Holistic Expatriation Solutions

General Work Visa

A General Work Visa may be issued to any foreign national who intends to take up employment in South Africa on the basis of a firm offer of employment. The amendment of the Immigration Act in 2014, saw the introduction of a Department of Labour Certificate process for those who wish to apply for a General Work Visa and this includes applications for renewals.

Corporate Visa

A Corporate Visa is a temporary work authorisation granted not to a foreign employee, but to a corporate entity (e.g. a mine) to employ a pre-determined number of skilled/semi-skilled/unskilled workers. This visa enables a corporate applicant to employ a large number of foreign nationals for a specific period.

Permanent Residency Permit

Law change to discontinue Permanent Residency is imminent. If you are interested in applying, now is the time. Applications for permanent residency in South Africa are considered in terms of Section 26 (Direct Residency Permits) and Section 27 (Residency-on-Other-Grounds Permits) of the Immigration Act 2002 (Act No 13 of 2002) and read with Regulation 33 of the Immigration Regulations.
