AIPP - Documents Needed

Recommended Posts

GoDz85

Good day all,

 

We are moving along quite quickly with regards to the AIPP. I am just worried that we need supporting documents that we currently don't have.

Please can you assist me with the required documents that we need for the AIPP program?

Unabridged birth certificates?

Unabridged marriage certificate?

Police clearance certificates?

 

Thanks so much

Hi @GoDz85

Unabridged birth and marriage certificates are through the Department of Home Affairs and this is NOT quick unfortunately, I'm not sure if Docassist or one of these companies can actually do it any faster? Police clearance are through your local SAPS office, pretty straightforward and costs about R140. Our SAPS told me 6-8 weeks and that is exactly how long it took both times. I believe there is a Postnet in Pretoria situated across from the office that issues the clearance certificates who can help, but not sure at what cost and if it speeds up the process.

Hope this helps

Thank you so much!

Another question, with regards to the work permits, what documents are required?

Thanks again

I don't believe you need unabridged birth or marriage certificates - does the document checklist actually state that for AIPP? The straightforward version should be fine?

Thank so much. 

 

The document checklist doesn't state that we need unabridged birth certificates or unabridged marriage certificate but Im just worried when it comes to applying for PR.

For PR we used our handwritten marriage certificate with no problems. I needed my unabridged birth certificate to prove relation to family in Canada, but my husband didn't need his at all - adults don't need them (but children do). It is best to have these documents though as they might be needed in the future. We used DocAssist to get ours and they did it much faster - we applied for my, my husband and my dad's unabridged birth certificates at the same time and only used DocAssist for mine and my dad's (as my husband's wasn't needed). My and my dad's certificates were ready in a few weeks and my husband's wasn't ready after 9 months, at which point we used DocAssist again to get it just before we left (after we've already received our PR).

We didn't need unabridged anything for PR - though my kid's birth certificate is unabridged anyway.

Hi @Syeren we just got our endorsement approval last night so now we are eligible to apply for work permits and permanent residency. 

Took St Johns about 2 weeks to approve the endorsement.

Now we are still waiting for our police clearance certificates (been 3 weeks now) and then we will apply for the work permits.
