Home Affairs will be offline for a week

As Home Affairs’ Director General Mkuseli Apleni announced in Pretoria 4 days ago, about 140 of the Home Affairs offices all around the country are going to be shot down for five days from 27. November until 2. December 2015.

Reason for that will be a upgrading of its hardware and software for a live capturing system for the new smart ID and passports.Smart-ID-card

It shall become easier to use for clients in the future, as for example it will be possible for people to apply for documents online without having to go to the HA office.

ID and passport services will not be available during this time of upgrading. However, all the other services like birth, death and marriage certificates are not affected.
