Are you part of a multi-national company? Would your company like to expand or establish a branch in South Africa?
Are you thinking of expanding or establishing a branch in South Africa? If yes, then setting up a branch in South Africa can end up being a laborious task. South African legislation and regulations are subject to change without notice at any given time and therefore we recommend using the service of a professional immigration company to facilitate the process of registering your branch and applying for the correct South African Visas.
N.B! If you plan to register your own company and work within the South African branch, then you need to apply for a South African Business Visa.
Where do we start?
You need to decide which category you would like to register your business under. There are two categories:
• Non-profit (If your company is an NGO)
Types of business structures:
• Public (Ltd) or Private (Pty Ltd) company
• Personal Liability Company (Inc)
• Business Trust
• Sole Proprietorship
• External Company (Branch of a foreign company)
Registering your company in South Africa
New World immigration is happy to assist you in registering your branch in South Africa and will need the following information;
• ID’s or Passport and address of all directors.
• 4 possible company names
The processing times to register a company can roughly take between 1 to 2 weeks.
We would like to employ foreign staff members?
There are various work visa options the South African branch can apply for, but the easiest route will be the following work visas:
Intra-Company Visa: This visa allows the transfer of foreign staff employees from a foreign branch, subsidiary or affiliate to work at your South African Branch.
Corporate Work Visa: If you are employing a predetermined number of skilled/semi-skilled/unskilled foreign workers, then the Corporate Permit allows you to employ them for a limited period of time.
