Hi,

I have Critical Skills Work Permit VISA for 1 year Validity. I have a job and I would like to renew my VISA for 5 years and then I will apply for PR.

Please suggest!

How much it cost and how much time it takes for VISA renewal for 5 years.

Thanks & Regards,

Kushal Desai

Hi Kushal

Try the VFS website - they have all the info you need to apply to renew your visa including prices and waiting times, and also the link where you apply online. The site says it takes between 8 and 10 weeks to process a critical skills visa, but you should start applying as soon as possible. When does your current visa expire?

Hello Emma,

It's always great to receive a reply from you!

My Critical Skills Work Permit VISA expires on 6th of June, 2018. I recently got a job in Joburg and I wanted to renew my VISA before or after December.

Thank you so much for your time!

Hi Kushal

While there's still some time before your visa expires, I suggest you don't wait too long to start the renewal process. Did you get your visa by yourself? Or through an agent?

It's only a pleasure!
