Default Critical Skills Visa:Offer Letter

Hi

I will be applying for a Critical Skills Visa(Business Analyst) in the coming weeks. I'm waiting for my proof of critical skills to be confirmed from IBA.

I am hoping to expedite the process and not wait 6-8 weeks as I already have a job offer in place. However I am failing to find comprehensive info on how the offer should be presented on the job offer from my prospective employer.

Has anyone ever had success with this or have a template of sorts? Also perhaps a testimonial letter of sorts motivating for a speedy processing time. Any templates, or info would be much appreciated.

I tried asking Home Affairs and their responses are vague to say the least.

Hi Curious Zimbo,

You need to provide an original signed version of the contract of employment and the date of commencement needs to read "upon issuance of a valid work visa".
Good luck!

Hey Curious Zimbo,

I am planning on applying for the same visa, are you doing it in zim? If so, do you know about the policy on work experience? I have just over 5 years including a year undergrad but someone told me it has to be 5 years after graduation when submitting in Harare. Let me know, if you know please, thanks!
