Lifting Declaration Of Undesirability – The Ban

Challenges on lifting declaration of undesirability at international airports and ports of entry upon departure to return to South Africa.

In this regard Legal Immigration Services will act on your behalf and liaise with the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) to lift the ban.

In most cases, the relevant department at DHA is the “deportation section” who are totally understaffed and overwhelmed with requests to lift bans. There is much frustration as the lack of efficiency translates into an inability to make proper contact with the relevant officials and even in the remote chance that communication is made, there is little attention being paid to the matter.

In all these cases we would attend on court with the benefit of our legal associates who would procure a court order either on an urgent basis or non-urgent and see to it that such foreign person can safely return to South Africa.
