Backlog for temporary residence applications (Cape Town)


Does anyone know what the current backlog is for temporary residence applications?

I submitted my life partner permit application on 27 December Protected content the Cape Town Barrack Street Home Affairs office. I've recently learned that Cape Town HA sent my application to Pretoria on 10th Feb Protected content Pretoria received it on 11th March. It's still pending.

I have managed to secure a job starting on 1st May. My concern is that I won't get my life partner permit in time to then make a further application to get a work endorsement before 1st May. I didn't have a job offer at the time of submitting my life partner permit application back in December.

Does anyone have any experience of this?
