Internationalise Yourself, Your Wealth, and Your Business

The mid-90s saw scores of young professionals arriving in the UK from South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Among them was Reg Bamford, a South African, who immediately saw the need for a service that could help expats like him with their visas, tax affairs, and forex. He founded a small company called 1st Contact. As more and more of these expats chose to make the UK a permanent home, they found that their financial and tax affairs got more complex. 1st Contact continued to adapt to cater to the increasingly sophisticated challenges their clients faced and became Sable International.

By bringing on board dozens of cross-border experts, Reg Bamford’s brainchild became a company spanning three continents with offices in the UK, Europe, Australia, and across Africa. Sable International is today known as the cross-border expert that offers a host of services empowering businesses and individuals to overcome the challenges of global trade and citizenship.

These services include:

  • UK and Australian immigration
  • British nationality
  • Golden visas and citizenship-by- investment
  • Studying abroad
  • Offshore real estate investment
  • Business relocation
  • Cross-border wealth management
  • Global tax advice
  • Forex and international payments
  • UK accounting services for SMEs
  • UK corporate immigration
  • Immigration advice and services for UK schools

For South Africans looking to “internationalise” themselves, Sable International is the one- stop-shop. This month, Sable International is hosting a Global Citizenship and Emigration Expo in Johannesburg, Durban, Gqeberha, and Cape Town. .

A World-Leading Expert on British Nationality

If you’re a South African and you, or a family member, have a UK-born parent or grandparent, you might have inherited British citizenship without knowing.

Philip Gamble, a Senior Partner at Sable International, is widely regarded as a world-leading expert in UK immigration and British citizenship, with a particular focus on complex colonial claims.

He has represented the industry as a whole with the Home Office After-Entry Committee and Advisory Committee of the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner. He has assisted the Home Office with the formulation of their Policy Guidance and has been actively involved in individual cases that have resulted in changes in the law.

If you’re currently in South Africa, Philip and his team will be hosting free one-on-one consultations as part of the Global Citizenship and Emigration Expo. If you’re outside of South Africa, you can fill in a free online assessment to discover your options.
