The South African immigration legislation is relatively complex.
According to our experiences, many foreigners are easily confused about the different ways one can immigrate to
South Africa.

Just one of the reasons is that naturally not everyone has the time, nor the understanding of the South African Immigration Act. Furthermore, there are many different interpretations of these regulations which can lead to misunderstanding.

For your better understanding, our partners Imcosa have compiled a comprehensive information brochure, which will hopefully answer your initial questions. Please feel free to contact us at any stage, whether it is related to feedback, advice or positive changes.
