Here we get to know Giulia a little better. If you’d like to speak to her about immigrating to South Africa, please see her contact details at the end of the article.
Q: You have been with Intergate for five months now. How has the journey been so far?
A: It has been a heavy learning curve, as I am new to the industry. It teaches you to think laterally and stay on your toes.
Q: What excites you most about working in immigration?
A: It will probably sound like a cliché, but being able to help people realize their dreams and immigrate to South Africa is very rewarding. You create good connections with your clients and go on the journey with them.
Q: What is the most common mistake you see migrants making? And how can anyone avoid it?
A: Leaving it too late. People have no concept regarding how long some applications can take or what is involved – I would recommend that you begin looking into your options a year or so before your planned departure, especially if it is a critical skill visa as these can take a very long time depending on the professional body.
Q: What do you love most about South Africa?
A: I love the diversity and chaos. There is always something to do, see or be involved in and the people are good-natured and kind.
Q: Name one place you’d say everyone has to visit at least once in South Africa?
A: The Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town. Go stick your head in the clown fish tank!
Q: How can anyone interested in immigration to South Africa contact you?
If you had a warning label, what would yours say? Flammable
What is one thing you’ll never do again? Hike lions head without eating first, from the wrong starting point. It took 5 hours and I almost lay down in the grass and wished for death.
Who is your hero? Batman. Because, Batman.
