NBI-Bohol resumes clearance processing on May 18
TAGBILARAN CITY, May 19 (PIA) — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Bohol resumed the processing of clearances on May 18.
The NBI advised the public through its Facebook page on May 17 that the agency will implement guidelines that have to be observed in securing clearance pursuant to the directives set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).
Applicants must register online and pay online before going to any NBI clearance center.
Applicants are also required to strictly follow their preferred appointment dates.
The agency also discouraged those below 21 years old and those 60 years old and above, those with immunodeficiency, comorbidities and other health risks, and pregnant women to get their clearances.
In securing the clearances, the NBI said escorts will not be allowed and applicants are required to wear masks and observe social distancing at all times.
The agency suspended processing NBI clearances last month following the imposition of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in many areas of the country due to the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic.
NBI clearance is a certificate issued by the NBI as proof that a person has no derogatory or pending criminal record.
It can be used as an identification card for many different transactions. (ecb/PIA7-Bohol)
