A South African spouse and life partner visa enables a husband, wife or long term partner of a South African resident to immigrate successfully to South Africa. The immigration process takes place via a spouse or life partner visa on the basis of their relationship.

  • When preparing for a spousal visa extension it is really just about ensuring that you apply before there are 60 days remaining on your current visa.
