Hi, I'm a currently a student studying in Cape Town. My bank account in Botswana has been frozen pending an update of my personal details. This include a valid ID, of which, mine is expired. Am I able to apply for a renewal at the Embassy? If not, then is there nothing the embassy could do in order to aid me in this matter? Without access to my account I am without money in a foreign country.
