EIC was established and is managed by Richard Eiberg (LLB), one of the most sought after immigration specialists in South Africa.

During his time with The Department of Home Affairs, Richard progressed to the senior management level within the Immigration Branch. Richard was appointed as an Assistant Director of Immigration Services, and prior to his leaving the Department to establish EIC, was appointed as the Acting Deputy Director: Immigration Services. As a manager within the Immigration Component of Home Affairs, Richard was actively involved in numerous management forums, including the quarterly National Immigration Branch meetings chaired by the Deputy Director General for Immigration Services of the Department Home Affairs – a position that granted him a unique understanding of the strategic objections of the Immigration Branch, knowledge that today can be applied to the utmost benefit of his clients. It is with over a quarter of a century of experience within the Immigration Branch of Home Affairs that Richard has decided to embark on the new challenge of providing assistance to clients in the private sector.

    It was such a relief to have Richard dealing with my immigration to South Africa! He communicated clearly throughout the process and was easily approachable when I had questions. I have already recommended Richard on to others who are working on immigrating to South Africa, and will continue to do so! He is highly capable and clearly does his job to the best of his ability.

    Excellent, fast, efficient. Definitely highly recommended. I had to renew my little sister's study permit for her matric. Richard guided me through the whole process, even made a booking for us for the collection.
