Complaint / review text:
I am 18 years old. I went to bellville home affairs to change my surname due to personal reasons. Three months later and i have not heard anything. I went back and i was told that it can take up to a year to change my surname. A panel must decide on my change of surname. I paid them for the change. It is my personal choice to change my surname. They dont know my personal reasons. Why must it take a year? I want to start my adult life with my new surname. I have to wait a year to start my new life.
