Mining Engineering Technologists – Critical Skills List

South Africa needs highly qualified mining engineering technologists. The Department of Home Affairs has recently introduced the Critical Skills List, which allows highly qualified applicants who are currently featured on this list to apply for a critical skills visa.

Mining Engineering Technologists – Critical Skills List

Applicants who qualify will be issued with a 5 year multiple entry visa to South Africa and allowing them the option of adding accompanying dependents. The critical skills visa is extendable and leads to permanent residency should the applicant possess 5 years of relevant work experience.

In order to qualify for a critical skills visa, applicants must register with a professional accredited body in South Africa, evaluate their foreign qualifications in South Africa and provide proof of registration with the applicable body. The critical skills visa requires no experience, but in most cases the professional body require you to have at least 3 – 5 years experience to pass their assessment.

The critical skills visa as of now is a very attractive option for most applicants, as this visa requires no job offer, allows applicants 12 months to secure employment in South Africa and no need to obtain a recommendation letter from the Department of Labour.
