@Hayley... I submitted my application around the end of November, and have still received no word. I don’t know what’s taking so long.

Hi. Is there anyone who received an outcome from VFS Harare recently. If yes, when did you apply?
I submitted my application early December and havent seen any progress on the tracking system yet.

I do not think its right that the embassy keep our passports for more than two years. i've found these emails addresses on home affairs website. Lest flood their emails requesting answers!

This means the passport can expire while it is still at the embassy.

And VFS is not helpful either as they only check on the online Tracking system and advise you what you already know.
Is there any other way to follow up on an application apart from calling or emailing VFS?

I have a February application that is still pending with the Embassy. Is there anyone from the same time period who is still awaiting their outcome also?
