Applying for the South Africa Permanent Residence Permit
In January 2022, Permanent Residence Permit Applications in South Africa reopened after COVID paused applications for certain types of visas in the country.
A Permanent Residence Permit in South Africa has several advantages over other long-term types of visas, perhaps the most significant of which include security from future changes to immigration law and fewer banking and financial limitations.
As a South African Permanent Residence Permit holder, you also benefit from having as good a chance as an SA citizen when applying for jobs.
A South African Permanent Residence Permit comes with an RSA ID number, simplifying many administrative activities, like investing in retirement annuities and applying for home loans.
Furthermore, your immediate family can join you in South Africa.
Your spouse or partner can apply for permission to work full-time or part-time.
Currently, the Permanent Residence Permit allows for a path to citizenship. If this changes in the near future, please be sure to look out for updates on this page.
