Overview

The study permit is awarded to students who intend to study courses of more than 3 months duration in the institution that come under primary, secondary or tertiary educational institutions.

These visa services are not designed to provide a route to permanent residence and are granted for the duration of the course of study.

The students cannot take up a full time job but can go for a part time job. However, no restriction upon working hours will be imposed in vacation periods if a letter of permission is obtained from the educational institution.

Documents Required

 

For South African STUDENT VISA following documents must be included:

A letter from the educational institution which will act as Confirmation of Acceptance and which details accommodation arrangements for the candidate.

  • Evidence of the applicant's ability to wholly support themselves financially.
  • A valid return ticket.
  • Medical insurance and a statement from the applicant's doctor.
  • Passport valid for no less than 30 days after completion of studies.
  • For applicants over 18 years of age police clearance is required for all previous countries in which they have resided for a year or more.
  • For minors, a letter of consent from the parents will also be necessary.

In addition, a range of documentation including the applicant's birth certificate and photographs will be required.

South Africa study visas are granted for a one-year period and can be extended as necessary in order to complete the relevant course. Much like working permits; permits to study are valid only for the original course for which they were obtained. Any change of institution or course will require a new permit.

Spouse and dependent immigration

As discussed, a visa for study in South Africa does not constitute a route to permanent residence and is regarded as part of the temporary resident permit group of South African visa services.

However, since a course of study may last for an extended period, spouse immigration and dependent immigration are permitted where applicable and applicant's immediate relatives may immigrate to South Africa for the same duration as the principle holder.
