complex legal problems
A foreign national who intends to visit South Africa or to be resident in South Africa needs to be in possession of a valid visa or permit for them to be legally admitted into South Africa. Under the Immigration of Act of 2002, as amended, there are various visa and permit options available to foreigners who intend to visit South Africa for a brief period, as well as for those who intend to reside in South Africa, for work or to enjoy retirement, or to engage in business here.
It is crucial that foreigners get the right visa or permit that allows them to carry out their intended activity in South Africa. Failure to get the right visa or permit may result in the foreigner not being admitted into South Africa or being unable to carry out his or her intended activity in South Africa. In either event, extra costs are incurred for applying for the correct visa.
It is essential to get the right visa before proceeding to South Africa because certain visas cannot be applied for from within South Africa.
