Global Migration Group: News Update


South African Immigration Policies and Laws are changing


One of the constants in our lives as business people and private people, is change. The field of Immigration and Relocation, sometimes called Mobility, is no exception. The issue has been conflated, confused and politicized and the media often offer a distorted perspective based on short term and spectacular events, which are not indicative of the broader issues. We offer a factual and sober perspective to people who work in this field.

We have been in the business for over 15 years and service small medium and large companies and individuals from all over the world. Our clients include JSE, FTSE, NYSE EU and other stock exchanges. To navigate the changes and to ensure continuity of personnel and business, we have adapted our service offerings based on client requests.
