If you don’t have a HIT then they will proceed with printing and will call you again to claim your NBI Clearance.
NBI Says I have a HIT!
However, if you have a HIT then you will not be able to claim your clearance right away. NBI would need to check and clear you and this process usually takes around 1-2 weeks. You can return to claim your clearance after that time.
