References needed for work visa
« on: June 08, 2016, 08:40:41 pm »
Greetings all. Thanks for all the helpful posts.

We have gathered almost all our document (just waiting for police clearance and tax clearance) and would apply for work soon. What work references is needed for a work visa and in what format should it be?

Thank you in advance.

We used a combination of resources but basically remember you are showing how you grew in the skills you need to do the job you have been appointed to. For each job we showed: hours of work, title, start and end date and duties. We used official sources like employment contract and SARS income tax return (for dates). Whatever we didn't have we asked the companies to put on an official letterhead. If any companies changed names from what it was when we worked there we asked for their official change of name on the company letterhead (they should have this readily available).
