How Refugees can apply for Permanent Residency
Each day New World Immigration receives calls from refugee permit holders wishing to apply for permanent residency in South Africa but to our knowledge it seems most of these applicants have no clue where to begin as the process is quite difficult to get going.
So how does a refugee permit holder qualify for permanent residency?
A refugee may apply for permanent residence after he/she has completed 5 years on a refugee permit in South Africa.
Before you submit an application for permanent residency, you need to have your verification letter verified and you would need to write a motivational letter to the refugee standing committee explaining why you would like to apply for permanent residency. Once your request has been approved, then only may you apply for permanent residency.
New World Immigration can assist you once you have received the approval from the refugee standing committee. Call our friendly consultants if you qualify and let us assist you in preparing your application for permanent residency or visit www.nwivisas.com for more information.
