For real.....

justwise:


Just imagine what will happen if South African embassy is alerted about what is going on here? Any Nigerian that works there will be a suspect.

Hi everyone, I just received a call from someone in the high commission

VO: Hello l'm Mr xxxx calling you from the SA high commission...you applied for a study visa?
Me: yes I did.
VO: what is your name?
Me: I replied
VO: what school are you going to
Me:UCT
VO: what course?
Me: mech and mechatronics
VO: who is sponsoring you?
Me: my father, and he has a company (said that because I used my father's company account)
VO: when is the course starting?
Me: the school resumes January 28 but I'll fly January 25th( that's what I stated in my introduction letter and that's the date in my flight reservation that I submitted)
VO:okay..then he said something like confirmed I didn't hear clearly though and he hanged up immediately

I'm wondering why they had to call on a Sunday.. What if I was in church ....i wasn't the one who picked at first.. I hope there's no problem with that?

It was like an interview tho..
I pray the visa is released this week o

Why not do a prepaid Booking for your application and you can also use it as evidence of Accommodation at the airport to avoid stories. because immigration at POE prefare Prepaid Booking!

Note: you can Adjust the date of your Arrival on the booking and reprint!!

Did you give out any Information Here or anywhere else (Numbers e.t.c). Just keep crossed fingers just Incase it is a Scam. Also Keep an Open Mind cos God Works in mysterious ways. Buzz me when you here the Goodnews.

Did you submit your application in Lagos or Abuja ?

Does anyone know if they have started attending to long term Visa (CSV) application in Lagos ?

Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by drmorphine(m): 7:44pm On Jan 13
Hi Everyone. I submitted my application for study permit at VFS Lagos on 11th December, 2018. Prior to my application submission, I had been told that it will not take more than 2 weeks before one gets a response from the High Commission.

Meanwhile, I would like to know if there is anyone here that is resuming in Pretoria for studies or work this month.

I pray we all get good news this week!

My study permit since August 29th from abuja commission is still not out tho they’re saying they’ve cleared their backlog
so your passport have been with SA embassy for 5months now?
Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by paulavon: 7:46am On Jan 14
Nice one Slickruler for trying to inspire others. But i think my SA journey is over. I don't have the money and time to start appealing their decision or reapplying.

slickruler:
Sorry for the Late response....

I am a Network Engineer. ONce you get your CSA from IITPSA, I think another aspect is in packaging your application. I went over board with my application. Attached all my Professional Qualification. Made sure every document that was required was provided. The Introduction letter, i made them see that they NEED me. I Think Gods grace played its part too. My Visa was out after 17 days of Application and I was giving 5 Years.

Unto Job search.. You just have to be Dogged about it. To get a job from Nigeria itself is crazy. I applied on every known website (LinkedIn, Indeed, pnet.co.za e.t.c). I engaged Recruiters on LinkedIn everyday. Some will respond to you, Others wont. The Ones that responded told you that you had to come over for any body to take you serious. I put in about 10 applications or more everyday. I even applied more than ones in a role.. Rejection after Rejection. I dint give up.

I got angry one day and called someone to get my Tickets for me. Booked my flight for October 2. I was determined to just go and hustle it out. I have my 5 Years visa already why Am i wasting it in naija.. Mind you i had a job oh that paid me above 300k. It was a Gamble and a calculated risk. A friend i met here that assisted in my application advised that i shud chill till January.. It fell on def ears.. I dint mind coming over to even work in a bar grin grin... As God will have it.. I bought my Tickets on Friday. the next Tuesday I was scheduled for an Interview for Wednesday (Zoom) , Did a video Interview with the Global HR on Thursday... Same Thursday i was asked what i wanted as my Pay.... I gave them a Figure.. Dint hear from them on Friday..Was worried maybe i over prized.. The next Monday, I got an Email with an Offer letter with the same Figure i asked for.. My Ticket was bought for 2nd October, I resumed 8th October.

I am sharing this for everybody or anyone that feels discouraged. If you have been Denied. Its not the end of the world. Look at the reason why you were denied and re apply again. Dont give up. The are opportunities here better than Nigeria especially if you are in IT (Developers, Programmers, Network/Security Enginners). I know Nigerians earning as much as 100k rand per month (God go soon do our own). If not for anything, Keep pushing for the future of your Kids. Sorry I dont see things Changing in Nigeria soon..


P.S If this Message touch you, abeg pray for me.. I applied for P.R.P this week. The same God that has established me here will make it a success





Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by slickruler: 9:57am On Jan 14
Its alright Paul.. Glad i assisted as much as I could.. Dem no tie anybody Yansh for S.A... Might Even look at Germany Maybe in two Years time Cos my Field is flexible. Goodluck in other endeavors
