This is the ONLY type of visit that must be chosen ! The other three visit types are for different purposes and should not be selected !
Attention! It is necessary to select a date on the GREEN background during registration.
If the date is on a RED background, it means that all visit time slots for that day are already taken.

Every visitor must register individually. Visitors without registration will not be serviced.
One registered visitor will be given 30 minutes to submit documents.
One of registered parents may bring one child under 12 years old along without the registration.
In case you need to bring along the other kids under 12, you need to book another appointment (in a row, if possible).
Children above 12 years old must have their own appointments.
Visitors are kindly asked to arrive on time.
If you did not receive an email from “[email protected]” with the attached “pdf” - “Visitor registration card” file, it means that you have no appointment. Take a new available date and repeat the booking.
If the time slot you've have chosen is already booked by somebody else, the attempt to book an appointment may result a blank screen or an automatic reply with an “Error message”.

For the period of the pandemic in South Africa, due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19, in order to avoid unexpected cancelations of the visits, the visitors calendar for the time being will only be opened for 1 (one) month ahead.
The Embassy does not and will not accept applications for urgent issuance of a passport / ID card or upon ones private request as there is no capacity to do so given a backlog of visits caused by months of suspension of the embassy's consular activities.
Passports are produced in Lithuania and delivered to South Africa once a month only.
It usually takes from 1.5 to 2 months to collect a passport / ID card from the day of submission of the documents to the Consular section.
Upon the Embassy receiving the issued passport/ID card, the Embassy will inform each holder of the passport / ID by e-mail and provide a link to the registration calendar for the document’s collection.
All visitors must wear protective mask upon their arrival to the Consular section's premisses.
No protective mask, no entry! Hand disinfectant will be available at the entrance.
