Applying for the South Africa Retirement Visa
South Africa’s climate is a big drawcard for people on the verge of retirement.
The country is especially attractive to people who chase the summer, spending half the year in South Africa and the other half on the sunny side of Europe.
A South African Retirement Visa is perfect for those who want to immigrate and retire in the country permanently, as well as those that follow summer. One of the great things about a South African Retirement Visa is that retirees can come and go without constantly submitting applications for visa extensions.
Please note: If you aren’t on a valid Long-Term Visa in South Africa when you apply for a Retired Person’s Visa, you must apply within your country of origin or permanent residence.
Note also: A Retired Person’s Visa is only for people who want to immigrate to South Africa purely to enjoy their retirement and not for people who want official employment, formalised education, and long-term volunteering at any organisation.
