However, the current situation will simply “let you know” when you can pick up you clearance. It is possible to pick up the clearance by a representative with an authorization letter and the applicant’s ID.
Can we apply for NBI clearance online? This is the goal of the NBI in the long term but currently it is not yet available. That’s why many people are frustrated in getting the clearance.
Is there an appointment needed to get an NBI clearance? Unlike other agencies, you can go there as a walk-in applicant. Get a number and fall in line. Some centers permit the use of numbers the other day if you were not able to reach the quota for the day. For senior citizens, it is advised for them to be accompanied by a reliable person.
The opening of NBI clearance centers has changed due to enormous number of applicants. Still, you can fall in line before 7AM. On the other hand, try to apply for a clearance on lenient days like Tuesday to Wednesday. But there is no guarantee that the people will all be accommodated. NBI clearance centers are closed during holidays and weekends which includes Saturdays and Sundays.
