      Hi Hugo

      I came across your name on the forums and I am hoping you can provide some guidance.
       
      My wife and I would like to initiate the process to financially immigrate from South Africa. I have provided some more information regarding our situation below. 
       
      We immigrated to Australia on a 189 PR visa in August 2018
      I have been employed since November here in Australia, my wife is on home duties. 
      We both have Mercantile bank accounts which we have been using to transfer ZAR to AUD through Rand Rescue. (I am happy to close these if going through FNB is easier)
      We both have retirement annuities with PPS investments (roughly R250 000 total)
      We both have cheque accounts with FNB, I also have a credit card with FNB. 
      We have a joint bank account with Commonwealth Bank in AUS. 
       
      I approached one or two financial immigration agents, however that would cost me nearly 10% of my investment in fees. So I am hoping to tackle the process myself. 

      If you have any advice you could possibly give on the process and the way forward it would be greatly appreciated.

      Lastly as it is almost tax season in South Africa, should we proceed with submitting a final tax return to SARS? We were both employed up and till end July 2018. 
       
      Kind regards
      Leroy & Claudia du Plessis

      Hi Hugo,
       
      Just a question, please?
       
      We are doing the financial emmigration through FNB. My husband already has an existing account with FNB. Do we need to submit 2 seperate applications or can we just submit 1 application as a family unit? Do we both need an FNB account?
       
      Thank you very much.

      Good Day,
       
      When lodging your visa, are you required to include a cover letter that is like an index of all your submissions.
