New World Immigration can assist you in securing your temporary residence visa (critical skills visa) which may directly lead to permanent residency if you are eligible. The Department of Home Affairs recently published the critical skills occupation list to fill the huge gap of skills shortages in South Africa.

• Direct route to permanent residency

Qualifying criteria for a critical skills visa:
