Good day, APPLICANT : Anastasia Zoë Strydom I am South African and already have a USA visa which I have used and is valid. My infant daughter is also south african and has a usa valid visa but has not been used. Thus i realised that and applied for a visa online for our visit to Albania. We however fly out THIS Thursday and meet my husband there as he is already there for business. We then fly back the 11th of August 2023. I can only see for days now that her visa says "paid in verification process". I am desperate and ofcoarse can not travel without my baby. Can you kindly assist?

Dear Sir or Madam, I would like to apply for a tourist visit for South Africa. My wife is a flight attendant with Lufthansa and I would like to accompany her on her flight in August. What documents do I need for the visa application? And how long would it approximately take? Thank you for any information. Kind regards, Urtjon Harusha
