What does Eskom and the South African Visa Facilitation centers have in common?
They are leaving 1000’s in the dark this Christmas!
In response to their colossal backlog of Visa and Permit applications in South Africa, the VFS have acted surprisingly by closing their facilities for the Christmas holidays.
The VFS have issued the dates they will be closed over the festive season as follows:
22 December 2014- 5th January 2015. They have made provision for 2 ‘collection only’ days: 22nd the 23rd of December 2014
To add insult to injury, applicants are already being made to wait 3 months for an appointment at some VFS centres, despite their claims that scheduling appointments would be within 5 days of registering on their online booking system.
