Family separation
Am a south African lady married to a Kenyan man. He has been in Kenya for over 2months now waiting for the outcome of his visa. We have 2 girls aged 1 and 3. I just wanted to state that the period the embassy takes to process the visas is too long and it depresses both my husband and I and the children. It's like we are being punished. Health wise am not well and I don't know who will look after the kids should something happen to me. Pls be a little faster especially if u have proof that a person has a family. Don't separate families for this long. I hope something changes

Medical purpose
I really feel deprived of my world health right by south Africa embassy.
I've provided report from my neurologist assuring them I need further Check up. Dr from Durban wrote letter for invitation for treatment which I gave too.
I've given other required documents but all in vain.
Is someone health bona fide reason?

Uncertain BONAFIDE
Good morning,
Am an athlete and I got an opportunity to participate in a marathon in Johannesburg.
I submitted all the required documents for my visa application on 24th July,and on 1st August I was called for interview again.
On 4th I received my decision and It read" Rejected:Uncertain BONAFIDE visit to RSA.
I cant really understand why.
I've appealed in vain.

Dear Sir/madam,

My name is Samuel W. Kinyanjui. I applied for a visa on 02/08/2017 in Nairobi-Application Ref. No SANA/020817/0003/01. According to the receipt I got, the visa processing takes 5 days and I have not received any feedback from your office. While I am aware about what has been happening in Kenya, I would like to let you know that I require to use my passport to travel on Wednesday evening. I am kindly requesting that you do anything possible to fast track the process so that I collect the passport latest tomorrow afternoon.
