PRP 26b and 26c
 
Please help with input.

My wife and 5 yr old daughter submitted at the same time {PRP 26B and 26c} in Feb 2019.

Just received sms that my daughters application is available for collection.

Is this normal that my wifes 26B application does not come out at the same time since they submitted at the same time?

Very normal. Minors usually take less than 4 months whilst the spouse will take about 3 years!!

Yeaaah, i applied (PRP26C) for my son in March 2019, and today it says it is ready for collection.

I think generally for the spouses it takes longer and minors it takes shorter time. It is same thing for the relative visa i applied for my son and it was ready for collection in 3 weeks. My husband applied and it has been 2 months now but contact centre said it is still at head office not yet sent for adjudication. someone also said relative visa for spouses is taking 3 months. so weare still waiting.

26c
 
Hi All,

Is it true that after collecting PRP for a child 26C, one needs to go to home affairs to apply for an ID number for the child?

Congratulations @Fortune07. If I may ask regarding your son's application for PRP section 26(c), did you during March and now when you got it send any follow-up emails or anything of that sort. I applied for my son's PRP section 26(c) in May 2019 and am hoping it will be out soon. However, I have heard others saying it has taken them over 2 years to get PRP for minors. So I guess you were very lucky to get it in 7 months.

Thanks Mhopis.

As i have been reading that dependent PRPs take at least 2 yrs to come out i never bothered. i said i will only start following up after a yr and half or so. i was really surprised to get an email that the PR has been dispatched. I collected it today. Now next week i wanna go see if i will be able to get an ID number allocated to him.

Hang in there for your son, hopefully it will be out before 8 months like mine.

You dont need to. Its not a must. But you may if you want to. When the ID number is out they can then print you an SA Birth Certificate for the child

Hi Jollem, Was this response referred to me?

If yes, if there is a possibility to get him the SA birth Cert, then why not get it? i will love to, one never knows where it will come in handy. The handwritten one they gave was was not considered at the bank when i wanted to open an account for him.

Why i said i was going to try was bec i have seen that not all these DHA branches are same. Some pple go to certain branches are succeed on sthg while others go to others and do not succeed.
