Life in South Africa
Immigrating to South Africa is a BIG STEP and something that needs to be planned well in advance. Investing time in research about South Africa in the long run will definitely pay off for you and your family. The following steps will prepare you and your family in building your new lives in South Africa.
Enter South Africa with the correct temporary visas
In order to enter the Republic of South Africa, you need to obtain the correct temporary long stay visa and this process is completed by applying for the temporary long stay visa at the responsible South African Embassy or consulate. Applicants are not permitted to apply for a change of status in South Africa if they are using a tourist or medical visa. (So you may not apply for any type of temporary visa if you are currently using a tourist or medical visa and therefore need to apply in your country of origin)
