Accompanying Spouse Visa: Spouse of a Work Visa holder
As the spouse of a work visa holder, you are required by law to apply for a visitor visa in terms of section 10(A) read together with section 11(1)(a) of the Immigration Act of 2002, as amended.
This visa allows you to lawfully reside with your spouse while he/she is on a work assignment in South Africa. This visa does not allow you to work, study or run a business in SA. If you want to work, study or run a business you need to be given authorisation by applying for a visitor visa with work, study or business authorisation in terms of section 11(6)(b) of the Immigration Act of 2002, as amended.
Would you like your children to accompany you on your work assignment in South Africa? You will find all the necessary information and requirements on our Accompanying Minor Child Page.
