How long for Visa processing for Foreign Workers

Good day,

I've been offered a 3 years contract and was requested to submit a bunch of documents for Visa and Work Permit application which is currently done by my new employer.

My question is, how long does the whole process takes?

Appreciate your kind response.


No defined time for processing. Can take weeks or months.

Good morning,

Thanks for the reply.

Been informed that my WP for 3 years is approved!

So it took almost 2 months, now I was advised for Visa stamping.


1-2 months for work permit and visa processing.
