Every foreign worker in South Africa needs a work permit, which
the South Africans call work visas. As in most countries, applicants must prove they are not taking a job that a South African
can perform. However, the rules aren't clear-cut, and the final
decision falls on the discretion of individual officials, so expat
hopefuls should rely on employers to untangle the red tape. The
first application must always be made at a mission outside of
South Africa. Travelers on visit visas cannot convert them to work
visas while in the country.
Available permits include the General Work and Critical Skills
Work visas, good for up to five years. Multinational companies
often use the Intra-company Transfer Work Visa, valid for up to
four years, to transfer employees between countries.
