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.

The crew were fantastic

The crew were fantastic, I can’t rate them highly enough. Polite, happy, friendly, careful, courteous & very hard working. Used the company for its Google search & good reviews. Very helpful, friendly yet professional. 

Marie Clarke

All 5 removal men were very professional and hard working

All 5 removal men were very professional and hard working, we really appreciated the extra mile that they constantly went to. Made our daughter feel very safe and she made a friend for life (Lee). Used the company because you were the cheapest quote.

Dan Oxley

The crew were amazing, professional and experienced

The crew were amazing, professional and experienced. Fantastic. Made the move as stress free as it could be. I would 100% recommend everyone I spoke to and met. It went so well. There was another move on the same day as mine, another company, cheaper. It did not go well. The guys that moved us were fabulous, supportive right until the end.
