Hello. I am a South African, born and bred, living in USA - I need to get Power of Attorney for my daughter in Johannesburg, as my bank account has been locked. How do I go about getting this, and what are the requirements??? Thank you. Your urgent attention would be appreciated.

My daughter Andra Elizabeth Hoole,had her passport stolen on New Years Eve. She was due to fly from Denver back to South Africa today, 11 February 2017. She has been corresponding the LA Consulate; had completed the necessary paperwork, and bad been assured she would receive her temporary /emergency passport by Friday. The passport never arrived and she will have to miss her flight back to South Africa. Please can you confirm that her passport is on her way to her so she can make the necessary flight changes. She needs to get back to university.

poor service and no accountability
No one seems in the least bit interested in the plight of others needing help at your consulate. No person at the end of the phone, you are redirected to the website . If the website was helpful then we would NOT need help from consulate in first place.

leaving monday still no paperwork
i have gotten through to an actual person twice now this week--after calling dozens of times. first person had no information for me at all. second person told me Wednesday that they were working on MOnday's departures but it's thursday afternoon now and my paperwork has still not been sent out. i am calling again tomorrow (friday) and telling them i am driving to los angeles to pick up my papers. goodbye to the $23 i wasted on a return envelope! i can't wait until monday to see if im going to get my papers delivered and i know they won't be working on them after noon tomorrow (friday). very frustrating!

cant get through to anyone either
emails are unanswered, phone calls do not go through. almost out of time to get temp visa paperwork back--sent in the end of December. Very frustrating! i realize the people doing this are probably very busy, but to leave people totally in the dark when your day of departure is quickly approaching is very stressful! there has to be a better way to handle this!
