Residency Permits and Passport renewal in South Africa
Hi. Does anyone know the answer to my passport renewal/residency permit renewal? I cannot get a straight answer from the SA Home Affairs....
I am Canadian and need to renew my passport when I visit Canada for a month during an upcoming trip. Will I then be able to return to SA on my current relative's permit (which is stamped in my current, soon to be old passport?) What happens once i get my new canadian passport, will they let me also keep the old one, and will it still be valid for travel? If not, then I will have to renew my passport in SA, but I havent known anyone long enough for me to get it "guaranteed" by anyone here in SA properly. They need to have known me personally for 2 years.
