Undesirable !!!

19 June 2014, 12:56
I'm French citizen, and came to South Africa in 2012 with my family. My Work permit expired in April, so I applied to Home Affairs to obtain a 90 days extension for my wif and childrens, in order to let my children finish the school term.I've been waiting my approval since March, and it is still "pending" at Home Affairs.I had to proof a flight reservation (next Monday) when I applied. Now, if my wife take this flight, she will be considered as an "undesirable" person for 5 years !I understand that HA can decide to change the rule, but what I do not accept, is the fact that they apply the new rule to people who tried to follow and respect the laws. If HA have some backlog, they need to accept their incompetence and allow people to travel out of the country, and no retaining persons against their rights.
