Need passport back urgently
Good day, I did a Visa application for the first time now, and I did not know that they will take my passport.

I realized today that I will need my passport to enter another country within 2 days from now.

Is there any way that I can get my passport back within one or 2 days?

British citizen held up at Oliver Tambo for 2 days to pay ZAR5000 because he does not have a yellow card!!!
Good Day, UK citizen Frank Morris has now been held for 2 days at Oliver Tambo (tel nr: 0603944565). He is on his way to his friend Deirdre Wilson in the Western Cape (0725683493). It seems when the immigration or customs official learnt that he is on his way to the Western Cape, he was asked for his yellow card (yellow fever injection) or asked to pay R5000. Please can somebody look into this urgently? The man is very distraught.

holding money at airport
Does anyone know if you have to hold money to leave South-Africa? Someone I meet on chat and is currently in Johannesburg and wanted to leave the country but couldn't because he didn't have money. The customer officer said that he had to have 500 euro. I don't know if that friend is telling the truth or tries to scam me. Thanks

confusion regarding passport application for my daughter
I was separated from my wife and daughter whilst living in the United Kingdom. My wife returned to South Africa with my daughter... My wife died. And I came to collect her, as the highcourt both in South Africa and the Highcourt in United Kingdom has agreed to place my child with me. I'm now sitting in South Africa with no passport for my daughter as the Passport office in Uk now feels my daughter does not qualify for a British passport, even though I applied for her passport 27/2/2015 and at that time I did a check and send, and was not made aware of this situation, I have as yet not had any emails or contact with the Passport office, only with the high commission in South Africa. I'm pleading for help... As my funds are running out and I have nowhere to stay with my daughter in South Africa, my home is in the UK!!
