NARIC tries to handle all files within this period.
This period starts from the date of submission of the required documents. If you submit an incomplete file, we contact you to request submission of the missing documents.
The handling period starts when the missing documents are added to the file. You have 6 months to send in the missing documents. If you fail to do so, your file will be closed. If the 6 month period has passed and you submit the missing documents after all, you must pay again or present a valid proof of exemption. So make sure that your file is complete before submitting it.
There is an exception for refugees. (link) More information is available at the page containing information for refugees.
When the authenticity of a foreign qualification is questioned, NARIC may exceptionally extend the period to conduct the necessary authenticity checks.
