Applying for a Study Permit for South Africa

South Africa is a popular destination for foreign students. The country boasts top schools, the weather is perfect, and the exchange rate makes for affordable student living.  Foreign students can apply for a Student Visa if enrolled full-time in a registered school. Student visa holders are allowed to work part time and can renew this visa as long as they are still studying.

This is a temporary residency visa and does not lead to Permanent Residency.
