Moving to South Africa

“The Rainbow Nation” of South Africa has two sides. It is an amazing country famous for its natural beauty and culture; but it also a country of great contrast of rich and poor. Within Africa, the gap between poverty and wealth is most notable in South Africa. Your decision to move to incredible  South Africa is one you will not regret.

Getting permission to live in South Africa

Nationals of the United Kingdom who hold valid passports do not require a Visa to enter South Africa for a maximum of up to ninety (90) days. For those who wish to live and work in South Africa for an agreed period of time, Global Visas can help them to secure a South African work permit. Global Visas allow candidates to work for a specific employer in a specific pre-arranged position.

Getting South African Citizenship

If you were born outside of South Africa, but one or both parents were South African citizens at the time of your birth, then you are able to get South African citizenship.  There are three ways in which a person can become a South African citizen:
  • by birth
  • by descent
  • by naturalisation

Getting a job in South Africa

Getting a job in South Africa can be difficult due to the high unemployment rate. One of your challenges is to  convince the employer as to why they should hire you in place of a South African. Should the South African government sees you as an individual with what they view as exceptional skills, there are opportunities to get a work permit before a new job is found.

South African cultural differences

The way of living turns more slowly than that in the UK. Similar to other South European countries, things will likely not work as fast as you used to in the UK. When you are dealing with South Africans one thing may become clear. They are very helpful but the service orientation levels may differ from those that you are used to.
