BIC is able to assist you with an extension of your visa. In cases where the visa has already been granted for the maximum period allowed (such as the volunteer or research visas that can only be granted for a maximum period of three years) an extension may not be possible. However in all circumstances BIC will be able to assess your case on its individual merits and be able to advise you on the best available options.
It is important to keep in mind that an application must be submitted thirty days before expiry of your current visa in order to allow the administrative work to be completed. BIC will provide you with a complete list of the documents required, and finalise the extension process as fast as possible to enable your extended stay in South Africa.
