The Immigration Office at the Australian High Commission in Pretoria is receiving high volumes of visa applications leading into the peak season, eTNW reports.
As a result, the processing of visa applications may experience some delays.
To ensure that clients are able to travel by their intended travel date, agents are advised to lodge their visa applications as early as possible.
Additionally, clients who are planning to visit Australia for a holiday during Christmas and New Year must lodge their application before Friday, November 30, for planned travel between December 21 and January 5. This needs to be done as soon as possible as late visitor visa applications lodged may not be processed until next year.
