South African Permanent Residence Permits
A South African Permanent Residence Permit will allow its holder to become a naturalised citizen in accordance with a well prepared South African citizenship application under the South African Citizenship Act. Having permanent residence status attaches many privileges and benefits over long term residency for those to whom it is granted.
A South African Permanent residence Permit, also referred to as a South African permanent residence visa, may be granted to a foreigner who is able to meet the criteria set out in section 26 and 27 of the Immigration Act and Regulations 22 and 23 respectively.
