contractual dispute

Spokesperson Siya Qoza says the department apologises for the disturbance caused by the one-day delay.

The Department of Home Affairs says there is a contractual dispute between themselves and the courier company SkyNet.

Spokesperson Siya Qoza says the service provider had suspended their services on 6 April but the issue has been resolved.

The service provider is providing a service of moving documents from our printing facility to our offices. When they suspended the services they were not clearing the passports.

Siya Qoza, Spokesperson - Department of Home Affairs 

The department does not owe SkyNet at the moment.
