...or at least his Presidential Hotline does. I am finally after 9 and a half months holding in my hand my Spousal Visa with work endorsement. Had to wait for three and a half hours in the rain outside Germiston HA this morning to get it but it was soooooo worth the wait. It is all thanks to the Presidential Hotline, they 'fast-tracked' my case and if it wasn't for them I would never have seen my permit as HA had lost my application for a third time. I am so so happy and relieved. Finally I can go to SARS and register for tax and start working legally. Excellent start to the weekend:D

FABULOUS!!!! Must be a huge relief..... there wasn't an icon with someone drinking wine and having a big celebration so this one will have to do.

Lodged my complaint in November 2011 and got the permit now so 'fast-track' took approximately 4 months. Not fast in my books but hey I got my permit so I am happy. Celebrated lots on Friday night.

Guess everything is relative! 4 months is pretty darned good by SA standards. :)

For many in your shoes it will be a huge relief & godsend not to be out of work for so long - hopefully it only improves so that people feel more positive about going to SA in the first place.

So pleased you had a great Friday night celebrating lot's!:clap2:
