Intergate have attended the presentations that were held for all registered immigration practitioners in Cape Town and Johannesburg and you can read the full report here.
The highlights include:
No longer will applications be made at regional departmental offices but at dedicated Visa application centres (VAC’s)
As the Intergate Group run 3 visa application centres in South Africa for the German missions we are well aware of the advantages these can bring and the aim of these VAC’s is for:
- Better processing times
- An inviting environment
- Increased efficiency
- Better reporting
We welcome there arrival (tentatively June or July 2014) and whilst an extra fee will be payable for their use believe this to be a small price to pay if there intended objectives materialise.
