Keywords: Work Permit, Business Permit

The General Work Visa is also the most difficult visa and permit for which to apply. Contrary to its name, this visa is not ‘general’ at all, and does not allow applicants to work anywhere or for any company in South Africa. In fact, it has some of the most stringent requirements of all visas, and would only be issued as a last resort, should you fail to qualify for other work visa categories. Generally speaking if you are a foreigner who is still in the process of securing employment you will not be able to apply for a General Work Visa. In this case please have a look at our foreign language job site You are most welcome to contact us for further information in this respect.
