    My name was given twice on work permit(like steyn smith steyn smith) as i have given the name again on the last name, because i don't have a last name on passport.Do u guys know how to change name on it?Hope it won't create any problems in future

  10. Submitted on March 1, so far no update.
    It's a bit taunting since I have a job offer pending... HR is waiting for this work permit to "finalize paperworks".
  11. Congrats! I have no idea how to help you with your name issue though, hope somebody else is able to answer!
