Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by dpee4real(m): 8:14pm On Dec 18, 2012
dpee4real: hello house,
I had earlier posted my experience with study permit application on Nov. 19 at d lagos consulate(cheq pg 8 of this thread). I was askd 2 present a saqa evaluation which i KNOW is NOT needed 4 SA study permit. Afta my experience in lagos i made up my mind to head to abj despite claims on this thread that requirements are the same. Well,d truth is,they are not and in fact, saqa is not a requirement for study permit like i sd. Afta my lagos experience,i mailed my sch requesting 4a copy of d saqa report dy used to assess my qualification telling them my need 4 it. D response ws dt 'home affairs dept doesn't require it and dt d embassy officials probably does not know wt is required.' i did my own info seach online and challenge evry1 to independently do same,their is nothing of such as requirement 4 SA Study permit.
I hv submited my aplicatn&paid at d abj office on d 26th and d attendant neva demanded 4 it 4m evry1 who did along side.
D saqa stuff is quite controversial and i strongly blive d embassy officials in lagos are being unecessarily difficult,4m d gatemen,police and d embassy staff. D goodnews is abj is stress free,4m d gate&beyond(no police&d security men were friendly unlike lag).
Dy have a new office opp EU Commission at cenral area(around The Dome and National Hospital).time 4 study permit is btw 11am-12pm 4 aplicatn&enquiries,3pm 4 collection. U can give it a trial if getting saqa is a problem 4 wateva reasons bt u shuld use an abj or northern addres on d applicatn form,if nt dy culd send u to lag by claiming abj office is 4 pple living in d north.its worth. Peace!

I obtained my visa 2day. Exactly 3wks. 4m my experience,abj is less demanding than lag.generally,if u meet d requirements 4 sa visa,i bliv u'l surely get it. Cheers

Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by teetee123(f): 11:21pm On Dec 20, 2012
Thanks be to God, got my study permit today at SAHA,Abuja.
I appreciate u guys, @ collinsfbi et al.
Got most of my information from this thread and friends in SA.
3 Gboosa for SA thread .
@dpeereal, thanks for replying last night. Your reply made me take a flight today and fortunately got my permit. I submitted on Nov. 13, issued on Dec. 14 , collected on Dec. 20.

Many applicants who submitted since October/Nov were really agitated when they couldn't get their passports back since the embassy is closing for holiday fro 21 Dec to 2 Jan. The applicants were not given any concrete reasons for the delay.
My observation was that most of them were given admission to schools that were not highly rated and do not have SAQA evaluation cert. This may be the reason for the delay( my thought)

My guys don't give up. Get right information, submit correct documents and prayer hard.

I think you can still make it with the following prices though it's advisable to use arik if you have much luggage but South African Airways is the best in terms of time management. Arik:N100,891.00, SA:USD 652.57 (103,106.06 *N158) Lagos - Jo'burg, SA:USD 892.92 (141,081.36 *N158) Lagos - Cape Town.
