    Default Security Clearance in 1 week!

    Hi,

    I secured a job(a bank) last month and the company applied for my Security Clearance at nsv. mod.uk

    Submitted all my details Monday morning. I got couple of emails from enquiring them asking about my to check about my certification and mother's surname and any other address within 5 years. By Friday (in 5 days) I see the progress status as "Complete". I am getting worried how come the process is complete in 5 days?

    Being pessimistic Does it take just 1 week to conclude if it was a failed/rejected outcome?

    This is first time I am going through this is the page status

    Your application's status is: Completed

    SC Completed. (Submitted on: dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm)

    I dont have anything as such to worry about, but 1 week to complete SC!

    My last one was 2/3 weeks.
    One week sounds quick but they won’t reject that quick.
    Are you sure it doesn’t just mean the application is complete?

    *their*

    That's my experience too, but the OP said it was via nsv.mod.uk
    Although we've had some fibs on here recently.

    I did speak to NSVS and they said process is complete and its up to the sponsor and I have speak to the sponsor. I am expecting some communication from then soon.

    That just means your applicaion is complete.

    The clue is here "Your application's status is: Completed"

    How long from now depends on if they've paid for extradited vetting, and how much research they need to do. My last one was 2 weeks from this point. That was extradited and I've held it twice before.
