Kimberley – Northern Cape

Kimberley is the capital of the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. It is located approximately 110 km east to the confluence of the Vaal and Orange Rivers. The city has considerable historical significance due to its diamond mining past and the siege during the Second Boer War. Notable personalities such as Cecil Rhodes and Barney Barnato made their fortunes here, and the roots of the De Beers Company can also be traced to the early days in the mining town.

VFS Visa Facilitation Service centers

VFS Global, a specialist service provider for authorities and diplomatic missions worldwide, has been contracted to automate and run the application process, including handling the 11 facilitation centers spread across the nine states of South Africa and also the call centre.

Foreigners in South Africa, who, for instance, need to extend their temporary residence visas for study or work, will have the ability to apply online and also set up an appointment before visiting the closest facilitation centre to submit their personal biometrics (fingerprints and pictures). Handling and visa fees will be paid electronically.

South Africa is busy setting up 11 new visa facilitation centers,with managed technology service specialist VFS Global and by international outsourcing, as a way to streamline services for foreign nationals applying for visa extensions or changes in South Africa while tightening the country’s protection.

Speaking to journalists’ hindmost week, Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba said the centers would economically apply the country’s new immigration rules, which came into effect from 2014, while making life easier for foreign tourists, business people, workers or students who need extended or modified visas in a short space of time.

“This is a departure from the existing way of manual application procedures that are responsible for inefficiencies within the allowing surroundings,” Gigaba said.
