Dear Visa Applicant
The Liaison Office of South Africa (LOSA) wishes to
inform all applicants that the visa system used for the
issuance of visas is currently offline. Visas are being
processed and hand written visas will be issued. Since
this is a manual process issuance takes much longer.
The Mission takes note that applicants were issued with
dates for collection of their passports, however, your
passport may not be ready upon collection. Applicants
are therefore advised that the office will inform them
once their application has been processed and passports
are ready for collection. Kindly monitor your emails for
a notification for collection.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
