    Good morning I need documents notorising? Are you able to assist me. kind regards Lisa Hayne

    Good morning, I hope I am contacting the right person for this but, if not, please could you point me in the right direction. My wife and I got married in South Africa in July last year and the wedding company we used provided us with a written abridged certificate and the option to pay for an unabridged one, either expedited for an additional cost to get it sooner or non-expedited which we were told could take 12-18 months. We have since tried to change my wife's name on her drivers license with the abridged copy but it was lost in the post. I paid for a replacement to be sent via airmail but it hasn't arrived and I've asked to try and track the full unabridged version but the company haven't been responding to me. I can send the BI-130 form and the copy of our original abridged certificate. Please could you tell me the cost of the unabridged certificate, as if it isn't too much, I'd rather just pay to have it sorted now, because as time goes on, I have less confidence it will actually arrive. I can forward the invoices etc for the unabridged one if there is any way that would help to trace it and get an ETA for when we might receive it. Any help would be appreciated! Kind regards, Chris Taylor


    Hi, Kindly let me know of the opening dates and hours for visa (visitors) application/submission. Thank you.

    Good Afternoon, Please kindly advice me on your requirements for a visiting/ tourist visa to South Africa. Also, would a British passport holder require a visa to visit south Africa?

    Christopher (Kit) Emery

    Please can you advise if we can get my daughters South African Passport renewed in Manchester. It has expired in 2018. She will also require an ID Book as she will be 16 years old soon. Both my wife and I also need to update our ID Books. We are all entitled to dual passports, being both British, and South African. Ideally, we would like to be able to attend an appointment on Monday 20th February, as this is during the school half term holiday. We are planning a holiday to South Africa in July this year, and I am aware that there might not be enough time to complete the process of getting the passport. If this is the case, can we get any other documentation for the trip? Please can you advise me of our options, and if we can come to Manchester, where to find the passport office. Thank you in advance
