@rue and csv
@ rue you have a serious issue there,before you think of visa solve that overstay issue and act now and if you have your passport there and you are continuing with the overstay thats another can deal with that when you get to the boarder and embassy.

CSV 2016/2017
Hi guys

Does anyone know how long it takes to get a CSV from Harare embassy these days considering they introduced Vfs in Dec 2016.

I submitted my application in December 2016 but upto now I haven't got any response from this Vfs.
if there is anyone who applied around that time who got their passports back. May they let me know please. I am in the dark now with this vfs thing. They dont know anything with respect to when to expect the outcome. They just promise to phone if they get sonething. Unexplained waits tend to be very very long and put everythingvon hold.

Thank you
got rejected

@ Ephraim

Download the 2014 June critical skills gazzette. There is no 2017 one.The latest immigration act was revised in 2014.

In terms of business,these are the occupations listed:

actuaries and risk assessors
external auditors
corporate general manager
financial investment adviser

If your occupation is one of the 4,you are eligible for CSV.

Turn around time.
The idea is to apply as soon as you can, there is no guarantee to those turnaround times that they quote. Target the end of April or earlier to avoid disappointment. Give yourself ample time so that should there be a query on your application you will be able to submit the documents required before your lectures commerce.

General work permit.
Im afraid thats a mammoth task that you are trying to undertake, Moreso the fact that you trying to apply as a domestic help and you are a 1st time applicant. I recommend you Peruse through the SA Immigration Act, it will enlighten you and possibly you will find another Type of visa suited for you.

There is a body called Indlela. Get a critical skills letter from them. You will use it to apply for CSV and your visa will be issued for one year with a condition that you obtain a South African trade test certificate within that year. There is a article online that explains this in more detail.
