Q & A: Background Clearance

Q. Will the fact that a friend’s application was delayed by a background clearance mean that I will incur the same delay, given that we are from the same country?

Answer: Although the countries in which an applicant has resided can be a factor in the duration of the processing of a background clearance, it is not always the case that all applicants from a given country incur the same processing delays – short or long. The individual circumstances of the
applicants will be a factor.
