Welcome to Africa
All too often I am reminded why I left South Africa. Readng through the commentry here I am not suprised. They are apathetic, lazy, incompetent and simply don't give a damn.
No suprises I'm afriad but there you go - Thats South Africa

Richard traut
I was also fooled by those same emails from Richard thinking it was real and sent my personal details which was a stupid mistake and I mentioned that I could not afford to pay the fees for the south African bank to release the money into my NZ account, poor persons name he used with my last name added to it.
He even assisted me in what to type in my email besides come up with a sad story about his unwell wife.

Passport ReNewal
I apply for my passport nearly 9 months ago. After one story to another I have finally been told (from SA side) that my passport has been sent back 20th February to NZ. I have been trying for not only months before this but again in the past 3 weeks to try and get through by calling & emailing to get no answer!
Please will someone get back to me on the status as I have booked a trip and need this matter sorted.

Is there anybody that can help me with getting an unabridged birth certificate issued?

I've sent my application in October 2016 and have sent 21 follow up emails (none replied) and have made several telephone calls (none answered).

I am applying for my NZ Residence and cannot proceed without it. Is there anybody that can help. PLEASE?!

Passport renewal
I have been trying for three months now calling emailing and yet I get nothing back no.awnser!
I wait on the phone for 2- 4 min then it cuts off.
One day I tried the entire day phone calling and not one awnser pickup over 200 times. This is not service it's complete station abortion. They get paid to sit and do noting now and enjoy the fruits of doing nothing.
While others have no way of communication. Time for police or NZ government should step in.
