Spouse Permit
I applied for a spouse permit on the 5th of June and no outcome yet. Its probably taking same as all others. For kids under 16 no police clearance and for kids under 12 no radiology needed. Only medicals certificates needed for kids under 12years. someone was saying they now require kids to apply for study permits and not accompanying permits. not sure for those kids not studying yet. And the study permits require proof of medical coverage in SA- medical aid

Accompanying spouse
Good day ladies and gentlemen. I have a quick question please assist if you can. My wife and Children need to apply for the accompanying spouse visa. First question is are there biometrics being done nowadays at vfs and also do the kids need to be there as well to do the application or my wife can just submit for both kids in their absence. Also to those who may long does this process take?

Thanks for your responses.

I doubt VFS is receiving these passports from the embassy in any chronological order, hence someone towards the end of march got while earlier March and late February guys are still pending for an outcome. The only way of knowing is when they contact you or anyone of the people that updates on this forum. VFS can't provide information on a possible date they will receive your passport as they don't drive that process.

Called VFS Bulawayo and I was told March outcomes are not yet out..... The lady said they are still on end of Feb...

VFS Bulawayo is useless.

Siyana navo. They will tell you a response that will make you not want to keep bothering them.

Just wait for your status update.
