How did you eventually come right getting them to cancel the old application?So I managed to get home affairs to cancel my old passport so I have done my application online but no bookings at all at the banks? I looked at Gauteng as well and nothing. Anyone in KZN got a recommendation for a quick Home Affairs office that I can go to?
I had the same issue, just called into home affairs and told them the problem, she cancelled the old application and said it would take 24hours to reflect and it did, application went through.How did you eventually come right getting them to cancel the old application?
I have a similar issue with my daughter having turned 16 whilst an application was made at 15. Now we stuck and need them to cancel the first application to be able to submit another from her own profile.
Can you not just edit the application that is already on the system?Hi, I'm trying to apply for a passport for my mother and get this error. I've tried creating new applications and this happens.
I phoned Home Affairs and they said it's an error from the office in Pinetown who created and application and did not close it. They said I have to get in touch with Pinetown. Is there anything I can do to get this issue resolved?

Edit: Sorry didn't see the part where it said on the old system. What the actual fudge man
Have you tried editing the date range trick that was mentioned somewhere in the thread?I managed to email the manager of Home Affairs in Pinetown and got it sorted out.
Unfortunately now that I can access the dates, I see that there are no dates available in Durban this year.
My suggestion is to visit the relevant bank branch and speak to the ladies there with regards to the difficulty you're having getting an appointment date. They are helpful and maybe able to assist and slot you in sooner due to the glitch.Just hoping I get an appointment early next year. I have about 56 days because I started the applications four days ago and completed payment. Don't want to lose money for nothing.
So you have 15 full months left on your passport. In that case, they will probably charge you the penalty (an additional R400, on top of the usual R400 application fee) as they do with lost or stolen passports.mine expires in March 2023

They may also insist that you hand over your existing passport, unless you tell them it was lost - in which case you'll have two valid passports!
Alas, not for long ...
My son ran into the same issue. Nowhere to print the barcoded form.I managed to go through the whole process , Paying everything, when applying for re -issue of passport and Id. Everything being successful seeing that we will visit the Home affaires offices directly.
I am supposed to get a Barcoded Proof of application that is printable that needs to be taking to the branch. My question????????? Where do I print it? no option nothing for printing or downloading ?
Anybody please ?
