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.
