Appealing a rejected application

By publishing this blog post, we merely wish to remind individuals, who need to lodge an appeal application, that you may do so within 10 working days of collecting the rejected visa or permanent residence application outcome.

We reiterate that the timeline is 10 working days and NOT 10 days - public holidays and weekends are not counted as business days and the first working day starts one day after the outcome was collected.

We recommend adding as much supporting documents to your appeal application and concentrate submitting only facts and factual paperwork - even though this is a very emotional experience for many.

Lastly, we wish to add that appeal applications must be submitted in person, whether within South Africa or abroad. All appeal applications are processed by the Department of Home Affairs Head Office in Pretoria.

Should you require any further information on the appeal process, please reach out to us via our Contact Form on Alternatively, you may contact us on +2773 5357 534 or

We look forward to hearing from you!
