Spousal Visa: Spouse / Life partner of a Citizen or Permanent Resident
Are you married to a South African and wishing to immigrate to South Africa? If your spouse or life partner is a South African Citizen or a Permanent Resident, you can apply for a South African Spousal Visa to be deemed eligible for immigration. Having a Spousal Visa will not only let you reside in South Africa with your spouse, but you will also be able to work, study or set up a business, which is a huge advantage.
You may also qualify for Permanent Residency if you have been in a relationship with a South African citizen for five years or more, this applied to both married and unmarried couples.
If you are an unmarried couple but have been in a relationship with a South African Citizen for two years or more, you might qualify for a Life Partner Visa.
