Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba said they are on course to implementing the new Immigration Regulations of 2014.

Minister Gigaba said the new immigration regulations are in line with the objectives of the department of managing immigration efficiently and effectively. 

He added that this will facilitate socio-economic development as well as to protect the integrity of our boarders. 

Malusi Gigaba said we are insisting on simple basic things that foreign nationals have to abide by and these are the same systems that South Africans have to abide by in other countries.

Gigaba added that in pursuing this strategic goal the department has modernized the immigration services and VFS global has been appointed to manage this process.

Meanwhile the Department of Home Affairs together with VFS will be establishing Visa Facilitation Centers in all nine provinces. 

Gauteng and Cape Town will have two centers in light of the high volume of applications. 

Minister Gigaba said the decision to appoint a private service provider for visa facilitation services is to strengthen South Africa’s immigration policy, to meet the country’s goal of transforming the economy creating sustainable jobs. 

Gigaba said it is critical to know the decision to allow a disallow a Vise lie solely with the Department of Home Affairs not VFS.
