I need to get birth certificates for both my children, somehow the originals have gone missing.

 

Do i still need to be subjected to home affairs or are there alternative places that will do them these days ?

how long is a long time ?

I've booked flights for march

 

When I did it back in Jan of 2017 I was instructed by Home Affiars Edenvale that it would take approximately 3 to 4 months. I needed it slightly quicker than that. Next door there was an "agent" and I got it in 3 days. Cost me 900 iirc.

 

March, you should be ok.

 

Don't think you need birth certificates for minors any more when travelling.

I went to Heidelberg HA, on a Saturday morning. Got there at 06:00 with a camp chair and book and sat there until they opened. Was third in line and was done by 09:00.

 

Girls got their passports, and I got my Smart ID, within 10 days.

Unabridged takes 6 months in Cape Town. Crazy. I actually can't believe it can take so long...

 

Pathetic IMHO.

I saw today home affairs has this bright new idea to do everything with biometrics or something so things might take twice as long now. Also all there third party agents won’t be able to help you out anymore. Yay...
