South Africa Now Offers a Remote Work Visa for Foreigners

The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) on 28 March 2024 Gazetted a set of Immigration Regulations which allowed foreigners to come work and stay in South Africa on a Remote Work Visa.  Following a press briefing by Minister Aaron Motsoaledi of the Department of Home Affairs on 9 April, these regulations have been subsequently withdrawn. However, according to the Minister, the DHA is in the process of finalising the regulations and will gazette a revised version by next week after taking into consideration comments received.
