To Pawan sir
Dear Sir

I applied for CSV on DEC-13-2016. So what should I do now? What is the best time I can expect my CSV?

Dear Applicants

@Mr. Rajesh Kumar Verma

As per your query you have applied a tourist visa for south Africa along with your wife.
There is no need to submit your wife's financial documents if she is House wife ,you can submit your proper financial documents e.g. last 3 months bank statements ,salary slip and any other saving .
You can sponsor your spouse visa .

In case embassy will ask any other documents,you can submit a self supporting sponsor letter for her visa .


AS Per your query your visa got rejected due to insufficient documents.
"Failure to provide proof of relationship between Indian and South African Company."

It will be better if you can reapply your visa as reappear processing time is more than 4-5 months .
For the documentation you can contact me .

@ Amol

Mr. Amol you can submit a request letter to in the VFS for fast processing.

In case should you have any other queries feel free to contact me .

SA Visa
I live in Mangalore.
I submitted visa applications for self & wife at VFS in Goa on 8th February. ( Ref No; GOAC/080217/0001/01 & 02)
Our flight is at 0300 hrs from Bangalore. Train from Mangalore to Bangalore is at 1045 hrs on 28th Feb.
On 9th Feb, our applications have been submitted at Mumbai consulate as per SMS update from VFS. There were no further updates; so, I contacted VFS from 20th Feb onwards. On 22 Feb, I was informed that some comments on wife's bank statement. Immediately, I submitted another one as per the advice of VFS executive. This information could have been given to me by the consulate 10 days ago.
In any case, my wife is a housewife and her bank statement can not have frequent entries in her account although the balance shown is more than 21K.
We have already submitted the proof of our flight and hotel bookings.
As the situation stands, I am not aware of the status. VFS says they communicated fresh bank statement to consulate and grant of visa is not their domain. When contacted the consulate, they say "check with VFS'. A huge amount of money has been spent by us as advances for hotel bookings as well as business class airfare. Cancellations would cause heavy financial loss to us.
The routine type & insensitive approach from VFS troubling me.
Request to Consulate- Please take immediate action and communicate. If visa not granted and despatched today, I shall not get it by Monday(27th Feb) and we can not set out for our family trip to SAfrica.
Please communicate.
