Move to South Africa

Moving to South Africa has never been quicker or easier thanks to Brighter Visas’ team of immigration experts. They work hard to ensure that our clients receive their visas for South Africa in the shortest possible time and with the minimum of effort. Because each visa has its own processing times and fees, the timescale for moving to South Africa can vary a great deal; some visas are processed in a matter of days whereas more complex cases can take years. The SA authorities are responsible for the actual processing of visas, so both the times and fees are subject to change by them not by Brighter Visas. We would always suggest that our clients wait before financially committing themselves to any travel arrangements or any other such thing which may be affected by delays in processing.

There are so many ways of migrating to South Africa and Brighter Visas are the world’s leading South African immigration specialists, so we know just the right visa for you. If you would like more information on migrating to South Africa then why not take our free online assessment right now? Below are just some of the different ways that you may be eligible for migrating to this amazing country:

Family and Partner Visas

If you are related or married to a South African citizen or permanent resident then you could be eligible for a spousal or relative visa. We love reuniting families and helping spouses to be with their partner in South Africa, and our feedback shows that we’re doing a great job. Because each visa has its own unique benefits and requirements, you should get in touch with us right now to discuss the perfect visa for your needs. Brighter Visas have been helping our clients move abroad to be with their loved ones since 1996, so taking advantage of our years of expertise is the best way to start your South African story.


Working in SA can be extremely rewarding both personally and financially. What could be better than earning your way to South African residency or simply being part of a lucrative and ever-growing economy? Millions of workers are already enjoying the benefits of life in South Africa, and we’re proud to say that many of them used the world’s best immigration consultancy to obtain their visas. Brighter Visas’ network of South African employment contacts means that our clients are constantly updated with the best jobs available in South Africa, which makes applying for the right jobs so quick and easy.

Citizenship and Permanent Residency

Once you’ve moved to South Africa you may want to become a permanent resident or citizen and Brighter Visas can help you there, too. Gaining citizenship or permanent resident status is so important to our clients who have been living and working in South Africa for years; they want to feel an official part of the country they have been a part of for so long, and helping them to achieve this is so satisfying for all of our team.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
