Shelby, there is no defense at all, respect is a two way traffic. I have been in contact with those staff members and i was never disrespected. If you respect , you will definitely get that in return. That Embassy is still welcoming as compared to other embassies where the security guards will throw you out if you do not cooperate. See Shelby, people must just comply and stop being on the defensive side like you if they do not qualify to travel to South Africa......

Fired Leila and Stephane
Leila Stephane they should be fired, Leila how can you treat your own people in such a disgusting manner, have you forgotten where you are from, have respect and there would not be so many bad comments regarding you, l bet my wages there will a positive comment about her, bec she will write one for herself, DO YOUR JOB, because you work in a Embassy don't believe you are above everyone, there is your people with little money trying to better themselves have a heart and help them with respect don't look down your nose to them. And Stephane he is just useless - knows nothing and is power crazy, you are a disgrace to your country full stop, l hope one day you are treated the same as you treat others, go home, get behind a desk in a government office, where you done interact with people, take a salary and be quiet it would be better for the world and your country

I think people complaining in this site were NOT talking about the Visa... it is about the people in the embassy. the people who were supposed to treat applicants with respect. the staff who only care if THEY are respected and do NOT care about the applicants.

READ the complains, don't set a defense right away.. ;)

I think if people are guilty conscious for taking a chance, they will always post this negative comments. I completely support you Lee Ann, if you comply you will get a visa. I applied without using any travel agency and I got my visa.Maybe people forget that Visa is not a right but a privilege. As regular traveler, most Embassies are strict and I don't see any problem if the SA Embassy is strict by screening who must enter South Africa.

ATTENTION complainants!
Pls. contact the people in the Dept. of Home Affairs online for your complaints as they will be listening to your own story of experience in the SA embassy in Manila and will look through this matter.

Some puppets can cover up your stories in this site so it will be better if you share your own BAD experience to the right people who will pay attention to this matter.

find the people to contact and complain to in

I've already sent an email to one of the biggest Newspapers in South Africa about this unprofessionalism to let everyone know how HORRIBLE this SA embassy in Philippines is. Now, I would also send an email to the higher authorities.

I hope, by putting this onto the papers and by sending the higher authorities an email, they would take notice of this matter and hope they will not tolerate these power-maniac, unprofessional people in the Philippine's SA embassy for people's sake!

hope they will have the balls to do something about this.
