Note that VFS offices within South Africa are closed for submissions of applications from 22 December and open again on 4 January 2016. Submission appointments for December are largely booked out. Apart from the public holidays, VFS is closed for collections on 24, 30 and 31 December.

Note: VFS have successfully opened in London and are set to open in Harare soon, which should bring some relief to applicants from Zimbabwe.
