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.

How are our appointments carried out

In the current times you might prefer that we don't visit your house in person to carry out a survey. This is fully understandable and we can just as easily undertake the survey by video call, using whatever method you're comfortable with, usually FaceTime or WhatsApp.

Helpful and accommodating

I have completed the online survey but also wanted to thank you for the support you gave me in arranging my house move. At all times you were very helpful and accommodating especially when sorting the move down to Sussex.

I would like to thank Paul and Alan who packed me up on 31/03/2021 and Darren S, Darren G, Rob and Ian who travelled to Sussex and unpacked us.  They were all great workers and very thoughtful throughout.

Thank you all again.
