Dear South African Consulate Team I hope my message finds you well. I tried to make an appointment online to renew my South African passport, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to, as it doesn’t offer this service. May, I please ask, can I make an appointment in order to renew my South African passport. I will be travelling and moving homes, and therefore I will be available any day as from 6 June 2023. Thanking you so much and I look forward to hearing from you.
