I’ve been working with Kristin Rasool at IBN for about six months now. I was born in South Africa but my parents immigrated to the USA and I’m trying to re-establish residency. I started talking to Kristin several months before heading to Cape Town SA where we met for lunch. I really cannot say enough about the professionalism and promptness of Kristen and this company! I don’t know how on earth I would be able to navigate this process without them. Kristin, I’d like to personally thank you for your enduring patience with me! You are fantastic and thank you IBN!

Kristin Rasool has been immensely helpful in providing information and outlining options for a complicated and incredibly time sensitive matter. To feel in good hands during such super stressful situation has been a tremendous relief.

Excellent serivce and expertise. IBN assisted us with registration of a company in South Africa as subsidiary of a German mother company. They were most professional and knew everything about current legislation in South Africa with regards to company registration, labour law, immigration and visa issue for staff and team members from Germany as well as consulting on how best to get South African staff working and training in Germany. Besides this they also gave invaluable advise on political, social and economic situations in South Africa. I would highly recommend to get in touch with them. They saved us headaches, money and time!

I can fully recommend their services, always fast reply and very professional and helpful. Many many thanks!

Thank you for easing our worries on immigrating to South Africa. Precise information and clear details on what process must be met to immigrate. I am American and my partner is German. We have not started our process to move to South Africa, but I am confident that with the help and guidance of the IBN Immigration Solutions Team it will be smooth. Warm and friendly staff. Thank you for our first journey.

Thank you IBN Namibia for your superb support during the process of obtaining my permanent residence permit! Step by step guidance, quick feedback and endless patience with all my queries to ensure a complete application. It was honestly the best service I received from any agent/agency in Namibia for the past 16 years that I needed visas and permits. I appreciate you so much!

From the first email, our consultant Hannah Mminele, has been with us every step of the way, from organising our documents and keeping us up to date with the embassy and covid regulations and answering the thousands of questions I had. She’s been so patient with me and I am so grateful for it.
The only unfortunate part of IBN is that they are one of the very few service companies in SA that gets it all right. Great communication. Knowledgable. Trustworthy. Overall great service. Using their service for a second time now. Would definitely recommend 👌🏼

So first of all Hannah is a wonderful to work with and reflects upon IBN very positively.She is exceedingly accomodating and graciously follows up on tasks and deliverables - both of which take such a load off my shoulders as a working mother of four operating across three time zones!Not only has she helped us out in a pinch, above and beyond her purview and duty, she and the IBN staff have also guided us on how to manage our unique situation.If you're looking for a warm and caring relationship with a law firm that is competent enough to handle whatever is thrown at them, my husband and I wholeheartedly endorse them!!

Hi Saudikah.
Hope all is well, just to let you know that I received my RETIREMENT PERMIT from the EDB in Port Louis, Mauritius earlier today.
Sincere thanks to you and all your team in Cape Town and Mauritius for all your incredible professionalism and work efficiency in enabling me and my wife Claudia to achieve our intended goal to immigrate to Mauritius soon.
I thank you once again, Merci.

Best regards,
Adv. Marco Gianoglio

Thank you Saudikah! Your service has not disappointed me for the past three VISAs I have acquired over the years. Exceptional Work! 

Best regards,
Tawanda Madzingaidzo

Thank you for holding my hand all the way through and being a shoulder to cry on!
I don’t even know what to say to you. I am so thankful that you were there during this trying time.

Best regards,
Justine Cresswell

I want to tell you, you REALLY have been an amazing help! Keep giving incredible customer service, it’s what life is about, THANK YOU.

Kind regards,
Janet Modra

I would like to thank you for helping us in setting up the SA business so fast and hassle free. I think Stephanie did excellent work.

Johannes Linde

I would like to thank IBN, and especially Saudikah , for being so professional , putting in so much energy so that i can sort my visa issues out and giving me so many details and transparency. I would recommend her to any foreigner that needs help with immigration. Once again, thank you.

Florin Neacsu

I would like to thank you for the incredible support during my Visa-renewal process. During the whole process I felt in good hands, you were always available to reply to my emails and returning calls when you weren’t available immediately. Whenever I had a question, I always received a very good and clear answer regarding the complicated SA immigration law. Before using your Company, I had at least 3 or 4 different agents in the past, with the result of no work done, no customer service, and most of all I ended up sitting for hours at the immigration office by myself to sort the Visa out last minute. Compare to my previous experiences, this last one was smooth and simple. No stress, no worries! I thank you for the exceptional performance and most of all for the professional but still very friendly and human customer service received: something I value and it very rare to find.
I will definitely ask you for your service again, to help me with my permanent residency!

Best regards,
Antonino Allegra

I would like to thank IBN for their outstanding professionalism and hard work. Their service was truly excellent. In particular I would like to thank Inna Podsekina for her patience and kindness during the application service. Getting my permanent residency approved after only 6 months is fantastic! I believe IBN offers the best immigration service in Cape Town, because they really do give you “peace of mind” and the feeling you are in good hands. I will most of certainly recommend IBN to anyone who needs help with immigrating to South Africa.

Kindest Regards
Monique Reischmann

It was an absolutely pleasure my experience with IBN. I have only great things to say about them and specially about Sue Allan, who was always very efficient, fast, friendly, always willing to find solutions and to offer her help and support . I used their services when I moved to South Africa and thanks to them ( Specially to Sue Allan) I manage to get my permanent residence in the country. I would highly recommend IBN services to anyone. They are the most reliable and professional company I came across. Thank you, thank you so much for all your help!!!

Laura Bortot

Great. Thank you very much. You are awesome ? It is really a pleasure to work with you guys. Nice, that the service was not just super friendly, but also very efficient and successful. I will do Permanent Residence with you as well, promised.

South Africa – First in Bedding (Pty) Ltd. is a supplier of high quality duvets and pillows for the hotel business, hospitals and private households.

Our success in South Africa is also based on the cooperation with IBN Consulting and its director Andreas Krensel. To expand and open up a new business segment we consulted IBN Consulting in 2007 to provide us with a report about the economic situation in South Africa, the labour, corporate and residential law and the role of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) as well as the calculation of costs. This data served our management as a comprehensive and convincing base to distribute our goods in South Africa.

Thanks to IBN and their global network, getting the residence permits for our directors was fast and uncomplicated. Their extensive service also contains establishing the legal structures, handling of taxes, finalizing labour and lease contracts as well as helpful business tips regarding payment targets, customs and the import of our products.

Even after starting our operational business in South Africa, Andreas Krensel and his team always were a competent and conscientious partner which we could rely on.

Additionally IBN Consulting worked out the ideal BBBEE-Strategy which is essential for selling our goods in South Africa. The communication with the highly qualified team always worked flawless. The high degree of competence combined with passion for their work make Andreas Krensel and his team the perfect business partner to be and stay successful with your business in South Africa.

Sanders South Africa – First in Bedding

It’s wonderful for an advertiser to be able to fully support an advertising message. It makes it easy to praise a product or a company. IBN has often assisted us during our time in Cape Town. For a digital agency that was established in Munich and continues to count renowned companies in Germany among its clients there are a lot of potential pitfalls in the areas of labour law and international agreements.
Fortunately we only heard about these through hearsay, since IBN and Andreas Krensel have taken care of everything – often long before we were even aware of the existence of a potential problem. Fast and efficient. It doesn’t get any better.

Not only did he help us as a company (General Terms and Conditions, BBBEE consulting, Lease Agreements), but also several of our employees. For some of our positions we are reliant on specialists from Germany. Thanks to IBN we have been able to offer an exceptional service to our preferred candidates when it came to arranging their legal entry into the country or even a long-term stay.

I am sending you our best wishes and many thanks from all of us at GSDH.


Our Organisation has been working with IBN and Sue-Allan Mehl for the past 2 years. We have consistently been satisfied and impressed with the qualitity of work IBN has delivered and the way in which they conduct business.
We are happy to recommend IBN and Sue-Allan in particular to other organisations that require immigration service.

Our Organisation is an international medical humanitarian organisation which seeks to uphold international quality standards in our life-saving medical work. We expect the same of our service providers. We are happy to count IBN and Sue-Allan among the few service providers who meet with our standards.

We would like to bring to your attention ther willingness to always go the extra mile when delivering services.

Yours sincerely,
Zoya Naidoo, Head of Admin & Finance

I would like to thank the entire IBN Team for their professionalism and efficiency.

IBN Consultants accompagnied me with the setting up of my business in South Africa and determining the right strategy to be operational as quickly as possible. The service provided by the consultants is outstanding and the follow-up of actions was a great relief during the whole process. The IBN team really surpassed my expecations.

Special thanks to Teri-Anne and Stephanie. I will strongly recommend you:-)

Kind regards
Damien Houlle

Dear IBN

I have used IBN Consulting & Immigration for the past 24 months and I’m very satisfied with your service. IBN delivers a professional, efficient service, which I find very accommodating. I am particularly pleased with your pro active approach and assistance in finding solutions for difficult situations.

Your consultants have always been friendly, kind and informative, which I find to be a plus point as well. I would certainly recommend IBN Consulting for any immigration related issue.

Many thanks for your assistance in making the process as smooth as possible.

Fabian Goodwin Operation Manager

I have nothing but great things to say about IBN, their staff and competence. I used them when I moved to South Africa and used them again to get a spousal Visa and work permit. Their are ON TOP of their game. I owe them a lot! If you have any need to travel to SA or open new markets for your products, IBN is all you need.

Zach Powers

I found the service we received at IBN to be very professional and of the highest quality. We were always kept informed of proceedings and the friendliness of the staff has made the entire experience a very pleasant one. I highly recommend IBN to anyone that can make use of the excellent services.

Louis-John Kuylaars

Hey, I’m so thrilled I found your website. I was looking around for South Africa-related weblogs when I arrived at your one. I’m aware that South Africa is a mammoth and fascinating place, and I would like to say congrats for a primo post and an all round fabulous blog. I count on seeing a ton more from you in a little while, so please keep up the first-class posts!


A year ago I settled with my family back in South Africa where my wife is from. Being married to a national doesn’t spare you from tedious paper work as well as long hours spent at the immigration office. Having already been through it a few years back, I didn’t want to repeat the unpleasant experience. Registering a company was also on my list. IBN was recommended to me by a friend to whom I am very thankful.

They offer very efficient and friendly services, seem to have a thorough understanding of the South African laws and made my life simple.

It is my turn now to recommend them!
