You must be aware to make sure to wear something appropriate. Some of the NBI Clearance Branch are very strict with what ever you wear. But unfortunately, the clothes we usually wear everyday when we go to out are mainly not allowed within your NBI Clearance Outlets.

However, to be honest, we do not seen or read any kind of official statement or the policy about the dress code. But we’ve heard that there are some cases that an applicant was denied of the entry just because of they are wearing shorts.
