Why you Should use an Immigration Expert
Trying to navigate your way through the South African Immigration environment is not the easiest of tasks. Many people who intend moving here find that they end up frustrated with the Department of Home Affairs.
Why Does This Happen?
• The officials do not always give you the advice that you need to have in order to plan the relocation, nor do they assess you correctly and they do not offer you alternative options.
• Bad communication is a huge problem. Trying to contact Embassies, High Commissions or the Consulates is not an easy thing to do. Getting hold of the correct people by phone or by email is almost impossible.
• The information that you do get is often not correct or you only get half of the information that you actually need.
• Government services around the world are known for not offering the best or friendliest of services.
Because of these problems, many people end up looking for advice from blogs, other websites and friends. There are some dangers involved with doing this:
• A lot of the information that you will find on websites is not always updated and you will only be getting some of the information that you need.
• All the consulates approaches will not be the same.
• People’s positions differ from one another and following the advice that you see online might end up making you more confused than ever.
Although blogs and websites may well give you some of the information that you need, you need to understand that immigration information is constantly changing and you could be getting all the incorrect information from them.
The two Options That you Have
Do it yourself
Some people have managed to do everything by themselves. If you can get it right, you will save some money. You will also need to stand in long queues and fill out more forms than you can imagine. The biggest problem people have when trying to do things by themselves is when they are unsure of what to do next, they do not get the help that they need.

You will have peace of mind knowing that you have someone to do the work for you. Should you need any advice, you can be sure that your call will be answered and you will be given advice that you can trust.
