South Africa General Work Permit

If you already have a job offer letter from a South Africa employer, we can process your visa. Since you already have a job offer in hand, you can go for General Work Permit. The General Work Permit is issued in the name of the employer, and it shall lapse if, within six months of its issuance, and within every year thereafter, its holder fails to submit satisfactory proof that he or she is still employed and of the terms and conditions of his or her employment, including the job description.

For VISA processing, you should be able to get all the required documentation from future employer in support of your employment. Visa fee payable to the Minister of Home Affairs is R1520 (i.e. INR 9822, approx). It’s also mandatory to go for qualifications assessment by SAQA. Application fee for SAQA can cost anywhere from R440 to R880 (INR 2843.00 to INR 5686.00) depending up on how fast we want the processing to be done. Postage and handling charges will cost up to additional R365 (INR 2358).
