Moving To SA
Hi Raju,

As you have received SA CSV Visa.. I believe you and your friend have moved to SA or are you guys in process of moving?
I would like to get in touch with all you guys who has already got CSV visa, so that we can share and discuss on the proceedings on moving to SA.

If I'm not wrong, I believe all you guys are IT professionals.

Let me know your thoughts.

CSV Processing
Hi Raju

Thanks a lot for the info.
Hope my visa as well processes at the earliest.

But the problem here is, we are unable to follow up the status from the consulate level or no proper response when contacted them. If that would have been in place, the whole process would have been very smooth and no confusions..

Dear Consulate,
I have a visa which valid till December 2016. But for each business visit, I can stay maximum of 15 days. Due to business needs and dependencies it is becoming difficult to manage with in those 15 days.
Is it possible to extend the number of days from 15 to 30 days per visit.
If yes, please tell me the procedure.
If no, explain me and how could I proceed further.

CSV visa processing
Thanks Pawan for the info.

I am aware of the minimum processing time of the CSV, but as I see in this thread that people are receiving the visa after 4 or 5 months and all... that's the reason I wanted to check on it...
