Sorry for the Late response....

I am a Network Engineer. ONce you get your CSA from IITPSA, I think another aspect is in packaging your application. I went over board with my application. Attached all my Professional Qualification. Made sure every document that was required was provided. The Introduction letter, i made them see that they NEED me. I Think Gods grace played its part too. My Visa was out after 17 days of Application and I was giving 5 Years.

Unto Job search.. You just have to be Dogged about it. To get a job from Nigeria itself is crazy. I applied on every known website (LinkedIn, Indeed, pnet.co.za e.t.c). I engaged Recruiters on LinkedIn everyday. Some will respond to you, Others wont. The Ones that responded told you that you had to come over for any body to take you serious. I put in about 10 applications or more everyday. I even applied more than ones in a role.. Rejection after Rejection. I dint give up.

I got angry one day and called someone to get my Tickets for me. Booked my flight for October 2. I was determined to just go and hustle it out. I have my 5 Years visa already why Am i wasting it in naija.. Mind you i had a job oh that paid me above 300k. It was a Gamble and a calculated risk. A friend i met here that assisted in my application advised that i shud chill till January.. It fell on def ears.. I dint mind coming over to even work in a bar grin grin... As God will have it.. I bought my Tickets on Friday. the next Tuesday I was scheduled for an Interview for Wednesday (Zoom) , Did a video Interview with the Global HR on Thursday... Same Thursday i was asked what i wanted as my Pay.... I gave them a Figure.. Dint hear from them on Friday..Was worried maybe i over prized.. The next Monday, I got an Email with an Offer letter with the same Figure i asked for.. My Ticket was bought for 2nd October, I resumed 8th October.

I am sharing this for everybody or anyone that feels discouraged. If you have been Denied. Its not the end of the world. Look at the reason why you were denied and re apply again. Dont give up. The are opportunities here better than Nigeria especially if you are in IT (Developers, Programmers, Network/Security Enginners). I know Nigerians earning as much as 100k rand per month (God go soon do our own). If not for anything, Keep pushing for the future of your Kids. Sorry I dont see things Changing in Nigeria soon..


P.S If this Message touch you, abeg pray for me.. I applied for P.R.P this week. The same God that has established me here will make it a success

Exactly.

Information Security is a field ALMOST ALL COUNTRY will grant you a work visa for. If you are into IT. Begin looking at Security. Not just for S.A, for other COuntry work visa.


Geenosko:


Yes but they said the skills he has, South Africans already have in abundance So he should probably look at the deep end of IT where the skills are really scarce. For instance security...

At some point this year, RSA may remove say occupations from the CSV list.

This is not an assistant, all of you asking people for their visa application reference number are giving them false hope because you can not influence the outcome of their visa applications.

Lets not turn this thread to a dark web where people carry out some illegal activities.

They won't accept it in Lagos, I don't know about other centres.
Also make sure that all letters on the stamp are clear, if not ask your supervisor to send another copy.

Why not do a prepaid Booking for your application and you can also use it as evidence of Accommodation at the airport to avoid stories. because immigration at POE prefare Prepaid Booking!

Note: you can Adjust the date of your Arrival on the booking and reprint!!

Just imagine what will happen if South African embassy is alerted about what is going on here? Any Nigerian that works there will be a suspect.
