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.

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.

thank you SA Embassy for your professionalism!!!
My visa was expedited in time and I was treated with so much respect by members of that Embassy. I also beg to differ with all of you. Just get all your requirements in order and you will get a visa if you qualifies.

All negatives comments are true. I've seen it and experienced too. they will approved your visa if you are from the travel agency. Tthey're very fast and on time . 5 days!!!!! people from the embassy are not professional too.. very funny the way they would tell you that your papers are not complete .. and some people. were shocked when they were not informed that they have to give 35 thousand pesos for the bond..and they have to fly the next day .. Poor people !!!!!

follow up on my first comment
I just got my refund from the south african embassy and would like to thank for the very fast processing of it, guys i also had a not so very good experience when i processed my visa to go to south africa for the first time but it was all due to the fact that thr agency we went to didnt follow what requirements were needed, instead of complaining about it just do what is asked of u then u will see that u wouldnt have any problems at all...

I took a friend of mine into the Embassy he is from your beautiful country, a Zulu from Durban, l was trying to apply for a visa it was my third time he told the embassy he would sponsors me so l could be his best man at his wedding, he was treat like rubbish, in the end we walked out - he was disgusted he wrote to a newspaper in SA, waiting for a reply l think if enough South Africans complained maybe something would be done, anyway l missed the wedding to cut a long story short, and the guy stephane who was meant to help us, goes home and sleeps well every night, know he F@&K up someone's day
