“A number of business associates and I have been fortunate enough to benefit from the highly professional, reliable and prompt service rendered by Michele Steynberg of Passport Control. Promised delivery dates were always timeously met and we unreservedly recommend Michele’s expertise to anyone who wishes to avail themselves of her efficient and hassle-free processing of their personal or travel documentation.”
“Thanks again for your very efficient service! I picked up both certificates! You have no idea how much your help is appreciated.”
“She has been professional, upfront and a complete pleasure to know and saved me a significant amount of time and money. Don’t think twice about it, get your South African passport application or renewal done through Michele, you are in the very best of hands.”
“It is very rare in business these days that a firm will give a commitment and actually deliver. But that is exactly what happened with Michele. I realised with just five weeks to go before I left for the USA that my passport had expired. I found Michele on the internet and she told me the would get it done in time. While I was sitting on tenterhooks, Michele was calm and reassuring and sure enough, with five days to go, I got the call to tell me they had my passport. Well done ladies!”

Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has given South Africans who work and study abroad the greenlight to return to the countries where they are based.
Motsoaledi, the Department of International Relations and Cooperation and the National Coronavirus Command Council, approved essential travel for South Africans who want to return to countries where they are based.
"South Africans who wish to leave the Republic are permitted to depart only for the following reasons: work, study, family reunion, take up permanent residency and receive medical attention," Home Affairs said in a statement
South Africa has implemented travel restrictions as part of the measures put in place to fight the spread of Covid-19.
But, travel between countries is allowed in special circumstances.
The department said those wishing to return to the countries where they reside should have the following:
a) A copy of their valid South African passport
(b) A letter confirming their admissibility under the current circumstances from the embassy or other diplomatic/consular representative of the country they want to travel to. If returning by road or connecting via flights, the proof submitted needs to include permission from each transiting country.
(c) Proof of means of travel such as air or bus tickets and the intended date of departure.
"South Africans who fall in these categories and satisfy the criteria can send an email to Covid19travel@dha.gov.za."
The department said an email would be sent to travellers who meet the criteria to enable them to proceed with their travel arrangements.
"People applying as a group can send one email with the supporting documents for each member of the group."
Under absolutely NO circumstances will any parcels or documents be collected from any post office!!! COURIER ONLY
