Trust you are well.
I was not happy with the service I received from one of the staff member by the name of Thembisile. I have applied for a change of surname on the 23 January 2019 for my son & it was my fourth time doing follow up on the 17/02/2020. I haven't received any SMS since my last follow up until today as the manager promised.

On Friday 02 Nov 2018 at 15:29 I got an email from Home Affairs to say I have paid for a IDpassport. I did not apply for one because I already have one. Tried calling on Friday but no success. I have attached the email from Home Affairs.

Good day can you please assist me urgently i have been to you Offices in Akasia every week for almost two months now for them to change my Maritial status on there system so i can get my new marriage certificate and apply for my new id but every week is the same story nothing has been changed why is it taking so long just to change something on a computer this is causing a lot of problems for me because i am on my husbands medical aid and are expecting our baby but everybody wants a marriage certificate and id and i don't get any service from home affairs.
I was told by the Department of International Relations and Cooperations to get a Letter of Impediment for the Home Affairs in Kokstad, and said that all home affairs issues this letter, but when i got there, no one knows what is a Letter of Impediment, i then phoned Pretoria to speak these people working at home affairs, they still dont understand!!! How can these people still work there???? I then went back at 2:30 pm, waited there for like 10 minutes, and was told that that lady is off... i mean, its only 2:30pm, these useless black people, they always drag their feets! take more then twice the actual time to finish one thing.!!! These people need to be educated and know what is a No impediment, and not just sit there with heater next to them, cannot help us while taking the salary !
I applied for a permit renewal on 1-Nov-2011 at the Germiston HOme affairs. My permit was expiring on 31 - Dec - 2011. It took 7 months for the home affairs to give me a result and it was rejected stating that my application did not meet the requirements. I am married to a SA citizen and hence some requirements do not apply to my application. This information was included in my application. I submitted a appeal in June 2012 again at the Germiston Home Affairs but i havent heard anything yet from the dept of home affairs abt progress. Please help.
I have handed in my application for my passport, temporary ID and ID book. I have contacted your customer service to find out how far my application is. Whether I can come collect my Passport and ID in the next few days, but all they told me is that there are no applications on their system for me and that I have to contact the Regional Office in Pretoria, which I did. They also confirmed that there is no application of any kind on my Name on their system. I have the receipts of paying R400.00 for my Passport and another R120.00 for my ID Document. The regional office suggested that I should call the Centurion Office where I applied for everything. The offices moved a long time ago, and still dont have any new contact numbers where I couldve at least found out where my applications were. The Regional Office also suggested after I called them to say that the number they gave me for the Centurion Office was not correct any more as I was greeted by a lady from an Engineering Company or so, that I should go to the Centurion Office in person. How am I supposed to get there if I dont live in Pretoria? And then stand in line for a few hours again just because THEY lost my application.
I got married at the department of Home affairs Regional office here in P.E & on 21-12-2009 we submitted an...
my husband and our two children wanted to renew our permits so we pllied at the nearest home affairs, that is, George.the date of submission was 26 November 2010.after several follow ups we were told to reapply in March 2011 and we did that twice. ny husband got an sms on the 6th of April saying that our permits have been finalised and amazingly our renewal was rejected, the reason being that we applied after our permits had expired. our permits were expiring 31 Dec 2010 and we renewe 26 Nov 2010 almost a month before they expired so what are we supposed to do. my husband is a qualified electrician and in the last 3 years we have spent close to 15 000 rands at home affairs for permits. how long will this go on?people who were illegal were being sished out 4 year permits and us since we have been here we have never been illegal, have done everything by the book.please advise.
I finally understand why people go to Home Affairs and take hostages or commit suicide at their offices. I have an existing Passport that expires in Jan 2010, unfortunately you can't travel abroad with your passport for the last 6 months your passport is valid. I will be traveling to Zanzibar in Oct 09 so that meant I had to apply for a renewal. I went to the Home Affairs in Kempton Park in May 09 thinking that this should be more than enough time.
Well guess what it is now middle Sept and I still do not have my passport. I had to submit my photos and fingerprints twice now and was just informed now I have to submit it again. I have spoken to Head Office on numerous occasions and they inform me Kempton Park must re-capture the application. When I speak to Kempton Park they inform me that it is with Head Office.
I even gone as far as to ask to speak to a Supervisor at Head Office who took my phone number and told me she would come back to me in 2 days time. I tried to phone her after 3 days and her phone just rings. They even gave me her cell nr and that also just ring.
I am so disgusted by the lack of service I'm getting from the department of home affairs. In February 2009 I went to a Sasolburg branch to apply for a new ID to rectify the date of birth. In March I got a call from one of the staff members at the same branch saying I need to have my fingerprints done and they say I have done this in Feb when I first went in. Done. Waited a few months before I could check the status with the call centre. I spoke to a Shirley and Patience on 24th Aug and they both mentioned that they're received my application to change my surname!! I was shocked, they gave me a case number to say that they'll pass a message to the head office to rectify this, they said I had to phone back after 2-3weeks to check, I did that but all they say is : 'your application is with the head office'. Spoke to Precious on 03 September. I spoke to Mandla today, gave him the case number and he put me on hold only to cut me off. I immediately dialled back and the same Mandla answered, this time he didn't put me on hold but he gave me the very same famous answer: 'your application is with the head office'. What am I supposed to do to get this rectified. I'm really sick of this!!!
