State of Disaster:
Coronavirus national disaster:
South African Immigration

The Covid-19 virus pandemic has impacted South Africa’s borders. President Ramaphosa’s declaration of a State of Disaster on Sunday 15 March 2020, coupled with Home Affairs Minister Motsoaledi’s announcements on 17 March 2020, have introduced a new South African immigration policy.

From midnight Thursday 26 March 2020 and until 16 April 2020 South Africa will be on lockdown, all non-essential business will be closed.

Eisenberg & Associates is keeping track of this policy as it evolves day by day, impacting every aspect of South African visa applications.  We will endeavor to address individual queries in the most efficient and intelligent way under these unprecedented circumstances.  Concerned parties and clients are invited to contact us directly for assistance.
