Good morning,

I would like to know if I could apply for a ancestral Visa if my grandfather was born in the Netherlands? He moved to SA after world war 2.

I am currently 26 and obtain all my grandfathers documents like his Netherlands passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate, death certificate etc.

Would it at all be possible to get a Dutch visa?

Kind regards

Renew Dutch Passport
My passport expires in February 2016. I was born in Holland and am a non resident of South Africa. I have a permanent residency stamp in my passport.
Now that the Dutch Consulate is closed in Durban I need to know the procedure to renew my current passport. Do I have to make an appointment to renew.
If so I will need to book a flight to Cape Town.
Therefore I will need more details.

Good afternoon

I have been searching the web for answer but arenow more confused than ever.
1. I am a SA citizen, married, born in 1964. My farther is a Dutch ciziten and resides inHoevelaken(pension). He was born in the Netherlands, came to SA with his parents after World War 2. They went back to the Netherlands in the 90's were he worked for the Evangelishe Omroep and other institutions untill retirement at approx 72. He is now 76. Both him and my mother- now also a Dutch citizen- are still alive. I also have a brother and sister inthe Netherlands. Both obtained citizenship.

2. Will I be able to obtain perminent residence or citizenship for myself and my husband. If possible what is the application procedures.

1. Both my parents are frail. My farther is diagnosed with cancer and advanced MNS.
2. Myself and my husband has a registered business in SA (Ri Ri Foods) and feel that our skills as caterers and tourism guides may be of use.
3. My parents have 5 children...all born in SA. I am however the only one still in SA.

Due to the state of my parents health...distance from my family and feelings/fears of insecurity in SA both myself and my husband Douglas Wagner are weighing our options.

Currently we reside in Graskop, Mpumalanga.

Your assistànce will be greatly appreciated. Directing me to the correct persons or channels I should follow.

Kind regards
Riana Wagner

Passport Renewal
My passport expired 15.06.2014 I have an appointment to renew my passport in Cape Town, on the 28.04.2015. I am a permanent citizen of S.A. and have a stamp in my passport to confirm this. Do I need any further paperwork from Home Affairs to complete the renewal? I am travelling from P.E. and cannot afford not having the right paper work.
