Why Move to South Africa?


South Africa has long been a favourite destination for Students, Business People and Retirees alike, this is due to the favourable climate that we boast, lower costs and high education standards.

In recent years, we have seen an increase in international corporates leaving their footprint in our African soil, they face lower costs here and easy employment options. This is good news for the South African workforce, as more companies settle here, the more employment opportunities it creates, also allowing locals to gather international and corporate experience.

South Africa has always been a land of opportunity, with a vast variety of locals and foreigners in the mix, you are sure to have a cosmopolitan experience daily.



We have also seen a major increase in tourism in recent years, with Cape Town continuously being voted the NUMBER ONE city in the world for tourism and travel. The type of activities one can enjoy here, range from boat trips, hiking, living it up in 5 Star hotels to safaris and site-seeing.

Further to this, South Africa has also been deemed a favourite for skilled workers as we do face a shortage of certain occupations, namely in the IT sector, engineering sector, science sector and trades sector, to name a few. For a full list of the Critical Skills List, click here.
