Hello, I need to get a certified copy of my passport done as soon as possible. Would it be possible to get it done through the consulate? If not, could you advise as to where I could have this done?

Renewal of Passport
Dear Sir,

I wish to renew my passport, and flew to SA to do it. After waiting 2 days in ques i managed to get helped, however i was told my existing passport will be cancelled and it would take up to 14 days till i receive my new passport.

This meant that i could not renew my passport as i was returning to Bahrain the following day (i reside and work here in Bahrain with a valid Visa and work permit).

My passport expires in July 2018, however to travel it needs to be valid for a minimum of 6 months.

Can i apply for a renewal through SA Consulate, as i can come into your offices.

If so can you please let me know the following;

1) Documents needed to bring in with me.
2) Is Zamil Tower Government Avenue 17th floor correct address?
3) Days and times you are open (best time) to arrive there in person.
4) Can you send any forms needed to be completed in advance if required.

Yours Faithfully,

Brett Garvie
