The Department of Home Affairs does not have plans to suspend the capture of biometrics at ports of entry over the festive season, neither is it authorised to employ a greater number of immigration officials to cope with the greater number of travelers expected.

According to Director General Mkuseli Apleni the Department will, however, look at extending the opening hours at some ports of entry to 24 hours. More employees will be assigned to  certain ports such as OR Tambo International  to deal with the big rush of travelers. Don’t be alarmed when you are faced with long queues, you will be helped this festive season.
