Hello oceanracer

Please advise on rejection for retirement visa .
I applied for retired visa frm mumbai India and submitted my docs of investment But still the visa was rejected on basis of following reason
“Failure to provide proof of irrevocable retirement annuity Or Net worth of assets”

Pls tell me if this reason of denial is arbitrary or not, for me it just does not make sense ...


I appealed on the basis of my docs submitted since all were in order to meet dha requirement .
It’s been more then 4 months n stilll no reply ,even after sending mails to each n everyone at dha .
Please advise If there is any help you can provide coz looks like I’m going no where with dha .

I look forward to some insightful input
.....thks

Hello members,

My application for a critical skill visa got rejected in December 2015. After receiving the decision, I appealed. It is more than 2 years now, i have never received an outcome from the Home Affairs. Is there a specific office within the Home Affairs that i can contact in this regards?

Many thanks for your assistance.

Kind regards,
Elie

It will take forever for appeals especially applications from India.

Hai

I had applied for my PR in 2014, I stayed in South africa from 2007 till 2013 with family, parents were teachers on work permit and I had a study permit. After matric I went back to India for higher studies in Feb 2013.. Visited Sa in 2014 with a relative permit (both parents have PR at this stage) applied for my PR at Vfs.
Any who, last week I received a letter saying my application has been refused since I'm not in possession of a valid visa atm.. But I do have a valid relative permit till December 2018.. I read somewhere that permits received from outside Sa may not be linked to the Local GA since its with the Embassy. Could it be possible they're unaware about my current relative permit since it was renewed after my PR submission
I would love to receive some feedback since I have to appeal before next week. Any feedback on writing an appeal would really appreciated

I got a permanent job in south Africa as a risk assessor. Initially I was given 1 year when I applied for this critical skill, in the pretext that I will extent my critical skills permit by other 4 years if I get a job . I got a job on the first of May and I submitted everything including the contract that stipulated the permanent basis to the DHA VIA vfS rivonia. I got a rejection that says the applicant cannot be appointed on permanent basis as his status in the country is temporal.
How best can I appeal given such a decision

hi there,

Is it possible for you to provide me with the immigration consultant firm that escalated your appeal? And even perhaps your friend? I am really struggling to have any feedback on mine. Thank you in advance.
