Police Clearance Certificate
Hi there, I am in the process of applying for a PR in SA, and require a police clearance report from Botswana. Is there a way that I can take the fingerprints here in Cape Town and get the report, without having to visit Botswana to do so?

My husband, an Indian citizen, but with permanent residence in SA, and I (South African) want to visit Botswana. I have printed out his form from the internet, but where can we submit his forms in Cape Town? The contact nr listed does not work. Do you have an arrangement with a vfs office?

Temporary Residence Query
Good day,

I am a freelance software engineer, who has a remote contract with a South African digital leadership company. I work remotely and occasionally fly to JHB for on site business.

As I work remotely, I would love to discover Botswana, and I was wondering that since I have a job where I can be anywhere, whether it would be possible to get a temporary resident permit, to stay in Botswana for the period of my contract (12 Months)?

Thank you, looking forward to hearing whether this is possible.

Kind regards

Transit Visa to Botswana
I am a retired Egyptian engineer making a trip to Africa together with my two sisters. We got visa of South Africa and Zimbabwe. We love to visit Chobe NP but we don't have visa because Botswana has no embassy in Egypt and tried to contact any embassy of Botswana in any country near Egypt but always got negative responds. Can we get a transit visa by any means ? ready to send copies of our passports and copies of visas of South Africa and Zimbabwe if this will help. We will be in Cape Town June 29th for 4 days and will be in Victoria Falls about July 8th .
