Shocking Service
Good day, I am a South African citizen and invited a Afghan national to visit me in South Africa. He had to wait nearly 2 weeks before he heard from the High Commission for an interview. He had this interview, and he has to wait even longer for the visa that was approved. The personnel at the Commision also knew that the week-end of 19 September 2019 is a long weekend but still they did not process the visa. This is nearly 3 weeks that he has been waiting for his visa. He is not able to travel back to Afghanistan as you are in possession of his passport, he has to fit hotel bills and take time off work. His flight is on 26 September, but still no visa. He needs to prepare for his trip, that now will have to be cut by half due to you not being able to process this visa. I happened to work in a SA Embassy in the Ivory Coast, so I am totally aware of the complete process. Your actions are very negative for our country, and by not auctioning the process faster, will definitely have a negative impact on our tourism. The turnaround time is just ridiculous. No one at the embassy answers telephone calls or emails, and this is even more disturbing. Be sure to know that I will elevate this situation until I get a satisfactory response. You are supposed to serve people. Furthermore, he is not able to book a return ticket to KAbul due to not having dates to travel as you are having his passport. All of this is just not acceptable. I am ashamed of the South African High Commission in Islamabad being a fellow South African.

Contact detail of High Commission of South Africa Islamabad
I submitted application for critical skill work visa at VFS(Gerry's visa application center Karachi) on 24 July, 2018. It is almost 46 days gone but no information received on it. I have called Gerry's office several time they just informed my application is in process and avg. processing time is 20-25 working days for long term visa.

Can somebody provide me new contact detail of SA embassy in Islamabad as embassy has relocated??

Can I personally visit SA embassy Islamabad to know about the status of my application?? can somebody help me in this regard?
