The first stage of our process is perhaps one of the most important. Having assessed your situation we will write to you and discuss exactly what type of visa you will be applying for. If a formal telephone, Skype or face-to-face consultation is required we will notify you in advance. During your consultation with our professionals and lawyers, we will discuss your personal situation and personal requirements. We will talk you through the exact documents that you will need for the application process and how you can go about obtaining them. The documents that you will need will of course differ on a case by case basis.

The second stage of our service involves the quality assurance and submission of your application. This will involve the gathering of your documents, as well as other information such as letters of motivation and letters of reference. We will go through your entire application to ensure that everything is compiled correctly for submission at Home Affairs which will ensure the greatest chance of success. When your application has been approved we will inform you of that.

At this point we will be constantly tracking your application, so you can be assured that it is the best possible hands. Visa submissions will normally take around 30 to 45 days and residence permits around a year. If it takes any longer, or if your application is denied, we will provide the option to appeal the decision and if necessary approach the high court. If you are approved then you will be able to pick up the visa at our office, or we will have it couriered to you.
