Good day, How are you? I am a Hungarian citizen contemplating to move to Cape Town on a critical skills work visa. However, I have some questions and was hoping you might be able to help. I have a master's degree from a Hungarian university (as an English and German teacher) and 14 years work experience at a multinational company (in customer service, data analysis, project management, process improvement). For the past 2.5 years I've been self-employed (registered freelancer in Hungary). I checked the critical skills list and these are the occupations where I have experience: Programme or Project Mgr: for 2.5 years I worked as a project manager for amultinational company. I did take courses on project management, too. Customer Service Manager/Call or Contact Centre Mgr: I worked 10+ years in Customer Operations that had call centre teams and also back office shared services teams. For 3 years I was a manager, my team was responsible for planning and organizing the daily operations of these call centre and back office teams, making sure service levels and performance met the expectations. Inbound/Outbound Contact Centre Consultant (German): I have experience in customer service (processing orders, inquiries, etc over the phone and via email). I have a master's degree in German, I speak the language fluently. Based on the above information, do you think I am eligible for a critical skills visa? If yes, what is the exact process of obtaining one? And how long does it take to get it based on your experience? Thank you very much in advance. Kind regards, Zsuzsanna Gonter
