Your international passport introduces and confirms your nationality and visa allows you entry into another country. As long as your visa is still valid, of course you can travel with your new passport together with your old passport therein your valid visa.

I got here before making making payment.
You 'll notice I put it in my letter of self-introduction that I will register on arrival.
But note that the option of registering on arrival was a provision by my university and was clearly stated in my letter of invitation.

According to SA DHA rules, visas automatically expire when the passport expires. In fact they tag cases when the expiry dates of visa outlive that of passport as mistake. You can read about it

But I advise you to urgently reapply with your new passport.

I thought they said the embassy won't grant your visa if they don't see it regardless of option of medical insurance by the university

Bro, before you allow all these people make custom bounce you at the airport, I suggest you read the article below. You cant use a south African visa on an expired passport.

Did you read the link I posted please?

If you have any contravening opinion, I'd suggest you post the sites or official statements where sure was published. We need to be careful when we give these opinions online so as not to unwilfully affect the decisions of other readers.

The "official statement" was in 2017 and this is 2020

My siblings visited me early this year. One of them had a valid SA visa on an expired passport but also had a new one. Both passports were presented on departure from lagos and arrival in SA with zero issues so I'm not just posting because I want to, I'm giving first hand experience.

Any frequent traveller can corroborate this.

https://www.vfsglobal.com/dha/southafrica/transfer-rectification.html from VFS also verifies this since you've decided to dispute DHA information.

Or maybe you'd have us believe that both DHA and VFS statements are wrong but we can trust the experience of your 'siblings'. Something no one else can verify grin .

Abeg make the guy believe what he will, I have nothing to lose.

Nothing wey we no go read on Nairaland.

Hi All,

Can anyone here please give a summarized steps involved in applying for an SA student visa? Do we apply at the embassy or at VFS? And a comprehensive list of all documents to be submitted? I do have an admission already.
