Lesotho Special Permits come to an end

Home affairs says it’s given Basotho nationals enough time to regularise their stay in SA and no further extension will be allowed.

Despite requests for an extension of the Lesotho Special Permit (LSP) by members of the Basotho community living in South Africa, the home affairs department on Friday said the application phase under the special dispensation would not be extended again.
