Based on practical experience, it can be assumed that the preparation of these individuals may take more than 5-6 weeks for some individuals, as some will not be able to provide some annex materials to the questionnaire and application in time. These will be worked on until their application is submitted to the NSA. On the other hand, in the case of persons who have already undergone the "D" level verification process, a faster procedure can be expected.
