Immigration Law

VISA Applications & Residence Permits

Our VISA Applications & Residence Permits fall under the amended Immigration Act of 2002 and its regulations. We work closely with Sophia Cloete who specialises in immigration and refugee law. Sophia has a keen passion for human rights and thrives in the global reach of immigration and refugee law, where much of her client base consists of African nationals.

Bregman Moodley Attorneys will handle and file your paperwork correctly, promptly and efficiently with the Department of Home Affairs, for those abroad and within the South African border. We know how to assist you through the process to apply for residence and work permits, rights to citizenship and refugee status applications. We also handle appeal applications quickly and at affordable rates. Within the framework of expected delays at Home Affairs, we have forged relationships with officials in the department to speed up the processes.

Our expertise prevents untimely delays or mistakes with the lodging of documents. Using our services will minimise frustration dealing with Home Affairs: we know what goes into getting an appeal heard and visas and permanent residence or citizenship granted. We know how the system works and who is the best person to contact.

We offer support for the following visas:

  • Permanent residence permits
  • Critical skills work visas
  • General work visas
  • Intra-company transfer work visas
  • Spousal visas
  • Relative’s visas
  • Study visas
  • Retired person visa
  • Business visas
  • Medical treatment visa
  • Appeals and reviews
  • Exemptions/waivers

We also offer comprehensive assistance with the applications, in support of permanent residence permits. On top of this, we extend support for temporary residence visa applications which involve:

  • Applications for professional body membership and critical skills work visa endorsement letter
  • Applications to South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) for verification of foreign qualifications

Our expert team will fully explain all your options to you. In some instances, there are circumstances which may limit certain movement or rights which are afforded to citizens of a country. After we consult with you either face-to-face or via e-meetings, you will clearly understand the immigration and refugee steps to follow, and possibly apply for citizenship in the future.
