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.

Best Service from any Company in many Years

Dear Ralph and Gabriela

I would like to commend you and your company IntoSA for, probably the best service I have received from any company or organization in many years! From the time we met Gabriela and John we were blown away by the level of professionalism and enthusiasm to help us. Thank you for that, it was very refreshing.

BEE Certificate received for our Company

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!!

Aitor L. (Spain)
