    Why use us?

    • Saving you time: We queue for you, we apply on your behalf, we call and travel many times to follow up on your applications and then collect once ready. Usually we receive documents much, much faster than if you had applied alone, especially if you are based outside of South Africa. You save masses of time, effort and money using our services.
    • Cheaper for you: When you consider your valuable time, travel expenses to embassies or govertment departments, waiting in queues, the effort of completing forms correctly, knowing where to go, what to do, what to fill in, following up on the phone, travelling to collect, the list is endless! When you add up the cost of all that, our services are much cheaper than going it alone.
    • Experience and know-how: We are a reputable firm with an extensive track record. We employ and work with lawyers, marriage officers, notaries, finance/tax experts and many more experienced professionals. Other providers are typically back-street operators or single operators – be aware as your personal documentation is at stake.
    • Compliance: We are POPIA / PAIA compliant – after completing your instruction any extra physical and digital documentation is properly disposed of. We protect client information, which is key to your security and our integrity.
