HI all
My critical skill was rejected for the following reason
the applicant s profession of credit analyst is not catered for on the critical list.the list of occupations /categories can be found under government of gazette no 37716

i would also like to specified if i can only ask my employer to change the possition
or i also need to ask the professional body ( irmsa) to change as the also write credit analyst on the critical skill letter

thank you all

If your employer is flexible they could write a different position on the contract and letter of employment . Just for you to apply. Many companies have done that .

It depends with the board that you used and what the letter says. I'm in engineering so the field is quite broad but the letter is standard.

Rather apply with another board. An appeal won't help you if the documents have not changed. I would spend the time and money and ensure that I get the Visa.

I have never appealed but from my experience on these forums, I have seen only 1 successful appeal and it took him a year of tedious follow up. Reapplying is the common route.

But that's just me.......

Did you apply in your home country? Did they not take your passport ? Which makes it impossible to reapply without a passport. Others can confirm if you can apply with a pending application ...

I am yet to see a PR application in the home country for African countries. I have seen people from the UK get PR in their home country but not in Africa yet.

Why don't you just apply here in SA unless it's a first time application? Home country applications in African and Asian Countries are just a mess.

We go through hell compared to what our fellow expats from the west go through.

Im sure others will also advise you if they have seen a successful PR in the home country.

No you can only apply in your Home country if you're not on any other visa. You can't apply using a visitors visa also. You just have to wait for your appeal outcome. All the best.
