Immigration to South Africa
Every year, more and more people immigrate to South Africa, from all over the world. It has become a very attractive destination, with its astounding quality of life and solid business environment, despite what the media may report.
The Republic of South Africa (RSA) has a well-developed and intricate process for handling those wishing to apply for visas or permits to enter the country. However, this process is full of difficult and sometimes extremely complex procedures, forms and rules. Generally, very few people complete immigration applications on their own – they use immigration lawyers or consultants. If they do it on their own, they should use one of our immigration guides to be sure they do not encounter issues later on. This is true whether you are applying for anything from a relative’s visa to permanent residence.
