Parking on the street in the Cape Town city centre can be trying ; )

Barrack Street in particular is a narrow, one-way street offering very little parking.

I recommend that you find parking in Harrington or Canterbury Streets (see diagram) and walk the couple of blocks to Barrack Street as required.
You'll save yourself a load of frustration!

Service excellence?...!

Home Affairs has received a lot of criticism in recent months. The truth is, I have seldom found them either speedy or helpful in the 18 years I have had dealings with them!

But... the tide may be turning : ).

Last week a friend had her passport stolen the night before she was due to fly to Australia. How long did it take Home Affairs to issue her with a replacement document?

A mere 40 minutes!!

That's not too shabby, is it?

But don't hold your breath... lightning seldom strikes twice in the same spot!
