D&A South Africa

With a strong team on the ground coupled with expertise in a range of global citizenship and residency programs, D&A is uniquely positioned to help South Africans make their move overseas.

We are able to help South Africans whatever their chosen destination. This has typically been the United Kingdom, Mauritius or Europe. Yet we are seeing growing interest in our core market, the United States.

EB-5 Visa for South Africans

The EB-5 Investor Visa that has experienced the sharpest growth of any visa category among South Africans. There has been a six-fold increase in the number of EB-5 visas issued to South Africans since 2014. This visa is the fastest route to a US Green Card for individuals or families that are able to make a $500,000 investment. A Green Card offers a whole range of benefits, including the freedom to live, work, retire or study anywhere in the United States.

L-1 Visas South Africans

There has also been growth in the number of L visas issued to South Africans, albeit at a slower rate than EB-5. The L1 visa allows for the intracompany transfer of employees between the South African office and an American office of the same company. Davies & Associates specializes in helping companies set-up a new American office for the purposes of transferring employees on an L1 visa.

Grenada Citizenship by Investment and E-2 Visas

We are also seeing increasing number of inquiries from South Africans seeking another passport to allow them to travel more seamlessly around the world. One popular option is the Grenada passport, which allows for visa-free travel to 50% more countries than the South African passport, including to the UK, the EU, Hong Kong, Singapore and the People’s Republic of China.

The Grenada passport also makes South Africans eligible for the United States E-2 Visa, which allows the holder to live in the United States for the purpose of owning and operating a business.

Corporate and Tax Support

Relocating overseas can be a complicated process, not least because it means contending with different tax laws and the challenges of setting up a business or buying a home. D&A is a full-service immigration law firm which offers a range of tax advice and corporate legal services to our clients.

Mark is one of the best things happened to me in immigration. I was very skeptical as my last attempt to obtain an L1A was a negative one through another lawyer.
