You will only receive an SMS with reference number when they capture you application in the system, that is after they verified your PR from Pretoria.

One wonders though why they can just look into the system for such a simple process.

The verification should take 2 weeks but they are taking 4 months to do just that.

I called the HA call center and they couldn't give me the reference number. When you called them did they ask you your passport number or PR number?

I didn't get the ref number from call centre. I gt it from the office of application immediately when I applied for ID. The application form have a bar coded number that becomes your ref number. Its start with 000... .

Hi there,

How do I proceed to do the verification of PR before applying for the ID?I'm going on Friday to collect my PR certificate and I have no clues on how to proceed. The immigration practitioner is charging me for it, so if I can do it myself I would appreciate some help? Thanks.

The IDs Section will do it for you. Just take a note of the barcode number on your ID application form before you submit. It is on the page that has your fingerprints and your picture. This will be your reference number.
