Is there anyone who has received their CSV recently, I applied for mine a month back and I heard someone say they can now take a year or more to be processed. How far true is this?:oops:

Eish. I really wish it comes out quicker, for your sake. But be psychologically prepared to wait for more than a year. Currently those who applied over a year ago havent received their outcomes yet. But once again this process is not consistent it is possible that they may decide to clear back logs. But just dont put yourself under pressure. Just be patient.

1-2 years isn't unheard of when applying from Zimbabwe

Am shocked that's almost 2yrs ,have you tried inquiring
I applied around the same as well March 2019, nothing, I have made numerous enquiries - according to them they have not been processing CSV since the lockdown started apparently operations resumed in October and like every other time--keep checking next week

Went to enquire on my September 2019 CSV application today at VFSGLOBAL Harare, apparently they now working on Jul 2019 applications. However they said they will be prioritising the study visas as varsity about to open.....On the other hand a friend I told to apply for a study visa last year 2020 then later to submit her CSV application from within SA just recieved her CSV after 10weeks from submission date!!! Disclaimer dont do anything illegal it only works when you intend to proceed with your study but trying to also get your CSV. Sooo I'm still waiting on mine.... .
