The new immigration law has had a profound effect on the thousands of foreign nationals already living in South Africa, and those looking to come to South Africa and secure employment.
Although change in the immigration legal framework was necessary for a number of reasons (marriage of convenience, child trafficking, and corruption at Home Affairs) the processes which the Department of Home Affairs has chosen, have proven to be greatly misguided. This has repeatedly been seen over the past 2 weeks and has fortunately also been picked up by the media.
Once these issues have been resolved, however, it will be more important than ever for immigration consultancies to provide a sensible, honest and transparent service.
A number of immigration agents will not be able to cope with the changes and their claims that the laws are unconstitutional are based mainly on the fact that they will not be able to adapt. “Making a plan” by making false claims in applications, abusing legal loopholes, or worse by misinforming clients knowing full well that these do not qualify for a visa, will be less likely and immigration service providers will need to start adding real value instead of exploiting the system.
So, what should candidates do who are looking for a job in South Africa and who will require a visa?
Update your CV. Also ensure that it looks professional. If you require templates of professional looking CVs contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Visit the Initiate International website and confirm whether you fall within one of the specialist fields. If so, submit your CV on the website and our recruitment department will review your CV and will contact you of any openings.
As soon as you have submitted your CV, contact Initiate Immigration to discuss your visa options (email@example.com).
You will find that many companies in South Africa do not know what the requirements are to apply for a work visa. What we offer is to prepare an overview for you of your options, what the company would need to provide, and how Initiate Immigration (Pty) Ltd would guide and assist all parties through the visa process.
Our consultants will also advise which steps you can take to make your job application more attractive and increase the chances of securing a job offer.
Having a recruitment and immigration department allows our (prospective) clients to be advised by experts that have experience in both fields.
