childrens travel documentation
Hi. I have sent emails and I have rang the embassy several times. No Reply. I am hoping to get a reply with this. I will be travelling to South Africa with my two daughters who are on dual passports(Irish and South African) Do we still need to travel with the unabridged birth cert, avidavit and the forms that accompany it.

Need to leave!
I'm a South African citizen currently visiting Ireland, my return date is the 28th of December.. Sadly a family emergency has come up and I need to get home ASAP, I can't seem to find any helpful information regarding flight changes on the airline website (I'm flying with Emirates) so I'm kind of stuck.. Any advice?

Jamela Phakula
My Passport is full and we are travelling abroad in April 2018. My renewal application was already submitted in December 2017. I am trying to locate Me Jamela Phakula, working with SA Passports in Pretoria SA. Is this perhaps the same Jamela Phakula complaining about crazy service?? Go figure perhaps? Does anyone have a contact for Jamela, as she does not reply to e-mails...

SA Embassy in Ireland Most Efficient
I cannot understand the comments on this page relating to the Embassy. Please read the information on the top of this page. Communicate visa the emails listed above. This is NOT an official page it is also NOT run by the embassy or checked by the embassy.
There are some very insulting comments on here and online is not the place to slander and bully people and I find it hard to believe you dealt with the same people I did. My experience was so pleasant and efficient.
Please do not publically insult people online where they cannot defend or explain themselves.
