What is the meaning of NBI HIT? What are the reasons why an applicant may get a HIT when applying for clearance from the National Bureau of Investigation?
You applied for an NBI Clearance this 2018, you filled-in all the required info in the online application form, paid the clearance fee and went to NBI office on your scheduled appointment date to get your bio-metrics. When it is time to get your clearance, you found out you got a HIT! So you are now wondering what could be factor(s) why you ended up with an NBI Hit remarks?
FACTORS and REASONS for NBI HIT
All NBI clearance applicants with “HIT REMARKS” are subjected for further record check with the Identification and Records Division at NBI Manila.
These are the possible reasons for a “Hit Remarks”:
1. The NBI Clearance applicant have a pending criminal and administrative cases before the court, Ombudsman, Sandiganbayan, and other administrative and quasi-judicial bodies. Meaning may nakasalang na kaso sa korte.
2. The applicant have same or similar name with other persons having derogatory record. Meaning may kapareha ka na pangalan or halos parehong pangalan, at yung taong yun ay may kaso or may derogatory record na.
3. The applicant have a previous criminal and administrative cases, and the status of the case needs further verification from an NBI officer.
4. Other government agencies have requested the NBI to hold the clearance of the applicant.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET A HIT in NBI CLEARANCE?
You will need to wait for NBI to finish verifying your records so you can clear the “hit”.
NBI requires all applicants with “hit” remarks to come back to the NBI branch where you processed your clearance application 5 to 10 WORKING DAYS from the date of application.
If your clearance is not urgently needed, iSensey suggest that you come back to the branch after 10 working days, this way you are giving ample time to the case officer to finish record verification.

This 2018, NBI will only issue one type of clearance and that is the “Multi-Purpose Clearance”.
Update: Those with ongoing cases, dismissed cases, etc. This info is from iSensey reader contributor Phoenix (please see comment section, Thank you Phoenix for sharing!)
This is a sharing of iSensey reader Phoenix (please see comment section) regarding those applicants with current cases, dismissed cases, etc that resulted to HIT in NBI.
“Yes it will be released, if the case is already dismissed or withdrawn then secure a Dismissal Order/Order from the Court which handled the case and submit it to the NBI Quality Control and in such case you will be given a NO CRIMINAL RECORD Clearance. If the case is still on-going, you may still secure a clearance but you will be given a RECORD AS STATED Clearance (meaning your case will be reflected in your clearance). If you were previously convicted of a crime, you may also secure a clearance and you will be given a NO PENDING CASE Clearance. Make sure you’re not wanted individual or there is a pending warrant of arrest issued against you for you will be arrested in the NBI the moment you go there. He he”
