WHEN CAN SOMEONE SUBMIT AN APPEAL?
An appeal can be submitted against any negative decision received from the Department of Home Affairs where such decision materially and adversely affects the rights of the individual.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF APPEALS THAT CAN BE SUBMITTED?
There are two main types of appeals that may be submitted:
• One that is directed to the Director-General of Home Affairs. This appeal is submitted after receiving an initial rejection of an application.
• One directed to the Minister of Home Affairs. This appeal can be submitted if a negative decision is received on the first appeal submitted.
