Police Clearance Certificates Simplified

  • by

Starting out on your own to obtain a Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) could well be the beginning of a frustrating process, one that’ll waste your time and money to boot.

People who regularly travel overseas or work in industries that require a PCC have already been down that road, only to discover that there are document procurement specialists such as Doc Assist who make the regular renewal of PCC’s a breeze for them.

For instance, if you take someone that works off-shore on oil rigs for 6 months or more at a time, with only a short period of down-time in-between, you can be absolutely certain that they don’t want to spend some of that on-shore time applying for and following up on the progress of a PCC.

Relying on Doc Assist to simplify getting a PCC

Instead of going to a local police station to start the process of getting a PCC, someone with little time makes a call to Doc Assist, supplies the team of document procurement professionals with all they need to apply for a PCC on their behalf, and then relaxes, knowing their application is in the best hands possible.

Doc Assist makes daily applications for PCC’s on behalf of clients

Because the team at Doc Assist submits applications for PCC’s on behalf of clients on a daily basis, they are familiar with everything it takes to smooth the process and cut out any unnecessary delays.

This team will also give you all the tips you need to make sure that your application forms are filled in correctly, as the smallest mistakes on these forms can cause even more delays.

What you need to apply for a PCC through Doc Assist

The only real legwork you’ll need to do initially will be to have your ID or Passport certified and to take your fingerprints at your closest police station. After this, Doc Assist takes over and sees the entire process through, from start to the final delivery of your PCC.

Here’s what you need to send to Doc Assist to get started on your police clearance certificate:

  • 2 copies of your passport or ID
  • Fingerprints – taken at the police station
  • If you want both your maiden and married surname on your PCC, you’ll need to send the team your marriage certificate as well. Can’t find your marriage certificate? Not to worry, Doc Assist can help you get a copy of your marriage certificate in a jiffy, no sweat!
  • Last but not least, let the team know which country you’ll be using the PCC in

Renewing a PCC via Doc Assist

The process for renewing your PCC involves the same as above to be sent to Doc Assist. A PCC is only valid for 6 months, so, if you do a lot of travelling in and out of South Africa for work or study, you’re going to need to keep track of when your PCC expires, to ensure you always have a valid one on time.
