Children's passport pictures
We have recently experienced a problem traveling back fron Germany to Cape Town. The Clark at the passport control desk advised that our children's photos in their German passports does not look like them as they are a lot older than in the pictures. Both of children's passports are still valid and are only expiring in a year or two. We are now traveling to Hamburg in December and am worried that we might experience the same problem. The Clark advised that the picture can be changed without having to apply for a new passport. He also advised that he can refuse entry because of this situation. Can you please shed more light on this problem and advise the way forward.
Thank you.

Good day,

My daughter is going with her school in June to Germany. She is 18 years old and in possession of a valid South African passport.

receptionist counter number 1
i came to make an inquiry at triangle building capetown floor no 19 german embassy. what i got from the german lady working at counter number 1 was hell. this lady attacked me with words and i believe its a racial attack. this are the kind of people we dont need in africa. they are enemy of progress. if she is not willing to help african she might aswell go back to her home country. i was so offended by this so called person. i have opened a case for investigation against her and i hope she deal with the consequences. thanks to my samsung gear watch i had to record the conversation. we don't support racism in africa.
thank you
