    I really feel for you Durban crowd.

    East London. Documents correct with proof of payment. Walk in. 15 minutes later walk out with new 3 year registration form. Very friendly and great service.

    Regards ... Derek

    I always wonder why this is possible. Registered at Port Shepstone, have to wait 4 weeks. When I was in Gauteng in and out within 30 min.

    To avoid a repeat of last year's stuff around handed me at the DoL Durban office (nearly 3 months turnaround time!), I renewed through the Pretoria office of the ECA (SA) this year. I could not believe the difference.

    Pay the money.
    Send a scan of the existing certificates.
    At the end of the next day they could already email back a scan of the renewed registration.

    The only delay was getting the original back down to Durban - the ECA (SA) just needs to refine that part of the deal. But I suppose if you're prepared to have yours couriered individually instead of with others in a batch, you could get that part done quicker if you absolutely need the original urgently.

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Unfortunately that doesn't work here by us.

    No bank or attorney will accept the COC without a copy of your DOL registration letter.
