Visa application in Durban
Is there a place in Durban where I can apply for a visa!

Trying to get someone to answer the phone for an appointment in Westvville Durban is just impossible. This is most frustrating as how are you as an expatriate living in South Africa Pietermaritzburg supposed to get anything done, when there is not even anyone there to answer the phone, so as to make an appiontment.

Fustrated in Durban

Unavailability of staff
Dealing with the consulate in Durban lately have become very fustrating , trying to get someone to speak to is virtually impossible , e-mail requests for appointments is ignored .

The latest is that the Durban consulate will not accept any more bookings since a new electronic system will be implemented from the 1st of June , obviously we now sit with a backlog of a few weeks and coming 1 June I predict the system will be fully booked for more than a month , many many applicants will not get their Visa's in time to fly .

Obviously the consultae is just shrugging it's sholders , so much for supporting tourism to the Netherlands !

No choice but to book an appointment in Pretoria and fly up to Pretoria !!!

visa info
Hi, i am getting my spousal visa for the UK and would like to know if I can enter the Netherlands with this or do I need to get a Shengen visa from South Africa which is my home country. My spousal visa gives me entry into the UK for 2 years until my leave to remain is through.

My husband and I have been fortunate enough to have travelled quite a bit. Being on an SA passport, we have had to apply for Visa's for almost every trip.
I would like to say the Dutch Embassey has been the most pleasant, fiendly and helpful of the lot.
Much appreciated.
