Got visa after 20 days
Hi All,

I applied for my moms visa on 10 March and received it today. So in my case it was late but did get before 10 days of her travel. I only emailed to the visa officers twice on wiidd@dirco.gov.za; mashabat@dirco.gov.za . Just be aware to plan atleast 40 days before travel to SA.

Visa Process Delay
its really crazy..applied for tourist visa on 3rd March 2014, still the status is 'under process'. sent several emails, email to the visa officer as well as but still no respite. guys, if you are considering going to South Africa for tourist purpose, please think thrice ..change your destination as they are in no mood to issue us a visa.

Regarding the submission of application
I am trying to submit the application by myself but I am not at all happy with the behavior of the people working in the office. As they want the PCC from the country where I lived more than 1 year but I visited the Saudi Embassey they are not giving any PCC. Now the people want that they should give this in writing that they are not issuing PCC, I don't know how I can get this from the Saudi Embassey.
