South Africa Spousal Visa


How does South Africa Visitor Visa Works?

South Africa Spousal Visa is one of the best ways to enter South Africa and start a new business that will flourish. It allows a foreign partner (husband, wife, same-sex partner) of a South African citizen or permanent resident to migrate to SA on the basis of their relationship. It has been created to provide a long-term stay in the country. For foreign immigrants that want to visit their partner for a short time e.g. 3 months, they will need to only apply for a visitor or tourist visa.

What are The South Africa Spousal Visa Eligibility Criteria?

According to the South Africa Immigration Policies, there is no distinction between same-sex and heterosexual relationships. Married partners or life partners can apply equally and must submit proof of their relationship and also, other documentation that is necessary.

Married applicants that wish to move to South Africa through the spousal visa on a temporary permit must reveal that the marriage in question exists by presenting a marriage certificate. In the case where applicants are in a permanent arrangement or relationship, an affidavit must be signed by both the applicant. This confirms that the parties or partners are in a permanent relationship which is exclusive of others.

Furthermore, life relationships have to be supported by documentary evidence such as mutual financial arrangements and evidence of cohabitation such as bank accounts or utility bills.

Spouse Visas and Life-Partner Visas Requirements

For candidates that wish to apply for spouse immigration or life-partner immigration as a permanent choice, the key extra requirements are:

  • The candidates must have been in a living relationship with or married to the South African citizen or sponsoring South African Permanent Resident for a period of five (5) years.
  • Where candidates immigrating to South Africa are granted permanent residency, such candidate will need to prove that the relationship is still in existence two years after the permit is issued. If evidence of this is not satisfactorily supplied, a permanent resident’s permit can be revoked.
  • After a total of five (5) years, the Visa will no longer be subject to the continued existence of your relationship with your partner. At this stage, it cannot be withdrawn because of a change in marital or relationship status.
  • Based on the fact that a permanent residency permit can take up to two years to be given, you can apply for a temporary residence while at the same time applying for permanent resident status.

Can I Work or Study on a Spousal Visa?

In South Africa, a foreign spouse that possesses permanent residency is allowed to work freely, without any issues. You can also be allowed to start a business or study in South Africa. However, if the foreign spouse or partner only possesses temporary South African spousal visa, they are required by law to get the endorsement.
