We have designed the voucher process to automate checks where possible and minimise the time taken for voucher approval. However, applications must be thoroughly checked for compliance with the scheme rules to help ensure value for money, consumer protection, and detect malpractice. As such, waiting times can vary.

We continue to work to reduce the time between application and issuance, where possible.
