Authentication for new certificates could take as little as 1 hour or up to several days, depending on the verification information you provide and whether or not your certificates are pre-approved.
- If your organization is the legal holder of the domain, you can expect to receive your certificate within 1 hour of your request.
- VeriSign (Symantec)® Trust Center Enterprise Account stores pre-approved domain, organizational and contact information. When you submit a certificate request that contains the authenticated information, VeriSign (Symantec) instantly issue your certificate.
- Processing times for EV SSL Certificates may take longer due to additional verification requirements mandated by the Extended Validation (EV) SSL Guidelines.
