Are you planning to visit Home Affairs any time soon, but quiver at your knees at the very thought and believe
Granted, there are Home Affairs Offices throughout South Africa that leave a lot to be desired, but again there are other t Home Affairs offices that have gone through a transformation and remarkable transition, offering the type of service so many South Africans have been longing for and deserve.
We all need to visit the Home Affairs Office from time to time for a variety of reasons. Whether we need to register the birth of a baby, require a change of name through marriage, or renew or apply for a passport. Suffice to say Home Affairs will always play a major role for millions of South Africans together with foreign citizens applying for a whole range of essential documentation.
We have given Home Affairs a bad name but did you know that there are offices that have gone through a fantastic transformation and are able to offer outstanding and excellent service to thousands of South Africans that pass through their doors?
The Home Affairs office in Edenvale until quite recently was a dismal, gloomy place where mothers with babies and children (obviously with no-one to take care of the little ones at home), often travelling great distances, had absolutely no-where to sit. There was no place to queue; furthermore old people could not even rest for a couple of minutes as the area was filthy and poorly run and had no chairs whatsoever?
