Fees, Payment Options
You can find a compilation of all fees charged for consular services on the general page on fees for the German missions in South Africa.
Please note that additional fees apply for certain consular services offered by the Honorary Consul.
If documents need to be couriered to the competent German mission (e.g. passports applications, name declarations, registrations of births or marriages, citizenship applications), the respective costs for sending such documents will be charged to you (currently 270.- ZAR)
Further to that, the office of the Honorary Consul is equipped with specific hard- and software in order to be able to take biometric data (fingerprints) from passport applicants, while the final responsibility for the issuance of passports in South Africa rests with the German missions.
Apart from the passport fees (please refer to the general page on fees) and the costs for sending the applications to the competent German mission (see above), additional fees must be charged if you apply for a passport through the Office of the Honorary Consul:
- 25 EUR for identification
- 20 EUR for certification of your signature
- 10 EUR for certification of copies (1-10 pages)
The conversion of the fees from Euro to ZAR is done on the actual day of payment based on the exchange rate in use at the Consulate General in Cape Town.
- Cash only – Regrets: no credit card payments can be accepted
Consular Services are offered Monday-Friday. For each service it is imperative to schedule an appointment.
