Incorrect Telephone number on this website
It might help if the person who created this website posted the correct details for the embassy.

Have not checked the mails but the telephone number should be (010) 8 532.0000 not (010) 6 532.0000
Also just phoned now and they picked up within 30 seconds

South African government service as pathetic in China as it is in South Africa!!
I haven't tried to contact the SA embassy in Beijing for about one year. It's something I hate doing because it's a massive headache! They are useless, don't answer phones, emails bounce back and postmaster says "undeliverable". Today, I tried again, flashbacks to last year...nothing has changed! Cannot get through to them, telephone numbers are out of use, emails undeliverable.

I'm South African, sad to say, and on days like this...I remember what made me leave the place. They are lazy, lazy, lazy....that's all! Lazy and inept. It wasn't always like this...just in the last 20 years it started to decline.

Shame on you
There are no South African mission representatives in Beijing , people are there for their own mission. We are on our own .

Contact the SA embassy in Beijing is the same as you contact a dead person, what a waste of time, phone never get answered and email send back postmaster. The SA embassy employees are only there for a jolly time and steeling tax payers money. SA Govt. must start think about purchase a few Robots they will do a much better job.

South African Embassy, China
What a waste of time. I have sent 3 different emails to Beijing and Shanghai. Postmaster returned emails saying email address does not exist.

More contact info for South African Embassy in Beijing
Name in Chinese:

I have the correct email addresses but they do not reply....

Nearest subway stop is Agricultural Exibition Centre, exit the subway station and turn right. The Agricultural Exibition Centre will be on your left. Cross the road at the intersection and walk down Dongzimen (about 200m) South African Embassy is on your right.

Hopeless telephone and email contacts
I wish to endorse what the other comments say about the inaccessibilty of our embassy in Beijing. The telephone numbers are eithe ever answered or they are obsolete. As for the email addresses, it seem they do not exist at all. Very disappointed.
