Hi Lisa
You would rather go there in person if you are in Zimbabwe. You will never get an answer on their phones.
Their service is pathetic.

Hi
I agree with mlungisi. There are actually more problems than the ones you mentioned, people are forced to cross illegally into RSA, spouses my and up cheating, some officers at the SA embassy my ask for bribe to speed up the processing of visas. Some rogue elements(criminals) will pounce on innocent applicants pretending to work hand in with embassy officials. So really this has many sad effects. I feel sorry for the innocent applicants who are facing such stressful conditions. May God bless the staff at SA embassy as well as the applicants.

Dear Sir/ Madam
You guys need to conduct a survey with the employers and visa applicants to find out how much damage and suffering you are causing. You seem to but heart less. Spouses are separated for lengthy periods, employers are having to do without certain personnel who maybe waiting for their permits. Imagine loss of production loss income to SARS (government). You just need to the logically and do a bit of calculation to find out how much damage you are causing. Please do something about this chaos.

Dear Sirs
Is there any senior official who can please address the visa applicants the reason why it is taking so long to process the above mentioned visas? As the general public we really need to know why its taking more than 3 months to process the permits. Yet under normal circumstances it takes upto 8 weeks. Are there any measures being put in place to address the situation? Why not computerise the system and have the application done online? Instead of having applicants come to your offices to check every Monday and Wednesday, rather send an sms or email

Dear Sir
If you are taking for ever to process visas you are failing a lit of people. The business people or investors will eventually get frustrated and may even shut and go. You are not "fixing" just a few individuals but this does have an effect on the economy of the republic. It may sound small but its not. One needs to sit down do some calculation and find out how much one employee would contribute as tax. And much production time is lost when a worker spends on average 4 months in Zimbabwe waiting for a visa. If you count the total number of applicants the production time will amount to a number of years lost. And how much will that amount to in monetary terms. Please review your operations think about customer services and customer care. A lot of people are stressed by your the way you work

Dear Angela

I went to the embassy today and they have processed up to 11 February and it seems like processing time is now 3 months due to high number of applications.So if you applied early Feb you should go check it at the embassy it must be out.
