102 - Received at Head Office and processing has begun. Mostly likely that its now assigned to a Case officer and normally takes upt to 3 months in here and moves to stage 103
103 - Your application has been processed and now depending with the outcome the printing and signing of stickers starts.normally 1 to 2 months here. DG has to sign your sticker or certificate.
104 - Your application has been dispatched to the office of application. They capture this info and wait for the shipping so you may wait a lot here. Depending with which office you applied you may wait here as well. I know someone who waited for 3 months
105 - Received at office of application and ready for collection
106 - collected by the applicant
@Skilled,

I've been waiting for my PR about 8 month already. I called HA on Tus, they checked and confirmed that it was with Pretoria head office for processing, and i should follow up in 3 weeks time. Then on the same day in the afternoon, i received a sms from HA saying my application has been finalised and to collect in 5 working day. is this possible, or system error? And, i decided to go on their website to track my application, it showed code 104. So now im a bit confused.

please can you advise?

It means they have finalised your application and its on the dispatch counter at Head office or on its ways to your office of application.

To know the outcome you can call your office of application or you can walk in anyday. But for the certificate or whatever it is you need to wait from 5days to 14 days.. and sometimes a month.

But once it shows status 105.. it means that your office of application has receieved it and captured it in their system.

Good luck, I received an SMS too few days ago but still don't know the outcome.
