The nitty-gritty of Immigration and Compliance
It is often assumed that when one gets issued with a visa or permanent residence (PR), all is good, and one can simply get on with life.
We are here to caution both applicant and employer that you need to pay close attention to the conditions attached to the visa and permanent residence as well as the paperwork that you submit with your applications.
Here are a few examples of conditions attached to a visa and PR application
Employer Undertakings – to notify Home Affairs when an employee left their employment
Employer Undertakings – to notify Home Affairs when an employee is no longer employed in the same capacity or position
Schools – to notify Home Affairs if the student deregistered, failed to register or when the student completed his or her studies
Spouses and own business owners would be issued with conditions attached to their permanent residence in South Africa
ALWAYS check the conditions on your visa (sticker) and permanent residence (PR) certificate upon issuance. It may save you the costly inconvenience of getting your visa or PR cancelled. It is very important that these conditions be adhered to.
