Important things you need to know about the Immigration law changes
The Department of Home Affairs has recently drafted new immigration rules to be brought into effect as from 1st June 2014
VFS Global has been contracted by the Department of Home Affairs to act as a 3rd party by opening various visa application centres across South Africa. The VFS visa application centres will be responsible for accepting foreign national’s visa applications and foreign nationals would need to appear in person when submitting an application. The Department of Home Affairs will no longer accept applications at regional offices.
VFS Visa application centres will have offices in the following areas in South Africa;
1. Cape Town
9. Port Elizabeth
It has been made clear that processing times of visa/permits would initially be slow-moving and foreigners are asked to be patient throughout the teething phase.
