well done South African Consulate
hi, i cannot praise the staff of the South African consulate enough. All staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful,
(and i am not a friend or family member- Namhla). Will recommend you use them if you have problems or queries. i suggest you just consider them as well. They are not at you beck and call. make an appointment (like any professional person) and their service will exceed your expectations. Thank you I appreciate your work.

Good Morning Sir

I am Maiyane Rupert Moleko from the Northern Cape in Warrenton. I would like to request your Office to assist me in verifying the authenticity of the programme called Kid Castle in Shanghai, China because my daughter who is currently doing her Hons Degree at Stellenbosch University has been recruited to take the opportunity.

I want to verify authenticity of this because I fear exposing her to criminal activities including Drugs and Human Trafficking. I promised her that I would seek information on this Project because she is really interested in taking up the offer.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Dont waste your time on this page
People... this page isnt a SA Gov page... its a page about embassies and questions wont be answered here. This comment section is about the embassy not to ask questions to the embassy.

Finger prints for a police clearance certificate.
I phoned the consulate and got through immediately. I spoke to Florence to ask her about the process of having finger prints done. She was very friendly and extremely helpful. She managed to get me an appointment for the next day. This is the best service I have ever received from any South African government office.

Expiring passport
I have been in China for 9 years. My passport will expire early next year. How does getting a new passport affect my visa which is in the current passport?

Birth Certificate
Hi, my 16 year old son and me are planning a trip to South Africa. I was told to bring his birth certificate as well. Is it o.k. to bring the original or does it have to be a certified copy. I do not have an english translation and the German Consulate can not help. Can you help me?
