Renew my passport
Well I sent documents to renew my passport and have been require how far is my passport, two days ago I got an email stating that my left thumb is not clear enough and I need to redo my passport application and fingers print again, why could they told me that before hand, South Africa home also required a divorce certificate which paid for with my application for a renewal passport, I got told in an email that I must send registration mail to get my partner passport posted to me. I just can't believe that they take their time and always coming up with a different story every time.

Visa application Canberra
Hello South African High Commission Staff

I want to apply a tourist/temporary visa in South Africa but I just wondering if as a Colombian citizen with student visa in Australia could I have a visa appointment and apply for it at SAHC office in Canberra or I need apply from my country?

If I can get an appointment in Canberra, where or how can I get it?
If I have to apply from Colombia, how can I do it?

Thanks for your time!
