After you apply

If you've applied online, you'll get a confirmation email when your application is submitted. The organisation you applied with will get one too.

Most PVG applications are completed within 14 days (not including postage time). If you've made any mistakes, or if we have to make any extra checks, your application may take longer to complete.

If you submitted your PVG application more than 14 days ago, you can contact Disclosure Scotland to check it's progress.
