Banned from SA


Applications for permanent residency in South Africa are considered in terms of Section 26 (Direct Residency Permits) and Section 27 (Residency-on-Other-Grounds Permits) of the Immigration Act 2002 (Act No 13 of 2002), and read with Regulation 33 of the Immigration Regulations.

Banned From SA

The Immigration Act sets out various grounds upon which an individual can be declared a prohibited person, and banned from entering South Africa. These individuals are often told that they have been placed on the “V List”.

 

One of the most common grounds for being placed on the “V List” is that the individual was found in possession of a fraudulent visa, permit, passport or identity document.

If this has happened to you, you may appeal to the Director-General of Home Affairs to overturn the decision and have the prohibition uplifted.

If you require assistance, please get in touch. We would be delighted to help.
