I was quite surprised as well, my license status was stuck in "Preparing for Consideration" for more than a year. Once it moved past that, both licenses were approved in a week.

Too lazy to go look for it, but how do you check on the status of your application again, if you don't mind me asking?

I just tried your link with my ID and firearm Serial number because I have not received my reference number via sms since submitting two weeks ago.

Website returns: "no hits on ID and Serial number" 

Oh well, wait a bit more.

Literally less than a minute later my SMS arrives from SAPS stating that my Application, with all the correct numbers, is receiving attention at the DFO...

I wonder...:ph34r:

I'm fully aware of those pictures. 

I have no illusion that it will most likely take more than a year to process. 

I was wondering if they didn't just send me an sms because I enquired on the website and that it has no resemblance to where my application is at all. 

But hey, at least I received my Reference number now.

Looking at those quoted times, the DFO at my local Police station did a decent job then... if I can trust the sms, that is.

Yeah with the reference number you can at least track it.. I never got an SMS and Provincial eventually gave me a ref number because the DFO here by us is useless. 

If your DFO is on the ball then that helps a lot and get sent off without too much delay...

I hope for all of us waiting that because those  CFR pics were made public they got a bit of a talking to and got more resources to help process all the apps.

When the application is at the DFO - at what stage is the application then?

As I have it, the DFO is the Designated Firearm Officer at your local police station. So it is at Step 1 if it is with the DFO.

(Please correct me if I'm wrong @Gen)

Eish!!  I have handed in 3 weapons in January under Amnesty (licenses expired a while back) with all the re-application forms, etc, etc.  Paperwork disappeared into the system.  Was called to SAPS last week that the applications are back and I then paid the necessary fees for it to continue into the process.

I was hoping that it was further than step 1!!!!!!!!!
