Thanx for your help and advise everyone. I have looked on the Home Office site but couldn't find anything specific. I was thinking of them comming over on a visitor's visa so they can look for work and ask the employer to apply for them for a work permit and then send them back to get the paperwork sorted but we don't have that much money available to help them.
They would still have to have jobs on that side if they come over on a Visitor's Visa and my one son is unemployed. The other one is doing this secretly, coz the people he lives with threatened to have him fired where he is working now if he attempts to come to England. They both have to work for free for the couple they living with and they won't allow my one son to go look for work coz they say he has to work for the husband to pay his stay with them. My eldest have to pay R1500 per month board and lodging over and above working all his free time for this man. This is so hard. We can't adopt them now as they are over the adoption age.
How do we go about them studying here and what will that cost. Do we have to do the paperwork in SA or can they do it here when they arrive?
I'm just so desperate now. My kids are being used as slaves there and I can't do anything to help them. I feel so helpless and it is my duty to protect my kids and I can't even do it. I can't contact the people coz then my kids will be without a place to stay and they will take it out on them. I want my kids with me but the immigration rules make it so hard to achieve.
I'm sorry that I'm whining in your ears with all my problems but I need help desperately and you people are so kind with the advise.
Thanx for listening.
