If a passport is stolen or lost, the incident must be reported to the police in order to get an affidavit and also to Campus Control if the passport was lost/stolen on campus. The International Students Office will then issue the student with a copy of the passport (the page containing your personal details and passport number) and a copy of the study visa. The student should then proceed to their embassy to apply for a new passport. As soon as the passport is available, the student should go to http://www.vfsglobal.com/dha/southafrica/ to apply for a replacement study visa.
Documents required are:
- New passport
- Copy of stolen passport
- Copy of Study Visa and
- Confirmation of registration from faculty
Passport renewals are done at the Embassy, High Commission or Consulate of your home country in South Africa.
