Most days on the way to work I walk past home affairs in Cape Town on Barrack street.

The queue lengths vary considerably.

If anyone wants to know what they look like on a particular day feel free to send me a direct message. Ill carry on doing this and try be helpful until it becomes an absolute pain.

Is there a pattern with certain days consistently having shorter queues?
The only pattern I have noticed is that on insanely busy days the next day its completely empty.

Late afternoon also seems much better than first thing in the morning.

This thread caused a flashback to my torrid past, Use to help my China's bribe officials way back....

Well, I found a great solution: I parked at the Portswood parkade at the V&A (3CV9+96 Cape Town), and then Ubered to & from Barrack St.

Parking for 3 hours cost R15, and Uber was R80 in total, but very worth it for the hassle-free factor. On top of that, the parkade has a carwash, so the Rangie got a much-needed scrub down for R95 while it was parked.

There is a parkade in Corporation st, one block from DHA.

Wow, what a waste of money and time.

There is plenty parking around the DHA. You could park in Harrington street or near fruit & veg which is literally a block or two away. Parking in Canterbury street too. There's also a paid parking garage in Buitenkant street.

R95 a waste of money? lol, that's not even half of my daily wine spend

Didn't know about the one on Buitenkant, I may try that next time.
