They did, that is how we come to know about the forms we had to send in, the money to be paid, etc.
How long have you been back pjkay?
We are moving to the garden route which is so very dry at the moment.
Been in SA since 1980 and in Zim since 1972..Never left SA ..But family in and out..I had to get them all the info late 2009.. They not due back till end 2010..
The weather is dry in some parts..The dams are OK here but for how long we dont know.. Had some problemswith friends who are perm res and let their stamps for perm res expire (after 3 yrs now..) Son is a citizen and he has no problem but the car was a hassle..However in the end he decided against bringing back.. Said warranty and different model to SA equivalent was too much of a problem..So he will sell and replace with what he needs when he arrives.
Garden route still very nice..But the drive up and road works etc has put me off..
There are alternative routes from Cape Town via old route 62. But those roads were also sick when we went last Time to storms river.. March 2009..
May go up later this year after world cup..Storms River Mouth our favourite place..In the oceanettes..Great bargain for the over 60's.. Sa National Parks.
