I will share some experiences which may help.

From my experience and that of my friend when we asked for the date and email, SAQA refused to send us, the institution's email they sent the message to, rather they will prefer to send the date and time they contacted our respective schools.
The reason they gave was that it was for confidentiality purposes, that the applicant is not supposed to know the exact institution recipient's email.

All efforts to get our schools to acknowledge the receipt of the verification request was tough.

For me;
I tried to figure out by asking my school which email they usually receive such a request and also checked up my school website to see the email that was more pronounced. Fortunately, the registrar's was the game.
Using the time & date, SAQA gave me, we were able to track the email and my school responded accordingly.

For my friend;
He did the same but his school could not track the SAQA mail from their system. Alternatively, he asked his school (registrar's office) to send his academic records to SAQA mail (foreignawards@saqa.org.za)
His school did and SAQA acknowledged the receipt and there we zoom...

From this little story of mine, I hope it will help the concerned individuals draw some insights to fast-track their SAQA evaluation process.

Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Ibukune(m): 4:50pm On Nov 16
Thanks bro for this. I was on a call with SAQA today and they also reiterate the fact that they won't disclose the email they contacted my school with, but I was told it was sent on the 16th of october. But the copy of transcript I sent to SAQA doesnt even have the email address of the registrar rather that of graduate school, does that mean that SAQA has access to email address of such people in their database?

pls can you send me a whatsapp message, I will like to talk to you. Pls my number is on my bio.

I'm about to apply for a tourist visa. I have my documents. My uncle is a South African Citizen, he sent me his notarized SA passport, house papers, bank papers and invitation letter. I will be applying with my mom as she's also included in the invitation letter.
Please how much is the visa fee now?

I suggested the student route to her and asked her to make enquiries for me and she said I should go for the j1 visa from the little research she made. do you think she can send me the same documents your uncle sent you so I can apply for a tourist visa also

Be wary of these agents sha.
Look at the requirements for the visa you want to apply for and submit it yourself.
If you have any questions, you can ask here and hopefully someone can respond.

You need to look for someone who can assist you with that in South Africa. The medical fees is more than the daily limit for foreign transaction in Nigeria.
