SA Migration International

SA Migration International was created out of the need for a specialist organization to assist people wishing to immigrate, volunteer, work, bring family, study or open businesses in South Africa.

We will guide you through the entire process to require the appropriate permit. Once we confirm that you will qualify for the visa, we will guarantee you a successful application. This is normally done in the first consultation - which is for free.

27. Oct. 2018 Tourism Update

Is history repeating itself with unabridged birth certificates? South Africa faces an embarrassment of spectacular proportions as publicity about the new birth certificate regime gives the impression that immigration officials are relaxing requirements.
