Good morning Vincent,

I collected my permanent residence permit at Durban VFS on Friday afternoon.

I would like to thank Integrate and you personally for all your support throughout this long journey so far, I don’t think I could have done it without you.

Thank you very much!


Hi Faranaaz,

Thanks so much for your email and for letting me know the process. I went and collected my new visa on Monday, it was wonderfully quick and easy.

Thank you so much for all your help in preparing and processing my application. It was so quick and easy and stress-free, I’m so grateful and will continue to recommend Intergate to family and friends.

Wishing you all the very best in the future. Thanks again.

Kind regards,

Good afternoon F. Petersen,

The service I received at VFS and from your company is total 100 percent good! I have no complaints and I’m glad about service I received from your staff in Rivonia.


Good afternoon Devon,

I want to thank you very much for your help and all the work you did for my Visa application.

I know it is your job, but nevertheless, thanks a lot!!!

I also want to thank Lionel for his help last Friday. Unfortunately we missed at the end of the session and I could not say goodbye to him. Please hand over my thanks to him.

Once again, thanks very much and hope to see you some time next year

Kind regards,


Hello Flonique,

Thanks, it is what we needed, again you are the best. At one time, if you are located in Cape Town, I will stop by and present myself.

Kind regards


Hi Katja,

Fully noted and thank you for the information.

I will contact the relevant person after receiving the details from Faranaaz and we will then go ahead with what is needed when that point arrives.

Once again, we will be making use of your services for any future visa requirements as the service was excellent.

Kind Regads,

Dear Amhaalh,

This email is to express our gratitude and appreciation for your assistance helping us to attain our Retirement Visa and our Pet Permit.

Undoubtedly there are many moving parts with complex timelines that create a great deal of stress.

Our phone call today addressed all our concerns and greatly relieved our anxiety.

We will sleep better tonight because of your reassurance that all the pieces are coming together.

Thank you again.

Kind regards,


Thank you Faranaaz,

Very clear email. I just wanted to highlight that Nelly is doing a wonderful job and she is so organised and on top of her job because I was so stressed by the whole thing when iI got there (missing bank statements etc) – it was such a relief to then have someone organise everything for you = she was such a breathe of fresh air.

Best Regards


Good evening Flonique,

I received my work visa today!

Thank you very much for all your support, you did a really good job and I really can just recommend your effort and service!

Thank you very much

Best regards

Dear Devon,

Perfect translation, and perfect replies to my enquiries, many thanks!

Let me also add on this occasion, your replies are always to the point, very speedy and clear to me, and you seem to be fully tuned in to my reasoning. I find that quite outstanding!

Friendly Greetings,


Hi Lionel

I went to VFS this morning and collected my Permanent Residence certificate – my application was successful.

Many thanks to everyone at Intergate for their help. I am very happy with the value-for-money service I received.

Kind regards,


Hi Vincent,

Thank you for your congratulations on getting my PR visa.

The only reason we left SA was due to the time it took for the PR visa to be approved which was 32 months from when we submitted our application.

This is not the fault of Intergate or your team in any way whatsoever, but solely lies with the SA Immigration Approval system.

Finally I would like to thank Benita, Lionel and all your staff and especially yourself for providing an excellent and most professional service with all our visa requirements. You and your team have been just “outstanding” in all aspects from the professionalism and cleanliness of your Cape Town office, the advice given by your team and the assistance in helping me to submit my applications correctly together with all the required supporting documents. There is no way I would have been able to acquire any visa without your support.

I sincerely thank you for assisting me in every way.


Keith L. Jones

Hi Jaime,

Thank you so much! You have not only saved me money, provided useful information and excellent service delivery, but you have also gone up and above the call of duty.

I will undoubtedly use your services when Jessica arrives, and I will also recommend your services to my company since we do a lot of work internationally, as well as my family.

We will sort this letter of non-impediment out, and once we’re married, I’ll be in touch with you again. Looking at about end of September, but it may be earlier.

Thanks again for all of your help, Jaime.

You’re a legend.

Kind regards,

Dear Celeste ,

I am writing this to thank you for your assistance during the rush hours last week. I was really disappointed after 4 years waiting for DHA ‘s response. honestly I was walking to your office only to give copy of DHA’s outcome for filing purpose only . But you came in the right time , giving me the hope again by the way you approached and the enthusiasm to convince me.

For the moment I said for myself no need to appeal as who will do the follow up and then I have to wait another 4 years to hear from the concern authority. and now my appeal reached DHA and this because of you.

Celeste , your creative thinking and dedication is an asset and I must say , truly ” thank you indeed ” and I would like this email to reach the firm executives as recommendation from my end. wish you all the best and good luck.

Also I would like to thank Nabila for her help and support as well the lady who shared her HOTSPOT wifi with me that morning ” sorry i cant remember her name”

Zak Khateeb

Hi Giulia,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Intergate and you in particular for the smooth experience with the whole process.

I know these applications can be complicated, confusing, frustrating and very time sensitive. There are a lot of things that can go wrong very easily and the effects can be very serious. You guys made it so much easier and simpler.

Also the sheer professionalism from whoever I interacted with did really impress me.

Thank you again Intergate and the whole team!

Kind regards,


Dear Gawa

We would like to express our deepest gratitude for your assistance. We found the process of application trouble free and pleasant.

Nellie was also there punctually to assist us professionally and with such kindness and friendliness.

Thank you also for the patience and kindness which you have displayed towards us in all these months.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Kind Regards

Good afternoon Celeste and Giulia,

Just letting you know everything went perfectly smoothly at VFS this afternoon. Neli was absolutely fabulous. She was most helpful and made the process completely stress free.

Hope you have a wonderful day.


Hello Faranaaz,

I just wanted to let you know that I received my passport yesterday with my visa!

Many, many thanks for you help in this process. You have been pleasure to work with and made what would have been a very stressful and difficult task quite straightforward.

I am very happy with Intergate and your service in particular.

Kind regards,

Hi Kelly and Intergate Team,

We as a family express our gratitude to the Intergate team, especially Kelly for the professional support and guidance we got for my wife’s PR application. Kelly’s solid knowledge of the immigration law helped us multiple times and she was more than willing to help at all times. In spite of her busy schedule serving multiple clients, she always answered our phone calls. You are a star.

We also would like to express our Thank You to Mehnaz for the documentation help & special note of Thank You to Lionel who made our VFS experience a smooth ride with his cool yet professional approach.

Past experience we had with immigration lawyers in South Africa was great only till the point they got our EFT. Intergate is different, truly professional from beginning to outcome. All our best wishes to you guys.

Best Regards,


Hi Jaime,

Thank you very much for your input. I didn’t quite understand how it worked moving from a study visa to a tourist visa. Also wanted to tell you that Kelly has been doing a great job managing the visa/PR so far, very happy with Intergate’s services.



Good morning Sadé,

Working with you and Faranaaz has been rewarding even though I can not go to completion. My thanks for the excellent business decorum you have represented to me. If appropriate, I would like to write to whomever is your ‘boss’ and tell her/him of how well the Cape Town office functioned regardless that I was 10,000 miles + away and give accolades to your business sensitivity and professionalism.

I have a sense of sadness since in a short period of time I have grown not only to like you Sadé but have great respect as to how you handle business matters. Let me know if I should do anything further.



Hi Vincent,

We would like to thank Intergate Immigration for all the efforts and assistance regarding obtaining our business permit within 6 months and more important our PRP within 18 months. Highly appreciated and very professional!

Hartelijke groeten, Jan & Jeannine

Dear Bianca

I would like to say a big thank you to Intergate for the very good service I received. Chose your company because my initial contact with Jaime, who was so friendly and helpful, then yourself as my Administrator was again a pleasure to deal with and for the company of Lionel yesterday who helped in passing four hours !!!!

A big thank you to all three of you – would certainly recommend your company.

Kind regards,

Dear Vincent

Would like to thank you and your team for the work done in obtaining my permanent residence and guiding me and making absolutely sure we had all the correct documentation.

This is usually a very painful experience but using Intergate was so smooth and stress free, Amazing customer service!!


Hi Bianca

I am very very pleased to say that both Hellen and myself have received our Work Permit and accompanying spouse permit……

We are absolutely over the moon that we can now get on with our lives and I can concentrate in building the business in South Africa. I would like to thank you and everyone at Intergate for putting up with my grumpiness from time to time and getting me the result.

Best Regards

Hi Jaime

Hope you don’t mind me emailing! Just to say everyone in Help Desk has been wonderful and dealing with me stressing. Please thank the team for their kindness!

Thank you for being there for me.

Kind regards,



Yes we are very happy 🙂

And we are so pleased with you and Intergate! Thank you so much.

We recommend your services to everyone!!

I gave your contact details to a friend of mine today. So she may contact you.

Hope you have a good weekend.

All the best.

Kind regards

Leandra, I just wanted to let you know that we got my mom’s visa this week! Thanks to you and your team for the great help (and patience) as we wrangled paper and police clearances back in the US. (I’ve also –just this week–given your company my best reference to some colleagues whom I didn’t know were considering also applying for retirement visas also.)

Thank you again for your great work!

Don and Fatima

Dear Leandra and Jamie,

Just to confirm that today, we have received our passports back from VFS Global.

We intend to arrive back in South Africa towards the end of October 2018, when we would like to start the process of applying for Permanent Residence.

We would appreciate it, if you could advise us with regards to the requirements, options, the process and costs involved.

We would like to say thank you to Intergate for a great Customer Service and thanks in particular to Leandra for her attention to detail and prompt responses.

Kind regards

Dagmar and Michael

Hello Team Intergate.
We have received Jason’s spousal visa today. There were no problems with the application at the embassy; in fact they commented that they had more information than needed to process the visa and everything was correct.
Thank you to the entire team for helping and answering all our million questions and for guiding us through this process; responses were always very prompt and clear and it made this process very easy.
We arrive in Cape Town next week Tuesday evening!
Andre & Jason

To all the staff at Intergate and all who had a part in the recent Visa renewal process, I would like to say a big THANK YOU!

I have just returned from submitting all of the paper work and everything went very smoothly. Everything was in order. Nothing was missing. No questions were asked.

Thank you for your part in helping to get this submitted so that I can stay here in serve the Lord with my family teaching the children from God’s Word.

May each of you have a blessed Easter, celebrating the living Saviour!

God bless you,


Dear Celeste and Jaime

Thank you so much !! I am over the moon. I got my 5 year visa extension. May I place a testimonial on your page? I am so happy with your service it’s unbelievable. I’m going to work with you for my Permanent Residency application as well.

Thank you so much. I’m really happy.


Good day!

I would like to say thank you for your service which has been amazing and an effective result in just a few weeks. Fantastic.

I am looking forward to the next step in 12 months.

Kind regards!


Hi Jaime,

I recently did my Spousal Visa with Intergate Immigration – which I was really happy with. I am now looking for a job, already had a job interview and I am good hopes I will get the position.

Can you please let me know how much it will cost to get my work permit sorted with Intergate?


When it comes to dealing with government bureaucracy, I am not a ‘do-it-yourself’ person; if I want to get it right first time, I believe in getting professional advice.

I found several companies advertising their capabilities on the internet, two of which stood out from all the others, at least in my opinion.  But the first company wanted too much personal information before they would contact me, so late that evening, I submitted a basic query to the second, Intergate Immigration Services.

The next morning, at 06:28, I received a personal mail from Jaime Catala.  I was impressed with his prompt out-of-hours response, and after a couple of clarification meetings, I signed an agreement to have Intergate manage my temporary residence application.  

I was delighted to learn that the visa was issued on 15 December and, after a short delay in arranging for receipt of the courier, was available to me on Christmas Eve.  It was a most welcome Christmas present.

Was the cost of using an immigration consultant justified? In my case, it certainly was, especially when it involved proving capital and income requirements.

Would I recommend Intergate Immigration Services for a similar assignment? Definitely.

Len Blackwood

Dear Jaime,

Perfect plan and the pleasure is completely ours.

This is also the perfect timing for us to hugely thank you for your excellent pre-sales, startup and follow up support during this challenging and at the same time very interesting immigration process! 🙂

Enjoy your weekend too and all the best from the both of us,

Koen and Robyn Wouters

Morning Jaime

Many thanks for message. Received visa on time and without any difficulties. Mother and baby arrived without any complications – immigration ( OR Tambo) formalities were smooth. I only got to my emails this morning as took few days off to be with family.

Once again many thanks.


Dear Intergate,

Yes, I have already left South Africa so I won’t be needing a renewal.

Thank you for everything your company did during my time in South Africa. You made the process as easy as it can be and I very much appreciated it.

Wish you all the best. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Kind regards,


Dear Leandra, Gerhard and Vincent,

After the submission of my FI Visa application I reviewed (for myself) the whole process of cooperation with Intergate Immigration and
I want to make a firm statement regarding this cooperation with you 3 ‘guys’.

I was really positively surprised and absolutely satisfied by your performances. All of you 3 were very professional and result oriented.


It was very easy and efficient (which I had not expected upfront, to be honest) to communicate with you ‘guys. Follow up from your side was always very prompt and to the point.

I am pretty confident that my FI Visa will be delivered by the Department of Home Affairs within the estimated time frame 😉

It was a pleasure working with you and if wanted I will be very happy to advocate your services to your potential future customers.

Looking forward to work with you again in the (near) future when the application process for my partner comes into the active phase.

Warm regards,


Jaime was the first person I spoke to at Intergate, and I was quite quickly convinced that I needed to use their service based on his ability to adeptly answer my questions and direct me to all necessary resources. I was constantly impressed by his stellar customer service – he was always very responsive when I needed any assistance and made sure to clearly explain each step of the process.

When I ran into some difficulties, Jaime immediately jumped in to make sure I was taken care of, and I very much appreciated his honesty, communication, and dedication to ensuring that I got the best service possible.

Thank you for the great work, Jaime! It is much appreciated, and I am looking forward to my continued stay in South Africa because of it.

Amy Montalvo

Dear Jaime,

Thank for your professionalism in this matter. I will be recommending your company to others in the future if needed.

Kind regards,



I wanna thank you for all the help you rendered to me from day one up to this day when I have my Passport with a Permit in it, it eventually got granted and I wanna thank you for all your support as I didn’t know when and where to start until I came across your details online and made a choice that you’d make things happen for me.

I want you to know that as soon as I can I’ll wanna start applying for Permanent Residency and Integrate are my chosen People again. Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend.


Hi Celeste,

May I please take the opportunity to thank YOU and the entire team of Intergate for such an incredible support and outstanding work.

You and Intergate and all the people involved got me after 10 months that far that we finally could submit my work visa application.

With all your effort you made it after all seem like it was a “walk in the Park”.

I know it was not because a lot of work had to be done but YOU and ENTIRE Intergate made it happen.
Again I wanna thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing such a good service.

I huge Thank you also to Pinky who was guiding me through the procedure at the VFS in a really pleasant manner. With such a hectic Friday like today and other clients she had to deal with, she kept calm and had always a smile on her face.

I wish more people in SA would provide such an outstanding service even when it gets a bit hectic.
SA would clearly make a huge step forward.

Thank you all again and please have an amazing weekend.

God bless you all.

Kind Regards,
Sven Hering

I’m very glad to have used your services. Noelinda’s work was very efficient – over and above what I expected. She kept my mind at peace during the whole process. Many thanks to Gerard also for his smooth running of the VFS offices. You have a very good team. Nothing to suggest.


Hi Taryn & Vincent,

Honestly i am very excited to receive this Permit.

All your hard work is noted and i really trust in your Agency office and would recommend new business to you with no hesitations.
I would also like to use your services for Permanent Residence Application as well.
Have a lovely weekend i will definitely be celebrating this outcome 🙂

I have sent it to the HR at work and they are highly pleased.

Kind Regards,


Hi Nick,

May I congratulate you on your staff’s professionalism and excellent communications. We had considered doing the applications alone but have every confidence that everything will go smoothly and take the pressure and stress out of doing it ourselves.

Kind regards


Good day,

I just want to thank Lynne and everyone from Intergate for their great job and dedication and for having helped to make this dream possible for me.

I am very happy as I received my permit quickly and efficiently and would like to really thank you guys.

Thank you! 🙂

Kind regards,

Alicia Navarro

Hi Vincent

I see regarding Intergate’s services. We’re are thus hoping to find a company with the same high degree of professionalism of that of Intergate to assist us with my application to the United States later on.

Kyle and Amanda

Dear Intergate staff,

This is a note of appreciation to thank you all for assisting Svetlana and Anastasiya in obtaining their permits for staying in South Africa. Without your help it would have been near impossible for us to negotiate the visa application process by ourselves.

Sveta is very happy here in the Cape and is settling in comfortably in her new home. She is also clearer about what venture to pursue and we would like to contact you again in this regard. Anastasiya is developing in leaps and bounds. She has progressed from starting in 9th Grade this year at school to 12th Grade level Cambridge studies with exceptional results. We anticipate that she will write 12th Grade examinations next year.

We wish you all a wonderful festive season and hope with you for a prosperous new year in 2009.

Best regards and thanks again.

Mike, Sveta and Anastasiya

I have decided to write this email as I am sure that there are a number of foreign spouses (married to SA citizens) who are in the same position as I.

I have been in a relationship with my husband for 8 years, although we only married just over a year ago.  Within these 8 years I also lived in SA with him for 2 years (as a tourist visa, so I am well aware of the problems of dealing with Home Affairs etc)

We have always planned to return back to SA rather than settle in England, so we decided to investigate the procedure involved in moving back, especially with reference to my ‘visa’ status. The South African Embassy in London are an absolute waste of space when it comes to this sort of discussion, the advice given by them in that we needed to have been married for 5 years before I could even contemplate applying for Permanent Residence – one occasion when they advised me of this was at last year’ Woza Ekhaya seminar. I thought it was quite funny that there stand was next to Intergate Immigration – who it turns out are more informed that the government’s own embassy!

Anyway to get to the point, Intergate are in the process of applying for my permanent residence application whilst I am still living in the UK. What this means is that when I arrive in SA I will be able to work as normal without any visa restrictions etc. To apply for this all you need is proof of the relationship (not marriage) having been longer than 5 years and to attend an interview in SA. My application has been submitted and I have just attended my Home Affairs interview in Cape Town. Intergate have been fantastic in dealing with this and I would have no problem in recommending them to anyone else in the same position. Hopefully by the time my residence arrives (official line is 2 years) my husband and I will have saved enough Pounds to return to the wonderful country that is South Africa!

Please feel free to use this email if it is a help at all.



When we looked at the Department of Home Affairs website we thought that meeting the requirements for immigration as retired persons would be straightforward so we applied ourselves at the South African embassy of the country where we worked (in the Middle East). We handed over all of our original documents including medicals and police clearance certificates which we needed from our home countries (UK and Philippines) and our current country of residence where we worked. Three months after our interview we enquired with the embassy the status of our application to be told that the person who conducted the interview and who submitted our application was on sick leave and gone back to South Africa, there was no record of the interview our application and original documents could not be found and there was no reference number for our application.

This is when we contacted Intergate Immigration. We had to start the application process all over again but within two weeks of arriving in South Africa we had our 4 year temporary retirement visas. At the same time as applying for temporary residency we applied for permanent residency. Initially this was declined on the basis that in the current economic climate an income of 20 000 Rand per month from property rental alone was not sufficient proof of income for life. After submitting other sources of income Intergate appealed on our behalf and we were granted our permanent residency status 15 months after arriving in South Africa.

Retiring and emigrating means a big change in lifestyle. By applying through Intergate, it was reassuring to know that there was always someone at the end of a phone who would be able to deal with your questions and concerns. Emails were answered normally within minutes of sending them and everything was done in a prompt and professional manner. We would thoroughly recommend Intergate Immigration for anyone considering retirement in South Africa.

Michael Davies & Nellie Casas

Dear Marco,

Just a quick email to say “Thank You” for all the support you gave us during the purchase of our property. I’m sure you must already know how pleased we are.

Frankly, it is hard to imagine how the service you provided could be bettered. Not only were we guided through the legal and financial aspects but in particular, we genuinely felt you were acting in our very best interests at all times.

We’ll definitely be in touch again when we purchase our next property!


Paula & Nick

Sehr geehrte Frau Maehl,

vielen Dank an Sie und Ihr Team. Alles, was bisher getan werden konnte, ist nun in “trockenen Tüchern”.

Ohne den Intergate-Support hätten wir das Ganze nicht so einfach geschafft. Unserer geplanten Einwanderung steht nun nichts mehr im Wege.

Das ID-Book werden wir beantragen, wenn wir dann endgültig in Südafrika sind und über eine feste Adresse verfügen.

Beste Grüße,

Karin + Rüdiger Drewer

Sehr geehrte Frau Haslinger,

Ich habe mit einem sehr zufriedenen Kunden gesprochen, siehe unten.

Der hat die Intergate, Fiona und Marco Garuti sehr gelobt und meinte, daß wir von Ihnen allen sehr gut betreut werden. Die Arbeitsweise von Hr. Marco Garuti hat er als sehr professionell hervorgehoben.

Das denken wir übrigens auch. Wir sind bislang sehr zufrieden. Vielleicht könnten Sie an dieser Stelle Hr. Garuti das übersetzen und an Fiona Röhlandt schicken. Mein Englisch reicht nicht aus, um das Hr. Garuti zu schreiben.


Dear Katrin,

Thanks for your mail and a nice introduction

My wife and I look forward to working with you in the coming months and we hope to be in SA sooner rather than later.

I must say we are impressed with Intergate thus far as you have come across to us as thoroughly professional and competent. We have no hesitation in recommending friends and associates to utilise Intergate’s services should there be a need.


Best regds


So glad we found out about you guys! We would have completely messed this up had you not helped us.

I will highly recommend you and your firm to all Americans coming to serve with us.

Thanks again…


As far as your service goes… Its absolutely invaluable, the correspondence that keeps coming with updates on Home Affairs etc. and it is great to be kept in the loop regarding everything that is happening out there. So I can highly commend the intense work you guys put into maintaining client satisfaction.


May I now apply for an ID book?

Is there anything else that I need to know or do?

Otherwise I really do want to thank you for all your persistant care and effort in acheiving this for me it has been an uphill struggle with the chaos at home affairs and I sincerely appreciate the instant responses, professionalism and empathy that I have constantly received from you.

As an aside do you guys deal with Irish passport renewals and if so how much would that cost?

I look forward to hearing from you
Kindest as always


Dear Intergate Immigration team,

I wish to thank you wholeheartedly for your support in the process of obtaining my permit.

As you know this year has been and remains extremely strenuous for me professionally and personally, your empathy and assistance has been invaluable in this regard.

Thank YOU again!

Kind regards,

Hi All,

Today I picked up my passport with the new work permit. It took only 8 weeks, after 6 months last time. Seems Home Affairs is improving their service.

Thank you for your great support again, until next time J.

Kind regards,


Hi all,

I want to thank you for the help given to complete the application in such a short time.

I went to the embassy this morning and got the permit back after a few hours. Amazing!

I am very happy.

I will send a scanned copy once I return to SA.

Thanks again

Maria Vall Serra

Dear Marco,

I hope you are doing well!

Thank you so much for your nice mail and words!

I have to thank you for the great job you have done for the Krawietz family!

You have been of so much help and so supportive with all the millions of details we were asking you to see for!

We are really so pleased with your endless engagement – and it was a great pleasure to work with you!

I hope we will have more opportunities to ask you and your company for support!

All the best for you and your family!

Hi Katja,

Many thanks again to you for the valuable support! Now everything can go your own way and that’s a good feeling.

One should emerge from the other threads, I rise.

I arrived safely back in Cologne and was indeed greeted with cool temperatures, but at least with sunshine.

Best wishes for today


Dear Lynne,

I have my visa!!!! All went really well this morning – only took about 10 minutes.

I am attaching a copy of the visa for your info. Now off to my nephew’s wedding – lots of celebrations this weekend! Thank you and Mark for all your help -you have really made my dream come true. Hope you enjoy your weekend as much as I will enjoy mine.

Very best regards,


Dear Lynne

I just wanted to let you know that I am now installed in my flat and my car and all my household goods were delivered last Friday, so that I am now re-discovering possessions I haven’t seen for a year! I can’t thank you both enough for all your work in helping me with my visa and answering my dozens of questions!

Nathalie has still not heard about her visa, but now that things are settling down a little we will chase it up. If we need your help with that, we will be in touch! As you can imagine, I am keen to get started on applying for a permanent visa, not least because I have quite a bit of money lodged with customs which I don’t get back until I am “permanent”.

Again, many thanks and best regards to you both.


Dear Katja,

While I wait for the residency permits to be approved I wanted to write and pass on our personal thanks to Intergate-Immigration. From my first enquiry you and your staff have provided an exceptional service. In particular Vanessa Mayer our file administrator has dealt with us in a very professional, experienced and courteous manner. No question went unanswered and most importantly she made the whole process extremely easy which removed all of the stress. I cannot understate what this meant to us both trying to plan our move to South Africa. Her attention to detail and excellent communications throughout kept us fully informed and able to ensure a smooth application which proved to be the case when we submitted the application in Cape Town last week. Could I ask you to pass on our sincere thanks to Vanessa and all of your staff who assisted us. Although the process is still underway I feel very confident in your companies capable hands.

I would also be more than happy for you to use these comments as testimony to your first class service.


Russell Booth


I am sending you this message just to say that the Home Affairs called me Friday morning to give me the big news. My permanent residency is waiting for me in Johannesburg. I am SO happy!!

I would like to thank all the Intergate team for all your hard work!!! It has been such a pleasure having people like you!! You made my dreams possible!

My kindest regards.


Dear Katrin,

Many thanks for your tireless efforts in this matter, both Annett and myself are extremely happy that we can now finalise our planning towards a life in SA. Please extend our thanks to the team you have around you who have helped also, it’s really appreciated.

I will be in touch with you in due course to propose a date on which I would like to come to SA for the permanent residency stamp to be endorsed accordingly.

Kind Regards

Andrew Rogoff

Dear Katja

Thank you. I’m still walking on cloud nine after receiving my PR. Everyone at Intergate has been awesome over the past 19 months.

Thanks, too, for the information. I shall certainly take advantage of it and contact you in due course.

Kind regards



Very well done to you and all the team in obtaining my Permenent Resendence.

I am going overseas very shortly for Christmas so if I may I will make contact with you on my return to arrange a visit to Cape Town after our return in early 2013.

Well done once again.

With kindest regards,


Hi Katja,

Yes, the whole process and the timing really impressed me.

I must also say that Chloe is doing a great job!

Now we hope only to the study permit in the next few weeks …

Best regards,


Morning Katja

That is great news, thank you for tenacity and continuous support making this achievement possible.

Well done!


Dear All,

I wish to share with you all the wonderful news that the permit application was successful and has been now granted by the embassy in London. I wish to thank all of you for a wonderful job in guiding me through this unbelievably procedure and will now I guess move onto the next milestones of moving, housing, flights and start dates.

I am so excited and so looking forward to getting started and settling in.

Kind Regards,


Good day,

I just want to thank Lynne and everyone from Intergate for their great job and dedication and for having helped to make this dream possible for me.

I am very happy as I received my permit quickly and efficiently and would like to really thank you guys.

Thank you! 🙂

Kind regards,


Hi Lynne,

Thank you so much – that was very easy and painless.

Very much appreciated.

Good afternoon Clodagh,

We can have a little party, because this morning we’ve received an email (see below so you can read it yourself) that the visa/permits have already been issued. Really fast isn’t it? The guy at the Embassy said that everything looked very good, so together we did a good job. Thank you for all the good information and quick replies; alltogether it made it a fast submission.

Kind regards,


Dear Katja,

Thank you for your email. Again I am impressed by the efficiency of your company ! We are all well, we have just come back from visiting South Africa where we met up with Anna who is having a great time, although the course is hard work.

The course is just one year and Anna is then planning to go to University in the USA so she won’t be needing to renew her visa.

HOWEVER I would like to take this opportunity to say that if I ever need any documentation or advice I will not hesitate to contact you.

I meant to send an email in May after completing the gruelling process of applying for the visa to say what a pleasure it was working with Arlene, and I apologise for not doing so.

I was so very impressed with her courtesy, efficiency and professionalism in dealing with Anna’s application…She always responded immediately to any questions and explained everything so clearly. Everything was so well organised. I had very little time to arrange the visa and there is no doubt in my mind that I would have failed to do it in the timeframe without Intergate and especially Arlene. She was fantastic.

I will keep you details safe and I am more than happy to recommend your services.

Very best wishes for 2014


Hi guys,

Sorry it’s taken me so long to send this email. Just wanted to say thank you for sorting Katie’s visa. You guys were fantastic and all the stress and anxiety we went through second time rounds has been lifted, largely thanks to you and your great service.

I am sure we will use you again, and I will definitely recommend you.



Good afternoon ladies,

Thank you for the feedback.

Oh, and I must tell you. I tweeted about how happy I was with the fact that we got his life partner permit so quickly and I’ve had numerous replies (and retweets) asking how we did it. So I have been marketing for you J Hope that some of them actually use you guys.

Have a lovely day and hope to hear from you soon.

Kind regards


Dear Kelly,

Thank you for all your help.

It was a pleasure dealing with you and your company.

I really appreciate all you work.

Best regards,



Thank you for taking me through this long journey. I will always remember Intergate for your professional attitude especially when it comes to communication and follow ups.



Thank you very much for updating me, God bless you. Its difficult to find people you in the world. You listen to clients and have enough time to attend to them.

Keep up the good work that you are doing, its my first time of working with an Immigration Company, i am happy and satisfied with your service, now my Boss said we are going to work with your Company forever.

Thank you very much

Kind regards


Thank you most sincerely for alerting your clients to this refund opportunity and the speed and professionalism that you showed at the office during our visits.

You should be very proud of your service levels, truly world class.


You have been most helpful, professional and polite, we have been very happy with everything you have done. As soon as we have this visa in my hand we will start on the Permanent Visa.

We will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else who is in need of help with their visa.

Thanking you again Janet

Can I just say that Integrate Immigration have been exceptionally good with service 🙂 .
