Home Affairs temporarily extends operating hours

Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, Minister of Home Affairs, has granted a two-hour temporary extension of
front-office operation hours.
The administration said this is to meet the growing demand for smart ID cards and passport services
at Home Affairs offices.


This extension, from 08:00 to 17:30 with effect from Tuesday, applies to the 198 modernised Live
Capture offices which can process smart ID cards and passports.


β€œThe department usually receives a higher volume of applications during school holidays. To meet
the demand during this period, we have extended operating hours,” Motsoaledi said in a statement
on Monday.
Motsoaledi emphasised that this is a temporary extension.
