You may not apply for a pardon until the waiting period expires. The waiting period includes your sentence plus any probation periods. Once these have been served in full, you start the application process.
A pardon application may be accelerated if you have urgent need to have a clear record, such as a job out of the country.
Certain applicants will now have to provide additional information that:
Explains why they are applying for a pardon,
Describes what measurable benefit a pardon would provide to them, and
How a pardon would assist them in their rehabilitation into society.
Note: Applicants convicted of summary offences which are not listed in Schedule 1 of the Criminal Records Act, do not need to provide this information.
