Hello @Aarthi007.

 

ID and Passport applications are processed on the home affairs website.

 

We only facilitate the payment process and then you visit any of our participating branches for biometrics and collection.

 

Please visit the home affairs page at: dha.gov.za.

 

The bank branches are also listed on the website.

 

You can check from 3 - 6 weeks in advance for available dates.

 

I hope this answers your question.

 

Kind regards,
Fana.
Standard Bank Team.

I understand that it means that the days shown are fully booked, I get that and it's quite clear. What I don't understand is why you cannot select a date further in the future, like in 2 month's time? It's doesn't make sense.
I will contact home affairs.

Hi @dotnel.

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

This means that most days are full booked.

 

You can contact home affairs directly for more info.

Hi there, I am still unclear as to how we are supposed to book an appointment to come in for the biometrics when the calendar only showa 4 weeks at a time and won't allow you to book an appointment further ahead. I have been trying to make a booking for 3 weeks now and it just won't allow me too.

Please assist

Hi

 

I am also trying to make an online booking to get my biometrics done (Fingerprints/photos) with Standard Bank Kingsmead through the government website and it keep coming up as no Time slots available. The site is also showing us dates for only 2 weeks ahead.

This is very concerning as Durban only has 1 branch offering this service and payment is already done in full.

We opt to do our passport this method to avoid long queues , etc at the Home Affairs offices.

Please advise how we can resolve this issue as soon as possible as the passport is needed urgently.
