Immigration to South Africa
In order for one to immigrate and live in South Africa, a person must obtain permanent residence. All applications for permanent residence are considered on merit by an autonomous statutory body, the Immigrants Selection Board.
Applications for permanent residence MUST be lodged from current country of residence or the nearest South African Mission.
As policy is subject to change we strongly suggest that all prospective applicants contact the SA Embassy with regard to their applications. Please contact the SA Embassy during the following Hours: 13h00 – 16h00, Monday to Friday.

Immigration Generally
The Republic of South Africa can accommodate only a certain number of immigrants. There are valid reasons for this. In the first instance South Africa has a vast reserve of unskilled and semi-skilled workers who are entitled to employment opportunities and to an economically viable lifestyle for themselves and their families. For this reason no one in the unskilled and semi-skilled categories will normally be accepted as an immigrant worker in South Africa.

Because of the considerable need for the creation of job opportunities for South African workers, as well as for their training and development, it will be understood and appreciated that the RSA cannot afford to grant permits for permanent residence to persons who are not seriously committed to immigrating to the country and to investing their assets, skills, knowledge and experience for the benefit of themselves and the people of South Africa. Once a permit for permanent residence has been granted, permanent residence must be taken up within six months and if any extension of this period is applied for, due cognizance will be taken of the reasons for such request and of any assets already transferred to and productively invested in South Africa.

Basic Principles and Policies on Immigration
The present immigration policy places emphasis on the broadening of the economic base of South Africa by concentrating especially on the obtaining of those immigrants who are in a position to render a meaningful contribution in this regard.

The South African immigration policy is embodied in Act 96 of 1991, which prescribes certain requirements which are to be met by an applicant who wishes to immigrate permanently to South Africa. The requirements are:
  • The applicant must be of good character;
  • He/she must be a desirable inhabitant;
  • He/she must not be likely to be harmful to the welfare of the Republic of South Africa; and,
  • Most important; he/she must not follow an occupation in which there is already a sufficient number of persons available to meet the requirements of the country.
These requirements are aimed at individual selection and all applications for permanent residence are considered on merit by an autonomous statutory body, the Immigrants Selection Board.

In particular cognizance should be taken of the legal provision which places an obligation on the Board to ensure that only those applications are approved where the applicants will follow occupations for which a proven demand exists in the RSA.

This provision brings about that a policy of individual selection is being applied. The overriding consideration should always be the protection of the inherent rights of South African citizens or permanent residents to employment opportunities which may exist in the country.

The ongoing unfavourable position in South Africa as regards large-scale unemployment and a downturn in the economy, together with an increasing demand for socio-economic services and facilities make it all the more essential that a policy of careful selection with due regard to the existing stringent requirements should be pursued.

Categories of Immigration/Immigration Procedure by Each Category
In terms of the various sub-sections of section 25 of the Act, persons qualifying for immigration permits may be divided into the following groupings:

  • Persons following an occupation either in the employment of someone else or self-employed. Such persons are divided into the following categories viz: Workers; and self-employed persons.

  • Persons who will not be following an occupation, but are desirable in that they will contribute to the economy and welfare of the Republic. Such persons are divided into two (2) categories, viz.: Financially independent persons; and retired persons.

  • Spouses and dependent children of persons residing permanently and lawfully in the Republic.

  • Destitute, aged or infirm persons who are financially unable to sustain themselves and have immediate members of families lawfully and permanently resident in the Republic, with the means to maintain such members and who will not be following an occupation. Such persons are categorized as: Sponsored persons.

  • Lastly, economically active persons who are unable to submit permanent offers of employment, and are financially assisted by parents, brothers/sisters who are South African citizens or permanent residents: Family reunion scheme.

Rights and Responsibilities of Approved Immigrants
An immigration permit holder is not automatically a South African citizen but may apply for naturalization after a period of five (5) years continuous residence. A permanent resident may not qualify for a permanent position in State service, as South African citizenship is a pre-requisite for such posts. A permanent resident:

• does not have an automotive right to vote in elections; he/she is not entitled to a South African passport; and may lose the right to permanent residence after being absent from the Republic for a continuous period of five (5) years. Under certain circumstances a permanent resident may be liable to deportation.

With regard to responsibilities, permanent residents are expected to be faithful to and law-abiding inhabitants of the Republic and respect the rights of others as contained in South Africa's Bill of Rights.
Fees payable are adjusted on an annual basis. For further information please contact the South African Embassy - Consular Section.
