To help clarify the transaction, we have put together a “visa-vs-passport” page. This serves to help explain the difference and working relationship between visas and passports.

Further to this, we have put together a “frequently asked questions” page with very helpful content. This content serves to help clarify questions like “ do I need a visa? ”.

Getting started with UK visas, we need to clarify what we mean when we say: UK.

UK obviously stands for United Kingdom. It consists of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

With this UK definition in mind, Move Up help service applicants in gaining permission to pass through the UK border. This permission is given in the form of a visa (travel document) placed inside the applicants’ passport.

Move Up’s service offerings:

Work Permits

Opportunities for South Africans looking to live and work in the UK. Provision for short term and long term offerings are available.


Visitor Visas

South Africans looking to visit the UK. That includes short stop overs, transit, leisure and business related visits.


Student Visas

Further your career demand with internationally recognized tertiary qualifications. Often viewed as global thought leaders, the UK offers some of the worlds best qualifications.


Marriage Rights

Family dependency is covered under these provisions. Therefore child dependents also fall under these family relocation provisions.


Highly Valued Migrants

Provisions for High Net Worth individuals and scientists. These are migrants that the UK government are looking to attract (to stimulate their economy).


British Passport

This applies to renewals lodged in South Africa as well as first time claims. We service SA based submissions, dealing directly to Her Majesties Passport Office.


Birth Rights

Ancestral birth rights place emphasis on place and date of birth. To make ancestry claim, applicants need to present evidence of birth records.
