Round Two – Minister of the Department of Home Affairs Gazette New Immigration Regulations: A Closer Look at the Changes

On the 20th of May 2024, the Minister of Home Affairs, Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi (“the Minister”), Gazetted a new set of Immigration Regulations.

The Department of Home Affairs (“DHA”) faced backlash after publishing the aforementioned regulations a day prior to the closing date for comments. This led to the Minister formally withdrawing the regulations on 12 April 2024, in order to follow due process before the regulations would be Gazetted again.
