Hi guys,

I'm hoping this Police Clearance Certificate won't take too long, as I'm out of work and want to emigrate but can't get a work permit overseas without this Certificate. I applied and paid last Thursday, they informed me that I can't send it via a courier and that they'll send it themselves.

Has anyone else had a good / bad experience with the wait time etc? I'm staying in Cape Town side at the moment. I'm seeing varying information across Google saying it can take anything from 10 days from receiving the application, to 12 weeks (typical). Hoping to find some info from people that have done it recently and what their experience was.

Thanks in advance!

Wonder if companies do this check how long it takes.
They use a different service. It's usually within 48 hours and doesn't count as a full Police Clearance Certificate, although it does access the police database.
