How long does the validation process take for OV and EV certificates?

Typically, the validation process for OV and EV certificates takes between 2-5 business days. OV certificates don’t require as much vetting as EV certificates, but they also don’t come with the green address bar. And if you can qualify for an OV certificate, you can probably qualify for an EV certificate as well – so it’s recommended that you opt for the premium EV option, as the green address bar offers tremendous bang for your buck.

A lot of the validation process depends on customer response times and it’s better to have the documents you need ready to go when the Certificate Authority (CA) contacts you, to make the process move as quickly and smoothly as possible.
