Centralized adjudication process - Further updates

In an earlier post, we announced that the Department of Home Affairs withdrew the centralized adjudication process with immediate effect. We also noted that we do not expect the backlog to be cleared immediately.

Well - it seems this is indeed the case as we have received confirmation that all long-term visa applications, submitted prior to 01 September 2022, will continue being reviewed by the Home Affairs Head Office in Pretoria. This means that all these applicants unfortunately need to hold on a tad bit longer to receive the outcomes of their visa applications.

New applicants are in a more fortunate position, which should allow them to experience the regular processing timeframes of the SA missions before the centralization process has been put in place.
