Ask/make your South African visa contributions here, i have seen increasing number of different threads about South African visa recently hence the need to dedicate one thread for South African visa issues.

Visa Expenses which include; visa fee, hotel booking and some other miscellanous. Quote me wrong if you think it's more than 60k and pls don't misunderstand my point.

@ all, I already got my Transcript from my university but what i have is the student's copy. On the transcript is a stamp stating STUDENT COPY, NOT FOR OFFICIAL USE. It is not addressed to any organisation or school. Will it be accepted by SAQA for evaluation? Ur kind and quick response will be appreciated.

Hello,

I have just been admitted for a Masters degree in UCT. I would like to know what I really need to present at the VFS office in order to apply for a Study Permit and what the financial implications may be.Though I have gone through the VFS website, I realise that there may be some requirement which may alo be necessary but may not be expressly stated there. Is the letter of admission from the school required because what I have is the offer letter sent by email to me by the Institution. If the letter of admission is sent to me via email, can it be used for this pupose.

Thanks.

VFS is just an Application and Collection centre, ready visas are returned to the Embassy 6 days( or so) after collection date.


Fogman:

Pls, when did your cousin apply? How often did you track it online? What day did you track it before and after the 'Friday' it was ready?

Visa or No visa if ready it will be returned to the embassy after 30 days of notice of collections without collecting it at the vfs ... so it doesn't mean that it is stamped visa that it has to be returned to the embassy....there could be visa on it and there could be refusal as well ...

Yours may not be acceptable though SAQA accept photocopy made from the original copy but yours is not official and it does not carry official stamp of your school, even if you send the original copy, SAQA will verify from your school/MOE for the authencity of such transcript/certificate.

I don't knw what is really goin on with my application at d embassy for d past 3 months. I applied for a tourist Visa which I submitted my Visa application 1st week Φƒ march and I am yet to receive a notice from VFS if my passport is ready for collection or not. What I used to do is tracking it online to knw d outcome. What I get each time I track it is " Still under accessment at d South africa High commission"

Can somebody tell me what might have been going on with my application? Besides, I filled my application that I would be travelling in April which has passed already.
