Critical Skills visa
Its so painful, stressful and annoying to go and queue at your offices every Monday and Wednesday, why don't you send people SMS's or emails when the visa is ready for collection. Some people stay far away and to make matters worse one will come to check regularly over a very long period some will come over a period of three months (every Monday and Wednesday). The phone is not answered, emails are not responded to. There no ablution facilities for those waiting outside, no shelter. Please be considerate you are ill-treating people. Can you speed up the application process.

Critical skills/workers permit
Dear Sir
You are discouraging investors by the time you take to process visas. I have a friend of mine who applied for a critical skills visa, he is supposed to go to SA to connect a machine and set up a production line. The employer is still waiting for the machine to be connected before he can start production. He is losing millions of rands per month as a result the government is also losing. Local South Africans who were supposed to operate that machine are sitting at home all because of your inefficiency. Why don't you try to computerise your system and speed up your processing time. How is that investor feeling? He is paying for the storage of the machine and he may lose potential clients. He may not be the only one whom you are frustrating, Please try to respond to your clients suggestions. By delaying one critical skills applicant, you will create many more problems down the line. The same person is supposed to be paying tax to SARS.

Visa(general /critical skills
Dear sir /madam
You should treat each application according to its own merit. A permit renewal should be treated differently from a new application. In this case,the person already has a job therefore time is to be considered. A person cannot be away from work for 4 months. This will have a negative effect to the economy. Why not give the people there passports back while you process the permit and send them emails or sms when permit is ready for collection. Some people stay far from Harare. It's therefore costly for them to come to Harare every Monday and Wednesday to check. Withholding an individual's passport is restricting the individual someone may want to travel to other countries regionally or abroad.

Subject: immigration of a newly born baby
My wife gave birth to a baby while she was visiting in South Africa. She needs to travel back to Zimbabwe where the baby will be registered as a Zimbabwean citizen.

I need to know the documentation and procedures which may be needed in order for the mother to cross the borders with the newly born baby.

general,critical skills,accompanying spouse visas
Hi
Is it possible for you to recruit some of work permit applicants to help in processing the visas? I am sure some of them may even volunteer there services, you can just train them. Because the process is taking forever. Some of the applicants have spouses ir even family in the RSA some are already working, they just came to renew the permits. Please try to speed up your application process.
