I have eventually received my Visa this morning after the 3rd try and it is valid and correct. Luckily it has now been issued for a whole year so any travel to Europe over the next year will be a bit easier. The travel agent did manage to screw up my travel date so now I will be traveling a day earlier (Sunday, 20th) and stay one day longer in Copenhagen. Will have to work in some sightseeing.
I have to be at the airport at some un-godly hour on Sunday morning — 7am flight out of Cape Town. And I am landing back in Cape Town at just an un-godly hour. Saturday morning at 5am.
