Wavier Applications In Terms Of Section 31(2)(c)
There are times when it would be in our client’s best interests to launch an application for a waiver on the DHA based on “good cause” to bring relief and provide permission to the client to waive the need to comply with certain subordinate legalization that would include the obligations in terms of the 2014 immigration Regulations.
Good Cause In Terms Of Section 32
Where a foreign person has for some reason “beyond his or her control” overstayed his visa in South Africa he or she may approach the DHA offices and engage with the DHA immigration officers to condone the overstay and provide permission in the form of Form 20 to remain in South Africa and apply for a further status in the country.
It is advisable to engage with professionals in this regard to avoid being confronted by unreasonable officials who seek to arbitrarily detain and or charge or even deport foreign persons when they have the right to apply for good cause.
