A growing number of Australian based businesses are actively seeking to enter the South African market utilising Australian management and staff who require South African Work and Residence permits in various categories.

Many applicants who apply for these permits are frustrated by the complexity and time consuming nature of the process, as South African immigration regulations, procedures and policies are highly complex and change on a regular basis. As a consequence many self initiated DIY permit applications are unsuccessful.
