Complete shambles
Website not working; phones and emails not answered; requests for information by mail with self addressed return envelope.... waste of time!
What are we supposed to do??
Complete shambles. Fat cats? Incompetence? Been trying to get information about renewing my passport for months
Shameless

Email bounces back and nobody answers the phone....
Congratulations South African Embassy....you are a true representation of the country....website is defunc, phones are unanswered and there is zero support when the world is in a pandemic. All we need is load shedding in Trafalgar Square and it will truly be a home from home.....this is such a depressing state of affairs...

claiming inheritance from SA
can anyone help me - we are trying to claim inheritance from my Dad who passed away in SA. We have filled out all the forms and had them all verified by a solicitor who is a notary public but SA say that's not good enough (even though all paperwork claim this is ok) and want the forms verified by a member of the embassy????? Can anyone help me - i can not get through on the phone

Urgent | Unabridged birth certificate and SA passport
Can anyone advise on the process to register a birth in SA? Unable to get any information, the website is non existent and no one answers the phones. Are these offices still in existence? Any help please?!

Gettign to South Africa
Please assitance utngenty required - HOW on earth do I get hold of South African embassy emails ignored or bounce back and phone just rings or get disconnected before answering, in the meantime my dad has very aggressive cancer and is passing away and my mom has to take care of him alone and I am helpless as a south African as I cannot get back to my own country - I am embarrassed and very very saddened about the lack of service from South Africa not to mention the server emotional stain on me and my family in an already very diffcult environement - I have been trying to get back since April and this know September !!

Passport services
The SA embassy has no interest in helping. The emails bounce back and there's no one to answer the calls or give advice.
