Cash in your SA retirement annuities

We are financial emigration specialists and will help you cash in your South African retirement annuities, pension or provident fund before the generally accepted retirement age of 55.

In 2008 the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) implemented a law change that allows South Africans who have financially emigrated the ability to access their retirement annuities before they mature.

Financial emigration is a service offered by our sister company, Sable International, to help South Africans cash in and access their retirement annuities and other funds.

Sable International has helped South Africans abroad and at home with financial and migration solutions for more than two decades. They are uniquely equipped to help you navigate through this complex and time consuming process.

Don't let your retirement savings be at the mercy of the unpredictable Rand

We have some exciting news
for all our visas clients...

1st Contact Visas is rebranding to Sable International!

For the last 18 months we've been slowly merging with our big brother, Sable International. Over the next year we're going to complete that merger. This will in no way affect your visa, ILR, citizenship, passport or work permit applications.

Your caseworker will not be going anywhere as the entire 1st Contact team will be in the same roles at Sable International. You'll still get that great 1st Contact Visas service, just under a new name.

We'll be keeping you in the loop as we prepare for the next exciting phase in this rebranding.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us directly.
