    Police Clearance Delays

    Hi all! I sent my PCC forms to the Pretoria Records Centre last month via private courier (Aramex), and received confirmation from Aramex that the envelope had been delivered. However, I've not received the acknowledgement SMS from SAPS to say that the docs have been received and are being processed. My local police station says Pretoria is experiencing processing delays at present. I've tried calling and emailing to no avail. Should I be concerned? Is there anything else I can try?

    PCC - Submitting to PTA directly

    Hi everyone, Hoping someone can assist me. I recently submitted my documents directly to the CRC in Pta for a PCC. Although I submitted on the 4th of October and was told 2- 3 weeks until it should be ready (I didn't think this was really realistic in any case) I only got an sms on 21 Oct to say it is being processed. On their online tracking system the registration date refelects as 21 Oct too. Has anyone has the same experience ? Also has anyone had luck getting their PCC before the 2 month mark ? (currently concerned as out ITA requires us to submit the PCC by 2 Dec). Thanks!

    Police Clearance

    Hi all, My husband and I are in Toronto on work permits and need to get police clearance certificates from SA for our PR application. I am considering to use either DocAssist or Apostil ( to get our PCCs. Has anyone used either of these companies recently? Any preference between the two? Also, does the SA police clearance certificates need to be apostilled/attested? Thank you. Kind regards, Hilmarie

    Criminal record check

    Hi all, Has anyone ever tried submitting criminal record checks with verisource, who take approx 2 days, instead of opting for the full police clearance from Pretoria? Thanks!
  7. IRCC, formerly CIC, updates instructions on police certificates with respect to Express Entry selection system. This update may affect individuals who receive an Invitation To Apply (ITA). Please read carefully. To note, PCCs are required upfront. Updates on CIC website -
  8. Hi peoples, I was hoping someone would be able to assist as I can't seem to find any info on this. If you get your PCC back and it indicates you have traffic offenses, like failing to stop or over taking on a solid line, etc. How do you go about getting that cleared from your record? Is it really necessary to do so? Anybody here with experience? This is not for me btw. Some help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, N
  9. Hey all, Anyone out there who can advise on how to quickly and easily get US police clearance? We are applying as skilled workers. Also, does anyone know whether they will ask for US State clearance as well? We spent 6 months in the USA in 2002 (more than 10 years ago), when I worked there as a Guest Researcher. From previous posts on the forum, and the CIC website, I am guessing that we still need police clearance from the USA as you need police clearance for all countries entered since age 18. The last time I tried this, (2008) I was able to get the clearance but my wife's fingerprints kept being returned as "unreadable". I was able to get the clearance document myself, but now have to apply again as its only valid for a year. Back in 2008, this was a costly and frustrating exercise as you need to get the fingerprints at an SA police station, then DHL them to the USA with a cheque for $18 each time; then wait and wait... If anyone knows an easier way, let me know. Our current plan is to have both our fingerprints taken at 4 separate police stations, and then to send all of them to the USA, with a cover letter asking them to please try all sets. One of the 4 should be legible. Lets hold thumbs...
