Default Pending Visa Appeal outcome

Hi there. I'm waiting for my Visa appeal outcome and my current Critical Skills Visa expires on Friday. Now I'm bound to fly to Port Elizabeth for work reasons next week. Will I be considered as still legal in this country or liable for deportation lol?

You are still legal until your appeal outcome is finalised. If it is rejected you are given a certain number of day to leave the country. If you leave within that time frame you are not banned.

The days should be written on the letter you receive, usually 10 days.

Sometimes you can still appeal, they generally will ask you to leave the country if the basis for the rejection the second time around, is if in their opinion, you have submitted fraudulent documents.
