Apply For Your Passport Now

Students planning an overseas trip are facing the possibility of cancelled or delayed plans as passport offices buckle under post-Covid-restrictions demand.

Our reports suggest unprecedented passport processing delays have resulted in people queueing for hours at passport offices and people spending hours calling to check for updates on their documents.

SAF strongly advises students to plan ahead and check passport processing times with their local authorities.

  1. Follow advice from your host country's national medical organization.
