You’ll be given a unique PR number and added to a database that is shared with a large group of South African companies who will take extra care to confirm your identity with any application e.g., credit applications, store accounts.
Any applicant using your name will need to provide your unique PR number to successfully process the application, giving you an added layer of protection.
