8) to ten (10) working days to claim their NBI Clearance Online Application.

What to do when you were HIT?

So what should I do after receiving a HIT? Nothing! As long as you don’t have a criminal record, you don’t have to worry about it. All you need to do is just need to wait at the comforts of your home and go on with your life. Wait for the date of release of your NBI Clearance, come back to the branch where you applied and claim it or ask someone (authorized representative) to pick your NBI Clearance for you. You just need to be patient.

You might be aware of several horror stories about having a namesake with criminal records, right? This is the time when the NBI Personnel do a further investigation about you.

The time has come (After Several Days of Waiting!)

When the assigned date of release of your NBI Clearance arrives, come early as possible. Claiming your NBI Clearance should be a quick business for you since they already did what they want to do.
The thing that can make you stay much longer and delays you to get your NBI Clearance Online is due to:

  1. Long queue lines because of high volume of NBI Clearance applicants and the people who also want to claim their NBI Clearance scheduled on the same day as yours.
  2. NBI Clearance Quality Control Interview (to know more about this, refer to this separate article.)

We advise you to bring at least two (2) Government Issued Identification Cards and especially your NBI Clearance Receipt. The valid IDs will prove your identity whenever they require you to undergo an on the spot NBI Clearance Quality Control Interview.

What is NBI Clearance Quality Control Interview?

In my own understanding, the NBI Clearance Quality Control Interview is a process by which an NBI Clearance Personnel reviews or verify the true identity of the NBI Clearance applicant. This happens everytime an applicant with a namesake have a pending case or arrest warrant.

This results from receiving an NBI Clearance HIT Status in Database verification process. The derogatory record can be his or her own criminal case or under his namesake. In short, your name has been tagged as critical and NBI wants to make sure that they’ll be giving out NBI Clearances to “clean” persons.

Why is this Happening?

The disappointment of not having my NBI Clearance really bugs me while sitting on the cab going to the NBI Main Office. Why did NBI Clearance Main office doing this Quality Control Interview? Then I realize few things that might be a good reason why applicants is suffering this.

Maybe:

  • You have a pending or ongoing case.
  • You are under for arrest and needs to be identified in relation to a crime by the Police Authorities
  • Your Namesake has a pending or ongoing case or
  • Your namesake are under for arrest and needs to be identified in relation to a crime by the Police Authorities

Another piece of advice, wear the appropriate attire when going to NBI Clearance Branch.

When you are applying for an NBI Clearance, wearing casual attire is usually appropriate. Please keep in mind that it is always important to be tidy and well-groomed during the application of your

Unfortunately, the clothes you wear everyday to the mall, or out with your friends, usually aren’t suitable inside the NBI Clearance outlets. There is certain (unwritten) policy.

Frankly, if there’s any, I haven’t seen the Official Policy Statement concerning the dress code inside the NBI Clearance centers. Any wise man can argue with me that since there is no written policy about this, you can deliberately wear anything. What we’re trying to follow here is the “general rule” when making any transactions with Government Establishments.

To show you what outfits that should be avoided when applying in NBI Clearance, here are examples of what not to wear on a job interview.

You know what, we’re getting alot of comments about the NBI Clearance HIT. It’s making every NBI Clearance applicant’s life harder. Anyway, if you’re interested on how to apply for Philippine Passport, you may choose to read the tutorial here.

But before we go, we would like to announce that we have written the updated guide on How To Apply NBI Clearance Online.

Best of luck with your NBI Clearance application! If you’ve got a great NBI Clearance HIT experience or valuable tips to add (or a question to ask), just leave a comment below.

Ask Someone To Claim Your NBI Clearance Using the Authorization Letter

Ask Someone To Claim Your Nbi Clearance Using The Authorization Letter

NBI Clearance Authorization Letter – One reason why you can’t claim your NBI Clearance on the same day you applied is because you’ve just been tagged as “HIT”. There are a lot of reasons why you got that status but we’re not going to discuss that today.

Unfortunately, you will go home empty handed and wait for at least eight (8) working days before your NBI Clearance Online is released.

If you are a busy Employee, leaving your job for a day just to claim your NBI Clearance is not a wise thing to do.

Not unless you are scheduled for NBI Clearance Quality Control Interview, in which your presence is required for questioning.

If you happen to know someone who’s willing to claim your NBI Clearance on your behalf, why not do it? It will save you time. Plus, you don’t have to file for a vacation leave just to claim your NBI Clearance. Claiming another person’s NBI Clearance is simple. NBI Clearance Outlets allows another person to claim an NBI Clearance that he doesn’t own provided that he presents an NBI Clearance Authorization Letter.

What is an Authorization Letter?

Just like what we have mentioned in our article “How To Apply NBI Clearance – Updated Guide with Photos”, you can claim your NBI Clearance with the help of an authorized representative.

Authorization letter is a dated and signed letter, granting authority to another person to perform a certain task or transaction. Authorization letter is usually used for business purposes.

You may want to read: How To Do An NBI Online Registration

Authorization letters plays an important role in claiming another person’s NBI Clearance. It is a valuable requirement presented before the NBI Clearance Outlet releases the NBI Clearance to another party who doesn’t own it.

In writing an NBI Clearance Authorization Letter for Claiming NBI Clearance, it must be polite and written in a positive tone. Make sure to state clearly the purpose of the letter and the important details such as:

  • Your Name.
  • Name of the Authorized Person.
  • The Date.
  • Some Personal Details about yourself and the authorized person (such as Age, Address and Contact Numbers).
  • Signatures (You and the Authorized Person).

There is no standard template for NBI Clearance Authorization Letter. It can be handwritten, typewritten or Computer printed text. But for the sake of formality and professionalism, we encourage that the NBI Clearance Authorization Letter should be computer printed.

To show you what outfits that should be avoided when applying in NBI Clearance, here are examples of what not to wear on a job interview.

Appropriate Clothing for Males:

  • T-Shirts
  • Polo shirts
  • Pants are allowed
  • A pair of closed shoes is highly encouraged whether it is a rubber or leather shoes

Appropriate Clothing for Females:

  • Sleeved top or blouses
  • Blouse with sweater
  • Turtleneck tops
  • Shirt dress worn with pants
  • Tailored dress

  • Skirts of appropriate length (should not be shorter than 1 inch above the knee)

Note: When wearing skirt above the knee, hosiery is recommended. Color of hosiery should be office appropriate: Black, Gray, Brown, Nude.

I advice males and females not to wear the following when applying an NBI Clearance:

  • Tank tops
  • Shorts / Mini Shorts
  • Flip flops/slippers
  • Revealing, figure-hugging, torn and ragged bottoms
  • Ragged and unclean footwear

8. The releasing area is where they print your NBI Clearance. Just present your NBI Clearance Receipt to the NBI Clearance Personnel and they will print your NBI Clearance.
