  • SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT ISSUED CERTIFICATES

    These services, as it related to the reissuing of documentation by the Department, are often time not considered a high priority item coupled with the substantial backlog, processing times can be as long as 6 – 18 months. Where you use a service provider to assist and facilitate a proactive follow up process with such application, processing times are significantly shorter.

General Work Visa

General Work Visa

A General Work Visa may be issued to any foreign national who intends to take up employment in South Africa on the basis of a firm offer of employment. The amendment of the Immigration Act in 2014, saw the introduction of a Department of Labour Certificate process for those who wish to apply for a General Work Visa and this includes applications for renewals.

Corporate Visa

Corporate Visa

A Corporate Visa is a temporary work authorisation granted not to a foreign employee, but to a corporate entity (e.g. a mine) to employ a pre-determined number of skilled/semi-skilled/unskilled workers. This visa enables a corporate applicant to employ a large number of foreign nationals for a specific period.

Permanent Residency Permit

Permanent Residency Permit

Law change to discontinue Permanent Residency is imminent. If you are interested in applying, now is the time. Applications for permanent residency in South Africa are considered in terms of Section 26 (Direct Residency Permits) and Section 27 (Residency-on-Other-Grounds Permits) of the Immigration Act 2002 (Act No 13 of 2002) and read with Regulation 33 of the Immigration Regulations.

Testimonials

I just came back from my visa application appointment at VFS with Sue-Allan. I wanted to share how amazing, sweet, and kind she was. I’ve been so nervous and stressed about this process and she held my hand and explained every step of the way. Honestly the best experience I’ve ever had with a visa process (and I’ve had quite a few)

Xpatweb Client

I was assisted by multiple people at this organisation and all of them knew the process well. They were more than happy to help on queries, exceptions, follow ups etc. I was seeking work permit from SA and their documentation was splendid (even VFS said its fool proof). Highly recommended set of professionals.

Utsav Mistry

I am so happy to see my visa in my hands with so much speed. My sincere thanks for the incredible service support your company gave towards my visa application. Ever since I started consulting your firm 5 years ago, I have been well served with great care.

Engineer at large Information Technology Company

My family and I have received the most excellent services from Xpatweb during the process of obtaining permits (Work permit, study permits, dependent permits and now permanent residents permit, including applying for IDs). We have been treated with patience, respect and diligence.

We have always received exceptional service from Xpatweb. Echoing the sentiments of my fellow colleagues that has interacted with you. Your portfolio of work is very difficult in general, however from a client’s perspective it’s extremely personal as well and to have your consultants to always be professional, always smiling, always helpful self has truly been a joy.

Jacques Calvert

My agent and guardian angel was Mpho Ndimande, I would like to say I am exceptionally pleased with her services that she provided me during the tough and stressful times that one would experience dealing with DHA, she is very well informed and was always willing to assist with any query I had at any given time. I must commend her effort in going that extra mile to ensure that her clients have peace of mind.

Her team went above and beyond their calling to accommodate me and for that, I am very grateful. I will highly recommend Xpatweb to anyone who wishes to have a peaceful sleep at night, knowing that you will be in good hands.

They respond quickly and efficiently and not only helping me obtaining the visa I needed but also in their services to help obtain all the supporting documents that are required for the process. To all those reading this testimonial, take my word for it and choose Xpatweb to assist you in the process. The only outcome from their service quality is smiles from ear to ear.
