South Africa General Work Permit
General South Africa Work Permits usually entitle our clients to live and work in gorgeous South Africa for a period of up to three years. After the three years is up, you will be able to apply for subsequent renewals of the visa should you still qualify under the entry criteria. Once you have spent five or more years in the country, you will be able to apply for a permanent residency, making SA your permanent home. If you would like any further information about relocating to South Africa more permanently, please take our free online assessment and one of our team will be in touch to discuss the best immigration option for you.
To be considered for this work permit, you will need to have already secured a job offer from a company based in South Africa. But finding the right job for you in SA is now even easier thanks to Brighter Visas’ dedicated network of international recruiters; we have been helping people to look for work in South Africa since 1996, so have built up a great network of recruiters who are looking to hire international talent! We keep our clients constantly updated with the very best jobs that suit them, so they can apply quickly and easily.
General Work Permits are a great way to relocate to SA because they do not require you to demonstrate any maintenance. This is when a client must be able to demonstrate an ability to financially support themselves for the duration of the visa. Not only that but you are also allowed to bring any dependents with you on this visa. However, your dependents will not be allowed to attend school or work under the terms of this visa and will cost more in processing fees for each additional dependent. For more information on getting the right visas for your dependents, or for any more information, please get in touch with us right now by filling in our free online assessment.
Working with Brighter Visas, we could expect to have your General Work Permit for South Africa processed in just a few months, making it one of the quickest ways to immigrate to SA! However, it is worth pointing out that the timescales for processing are controlled by the SA authorities, not by Brighter Visas. This is why we are unable to give assurances regarding processing times, and likewise, government fees as they are subject to change. For this reason, we would advise you not to book any tickets for travel or commit yourself financially to anything which may be negatively affected by a delay in processing.
