TIES Immigration started as a department within the International English School. Its aim was to assist international students with their study visas.

Tania Copeland sat the Immigration law exam and became a qualified immigration practitioner, registered with Home Affairs and FIPSA in 2009. We have a manager, Joanie Cloete, and two consultants, Grant Buckle and Tania Copeland.

We deal with both local applications lodged through VFS and Home Affairs, and foreign applications lodged through Foreign Embassies. In 2016 we also started dealing with emigration – SA citizens who wish to emigrate overseas.

We specialise in the following:

  1. Study, intern and volunteer visas

  2. Work, critical skills and own business permits

  3. Spouse and relatives’ visas

  4. Retirement visas

  5. Visitor visas

We also deal with civic matters:

  1. Determination of citizenship

  2. Foreign birth registration

  3. Marriage, death and birth certificates

We also appeal cases for clients dealing with:

  1. Inspectorates for legalisation

  2. District Governor for good cause appeals

  3. Overstay appeals

  4. Asylum appeals

Miscellaneous applications:

  1. SCRA certification

  2. Waiver applications to change conditions onshore

  3. Exemption applications

We do not charge for consultations – ADVICE IS FREE
