Ang galing gumawa ng mga positive comments.. at mukhang impossible naman at kabaligtaran ang mga sinasabing magaganda tungkol sa embassy. Don't believe them... Gawa Gawa Lang nila agency lang ang ginagawan ng visa.... halata naman.. may makukuha kayo sa kanila . Yung mga taong kumpleto requirements ayaw. Nyo bigyan.

IF YOU WANT RESPECT YOU SHOUL RESPECT YOUR APPLICANT
What a attitude of those staff in Manila, they are Filipino too but they are not treating their kababayan nicely, sorry to say but they are so rude and unhelpful. Am here in Southern africa, the staff are most helpful for step by step,they give you advise for each requirements you need it, but its big difference to Manila staff...Im so sad to say this but its true. S.A Manila embassy you should show your respect and good service to your kababayan, not only to foreigner or someone else that you know they are high class...change system...

All I can say is all the negative comments here are true. I've experienced everything that you've shared about the embassy.From the phone calls, emails and the attitude of the staffs and even to asks questions ..they don't like to answer. So what's the purpose why they're working in the embassy if they will not assist us and help us? So embarrassing because I'm a filipino too. I pitied those people who went to the embassy for how many times bec they would say..will call you...not yet done...will get back to you..so on and so forth.What's the purpose of giving us the schedule?So pathetic.If you will show to them that your mad etc..they would say that your rude or no respect...hahhahahaha .They will not get respect unless they will show respect to the applicants.Very unprofessional!!!!!And whoever posting good comments about the embassy...you are FAKE and LIAR!!!

VISAS to South Africa for The Phillipines Passport holders
Hi, how long does it take for visa application if you are from The Phillipines and holding a The Phillipines passport.
How much does it cost to apply for the visa?
Where are the office?Are they in Manila?

I apologize for our embassy
Not that it is of any consolation, but I apologize for our useless embassy. Please believe me that not all South Africans are as useless as these people and not as unfriendly.
South African Rainbow Nation are a wonderful, loving and caring community which the staff in our Manila embassy are certainly not a part of, and in fact their attitude and office ethics is a disgrace to our lovely country. I am so ashamed of them as are most expats here!

LUNCH?
at 4:29 the phone was answered again and left off the hook? I can hear the lady talking about "lunch with Ryan"??????? and the phone was put down again what kind of service is this?
I can not believe this is the kind of service that I received!
Especially when I can hear her talking to someone about having lunch!
I have the Right to be spoken to with respect and to be treated with respect!
nobody replies to my emails and I cant even receive information from the embassy via the telephone?
I would like each and every one of you to put yourself in my shoes..
It has been so long since I have seen my Fiance...how would you feel if you were stripped from the people you care about?
Please could someone get back to me and let me know what I need to do so I can be with Mary again..
You have the power to change someones life..or destroy it..
Please could you reply ASAP.

I still cant believe the service my fiance and I have received from this embassy in the last 6 months..Its a real shame that they represent our rainbow nation..
