Longer stay with work approval to work in Germany
My life time partner passed away last year August. We were going to get married January 2018. He is a born German. I am well known with family in Germany . His wish to his daughter before he died was to see that me and my daughter 18 years live in Germany.Me and my daughter visit the family for 3 months November to January 2018. I do speak and understand little Deutsche. Me and my daughter also attended the German Kindergarden for German lessons in Hanerau Hadermaschen.
Please advise how I or the family could motivate me staying in Germany.
Kind regards

Our whole family had biometrics and fingerprints taken for our last trip to Germany in October 2014. I see on the website that we do not need to submit our visa applications in person if biometrics were done within 59 months. My question now is, can I submit our applications directly to the German Consulate in Cape Town or Pretoria with a courier? And if so, do I just address it to the Visa department?

My question whether I could enter Germany with a Shengen visa valid till 16-06-2018 issued by the Belgian consulate in Cape Town was answered promptly and in a very friendly way. The answer was Yes!

Vielen Dank!

The insensitive manner in which visa applications are handled
I am appalled with how quickly and uninformative things change with regard to south africans wanting to visit germany. My lifetime partner (a German Citizen) passed away 3 weeks ago. And because I am self-employed now only do they want a CR number from SARS which is still pending since registration and was never required all the 8 times I have been to Germany with my late partner. Not only that, also the manner in which the lady at 80 Strand Street conducted the entire affair was heartless and in a manner of I-couldnt-give-a-flying-cahoots attitude. I never overstayed my welcome, was never involved with illegal activities but feel like being treated as a criminal now that I am applying for a visa without my late partner. I have a business to run after my return from germany since now that the apartment and everything else is on my name. I am extremely traumatized by the entire affair and quite scared to attend my visa application appointment tomorrow morning in the fear that they will reject it.

Hello. My husband and I have been trying to get his German pension sorted for the last few year of so. He is 76 years old and until a few years ago was able to work until he had a stroke and not able to put in a full days work anymore. Please advise in how to go about applying for a German pension here in South Africa. He is still a citizen of Germany and has worked and lived in German.
