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


Congratulations on your notification, please I have a question, I applied for study permit (PhD) at VFS office Lagos on the 11th of Nov 2018 but since then I have not received any text or Email from them, my friend who applied a month after me at VFS Abuja received a text today from the South Africa high commission that his passport has been sent to the South Africa Visa application center, please what could be the problem with my application what do you advice I do in my predicament?? Thanks
Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Juwohn: 9:20pm On Jan 15

I would advice you to be patient and wait till this week runs out as @sheddymore has said since you both applied at abuja..If there's no response then maybe you should go there in person...But I'm really optimistic that you'll be notified this week...just keep your fingers crossed

Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by editorAA: 9:53pm On Jan 15
I actually submitted my visiting visa application on the 2nd of January for a visa interrier in Pretoria at Lithuania embassy there but since my submission , I only got a text message and a mail on 8th of January that "my application has been received and under process or assessment". I haven't heard from them since that time.

Before submission, we signed an undertaken that says "I accept that our passport may spend more than 6 working days.."
My visa interview at the embassy is supposed to be on Thursday 17th January 2019. Now it is not possible.

I had to cancel the interview and pick another interview date on 24th of January 2019 to buy myself some time.

Still all to no avail cos I haven't heard anything from them.

Tracking is saying under review, my worry is that a friend of mine who submitted a month after me got a message today that his passport has been sent the South Africa visa application center but I'm yet to receive even an ordinary "hello" from them.

Hello my people,

Actually I don't know much about travelling but I want you guys to guild me.
I want to apply for CSV and I have read a lot about it but my challenge is that I want to know the actual amount I will spend during the process and amount of money I should have in my bank account.I went through IITPSA's website yesterday and I discovered that I am going to pay R950 for membership and R450 for Registration/Application fee.When scrolled down I discovered that I will still pay another money...CRITICAL SKILLS VISA
The non-refundable fee for a critical skills assessment is R3 000 + VAT (now at 15%, as from 01 April 2018) giving a total fee of R3, 450.00, payable on application for assessment..

Please kindly assist,am I still going to pay another money for visa or not?if yes,how much?

Thanks.

Hello bro,please what are the required documents someone needs to attach .
Thanks
quote author=slickruler post=74686038]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 Juwohn: 12:31pm On Jan 16
You can but if you are arriving in OR, chances are that you may not leave the airport with your yam. Their is a new restriction on agricultural projects. On arrival, passengers are randomly picked to scan their bags. If your yam is very clean without sand, you may be allowed to go. Infested beans will not be allowed. Mine has been seized like twice. First time I almost cried, 5tubers �‍♂️

Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Juwohn: 12:33pm On Jan 16
Did you travel this year?

geekybabe:


Well. You may be lucky like I was. I carried 4 and even carried plantains. cheesy. Make sure it is in the main luggage you are checking in and not in your hand luggage. Make sure the luggage is also wrapped and protected with a wrap at the airport.
When you arrive at Joburg and pick your luggage, Don’t act nervous or suspicious. There is a possibility the custom guys will want to rescan your luggage. Once u clear, you are good to go.
