Ben Makhalemele, Director of Corporate Accounts at the Department of Home Affairs’ (DHA), recently confirmed that they will be conducting random inspection on companies to ensure that there is immigration compliance. If your company currently employs expatriates or plans to bring in future expatriates on a continuous basis, you can expect “a knock on the door”.

This follows the DHA having picked up several incidents of companies employing foreign nationals without proper vetting of the required work visas. As such, the announcement has incited the need for companies to ensure adherence to the Immigration Act, in case Home Affairs identify the company for the imminent inspections.

Xpatweb offer a comprehensive Immigration Audit service that involves sending one of our Immigration Managers to your company’s premises to guarantee the following –

  • The expatriate (and family members) in your employ have valid visas;
  • The visas were obtained according to proper rules and regulations; and
  • The conditions stipulated in their visas are in line with their current activities.

The process will include the auditing of all documents to ensure conformity with the prescribed immigration rules and procedures.

Where there is doubt with the legitimacy of a visa the Department of Home Affairs will be engaged to verify the legality of the visa in question.

Once the Audit is complete we will compile a report advising on the status of your immigration compliance including any risk areas.
