Yes, it possible. Some people in those organizations may not like it but it is possible. If you decide to leave the Genbukan organization and you don't violate any of the other rules then you may join the Bujinkan.

What I said was imprecise, I'm afraid. A year or two ago a Genbukan instructor who had originally been in the Bujinkan wanted to leave the Genbukan and rejoin the Bujinkan, and he asked me to intercede directly with Hatsumi sensei on his behalf. I did so, and the response was a definite and unequivocal "no" where former Bujinkan members who had joined the Genbukan are concerned.

The question of a Genbukan member, with experience in only the Genbukan, leaving it to join the Bujinkan is a different issue -- I don't have an answer to that one, it might be possible.
