What you need to know about upcoming changes in immigration law

As you might know the South African immigration regulations are going to change soon.

The Department of Home Affairs has contracted an external company (VFS Global) to open visa application centres (VAC) across South Africa.

That means that in future foreign nationals have to appear in person at VFS centres to submit their applications and biometric data. They will no longer submit their applications to the regional offices of the Department of Home Affairs.

The new VACs will open in Cape Town, Durban, George, Johannesburg, Kimberley, Mangaung, Nelspruit, Polokwane, Port Elizabeth, Rustenburg and Pretoria.

There will be slow processing times in the early days of adoption, for that reason businesses and foreign nationals should anticipate delays and challenges during the implementation phase.
