The Minister of Home Affairs, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, is scheduled to officially open a new Home Affairs office at the Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in Tshwane on 6 March 2023.

This is in fulfillment of a commitment to making Home Affairs services more accessible to people. The new office will offer application and collections services for IDs and passports. Clients will have the convenience of applying for these services when they visit the center for their shopping.

Home Affairs Menlyn Office is expected to take off pressure from high-volume offices around Tshwane, such as Byron’s Place in the city center, Mamelodi and Centurion.

The Department of Home Affairs has signed a mutually beneficial partnership with the owners of the Menlyn Park Shopping Centre. This partnership is expected to blossom.
