Hello everyone! A bit about me. My husband and I, and our 2 young kids live in Cape Town. We love it, but the constant crime and the worry for our children's future has made us concerned about remaining in the country. My husband has recently been offered a well paying job in Victoria. The company would pay for our move and handle the immigration side of things. My concern is, how do you make that final decision to leave? I keep trying to weigh up the pros and cons in my head, but I always end up feeling just as confused and panicky. As a family we are all very close to the grandparents who live very close to us, and the idea of leaving them and moving their grandkids away makes me wonder if moving would be the right decision. Our kids are also in a wonderful public school here, would they get that same standard in Victoria? Would they be worse off if we uproot them from the grandparents they adore ? Any advice would be really appreciated ❤️
Hi Everyone, I was wondering how many people on the forum was/is from Cape Town and if the immigration was difficult because I've heard from many people that Capetonians find it more difficult to settle in Canada. I think the reasoning is that Cape Town is very different than the rest of SA and we have experienced less crime than the other parts of the country which almost makes one feel like you are leaving a country that is still "okayish" where as people leaving SA from JHB really leave because it is an absolute nessesity. Things have become totally unbearable around the JHB area so the only alternative is to leave the country. I would love to hear from the Capetonians that made the move if they have had regrets, second thoughts ect. PS: I am still trying to convince my husband that we should leave but he loves his country..
Hi Anyone tell me where in Cape Town we can have photos taken with the specifications needed for the application? The photos must: measure between 25 mm and 30 mm (1”and 1 3/8”) from chin to crown;have a 35 mm x 45 mm (1 3/8” x 1 ¾”) finished size.We went to a photo place in Cavendish that does Visa photos etc, a while back but the guy had no idea what I was talking about so we left it at that, but now that we are a couple days away from submitting our application it's probably worth doing We're going to try Orms in the morning, but if that fails?
