This information is for everyone who has been issued with a Quota Work Permit and who has to submit an annual confirmation as condition of their permit. For your convenience and perusal take a look at the following recommendations below:
Previously, the Department of Home Affairs was responsible for collecting the documents, p.e. the annual confirmations, which has been changed due to the new Immigration Act. The merge of Quota Work Permit and Exceptional Skills Permit to the Critical Skills Visa lead to the following problem. VFS, which will from now on deal with all kind of immigration applications, didn’t carry over any processes concerning Quota Work Permits, which is quite confusing for people holding such a permit as they don’t know where to submit the required documents.
To ensure a smooth transition, the Department of Home Affairs has now set-up an email address (see below) especially for Quota Permit holders, where reporting can be submitted.
After having received the required documents, the Department of Home Affairs will then issue a compliance letter to the client confirming whether the client continues to comply with the conditions of the work visa issued to them. That letter will be signed and scanned back to the applicant’s email address.
Important Notice: The Email of Home Affairs is just made for holders of Quota Work Permit who are due to report. It is only for submitting required documents in condition of their permit.
Current holders of Quota work permits are advised to submit CLEAR and READABLE copies of the following documents via the email address mentioned above:
• Valid contract of employment,
• Certified Proof of registration with relevant professional body, board or council, where required,
• Comprehensive CV,
• Certified Proof of SAQA evaluation certificate of qualifications; and
• Certified copies of pages in passport reflecting personal details and quota work permit obtained.
