Obtain Police Clearance Certificate South Africa
Louwrens Koen Attorneys can assist applicants to apply for and collect their SAPS clearance certificate.
We assist applicants locally and worldwide by submitting their SAPS 91(a) finger print form directly to the Central SAPS Office in Pretoria and collecting the issued certificate. The SAPS 91(a) can be couriered to our office and we will courier the original SAPS clearance back to you.
All South African police clearance certificates are processed and issued out of the Central SAPS Office in Pretoria, Gauteng and remain valid for a period of 6 months. Certificates less than 7 months old can be reprinted with a new date and remain valid for a further 6 months.
You can apply for your SA police clearance at your nearest SAPS branch or South African Embassy by taking your original passport or ID book and paying the application fee. In South Africa the fee is ZAR 96.00. The application will then be couriered by the SAPS branch of submission or Embassy to the Central SAPS office for processing. Once finalised the original certificate is couriered back to the SAPS branch of submission or Embassy for collection.
Delays occur when the SAPS branch of submission or Embassy courier the documentation. There are often delays in sending the documentation to and from Pretoria and this can add weeks or months to the finalisation of the certificate.
We charge the following to assist with police clearance applications:
- R 750 to submit the finger print form and collect the certificate once issued
