You’ve been HIT: Reasons why you can’t 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.

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 F*** just happened?

Well… My precious little young one, you’ve just been HIT!

What’s the deal with this HIT?

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

Once a 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.

What to do when you were HIT?

Nothing! As long as you don’t have a criminal record then you’re good to go. You just need to wait for the date of release of your NBI Clearance and claim it or ask someone to pick your NBI Clearance for you. You just need to be patient.

You might be aware of 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 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.

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.

    Every year i apply for clearance, and for the past two year i have never had a “hit”. I applied for one again recently and now I’ve been “hit”! My last name is very uncommon together with my middle name, so how come 3 years ago I have a hit then 2 years without then now with hit again! Whats the deal?…

    I went to the nbi satellite office in marikina riverbanks last April 29 and they had me go back May 2. When I went there last May 2 there was a message in their releasing booth that says “wala munang releasing, balik May 3.” Without any explanation why. Since i had work i opted to go back today May 6. I arrived ther 720 am. A few people were already in line waiting. 8a, one personnel gave instructions where people should sit. It was so disorganized that people just went to the available seats and did not consider that there were people who arrived early which caused a lot of people to get irritated. I came to get my NBI clearance in the releasing booth and was advised that I was cleared but i had to go back on May 12 since they do not have any printer. VERY INCONVENIENT. There were people who already were frustrated and the personnel was no accommodating at all and even said that if you want to get it today you can go to the NBI office in Manila. Really now???

    I wanted to say a lot of things and i wanted to look for a manager but there was none. Why are satellite offices not provided extra inks? How much would it cost, i’ve been paying taxes eversince i started working and I wonder why we don’t think in advance and give extra supplies. Is this how NBI manages their customers. We pay a minimum of php115 for a paper that will prove that we did not commit any crime. How much does a paper cost? And how much is you ink? Basic supplies that should never run out. And you should train your people how they should talk and explain to their customers. A lot of companies look for NBI clearance to have the employment processed and a week delay is not something that hardworking tax payers deserve. Your wasting our time because of incompetent officials not thinking of how they can serve their people well. Where do you place the money that you get everyday? This says a lot about the leaders that you have.

  9. Giedynah says:

    I was expecting na di mag hit because of my unique name until now di pa rin ako maka move on. Bakit? I really want to k ow if sino pa kapareho ko ng name na akala ng lahat pati ng mga magulang ko wala talaga ako kapareho. Pwede ba tanungin ang personel kung sino at kung taga saan siya?

    1. Kirby says:

      Me too. I have a unique name. I was being HIT too. Whats the reason?

    2. Gelsandra says:

      Me too. Confident ako na makukuha ko that day but then it was a HIT.. I applied at Ortigas, wrong move kasi ang hassle. napadaan lang ako kasi kailangan ko ng valid ID that day, thought it would be easy. I didnt got to ask WHY.. :(

  10. Dj says:
