Immigration Law

Without a credible and knowledgeable legal partner, establishing a business concern in a new market can cause any number of bureaucratic headaches.

It is important to consider what needs to be in place from a regulatory perspective to enable a business to set up an office in South Africa, to employ people, and to ensure that the company complies with regulations.

Immigration regulation is complex and understanding the practical issues with regards to lodgement and the process to get the approvals in place is paramount.
