Good day, I would like to apply for a German Passport. I am a Citizen of South Africa by Birth. My late father left Germany +- 1934 and lived and died in South Africa. Unfortunately the only information I have for my father is a Town name in Germany where I believe he lived (Langallan- Kreis Hemel). The Department Home Affairs in Cape Town do not have any record of my fathers' status in South Africa as the manual records were not captured at the time and all I have is his South African I.D. number and his Marriage and Death notices. Please advise how I can proceed with this application. Yours sincerely, Clive Friedberg
I have completed my visa application form and would like to schedule an appointment at the Consulate for the processing of my application. My intended departure date is 15 April 2023. Kind regards
