Calls not answer
Hi there

Cant get through via email or telephone number a total disgrace
Can anyone help? I cannot get through, the Embassy phone is never answered
Even the telephone numbers on the website and email addresses do not work.
Phones cut out... what is going on?
What are we supposed to do to renew a passport urgently?

Why does the South African High Commission write a contact number when there's never anybody answering it? Just shut that office and go back home. This is not how you represent us. Shambles!
