SOUTH AFRICA – Fewer Documentation Requirements for Critical Skills Work Visa

Recently amended immigration laws have resulted in eased documentation requirements for Critical Skills Work Visa applicants. These applicants are required to submit proof of registration application with a professional body recognized by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) or another relevant government department, written confirmation of his/her skills and/or qualifications, and proof of appropriate post-qualification experience. However, the change dictates that if the applicant has proof of an application for registration with a relevant SAQA accredited professional body, board, or council, he/she is no longer required to obtain the other two items to complete his/her Critical Skills Work Visa application. This change should ease much of the burden of collecting documentation and is effective immediately.
