• Educative and Entertaining eNEWS Blog

    01 Feb 2019 | Grinnog (Scotland)

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  • Successful Tender Submission

    02 Mar 2017 | Javier Martínes Fresneda (Spain)

    Dear Ralph:

    We approach you again asking for your help relating with other proposal delivery (tender submission)to the DBSA. First of all, I would say that we are so grateful for your help in the last one. We finally submitted it on time and with all the requested documents on.

  • BEE Certificate received for our Company

    02 Dec 2016 | Aitor Lekue Oleagordia (Spain)

    Congratulations to you and your team for achieving a goal. It was difficult but you got it!

    It’s been a long process and for us, it has been especially difficult because of the lack of knowledge on the subject and the need to modify social capital, that is a very sensitive issue that has forced us to review it in more detail. The obstacles of language and culture of the country have not helped either.

    Thanks a lot for the support and patience showed in all the process.

    The best wishes to you and your team. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

  • You are a Genius

    04 Jul 2016 | Martin Williams (UK)

    Hello Gabriela,

    You are evidently a genius and it seems that you have managed to intervene faster than anybody else in the Republic could have done. For reference, my immigration lawyer in Cape Town told me that it may take 3 months! Suffice to say, I am extremely grateful for your intervention and I cannot express the level of relief that I now feel. Thanks so much, and we will be in touch next week to commence the process of rectifying the error in Gabriel’s visa.

    Best regards – Martin

  • Helpful and Professional

    24 Jun 2016 | Klara Michal (Slovakia)

    Hi Gabriela/John,

    I just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for all your help with my visa and PR applications. You were so helpful and professional in answering all my questions, guiding me in all the documents I needed and made it so easy for me – I cannot thank you enough!!

    I guess now we just wait the 12-18 months for the PR application to get approved – if I do end up needing to get a new passport (and have to transfer my current visa to it), I’ll let you know (and would love your help in doing that).

    All the best with future clients, and again, thank you so much!!!

  • Thank You for your Dedication

    Dear Ralph,

    I trust you are well. I just want to let you know that last week we finally applied for my Permanent Residence Permit. I would like say thank you to John & Gabriella for the patience, the support and the dedication with my "complicated"case.

    Now we just have to cross the fingers.
