    Hi, I am planning a work trip to South Africa for 7 weeks in March. However, I hold a Polish passport, which means I can only go for 30 days without a visa. I currently live in the UK.  I tried to find it on the website as to how to apply for one, but couldn't find it.  Would you be able to provide me with some details please alongside on how to make an appointment?
