SA Migration International

SA Migration International was created out of the need for a specialist organization to assist people wishing to immigrate, volunteer, work, bring family, study or open businesses in South Africa.

We will guide you through the entire process to require the appropriate permit. Once we confirm that you will qualify for the visa, we will guarantee you a successful application. This is normally done in the first consultation - which is for free.

The year 2021 is the deadline for the end of the Angolan Special Permit - a temporary permit issued to Angolans whose refugee status ceased in 2013.
