I heard that there are so many people emigrating this year that there is a big backlog at Onderstepoort for doing blood tests for the animals. Where it used to be 4 weeks, it is now 4-5 months.

We used Global Paws. They screwed up the paperwork and delayed our three cats and a dog by a month in SA. They were supposed to depart with us.

In the last 3 years did not know of any other investor visas for NZ. In the last 2 months x 4. That is R 30 mil invested in specific investments required by NZ, Plus house, car, move, containers, living cost. Normally investor visa will not go and work for a boss. so whatever he /she is going to do setup cost. Estimate R 50 mil a pop. My containers was R 300 000 plus R 50 000 insurance. The part we worried about was between JHB and Durban, Mooiriver strikes, and then when the containers left, flooding in Durban. Minimum for a house/ timber box/park home, were you can park your containers R 5 mil. Looks as if it is going to cost me R 300 000.00 to get the Alouette III on the NZ register, paperwork only.

Impressions so far; in the beginning the different every day things, round about- road circles, efficiency at roadworthy, drivers license, council,receiver, banks,clean, road maintenance everywhere all the time, clean dams, rivers,beaches,sea. NZ disaster response and drills, police force that works.
Long term 6 months later; you can leave anything anywhere and it will not disappear, makes you chill, really chill. Lose your wallet somewhere, it will find its way to you. Go to town with the bicycle and catch a lift back. next morning discover bicycle gone, you forgot it in town, on the beach, wherever, you will find it there.
Had a flat car battery, tried to walk to my next door farmer 500 meter, a lady saw me going in the different direction, stopped turned around and gave me a 250meter lift. on the way back just out the gate, lift .

Mentally, My mother moved from Netherlands to SA, 70 years ago, and she is still writes spells talks dutch, and will stay like that, moved to SA when still young. So even emigrating, I think you will stay a South African, no matter what. It is one hell of an adventure and experience. Of all the broken up families we met on the different flights, we managed to be together as a family.

I see now thanks. Almost the same tax policy: SA corporate 28%, Spain 25%... SAincome 45%, Spain 45%...SA VAT15, Spain 21%.. But if you do business in the Canaries or Melila its about 5%..

SA no siesta, Spain siesta 2pm-5pm.. 8)

That doesn't apply to everyone. SWMBO came from UK (England) when she was 21, now she's more Saffer than biltong and braaivleis. She's definitely #Imstaying and her English background was all the female equivalent of "Eton and rowing for Oxbridge" etc etc, so not driven to come to SA by monetary concerns.

Some time ago I once asked her whether she would ever consider emigrating from SA. Her answer was pretty clear: "You can go without me." You couldn't get her out of this joint with a crowbar.

She was absolutely delighted with the RWC result 8)

In fact I would earnestly recommend to people emigating that they assimilate into their new countries ASAP. It gives a much better, brighter, looking-forward approach to the whole endeavour.

Yes - not SA - Zimbabwe. The kids were rehomed almost immediately in a nice home, but still...

They (Global Paws) quoted double than my cheapest quote.
My cheapest quote was Travel Animal Services and eveybody raved about them so I chose them.
Excellent service.

After I read your post I found an article on a 23 year old woman who left her 3 months old baby in Portugal going to the UK. Also on the airport. :evil:

Yes, it seems the parents were broke and could not cope.
