Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by opsy4real1: 1:13pm On Oct 16, 2012
Ok sir. Yea my initial application was on 17 Dec 2011 and was made to realize processing time was btw 6-10working days to get ready but unfortunately got my passport back on feb 13,2012 wit a refusal based on 'invalid vaccination card'(yellow card got tru som1 though)
I applied as the MD/CEO of a biz enterprise. And I submitted photocopies of d biz reg wit CAC, letter of introduction and indicating my purpose of
Visit, I.D card, personal statement of a/c, photocopies of previous visas.

I reapplied feb 28 and got d vaccine card frm local govt health centre but i had to withdraw my application in toward d end of may because i exhausted my patience wen it wasnt treated in time n needed to use my passport for other purposes...now i wanna reapply but d appointment wait time is nothing to write home about.
collinsfbi:

Even if you were denied ten times, you are still considered as applicant with no traveling record. To be sincere with you, you are still a first time applicant/traveler. Can you share briefly some of the experiences of your previous application all together with the documents submitted?

queen47: Pls, how easy is it to get admission in SA and a student visa to SA and what's the financial involvemt like??

There's actually a whole lot the internet and a simple google search can do for you, I must respectfully suggest.
Search google for schools in SA, preferably using your intended area of study for starters. Trust me, you'll find something in no time! Which should subsequently lead you to a choice school website where not only will you determine "how easy" admission may be, but also the cost implications.
Good luck!

If you have a registered business, it will be the best to include your company docs which will serve as tie to your home country. Since you are sponsoring your trip yourself, your personal statement of account must be included regardless of the company statement but if you still want to include your company statement of account, no problem, but make sure your personal statement of account has enough fund regardless of any amount you have in your company account. Besides, your letter of application for visa must contain the purpose of your visit and must be done separately from your letter of introduction which can be done with your company letter head stating your relationship/position with the company.

Thanks so much. I want to ask, I need like how much in my personal account? Do I need tax clearance or not?

From your list of docs i can't see your hotel booking or letter of invitation but i will advise you to include a paid hotel booking this time and pls note; South African Embassy consider some vaccination cards invalid most especially cards with old date (e.g 1969) compare to some with 20XX date. If you can't endure the appointment date issue for submission, apply through medical.

As long as you meet their requirements for both admission and study permit

valentino81: Thanks so much. I want to ask, I need like how much in my personal account? Do I need tax clearance or not?

Make sure you have from 300k above in your acct, tax clearance is not an important requirement but as an employee/employer, try to include it to prove the truthfulness of your employment/company.

Sorry for replying late but you will need to present two documents to support your application for medical. First, get a letter from your doctor address to South African Embassy stating the condition of your health and their support for travel to South African for proper and advance treatment. Secondly, contact any registered and recognized clinic/medical centre in South Africa through email or any with electronic appointment schedule system, fix a date with them and print out your the confirmation of your appointment or their approval to your mail to support your application. With these documents, you can go to South African application centre any day any time for submission. Just tell the men at the gate that you are submitting for medical and show them the two docs, they will allow you in and most importantly applications for medical are not normally denied except if you don't have sufficient fund in your account.

Am sorry, i have been busy somehow, go this site; http://www.netcare.co.za/live/netcare_index.php select a location of your residence/intended stay, then select a hospital/clinic, contact then through their email addresses to scheduling appointment for treatment. Print their approval to your request and add to the letter from your doctor to support your application. Mind you, this does not affect your normal hotel booking but just make your hotel booking same location with hospital to be selected.

Then visit here; http://doctors-hospitals-medical-cape-town-south-africa.blaauwberg.net/index.php and select either "Audiologists - Hearing Specialists" or any other area of treatment then contact each of the available clinic/doctor for that area of specialist through mail. Note most of the doctors don't have online appoinment schedule except for Dr. Carol Thomas - Gynaecologists and Obstetricians which make online appoinment easier for female patients http://doctors-hospitals-medical-cape-town-south-africa.blaauwberg.net/details.php?id=517

As long as you can convince the embassy of your return and sufficient fund for your trip but using your aunty's account is a great disadvantage as you are already above 18years.

Please help me out sir!!!
You will be granted visa under medical but you must be able to show little fund in your own account even if your aunty will sponsor you claiming you are not working and she is ready to take responsibility for your trip and medical bill. Your aunty must support your application with letter of support/sponsor (in her company letter head) stating your relationship, your health status and taking responsibility for your trip and bill supported with her bank statement of account, copy of her passport/ID, tax clearance if possible,CAC of her company, letter from your medical practitioner stating your health status/support for medical attention abroad, confirmation of appointment with SA clinic/hospital/medical practitioner. if you can't do that then let your aunty make fund available in your account but not lump sum even at that you won't be able to submit your application as early as you may want to.

God bless you sir.... My aunty works with the General Hospital so she's not a Company owner.

Secondly, I hope funding my own personal account will be another problem because I'll have to wait till some time before I apply. Originally, I wish to travel before December. Please suggest another option sir.

If South Africa will not work with my Aunty's account, is there any other Country that I can easily process with this?

PLEASE KINDLY ASSIST WITH DETAILS SIR!!!!

I think you are getting it all wrong, I never ask your aunty to use her own company letter head, I was only referring to her place of work letter head paper and thank God she works at a General Hospital, using her place of work letter head paper makes it look official but that does not mean she cannot use an ordinary paper. Getting early appointment now is where the problem lies and the only way by which you can submit your application now is through medical category. Get a letter from your medical doctor and get an appointment confirmation from SA either online or through email and go for submission. Am sure you don't expect me to start telling you the type of ailment you are to claim. Think of one and get a coherent supporting documents and go for your submission, nobody will interview you, only your submitted docs will speak for you.

I don't think I can really give you the advice you need but I think naija is where you can really make it even if you are singing rubbish or producing nonsense, what matters is to make your $$$$$$, I won't discourage you from going to SA but don't you think it's easier to promise people but fulfilling is another issue most especially someone you don't know. Our naija type of songs is different from what is in vogue in SA, what we sell or buy in naija is musical beats even if the lyrics is nothing to write home about. Think about it.
