Thank you for an informative newspaper.
My name is Johannes Paaka, and I am long-distance truck driver from Ermelo in Mpumalanga.
Could you kindly explain the process of getting a new passport?
Thank you for your letter.
Kindly note that the Department charges R600 for a new passport. You must have a South African identity document to apply for a passport, or if you are a child, a birth certificate.
The Department of Home Affairs has launched an online booking system for some offices. For a list of the offices, visit www.dha.gov.za. To book an appointment go to https://services.dha.gov.za/#/authenticate/identity.
