Good day,

in the light of the new immigration act, which came in to effect in Mai 2014, which documents are required for an extension/renewal of a work endorsement? In the past, one would qualify for a work endorsement, if you are married (or live in a recognized partnership) with a South African spouse.

VFS Global (now responsible for handling the visa applications), have no knowledge of the regulation with regards to this endorsement. Neither can they advise, if a change of employer on the endorsement, would constitute as a “change in condition”.

Has anyone undertaken an extension of a work endorsement under the new act? And could you possibly advise on the documents that were handed in, as well as on the outcome of your renewal application?

Thanks in advance.
