Hi there

I applied for my ID at the Randburg Home Affairs and got the sms with reference number soon after i left their offices. I think Randburg Home Affairs is more organised and they do not have those long queues and they very friendly.
Now the long wait starts.

I wonder if I can't just put another ID application, this time in Randburg. What's the point of waiting when i don't even have a reference number and all I get from HA are red faces and unanswered phone calls.

yah Randburg i think its the best office and best service.
If i want to follow up do i just contact the Head office hotline?
They refused to register me learners licence because i do not have an ID. Do i also need Traffic register if i got permanent residence?

Kind regards

Your reference number was on the back on your application form and it starts with 000. You just need to be patient. I applied for my ID in February and I received a reception sms from Home Affairs in May and I am still waiting for the collection sms. I would suggest to call the call center and they should be able to trace your application with just your surname, first name and date of birth. Call Center: 080 -060-1190. You can't get the status of your application on Home affairs website with your reference number anyway. You will have to call the call center or visit your office of application to get the status of your application. Good luck!

Yes you need that. I have a PR but no ID as yet. I did my learners using my Traffic Register.

You can also track your ID application sending sms. Yes you need to send the word "ID_reference number " and send it to 32551. You will get the status of your ID application with the sms.

My ID application was moving fast now its get stuck on marriage validation section. Any one have same problem like mine?

I'm thinking the same. my application was in for 3 months already, no ref number to date. Checked it at the application office, they said it was still within the their office, so many application. WTF.

Let me know if we can hand-in two applications at different offices

I wouldn't suggest that. You might push them to cancel your previous application and you're going to need to re-apply for the third time. Just be patient. I have been waiting for almost 5 months for my ID.
