    Step 5. Wait for the manual review to complete

    After your domain is validated, the CA will review the information submitted and call you to complete the validation.

    Note:

    It takes 3−5 business days to review OV certificates, and 5−7 business days to review EV certificates.

    Step 6. Wait for CA to issue the certificate

    After the review is completed, the CA will issue your certificate. You can download and install it.

    Note:

    • The certificate will be issued only if both the manual review and domain validation are passed.
    • After you applied, there will be a manual review, during which you will receive a call from the US to your organization’s business registration number.
