The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) will resume clearance processing in areas that will be placed under general community quarantine (GCQ) starting Monday, June 1.
The NBI made the announcement after the government decided to start easing quarantine restriction in areas under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) and have them under GCQ.
“We will be resuming our Clearance processing on June 1, 2020 in the areas that were recently re-classified by the IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases) from MECQ to GCQ,” the NBI announced.
With this, the NBI reminded the clearance applicants that they must first have registered and paid online before proceeding to NBI Clearance Centers.
The NBI also told applicants to “strictly follow their preferred appointment dates.”
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the NBI also applicants that escorts are not allowed, to always observe social distancing at all times, always wear a face mask.
NBI Clearance is a certificate issued by the NBI to a person which shows the person has no derogatory or pending criminal record.
The NBI suspended processing NBI clearances last March 18 following the government’s decision to impose quarantine measures.
Last April 30, the NBI resumed clearance processing in some areas that were placed under GCQ.
