Are you an engineer, scientist or IT expert? If yes, then you should consider applying for a South African Critical Skills Work Visa because South Africa wants you!
The Critical Skills Work Visa was implemented in May 2014. It’s based on a list of skills that are scarce in SA. Apart from the skills we’ve listed above, the list includes occupations such as financial investment advisors, foreign language speakers and architects to name a few.
Although this particular work visa has been around for a number years, there’s still some confusion around what it allows, its benefits and the criteria. It’s with this in mind that we have decided to clear this up for you.
