In Zimbabwe we have women from South Africa who are married to Zimbabweans sand Home affairs of Zimbabwe don't give them trouble why does South Africa make it difficult for Zimbabweans married to South Africans they treat us like criminals if you have a marriage certificate why all the denial to stay with your husband even if you have no all the requirements cam someone explain please

Rude employees, understaffed embassy and an overall embarrassment!
I have applied for my study visa for South Africa and over the last two weeks have tried desperately to quicken the process with letters to the embassy from myself and my university. Today marks the fourth week of lectures that I have missed due to the wait for my visa. I went in to once again plead my case and try to make some head way only to get to the front of the queue where Grace Sekgotse looked at me, recognised me from the previous day and said (I quote) "I am ignoring you, next."

If this is one the very few people that the embassy is proud to have behind their counters in Zimbabwe then that is disgraceful! With only three counters BARELY being operated and no assistance given when the opportunity comes then I am thoroughly embarrassed for both my country and South Africa! It is now the end of February, the back log should have been dealt with my now or more employees brought on to counter the problem.

I feel sorry for all the people who have encountered this place that is not fit to even be called an institution. There are more tea parties happening there than actual work.

Wow! I have friends and family from Zim and it is so annoying having to see them suffer soo much. It's just a visa. people want to study and work to better their lives but the south African government is not being fair. South African government is greedy and selfish. its sad to know that when SA was under apartheid oppression Zimbabwe helped SA so much as they would settle In Bulawayo. Now that Zimbabweans need to come to SA they are being slow like they own Africa. They just don't care if Other students are suffering and classes are starting. This is not fair. I hope the exact same thing they do happens to their children so that they may suffer like the embassy workers are doing. imagine having to let go of your dream of studying or working just because of selfishness. no its not fair. what happened to UBUNTU? as Africans we keep bringing each other down. We don't lift each other up!! To all the guys waiting on their Visas don't stop praying guys. God is with you he sees the suffering you're going through. .

SA Immigration requirements
I would like to seek clarity from anyone who knows, whether Zimbabwean citizens are still illegible to enter the Republic, without having to first apply for a visitors visa at the South African embassy?

I can see from all the above comments that the SA Embassy in Zimbabwe is doing all it can to deny Zimbabweans entering into SA.HON.Gigaba said ZSP permits will not be renewed. One needs to apply for a permit in Zim after DEC.2017, It means all Zimbabweans on ZSP PERMITS will no longer be able to go back & work in SA because the permits will never be processed. People would rather start going back the old route- ASYLUM.
OR ALWAYS PAY SAPS bribe to avoid deportation
