South Africa visa information

Before you book your removal to South Africa, you need to make sure your residence and work visas are in place. To move permanently to South Africa and to get a visa, you will need to fall into one of the applicable groupings that the South African government has determined.

This information should not be considered emigration advice, and visa information can and does change. For professional advice and the most up-to-date information, we suggest you contact a qualified migration specialist or the South Africa Department of Home Affairs.

Fantastic.  Tyler and the team (and there were many over the three days) were positive and professional throughout.  They dealt with a nervous buyer with great empathy and always tried to put me at ease.  They were enthusiastic, positive and professional.  Thank you so much.

Kim, Matthew, and Darren were delightful. They were efficient, friendly, and considerate. Kim went above and beyond to make sure that all of our essentials (keys, dog food, phones) were set aside. When unpacking, we noticed how carefully wrapped the items were. Everyone was very patient with our dog who was keen to get in their way.
