Unable to receive SCJP certificate from sun

I have taken SCJP exam on 17-NOV-09, but still I haven't received the certificate yet. I have been following up with the sun certification support team. They have dispatched the certificate twice, but I haven't received any of them. I am from India.

Is everyone facing problems with receiving SUN certificate? Is there any better way to handle this situation?

If you took the exam through Prometric, go to their site, to verify your contact information. Otherwise, you can try to log into the Sun Certificate Database to find the cause of the problem. Also, in the Certificate Database, you can request Sun to send your SCJP credentials to anyone via e-mail.

Usually, it takes a month to receive a certificate.

Hi Larry,

Thanks for your response.

I have already verified the my mailing address at They have mailed me the certification THRIECE- But all the times, I haven't received the certificate. As I have provided my Oracle office address as the mailing address, I am sure that it hasn't missed at my end.

I dont understand why Sun can't take some more money from us and send the certificates via registered post, so that we can track the couriers.

As it has been 5 weeks now after they have sent the THIRD ceritificate, I am now puzzled what to do next? (already mailed to the mailing list)

Thanks & Regards,
I agree. Here's the link:
