ABOUT US

WE ARE A WELL-ESTABLISHED IMMIGRATION, VISA AND PERMIT SERVICE PROVIDER

Immigration Management Services, trading as Visa One, offers the full range of immigration services to local clients and those who live abroad. We are dedicated to our clients and committed to delivering excellent service. Among us, we have almost 40 years’ combined experience in immigration, visas, permits and related fields. We have the expertise to ensure the practical implementation of immigration rules – often amended by the Department of Home Affairs – is negotiated seamlessly and timeously.

Even though Visa One is not a law firm, we make sure every submitted application or any engagement on behalf of our clients complies with the Immigrations Act and regulations, and meets the highest possible legal standards. During the past five years, we have resorted to legal action on behalf of clients. By presenting their cases in the Cape High Court, many long-outstanding temporary and permanent residence applications from the Department of Home Affairs have been finalised.
