I’m running out of patience this will be the 9th week on Wednesday and nothing when I track it still says your application is under assessment at the abuja high commission. And then they’ve got no contact number that works

Teefab:

Wow!!! Did you track it?If yes what was the redponse you got.....

I still tracked it a few seconds ago and it says. . . . . . . . .

'Your application is received and under assessment at "The South Africa High Commission,Abuja".

I need to get my passport out.

Hello house, my dad is my sponsor for my study in S.A and he is using his company's account statement cos the account has a very goood cash flow and turnover.
My question is: Is he meant to state that he owns the company in the sponsorship letter he would write and does he have to submit any proof that he owns it??

I think you can just put a signed letter from the company saying they’re sponsoring you that’s what I did when I used a company account

I went to the embassy they said they have a backlog of applications so visas will only be issued from next or upper week and they also changed consulars so things are a bit slow .
Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Crews: 3:37pm On Nov 02
Good day all,

I am currently resident in Nigeria while i run a PhD program in South Africa as most of my research activities will be done in Nigeria. However, I wish to apply for South Africa study permit with the intention of staying for just one month as part of arrangement with my supervisor. It is important to mention that my program is fully funded by the University scholarship.

In view of this, I will be glad if any one could advise on the following:

1. Is it possible to provide medical cover for less than a year - may be six months?

2. Do i need to provide my statement of account to support my application in addition to my scholarship letter? Please note i have around 300k in my account

3. Will a letter of undertaking from the University that states that i have arranged a private accommodation suffice as proof of accommodation or do i need to get a letter from my supervisor to guarantee his willingness to assist with accommodation?

Hello everyone, I have been offered Claude Leon Foundation postdoctoral fellowship tenable at Nelson Mandela University, and would like to process my visa in Lagos. I did my study permit (2014) and renewal (2016) at Abuja embassy for my PhD programme at Rhodes. I need information on how to apply through Lagos embassy. The last permit renewal at Abuja wasn't good enough for me. Someone should help me with detailed information on how to go through Lagos embassy. Thank you.

Okay, thanks so much. Abuja wasted my time the last time I did my permit renewal with them.

In view of this, I will be glad if any one could advise on the following:

1. Is it possible to provide medical cover for less than a year - may be six months?

Answer: Yes. 6 months proof of medical Aid would suffice.


2. Do i need to provide my statement of account to support my application in addition to my scholarship letter? Please note i have around 300k in my account

Answer:Yes. It's only a standard procedure that you supply a bank statement. Your proof of scholarship should accompany that.

3. Will a letter of undertaking from the University that states that i have arranged a private accommodation suffice as proof of accommodation or do i need to get a letter from my supervisor to guarantee his willingness to assist with accommodation?

Answer:Yes. An undertaking from your institution attesting that you have a guaranteed accomodation will also suffice as proof of arranged accomodation. One advise, ensure specifically, that this letter comes from the Office of International Students of your instution. Because, that is part of their job.

Mr Chemashie congratulations on completing your Doctoral studies at Rhodes. The last time i recollext we chatted about living in Grahamstown.

Further felicitations on your Post-Doc award at Nelson Mandela Univ. I attended that University. And, i loved every moment there. If you need further assistance or contacts in that varsity, please let me know. A few of my friends hold various positions in that university.

Goodluck!
