Default South Africans moving from UK to Canada

I was just wondering if there is any other Saffers living in the UK moving to Canada on this very helpful website.
The reason why I am asking is that I would like to know how did you manage to apply for police clearance certificates etc from SA . As we all know getting any info from the SA government is a very slow and painful process.

Howzit
we came via France to Canada from SA. We contacted SA embassy in France, who sent us documents for police clearance document. Biggest hurdle was police in SA wouldn't post the document so a friend in Jhb had to arrange courier to collect it for us and send to us in France.
Stangely enough it was quicker getting the one from SA than it was getting UK police clearance document. Have also found SA embassy in Canada to be really helpful. pm me if you need any more info


just found this link on the SA embassy in UK website - gives details on how to get police clearance certificate - good luck!

You South African types have your own fireworks night tonight in Vancouver as part of the festival of light.
