South Africa, Tori Stowe

South African English is lekker!

Due to the security considerations and the up-surge in the number of visa applications, the Mission would like to emphasize that it is on top of the situation and is working hard to lessen the waiting period for both applications and receipt of visas. The Mission would also like to implore the broader community in Taiwan to be patient.
