Working with an immigration consultant

“Hang in there” versus working with an immigration consultant

You might ask yourself what the role of the immigration consultant is during the visa application process in South Africa. Immigration consultants take the stress out of your visa application and accompany you during the entire process, making sure you have expert assistance during the entire procedure: Advising you on the best visa or permit option, compiling your application, checking up on the status of your application on a regular basis and once approved, collecting the result.

immigration consultant
Applying for the visa
  • Certified immigration practitioners help to find the fastest and most cost-effective solution to suit your individual situation.
  • You dig through information found on the internet or queue to speak to an official at VFS to discover the different visa requirements.
  • Applications are compiled according to the Immigration Act of South Africa. Standardising applications makes it easier for officials to process and approve applications.
  • You compile your application according to what you think maybe is right, and not necessarily speaking to the required information.
  • Our DHA and VFS Liaisons are in good standing with the officials and check up on the progress of applications on a regular basis in person.
  • Once your application has been handed in, you need to contact the call centre number for progress updates yourself.

Should you have any questions with regard to processes and procedures of your South African permit application please contact one of our immigration consultants at Initiate Immigration.
