Dear Client,

South Africa is in a Presidential ordered “lockdown” until 16 April 2020.

  • DIRCO, SAQA, VFS and the Courts are closed.
  • The Department of Home affairs is working on skeleton staff, we expect no movement on new or pending applications.
  • The DHA have advised that foreign nationals will not be penalised on their visa conditions as long as the breach of visa conditions is a result of the lockdown.
  • The SAPS police clearance department, currently, is open and accepting, processing and issuing police clearances. This is subject to change at any time.

Please feel free to call or email us with regards to the services and support we can provide for you during the lockdown period. Our office remains open with staff working remotely respecting and adhering to Government directives.

We will post updates as and when we receive clarification on our usual product offering.
